I am so excited that I have reached the ripe age of 70. My first professional art teacher at the Arts Students League in NYC was 81. He was doing his best work. I wanted to be like him. His eyes sparkled, his presence was commanding. He was much younger than my parents who were in their 40s at that time. Whatever he was doing, I wanted to do it.
Now that I am 'elderly', everything has come into perspective. Things that bothered me no longer bother me. I sleep when I want. Eat when I want. Basically, I feel very free.
The problem is, no one, absolutely no one wants to hire me, not even for a part-time job. I've just thrown away a 4" pile of places I have applied to.
In response to all this, I have decided to start a new campaign: Old Lives Don't Matter. I would like to enlist the aid of veterinarians to offer euthanasia for anyone who wants it. We are animals after all. We 'put down' our pets! Also local animal shelters are welcome to enlist. If the expense is too much, there are online suppliers of euthanasia drugs. DIY is very popular and this may be a viable alternative.
Also, no need to request cremation. Just toss the bodies somewhere for fertilizer.
Writing and art are my passions!
