    First, he believes in Santa Claus.

    Second, he doesn't believe in Santa Claus.

    Third, he is Santa Claus.

    Fourth, he looks like Santa Claus.

    Reminds me of something I put together back when I thought I knew something

    I think I was 50

    anyway, it's a read

    and some still applies;


    Seems life is divided up into indistinct sections of which we ease in to and out of, like a balloon coaxed thru a small opening, morphing sometimes without notice:


    Eating/pooping; (part 1, discovering texture)

    Preschool (intro to social, sharing)

    School (the teacher is God)

    Teenage (high school hell, for teen and parent, hormones are an entity requiring exorcism, the teacher is Satan)

    College/military (fun, fun, fun; learn, drink, fornicate, kill)

    Pre-parental Early adult (more fun, but serious, sipping not chugging, serious pursuits, mating, career)

    Parental (joy)

    Parental hell (see teenage)

    Midlife (see early adult, attempts at hindsight adjustments)

    Grandparent (brief joy)

    Grandparental hell (hiding, see teenage)

    Musing Youngish Geezer (lazy boy-crossword-Jeopardy sessions, looking upon mate with renewed ardor, reflecting, attempting things you did with ease years ago)

    Geezer (whazzat? Whoozzair?)

    Eating/pooping; (part 2)...Nurse!? I did it again (toothless smile)

    Dirt nap


    I've let myself be too distracted thru a good portion of these, as they kinda zipped by, so I've learned to savor the moment of late.


    Is this a natural process?
