Im listening to eulogies about Gwen Ifill.   What a wonderful lady!  What a legacy.  She never faked anything...detail oriented, professional and fun.  I enjoyed her company on PBS for many years.  She just looked trustworthy.  Beyond looks...she embodied what a true journalist is like.  She chose happy.  What a wonderful smile.  

       What kind of life am I leaving behind?  No, Im not done yet but as my seventy year old birthday comes closer I am prone to introspection.  Nothing wrong with a little of that.  Me Me Me.  Who am I and what has this life meant?  I have helped some people and Im learning to help myself.  Gwen inspires me.  Not many people do.  

        What is a legacy?...from Hamilton...it is planting seeds in a garden that you will never see.  That is the fun of Art too...it lives beyond self.  I see my old work around and marvel that I did it.  It seems like a dream and yet the painting itself proves that I was there.  I made a mark.

         I took a shower today and washed my hair with some really good shampoo and conditioner.  I vamped around here taking some selfies of myself and view that as exercise.  It is fun to put on the self timer and jump into different poses.  Yep, Im a vamp.  Is that my legacy?  If it is, so be it.

Vamp it up, Z! Your hair looks soft and lovely.

Also, the story of Pence getting booed at Hamilton was the first thing I read this morning. Do you think that was his first Broadway show? I really intensely dislike that conversion therapy promoting jackass.

Z, you will someday, far in the future, leave behind a wonderful legacy. 
In the meantime- carry on.
So glad we're friends!

Well  fm   avatars are here to stay. and there are people who prefer them to real life....cant say that I blame them as real life is messy and decays...pixels are so clean and neat and fun.

I have a legacy in second life...it is just like my first life.  Same issues.  I learn from my alts.  The future is something we cant imagine.

Im reading an interesting book from Iceland now about a cord free world that gets energy from the flight of birds...people are shot by rockets and released into the sky when they die and couples are calculated to be right for each other.  ...there is also a service to alay your fears and help you not regret anything because it can look back in your life at something and tell you what would have happened if you had done it or not. 

I like imagination.  Helps me not be so afraid.

Well, what's the name of that book?

(I bought some science fiction from Amazon today. Gotta finish the Octopus book before Thursday, though, to return it to my daughter.)

You're adorable and gorgeous and that's a very sexy picture.Your hair looks lovely.

Were your hair products "volumizing"? You said your hair was thinning. Volumizers are good. Aveda is good.

I'm not worried about age or particularly more introspective than usual. I find it absolutely weird that I'm almost 70, though. WTF is that about? How can it be? Why do my knees hurt? My back? Stop it. (I just look at that - I'm almost 70 - and - how can that be?) Strangest thing that's ever happened to me.

I actually have to use a calculator to remember my age. 67. Crazy

I have only two weeks to go to seventy...that is why I am a little weird lately. Im enjoying it tho. Feeling good and no regrets...

LoveStar by Andri Snaer magnason Iceland.....it is dragging a bit at the end but has been a fresh look at a possible future.
