Do You Want To Be Famous?

Last week when Natasha Richardson died, one of our Gather friends was upset that no one made such fuss over her father's death.  I understand what she was saying but I started thinking about it and I really wouldn't want my family all over the papers when someone I loved dies.  Can you imagine having paparazzi following you everywhere trying to get a photo of you when you're grieving?

The funny thing is that when I was young, I really wanted to be famous.  Now, I value my privacy so much that I've become somewhat of a hermit.  I've always been a loner by nature but now I've gotten where I can go days without seeing anyone and be perfectly happy and content.

So, would you really want to be famous?  I mean, you'd have people following you around all the time and you wouldn't be able to have a personal life without everyone wanting to know what you are doing and who you are with.  You can't  make a mistake without the whole world knowing about it.

I feel sorry for Liam Neeson and their children because they are going through an extremely painful time right now and they have to do so in front of the whole world.  They couldn't even go to Natasha's funeral without paparazzi taking photos of them.

I think I like my anonymity.  How about you?
