If controversy can get you Dixie-Chicked, then the Pelican Press can get you Reality-Chicked. Ever since Mary Catherine Coolidge wrote about my friend, Laura, in Sarasota’s intriguing magazine, Downtown and Beyond, I’ve been keeping up with MC’s column, “Reality Chick.”
“Reality” is something I’ve been thinking about lately. I find it irritating when presidential candidates are criticized for not knowing the price of a loaf of bread. “Not in touch with reality!” people chant. Wealthy people are often criticized for being out of touch with reality. Here’s my thought – flying privately IS reality. Theirs. Homeless people are out of touch with reality. Cheerful people are out of touch with reality. And on and on it goes.
Live your real life. Whatever it is. It’s yours (but you might want to check out MC’s reality each Wednesday).
