    I'd like to be famous enough to be loved by those who know me and unknown enough that I wouldn't become a public spectacle.

    I guess I like where I'm at. Some of my music is sung all over the world. But I've always dreamed of   having a successful stage musical and scoring music for TV and film. All those may be in the works, but it's a really iffy business...

    Must keep trying. Every day is a step closer.

    I actually met a guy about 25 years ago who invented the "sniffer." It was basically a very small vacuum that had a tube going into a toilet bowl to "sniff" bad odors out. Not a bad idea, but really, would you take him seriously, either??

    @Mamelody: I'm tempted to show up in Rio for a demonstration. Make sure your guy friends are in another country...

    As a youngun, I wanted to be World Champion Saddle Bronc Rider, so I suppose that was a desire to be famous.  These days, though, I suspect (?) I'd rather be underestimated.  Lots easier to sneak up on people and actually get something done that way. lol

    I would like to be famous for the integrated plotline, in my writing, but also in my life. At various times I have thought that I might be recognized for my achievements in ape language research, in writing novels or plays, in solving certain legal/philosophical conundrums, such as my analysis of the corporate entity or my concept of commercial chastity, or for my research into linguistics and cycles in language over the long term.

    I now realize that recognition in one of these areas, if it ever did come, would be a great disappointment to me, if it were not accompanied by an understanding of how my work in one area relates to what I have done in another. In other words, it's my integrity and consistency that I wish could be recognized. (She said humbly. ;->)
