These are the thoughts and observations of me — a woman of a certain age. (Oh, my, God, I'm 65!) I'm single. I'm successful enough (independent, self supporting). I live just outside Chicago, the best city in the world. I'm an aunt and a friend. I feel that voices like mine are rather underrepresented online or in print. So here I am. If my musings resonate with you, please visit my blog again sometime.

April Prompt -- Day 11
Ironically, when this is posted I'll be in Hollywood at the TCM Film Festival, which is a tribute to the enduring allure of classic film stars.
Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid is being screened at the fest this year, so it's only fitting that I invoke Sundance himself, Robert Redford, as I answer this question.
He's said that after his breakout role as Sundance, he became "a cartoon character." That he has worried about the shadow his success has cast over his children. He maintains there's a dangerous side to celebrity.
So all things considered, I'd rather be rich but not famous.
