The world we are living is not familiar; everyday it erupts with an inconceivable corruption, acts of violence, and viciousness against humanity. It’s not the Italian roast coffee that wakes me up, it’s world news. I feel less and less a part of humanity and more like a wild creature chewing on an old bone. My outlook on social clubs, synagogue and church congregations, membership clubs, group classes, and let’s meet up organizing makes a lot of sense now. Especially if you don’t have children or a life mate. The temptation to retreat into a decorous world of fantasy is irresistible. Experience taught me that losing it, giving up, hugging the pillow with film noir on the screen will revive me. It may take two days or more, the freedom to indulge in the absurdity, tragedy, and comedy of life is available to me. I am fortunate that all those years studying real estate, listening and proving myself by placing money in the bosses pocket, trickled into my life. For my Gen-X and Millennium pals I say this; buy a duplex somewhere you may want to live that is not crowded yet!
It’s a great big wide wide world if you leave the doors open. I’m feeling really happy and if I CAN DO IT SO CAN YOU.
