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.

This blog was originally titled "Drifting Toward Planet Elderly," and it shared a journey I had with my elderly parents as they both finished their lives battling the complexities of dementia. After both passed on, I changed the title to "Living on Planet Elderly." I am a retiree who is reluctantly adjusting to the reality that she is now elderly. In July of 2021, I relocated to Middleton WI after living in Columbia MO for over 40 years. I decided that I want to experience a new and vibrant location in a cooler climate with lakes...a bucket list item of mine. I have a first cousin who lives in Madison. We have nice childhood memories, and I thought it would be wonderful to spend some time together as elders. It was. AND March 2023, I returned to Columbia. I had a wonderful time experiencing the Madison area of Wisconsin, spending time with my cousin, and making some wonderful friends. No regrets.
