There is absolutely no reason to believe actors, athletes, or any other celebrities are more knowledgeable or insightful than the rest of us about political or social issues. Like everyone, they are entitled to expressing their opinions – but those opinions need not be screamed out to the world as they do the actual jobs they are being paid so highly to do. As with most of us in this world, their work and their opinions should have separate venues for expression.
When I order food at a drive-thru, I don’t need to know the cook’s political views in order to enjoy my meal. He can most certainly act on what he believes on his own time, but I don’t expect those thoughts to be seared into my burger.
When I watch a movie, I want to be entertained. When I watch sports, I want to see a game. That’s all. I really just want them to do their job.
I am a wife and mom and, like so many of you, each day is filled with precious moments, funny moments, thoughtful pauses, a share of pain, a share of prayer, and way more random thoughts than I can reasonably account for or use - so perhaps I can put some of them to use here :)
I like to write, but I have not done enough of it in my getting-longer-by-the-minute life and I miss it. In this blog, I plan to enjoy a bit of writing and hopefully brighten your day by sharing thoughts, stories, serious stuff, fun stuff - basically, whatever seems relatable in any given week.
There are definitely days when I feel timeless, but that is not why I named this blog ImaginAgeless. And then there are those days - you know the ones! - when I am definitely feeling my age on the outside, even though inside my heart and soul feel 30 years younger (for some of you, that would land you right back in diapers, so just use your imagination) - but that is not why I chose this name, either, although it could have been.
I chose this name because I like to imagine what agelessness feels like. Sometimes, I like to imagine what it will be like when I see the face of Christ and eternity begins. Time will cease, and life will be ageless. Some days it is just gloriously terrifying to think about. Some days I don't want to think about it at all. And some days, I can't wait.
