I’ve posted stuff from zefrank1 before. Here’s a piece of his that was put to dance by Harry Shum Jr. It’s a piece about shyness and not fitting in, and it’s as informative to the non-shy as it is to the shy. It’s about a man finding his place in the world—a place to realize himself.

A serious childhood brain injury lead Scott to spend his entire life meditating on the concepts of thought, consciousness, reality and identity. It made others as strange to him as he was to them.

He is currently CBC Radio Active’s Wellness Columnist, as well as a writer, speaker and mindfulness instructor based in Edmonton, AB where he still finds it strange to write about himself in the third person.
