There is a classic rock song called Limelight, by a band called Rush. Part of the lyrics say "Living in the limelight. The universal dream." It is a great tune and is often listed as the bands best hit. Though the song is fun to listen to, and even sign along with, I can't say that my wish is to live in the limelight. I understand why the band wrote it that way and considering that they are on the stage and probably have a strong desire to be upfront and visible it probably seems that way to them. I on the other hand wish to live on the edge, behind the scenes, and out of the limelight. When I was a teen, I worked at a restaurant and the customers would walk right past me as they went down the line selecting their dessert, silverware, and drink. I could feel their eyes on me and it was very uncomfortable. I didn't like being their entertainment. That is just one example of how I cringe when I am in the Limelight.
I maybe the only one in the universe who does not want to live in the limelight. However I have found that my best work is done when others are not watching me and I am able to work on my own.
