Blogging without a GPS since 2010.
Hello and welcome to the Middle of Life.
Well, my life anyway. The title for this blog dawned on me one day when Eric Idle (of Monty Python fame for those of you out of the British Comedic loop) walked into the gallery in which I work. His presence spurred a memory – the point in the middle of the Monty Python film The Meaning of Life when it is announced in a booming voice, “Welcome to the Middle of the Film” followed by a big song and dance number. And there you have the source and inspiration for my blog title.
This blog is a place where I will share, and hopefully readers will relate to, what happens in the Middle of Life (or MoL). As different as we all are, separated by gender, socioeconomics, intelligence levels, marital status, vegetarianism, there are commonalities among humans. As humans we find solace in those commonalities, and I am human, etc. etc. You get the point, if you’re human.
I am a 40-something woman with a grown child already out on her own. So what’s next in this phase of life with no child to care for and not even a cat? (**UPDATE: I got a CAT! And oh my gosh, I love him. I also got a fabulous man, and I love him as well.)
Apparently, writing this blog is one thing and making my living as an art dealer is another. I’m looking forward to whatever comes next, like maybe learning how to play the cello, publishing one of my novels, and finishing at least one of my pathetically neglected screenplays.
Thanks for reading and thank you even more for sharing your own thoughts on this interesting place called the Middle of Life.
PS: All my photos and writings are seriously copyrighted, by very serious people in a big high rise skyscraper that looks serious. Seriously. If you want something, just ask and give credit where it is due.
