Where Do We Go From Here?

“May 21, is my birthday. Every year on Life Elsewhere, we create a show around it. One year a professor who specializes in ancient Roman history explained with peculiar enthusiasm, how the Romans celebrated their birthdays…the conversation quickly turned into an almost x-rated play-by-play account of ancient Roman’s predilection for excessive hedonistic pleasures. Then there was the time a renowned astrologer talked about star signs…that conversation managed to wander off into a startling prediction that a certain Mr. Trump’s signs were so well-aligned, he could be President…if he ever chose to run. Last year I talked about the music that changed my life…So, here we are again, another year has passed, yet this year is different…this birthday is a big one! I’ve debated with myself as to how I should handle this on the show…Age is just a number people say, we all get old, it’s part of life…a good friend of mine, who happens to be a few years younger than me, has acknowledged he is getting old by producing a witty cartoon series, titled Drifting Into Old Age. He is embracing the ironies of getting old..er…pointing out the inevitable, albeit with a slight nod and wink. So the debate for me has been, do I shout out from the rooftops…or do I let another year gracefully pass on by?”
