ME ME ME

 It's time for this Old Fart to speak.


Thank heaven I did not grow up in this revolutionized era of the Internet.  Like everything in life, the computer provides both negative and positive encounters.  


The negativity for me is how it has increased the desire for most everyone yearning to be a Star.  This ego-driven activity of showing all sides of oneself definitely does not leave anything to the imagination -- "We must keep up with the Joneses!"  It can be obsessive, cruel, and it's certainly shallow.  


For me, it horrifically slams me right back into high school, where I'm playing that silly teenager game of who's the most popular.  (During my formative years, I never felt accepted by my peers and was cast into being bullied.)  


I look at some of these pics on Instagram, FaceBook, Grindr -- practically anywhere on the Internet -- and even at my spry young age, I feel inadequate and inferior.  I am not enough, I think.  I wonder how many others feel this way -- and maybe have even committed suicide.  (I hope not.)


It seems some of us want to show what we had for breakfast, what we wore while shopping at the mall, how the gym has enlarged our muscles, and so on.  For me, I don't really care about your world.  Yes, we are a society of exhibitionists and voyeurs, which can be fine, as long as there's balance.  The Internet has provided a platform for us all to speak our mind.  You can treat it in a negative or positive way! 


It's the "Me Generation" once again; self absorbed, with a dollop of vanity.  How will all this play out?!  Will all this lead to some of us turning into monsters....?

SECRET SHIT

 No two ways about it:


Life is shit!


It's hard, difficult, challenging, complicated, 

confusing, uphill, upstream, merciless, 

painful, stressful, anxiety, panic, 

heartracing, fearful . . . 


NOT FAIR.


After living a certain amount of years it is ever so challenging

to NOT become bitter and cynical!


As in life, aging is not easy either.

In fact, it's maddening, crazymaking, and down right brutal.


As one ages I find the secret to 

warding off these negatives is to:


talk about it

scream 

breathe

exercize

dance

sing

walk

smile

laugh

inhale deeply

exhale explosively

read

 stream 

masturbate 

pets

COVID SCHMOVID

 BRING BACK COVID . . . .


Well .  . . . 


Not the disease, but the lockdowns. 

I know some people didn't fare well during the isolation, 

but I embraced it, and I welcome it again.  

What I liked about it:


1)  The quietness

2)   No obligations (or not many)

3)  NO TRAFFIC!

4)  NO CROWDS!

5)  I learned to exercise completely on my own

without a gym by discovering some FAB vids from

some FAB instructors

6)  I leisurely read books

7)  I had time for myself

8)  I had time to reconnect with those I love


I feel like the Broadway play, 

Stop The World I Want To Get Off!

MARILYN FOREVER!

 I am so tired and exhausted 

over these rightist traditionalist extremist fundamentalist Christian 

(when I hear this word I run 100 MPH the other way) 

hypocritical attitudes!


OVER IT!


Here in Palm Springs they've recently been protesting 

erecting Seward Johnson's famous art sculpture  


FOREVER MARILYN --


Some negative comments: "misogynist,"  


"hypersexualized," 


"an example of upskirting"


"We are no longer in the 1950s. 

There's a METOO culture going on,"

stated the  president of the Women's March Foundation.


Geezus, that's the point.  It's NOT 1950.  GROW UP!


Since our last President (Mr. Yuck), the idiots of America 

have risen and banded together.  

Unfortunately (or fortunately) we 

now know that nearly HALF of Americans are bigots, 

caring only about themselves, and are certainly.......unevolved.


I'm sorry to see the Decline of America in my lifetime.  


So sad.


I hope Forever Marilyn can help lift the 

other half of us Americans

into levity, laughter, and lightheartedness.






Thank you, Marilyn!
