Suffice it to say ‘we’, the proverbial ‘vox populi’, have been fawning, FAWNING I say, if not GROVELING, over CELEBRITIES since time began. (How do you think tribal sages and witch doctors invented religion? On the other hand, The Source by James A. Michener had a cogent explanation, IMO. But I digress.)
ATHLETES are people we tend to celebritize, and Olympians/Paralympians are epitomes of excellent athletes.
Over the U.S. Thanksgiving Holiday we visited the U.S. Olympic & Paralympic Museum in Colorado Springs, CO. That’s 14,115′ Pikes Peak in the background.
The entrance atrium had a multi-storied digital display of famous athletes, with a jutting observation platform that impose on numerous photos:
Olympic torches were displayed in a case designed for viewing from both sides. I was hard to photograph. Each torch has its own unique design:
Olympic medals, too, have their own unique design for each games.
Stay well, stay safe, be weird and wonderful, be shapely and designed, follow your bliss, but remember, CELEBRITY is a faux reality. 😱😂 Or whatever.
Wait a minute, I see the theme this week is CELEBRATING, not CELEBRITY.
Never mind. Ignore this.
