...we do something.  Not really, I just could not resist the chance to use the line.  No surprise it's from a movie, eh?  After The Fox.  A film full of great lines.  Also a film that puts on painful display just how vain and easily manipulated people really are.  Were.  It's from the sixties.  No, are.  We haven't changed at all.  No, yes we have.  We are more vain and much more easily manipulated now than we were then.  Doesn't hold out much hope for the future does it?  No, it does not.  But then, what does?  Nothing.  Look, we're right back where we started.  And we always will be.  Right back where we started.  That's where we will stay so long as we refuse to grow up.  And boy (girl too) do we ever refuse to grow up.  And why should we not?  Don't we respect and revere and worship eternal children?  We all want to have smooth unlined faces, faces that show no marks of having lived and experianced life.  Perfect thick hair without any touch of grey (gray?).  Firm tight bodies that look good in ugly clothing. We want the lives of movie stars, who live a life of make-believe on or off the screen (I don't include stage, those people have to be able to act, remember more than one line at a time, do their own strunts and fight scenes, and not trip over the furniture, all in one run 'cause no one yells cut on stage), or sports figures who get paid more than teachers (or you or me) for remaining on the school yard playing childrens games, or Rock Stars who mimic emotions but exist in a haze of the moment, or politicians who get to be bullies with pay checks, rewarded for pushing us around and stealing our lunch money, or...nevermind, you either get it or you don't.  Aint life something?  Oh, it's something alright, and maybe we, or me anyway, were and are better off when we were doing nothing.  Because that's what the something most of us are doing amounts to: nothing.  Hey, look, I'm back!  Ranting merrily merrily on that life is just a dream.  For some of us a bad dream, for some of us a good one.  Can you tell the difference?  The basic measure is: if it's his/her/their dream it's good, and if it's my dream it's bad.  Because I'm the only person in the world who hasn't got what I want. Well, that's just not true.  Nobody has what they want.  Even those who have what they want don't want it but want what someone else has, who, by the way, doesn't want it but would rather have what you have, which you wish was something else you don't have.  Me?  I want it all, unless I already have it.  If I have it, it must not be worth having.  You know what I want?  I want to hear from someone here at dampAFTERNOON that likes what they have and is just happy to live and let live.  I would like to hear at least one of you say you love your life and don't want to be anyone else but you.  I want that for me.  Greedy needy me.  It would make my day because it would mean that there is still hope.  Something rather than nothing.  But hey, what's the fuss?  Is your business my business?  Nope.  Is my business your business?  Nope, except that I make it so.  I should just sit back and take it easy and keep my opinions to myself...at least until I'm famous and rich and allowed to have a public opinion.  That's going to be a really long wait, and at my age there isn't much chance that I have that much time, unless I become a Philosopher, which takes about a minute because as such you don't need anything but opinions, so, as usual, there I am, gone.
