I watched the actors and the actresses. Posing. Preening. Pontificating.
The annual, incestuous gathering of like-minded souls.
The ones who have risen to the lofty heights of fame and fortune.
I wondered how they feel when the lights go down on their lives.
When they begin to fade from view. When fewer people gaze in awe.
I wonder how they manage their decline.
And, then….I wondered how I’ll manage mine.
