The Ponder Days

I am just a sojourner, an artist wandering through life with a sense of wonder about it all. Come ponder with me. This year is about observation and perspective.

This blog is interactive and is at its best when comments are left and opinions shared, lively discussions generated, and perhaps with your favorite beverage.

I would love to read your comments. Please, don't be shy...

Living Your Spirit # 37 ~ Fairy Tales are Pretend

It is interesting to me that many people complain about getting older, something over which there is no control. The media has finely crafted a capitalist consumerism misconception that younger is better, that age should be feared, that we need to be pretty, wrinkle free, and quite frankly, stay dumb enough to believe it all. Anti-aging is a multi-billion dollar business. It is also discriminatory. Please don't waste precious energy trying to stop the clock. You can't, and really, you don't want to. There are many people whose clocks were stopped too early who would love to be here getting old with us. Thank your lucky stars (or whomever your belief system thanks) for each precious day! Enjoy being a real person!
