Illusion v. Reality

Check out this YouTube video my son Ev forwarded to me. While it has nothing to do with pursuing dreams, it has everything to do with societal attitudes towards aging.


  1. The parody is hysterical and probably more effective than the original you posted.

    "Thank god our perception of reality/beauty is distorted. No one wants to look at ugly people" is the tagline for Lardo, the model turned into a "real" person for the billboard. (Follow the link from the embed).

    Thank goodness for YouTube!

  2. As you say, Matthew, thank goodness for YouTube!

    P.S. I'll have to check out your novel, which I see on your profile is downloadable from your website. Pretty cool, all this new technology.
