Random Thoughts on “Awareness”  

Ever wake up in the morning and physically, things feel slightly off? For example, a slight cough or stiff joints? In those circumstances, sometimes I used to  wonder what I could stave off what might become a problem. Then it occurred to me…

It’s a fine line between awareness and expectation. Sometimes  we call expectation “awareness”, for example, when something seemingly bad happens. We expect that it’s the start of something worse yet to come and feel compelled to brace ourselves. However, in so doing, could we possibly be calling more lousy things into fruition? I wonder… We do it, believing it’s the more “responsible” choice. But is that actually being aware or anticipatory? It occurs to me that this kind of “awareness” may not serve one as well as we think.

I was contacted by OkCupid a month after signing up, telling me I was in the top 5% response rate and asking my secret. I was stunned. I was in my 50's! Beats me! It's not as though I posted racy photos or I was plagued by blinding beauty! However it served it's purpose,in terms of finding dates,but finding a mate? Not so much. Along the way, I had some pretty nutty encounters, some more lethal than others. While my blog started as a retelling of these amorous tales, it's morphed into a myriad of stories, including many from my time on the planet. They range from working with the amazing Henry Winkler, auditioning for Nadia Boulanger, an attempted assault by one of Al Capone's retired former henchmen, and offering a homeless man (who was also a convicted murderer) a place to stay for the night. While most of this is older material but I'm considering penning epilogues or postmortems from my post pandemic, post #metoo perspective, as well as sharing more. So many stories to tell! Thanks for stopping by! Cheers!
