End of History Illusion
Misperception humans have that they won’t change much as a person (personality-wise) for the rest of their lives
Paradox of Aging
The fact that older people are happier despite declining health, independence, and so on
Doesn’t anybody check how these things appear on newsfeeds???
I wrote a short poem in tanka format about a week ago. In it, I pondered if my life story were a jigsaw puzzle, what would it look like? Now, and what I hope it would look like at the end.
Today, I finally did that “mental exercise” that could also be good for a writing exercise. My answer is below, but if you want to try it yourself, I would suggest you not read further until after you have tried it yourself, so as not to be influenced by ideas. 🙂
I enjoyed the exercise, and I hope you will, too, if you decide to give it a try.
The poem will be on my poetry blog on November 2nd. I have a large back log of short poems so I am sharing one or two per day in chronological sequence among sequences of poems in common collections.
I have Transformers wallpapers on this site for G1 Transformers and movie Transformers, but here comes the War for Cybertron video game Transformers wallpapers! These wallpapers are 1920 x 1200 pixels in size, but they are also good for 1680 x 1050, 1440 x 900, 1280 x 800 and 960 x 600 pixel monitors. Other sizes are already created (below) or to come.
