The world is crazier than most people know. But I know. I was a clinical social worker for forty years. I am a witness. I retired from social work to write about the sad, the mad, and the savage; with whom I have spent most of my life. I have decided to translate these stories into fiction, because, as a co-worker once said, "You couldn't make this sh*t up. No one would believe you."

On Immortality

"...I would be horrified to be immortal and have to keep enduring life's insulting jokes for eternity. I was just trying to stop the depressing wearing down of my body. Oh, why could we not just stop aging at about forty or so and then die at the normal time?" (Jane of the Jungle, p. 47)

Wanting to live forever is a popular theme ... but ... the maniacs can have it. Can you say b-o-r-e-d-o-m? Plus, I happen to believe there are other lives besides this one. What they are exactly, I have no idea; but I do know that energy can be changed, but never created or destroyed. And we are energy, are we not?

Although it seems, less so as we get older.... But scientists are hot on the trail of the cure for progeria, the disease in which children age prematurely and die at 12 or so. In their quest, they found out about a critical factor in the aging process .... yes! I vote for Life 2.0, or Adulthood, Second Stage.

Think about it. You could:

  • be a babe forever
  • no more achy joints
  • you could scratch where it itches
  • get enough sleep
  • live long enough to sample every micro brewery in the world.
Of course, defining the lifespan would pose problems. How long is a life? 100 years? 300? Uh.... and if it were three hundred, would I have to stay married to the same guy for 275 years?
