Mistress Marilyn's POV
No shit, Tempus Fugit!
Pretending~

Carlisle-and-me
Have I ever mentioned how much of my adult life feels like pretending . . . pretending to be adult, to be competent, to be in control.

At some point all the pretense becomes real, but the feeling of make believe never goes away. Occasionally I believe this is the secret to my happiness.

It's probably not a facet of character to fake it, unless we're talking about character in the sense of a drama . . .

Life as a drama requires all kinds of characters. And we can't play all the roles, even in our own life story. And sometimes we can't even manage to properly fill that leading role.

When you're young you spend a lot of time trying to be yourself. But as you grow you learn that yourself is a blend of all the things you want to be and all the things you can be and some of the things you'll never be. You're always developing your own character, just like when you're writing a story.

It ain't over 'til it's over.

That's one of the best summaries of what life is all about.

Sure glad that your board meeting went well. Hope the rest of today gets over for you. Boy the tennis sounds so fun, I would die to see them live, as I have never done that.

Love my new television and can't wait for some good tennis matches to watch on it. It has a great picture.

Thank you so much for all of the nice presents for my birthday and the book will be great to read.

Charlie and I had a good time going to Costco.

Have a good week-end.

This reminds me exactly of a beautiful song by Jewel. Goodbye Alice in Wonderland

This is an excellent post, and I understand what you're saying.

I think you're cool.

And love the icon pic. You're also so very pretty. I always wondered what that would be like, lol.

Love ya
