Recently, I wrote an article on celebrity opinions (“Opinions: Everybody’s Got One”, Hot Psychology. March 2005). I explored how, though we get fed up with hearing what a rock idol, sports star or movie celebrity has to say about politics or world events, it’s not necessarily what they say, but when and where they say it. It seems that venues like award shows are becoming the airing ground for pet political agendas.
Here, I’m giving you the reverse situation. A space for opinions, perhaps even rants, but no celebrity. I’m just an ordinary person, a writer, a mom, a wife – a student of life. I was in a Sears fashion show when I was a child, and I did have a piece of artwork chosen to “Go to New York” in elementary school. (I’m still trying to figure out what exactly that meant – I’m hoping it’s not a version of ‘Old Yeller went to live on a farm’) but I remain a non-Diva.
I want to share the trivial as well as earth shaking, the silly and the heart wrenching.
Wish me luck and Godspeed.
