Can this be ahelp to anyone?

Take it from me, one who should know. Being old is obviosly a great gift, considering the alternitive, yet, there are so many annoyances that seem to get greater as the years accumulate. The little things that you could tolerate orf dismiss out of hand make you, the supposed wise one, ashamed to react.

SOME THOUGHTS

I DO HAVE SOME RELUCTANCE TOWARD SITTING DOWN TO WRITE ON THIS WEB LOG.OH, THERE'S THE USUAL WRITERLY LACK OF DISCIPLINE, LACK OF INSPIRATION, LAZINESS. I SUPPOSE I'M MORE OF A PASSIVE PERSON THAN I USED TO BE IN MY "CREATIVE" DAYS. RATHER THAN WRITE A CATALOG OF ACTIVITIES, WHAT I'D PREFER TO WRITE WOULD BE A RANT, A PASSABLE ESSAY, A DESCRIPTIVE PIECE, EVEN A NOVELETTE, IN THE STYLE, PERHAPS OF KINGSLEY AMIS. NOW I REALIZE, THAT LACKING THE MOTIVATION TO UNDERTAKE THE HARD WORK, I WILL BE WRITING FOR ME, RETURNING TO THE CATALOGUE OF MY ACTIVITIES THAT I SO DECRIED ABOVE.
AFTER SPENDING MUCH OF THE RAINY WEEKEND IN DOORS, MONDAY NIGHT I WENT TO SEE THE LONG AWAITED PERFORMANCE OF THE SHAKESPEARE SOCIETY AT THE DANNY KAYE THEATRE. A MOST SUCCESSFUL AND ENJOYABLE EVENING, TOPPED OFF BY A SUPPER AT SEL ET POIVRE WITH A GROUP OF INTERESTING FOLK INCLUDING MY FRIEND, DEREK, TO WHOM I OWE SINCERE THANKS FOR HIS HAVING INTRODUCED ME TO THE SHAKESPEARE SOCIETY.
YESTERDAY, WAS MY SECOND ACTING WORKSHOP OF THE SEASON AT THE STEIN CENTER, AS USUAL, AN ENJOYABLE EXPERIENCE FOR ME AS WELL AS FOR THE ATTENDEES, MY STUDENTS.
TODAY I'M OFF TO THE BRONX BOTANICAL GARDENS WITH LILLIAN, A BUS TRIP THAT INCLUDES A TOUR AND LUNCHEON, THE TRIP ARRANGED BY THE TURTLE BAY ASSOCIATION.
TOMORROW NIGHT, THE NY PHILHARMONIC....SHOSTAKOVICH. WONDERFUL!
