Coger el toro por los cuernos…Grab the horns by the bull…

Je sais…the brain sometimes goes to Spanish by default…when it feels like it, to English and when I feel like it, to French!  The bull by the horns, but it made me laugh when it came out of the Je ne sais quoi neurons.  There it goes again! I really was not feeling like goingContinue reading “Coger el toro por los cuernos…Grab the horns by the bull…”

What has to happen for me to be totally happy…

Upon returning today from my exercise class…every Friday morning I really so don’t want to go, but once I am there dancing and lifting 2 pound weights, I am so glad I made the trip.  I feel re-energized and up in tune with the world. So after I had my lunch today, I started ponderingContinue reading “What has to happen for me to be totally happy…”

When I leave planet earth…things left undone…

  I was pondering while preparing my salad just a few minutes ago…I like to leave it alone until I get really hungry and it gets to be room temperature. Back to the pondering…I do that a lot!  While slicing the cantaloupe I thought that when I depart this world, I want to leave withContinue reading “When I leave planet earth…things left undone…”

Christmas Spirit…Welcome Home!

This is a so much better picture than the last one, when I was all discombobulated. Now I feel like I look in the picture…in balance, happy and a bit regal.  Yes, I feel like a princess most of the time. I am stuck!  Nowhere to go…the annoying muses have left for Florida and all IContinue reading “Christmas Spirit…Welcome Home!”

It’s just too much…snow in the blog…wreath on the car…lights on the yard…

Yeah!  This business of this time of the year is just becoming too much!  I saw snow falling on my website and then I realized I needed to change the picture because it had fall flowers…so even tired as I am, I needed to change the scenery.  Here I am!  Tired from shopping, putting aContinue reading “It’s just too much…snow in the blog…wreath on the car…lights on the yard…”

Years going by…leaves turning…freezing already…

Yes, I am ready to rent a shack in Florida or the Caribbean, but I must swallow my pride and bundle up…layers upon layers… Now, back to the real deal…After you reach the sixth decade plus…what a difference does it make?  A whole lot!! For once, the maintenance on the body and mind reaches an allContinue reading “Years going by…leaves turning…freezing already…”

Me and my new pal…Andrew…my guitar…

This photo shoot session surely didn’t last long.  This temperamental model/artist was very impatient and short-tempered today.  Who knows what’s going on in her life.  She is supposed to be a happy contessa, but it seems not all is golden in Happyville. Well, now I am back in the first person singular…I have a newContinue reading “Me and my new pal…Andrew…my guitar…”

Hipser…new word invented by me…seniors-don’t-wanna-be…that’s me…

Yep!  I have invented a new word…Hipser, seniors-don’t-wanna-be!  That,  in other words, is me. Let me explain…there are categories of seniority…real seniors, seniors, seniors that wanna be, and seniors-don’t-wanna be.  No insult or demeaning to anyone who has achieved this milestone.  Some of us are already resting in peace.  Not a bad thing either.  LifeContinue reading “Hipser…new word invented by me…seniors-don’t-wanna-be…that’s me…”

The Nerve of that “Other” Woman…

Someone told me recently that after you hit 80’s, all is downhill from there on.  But I have my own hypothesis…”After I hit my 60’s, my whole world is always colliding with the parallel world that is in my mind.”  Let me prove this… I was in a store looking for warmer clothing to prepare forContinue reading “The Nerve of that “Other” Woman…”
