It's All An Illusion ...

You know, a picture is worth 1000 words.

Somewhere online I saw a YouTube posting of the infamous Courtney Love/Madonna encounter at the 1995 MTV Video Music Awards.

I was gobsmacked over some of the comments on the blog, like, "Wow, Madonna looks so young!"

Considering she was 37 then, I guess it would be really shocking for a younger person who wasn't "plugged in" to her awesomeness back then to interpret the Valley of The Dolls Gucci look she was rockin'.

Me? If you think I didn't rush right out and score the boy version of this smokin' Gucci outfit, you'd be wrong, but I digress ...

The past 10 years have really flown by. There are times when I feel my mind, perception and energy still live there, and there are times when I almost refuse to believe I was even alive then.

Still, it's fun to look into the faces of people you're aging with. They seldom appear old to me. And it's not until you break out the photo/video vault that you're reminded of the dewy-eyed innocence of youth.
