Jer, you inspired this one. Much obliged. :)

Worshipped for all of
the wrong reasons;
we bow down to the
celebrity gods they are,
whether they deserve
it or not.
Jealousy, I think,
the reminder
of what we are not -
those famous or infamous
making the news we
wish we were.

(c) 2006, Karla Dorman.

Dear Karla,

We mustn't compare ourselves to others ... there will always be those who we feel are greater or lesser. Be thankful for your own gifts and the Creator who gave them. YOU are special!

Love & Light,

Such is the nature of mankind we always look for heroes but then when we look for them we wish we were they instead of ourselfs.

So true. But you know to have peace of mind and life is worth more than all riches. When I lost my job I changed to a simple life style and it is so liberating... Excellent message..

BTW, thanks for your congrats on Englands win xx

I know that celebrity can be ugly, but it can also be pretty too. I love it when celebrities use their notoriety to do good for others, as in the case of Angelina Jolie. She rakes in the bucks, and the flash bulbs, but she's able to give back and encourage others to follow her example of adopting children from third world countries that need homes. Of course that little snafu about Brad Pitt's marriage to Jennifer Aniston wasn't one of her finest moments, but I like the other stuff. There are a number of people in Hollywood considering adoption of third world children now that might not have done so without her bringing it to the forefront. Just some thoughts. On another note, I love this piece my friend. I love all of your stuff, as well as the writer. Michelle

But often, I think, making news we are also glad we are not a part of.

Oh, you are right, Karla, and thanks for giving me the kudos, and I agree with Susan also, these people, for the most part are walking around as they like to say about Bush, in empty suits. But the masses out here clamor for the most ridiculous news and photos from them. Gawd!!!!

Brava Karla! Only one is to be worshiped! Creator! This is a well aimed bullet that should strike its target! Great shot!

In reality these stars come with more bagagge then any of us here. They perform mosy of their lives without having a source to locate themselves. Those I've met were extremely introverted with shadows some of us couldn't cope with...then there are the exceptions...

Yeah, I think its overboard too.
Who really cares who has what or is married to who.......
not I
I have enough manure on my own brain to care for such trivilaties
Good points here Karla
