It’s All About Us….or Not

Yesterday was my first viewing of “Synecdoche, New York,” and although some say it is “too artsy,” I loved it.  I think I sat transfixed for the last third of the film, smiling and thinking to myself, “Yes…yes…this is what it’s all about.”  Don’t miss this masterpiece.

So what is this blogging thing all about?  Is it a portal through which our egos are permitted to bloat and brag…an assurance that each blogger can leave his/her mark on the world… or simply a platform on which to experience life on this planet together?  I guess I’ll find out.

I’m not even sure why I’m joining in on this.  I suppose I’m feeling the need to comment on what’s going on in the world before heading off to “The Next Adventure.”  That’s what I call death.  So before I die, why not yammer on with millions of others?  The challenge, of course, will be to yammer honestly and authentically.  Big challenge.

Just another voice in the wilderness from someone who's lived on this planet for over 70 years and faces permanent residency on Planet Elderly. Update: As of March 2, 2017, I turned 70. I'm now an official resident of Planet Elderly. Dad passed away September 22, 2016. In late March 2017 I was able to move Mom closer to me where she resided at a memory care assisted living community until being downsized to a skilled nursing senior community in October 2018 in Columbia, Missouri. I view the Parental Journal entries as part therapy, part family history, sort of a case study of our family's journey with dementia. It's quite an adventure.
