City of Roses
Nah, I don't do things for the glory or for flattery. If others are touched by what I'm doing, whether it's directly or indirectly, then I am certainly glad to hear that, but volunteering implies a selfless motivation, and I wouldn't have it any other way!
Yeah, I'm really starting to deal with the psychology of celebrity, which I've always found quite fascinating. I will say I think it's encouraging when, while I certainly have nothing against celebrities in Hollywood for instance, that it's great when people all across the world in their own communities get recognized for things that may seem mundane to many on the surface, but deep down truly mean a lot, whether it is putting out a fire, or cutting off one's locks of hair to show support to children battling cancer, etc. There's nothing wrong with a little recognition!
Now that I've said that, I hope my semi-celebrity status doesn't spin out of control when I do my first poetry reading in four years in August at ErosFest!
