2. Funny you should mention it, but I was just talking with a friend the other day about how in college you could seem to work two jobs, go to school, and “hang out” with your friends for hours on end. And watch all your TV shows, and do all your errands, and….
Does time speed up or do we slow down as we grow older? Interesting question.

3. I have no idea why but this post reminded me of that Stevie Nicks/Fleetwood Mac song “Sweet Girl”. I guess whenever I think of a middle aged woman with no children and no husband who is still out there kicking ass, looking good and loving life I think of Stevie. She could’ve gone the normal route but instead “chose to dance across the stages of the world”. Not a bad life.

4. This story is full of flavor. Unbelievable about that psychologist. Variety, spicy.

5. Don’t you just hate it when people tell you to “act your age” or “you’re too old to wear that”? I plan to keep doing what I want for as long as I can. I’ll be 50 next mont and I’m just getting better.

8. When you were 30 everybody was getting married or remarried; you were living with Zachary and wouldn’t keep knives in the house for fear that you would use it on him.…………………………….Why?
Great description of your characters. They are real to me as they were in your life and you can actually picture them as your words capture them heart and soul.
But, I am wondering if you are going to put them together in the book.
I believe you have enough classic romantic and nostalgic narrative posts to make a book of over 500 pages and good enough for next summer.
May be you have not noticed the fact that the way you described all the people you have mentioned so far showed how much you appreciated them beyond the face value.
I try to study each one from your words.
You are doing a lot for the preservation of the culture of NY in your chronicles. Because, people will read your diaries and learn a lot about the life in NY during the period recorded in your diaries.
Americans will love your book.
I wish you all the best.

9. I’m a boomer. When I was 30, I could stay up all hours of the day, but, 20 some years later, I don’t want to do that any more. Come to think of it, I don’t even have the hair I had back then.

10. I felt like I was reading a great book. I’m not yet thirty, and it really is great insight into the lives of the generation before mine. Thanks for posting it, glad you did it!

11. To me, with absolutely no insult meant, this is a pure example of unadulterated, core level, putrid self serving, selfishness.
Excellent writing, and excellent style, but the content… just made me sick for the lack of anything near a perception of purpose. Everything described showcased a “me only, and me first” mentality, totally devoid of a calling or devotion. Being satisfied with a life is not anything near being happy with YOUR life. We all have a purpose, and it usually has nothing to do with ourselves. This entire saga screams of everlasting retreat from that purpose, and a constant struggle to satiate the desire for self indulgence so prevalent in the “baby boomer” generation. It has become habit, and even chic to glorify the complete lack of drive and disconnectedness that have plagued the offspring of “The Greatest Generation”.
Again, please do not take anything I have said as a personal attack or a direct assault on anyone. I simply tired to express my initial reaction to the piece.

12. i’ve been thinking about the whole notion of time passing lately. i remember when i was a little kid and my parents would take me to parties they went to and put me to bed while they partied with their other young friends in the other room. now, we have parties sometimes and sometimes our friends bring their young kids and put them to bed in the other room.

13. ps- don’t bother visiting “G”’s site. This person has a post criticizing Hillary Clinton for being “friendly” to gay people.It would almost be funny if it wasn’t so tragically bigoted.

14. Wonderful piece of writing, I laughed outloud at the glitter sock emergency .

15. G, your comment could have used some editing to not be personal. If you read Pia enough there’s a lot of purpose but also personality. I think there are plenty of manifestos around.

16. Lisa: If you want to keep people from my site, I really do ask that you not use fictional accounts or skewed views of a post to do it. That post didnt make fun of Hillary for being nice to gay people. It made fun of Hillary for jumping back and forth as she gears up for the Presidential election. Once minute, she is in India, saying how she understands the outsourcing of jobs, the next she is in Anwar crying about the horror it would be to drill there.
Then she is supporting the war on terror, but quickly going back over and doing something to look friendly to the gay community.
It isnt any one of the acts that are funny, it the combination. I know you probably went to my site, then looked for that “One” you could use as a quick weapon… but please, my opinions are plenty open for attack without you twisting the meaning around to fit your purposes.
Doug, I agree with you. I emailed Pia back (she emailed me essentially the same thing), and expressed that my intention was not to attack her, but the post. I have carried this over to her new post, regarding my comment.
