A way to survive the empty nest and a "cracked "relationship with a fun daily challenge of new experiences, reflections, sources, and some biblical guidance. I hope this blog which offers a fun journey to survive by trying something new, either vicariously or by doing, will result in a survival tool kit to replace the past familiar doing, giving, and/or incorporating the interest of your child or your long gone love interest, with some new self interest(s).
Day 126 A Day with the Stars, Hollywood Wax Museum, SC
Elves at the dinner
Having an “unusual
sense of humor” is a characteristic of a
self-actualized person according to the psychologist, Maslow, and that is just what you need to
enjoy a silly wax museum. It’s pure “cheesy” fun. My son and my friends did this
in South Carolina as we searched the Hollywood Wax Museum for the most real looking figure and as we took a lot
of ridiculous pictures.

In a wax museum it seems like everyone enjoys bursts of excitement when they see one of their favorite stars. We pretend that the person is really there.
You jump into the picture with the wax figure and have a moment of fame. You also
become an expert on the ones that “look really real” as if any of us really know what these people actually look like
–we have never met any of them. It’s fun to play, and a wax museum gives us all
a reason to do just that!
You will leave full of smiles laughing at your silliness.
