Arial

Tags: arial
I hate the typeface font, "Arial" but it is the one that is most available to readers of blogs on the Internet --- it is the one that is always included with most operating systems ---- it is the one that comes with almost every computer sold everywhere ----- and it is plain and easy to read ---- but it is everywhere all the time in every circumstance.

And now it is here because it is so universally-used.

Arial's counterpart, "Georgia" is almost as bad for being everywhere all the time and common and mundane but it too is easy to read and so I am using it for headlines for the time being.

I do not like being like everybody else but a little of being like everybody else can help sometimes and this is one of those times ..... I guess.

The second point I want to rant about this morning is this:

If you think you can grow old in The American Paradigm and not become sequestered and isolated you have another think coming!

The time comes when your family is either dead or scattered to the four winds, doing their own thing and hardly ever thinking about you .... if they think about you at all.

You read about their exploits and their little fun times together but you are hardly ever invited to be a part of what they are doing --- and to be quite frank with you, I personally am such a hermit that I really do not want to be a part of the lives of young people because I am too old to cope .... too tired to run the race with them and keep abreast of them .... but it would be nice once in awhile to have those who are supposed to love you reach out to you instead of you having to do all the reaching out to them ....

No, I do not want to sit and look regal while looking over endless albums of other people's baby pictures and no, I do not want to snuggle squealing babies on my lap or watch them run amok all over the carpets.

So as much of a tragedy as getting old might be for some other people, I am like the Apostle Paul: Whatsoever situation I find myself in, therewith am I content!
