How Bad We Need Each Other

All the World’s a Stage

All the world’s a stage, and all the men and women merely players: they have their exits and their entrances; and one man in his time plays many parts, his acts being seven ages. ~ William Shakespeare It’s the weekend and I actually have a couple of commitments of the Second World kind to see to. I know, rare right? Well, if you happen to see a Lil Cao wandering around aimlessly please point her into the right direction. If you don’t see me, I hope you have a “you” centered weekend. If you happen to live in the State of Florida, hunker down because it’s gonna get a little Squally round these here parts. If you don’t live round here, have a few of them thar hurricanes for me. Not sure how to make it? Don’t worry about it, I’ve even included the recipe! I’m kinda a nice Cao like that. Outfit

When I’m Still I Remember the Feel of you Breathing Next to Me

The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of those depths ~ Elisabeth Kubler-Ross Bad things happen to all of us in this life. It does not make us who we are, what defines us is how we respond to these events. Do we choose to sit mute in perpetual sadness, immobilized by the acuteness of the pain? Or do choose to rise up, face the sun and learn to treasure what was lost, but,  treasure the loss only as deeply as we should treasure what is yet to come. If we choose stillness, we stagnate, stunted from life, if we choose to rise above the pain, we create another multi-faceted layer of beautifully colored patina to our soul. I choose the pursuit of rich, color-filled, gloriously, messy-beautiful life, how about you? Ear Worm

I Got Dressed Up to Ride For You

“I knew the second I met you that there was something about you I needed. Turns out it wasn’t something about you at all. It was just you.” ~ Beautiful Disaster by Jamie McGuire It’s been some kind of week. Work is shellacking me to the wall. But I was thinking, do you ever wonder why we fall out of love so often? Well, perhaps you haven’t, but I sure have in my lifetime of fallin in and out of it and I can tell you, dimes to donuts, if it’s me it’s because I become distracted. We live in such an information driven society, we are constantly connected and at times it seems easier to deal with that little contraption in our hands than it is to deal with the living breathing person standing right in front of us. We become distracted at that pivotal moment when our hearts have grown dull, our ears no longer listen to our “other” and instead of turning the power button off on that dam phone, we choose to shut our eyes to the person we profess to love. How easily we can be distracted by so many things, whether it’s our relationships with others or heck, simply with the process of driving a vehicle down the road.… Read the rest20441588450_a68a8a7834_o

I Fade Away

“Music always sounds better on Friday.” ~Lou Brutus   Seems like it was just last weekend and now here it is again. This can only mean one thing. *Sigh* It’s almost the holiday season again. Don’t get me wrong, I love the holidays, food, friends, family, it’s the spendin’ end that gets me down. There was a time when the posse and I would just all buy a bottle of wine each and spend the night ringing  in the merry. These days Auntie Cao has a busload of God children to shell out the prezzy’s to. Hmmm, I wonder if a three year old would like to share a bottle of Merlot with her aunty? Just runnin’ off at the typewriter.. I hope you have lots of really fun plans of the non-Christmas sort this weekend.

Miscreants and Our Misspent Youth

Keeping it short goes a long way ~Richard Bronson Gosh I should know that quote by heart, I practically inhaled it when I was in college learning to speak perfectly fluent business communications. I can remember spending hours writing some stiff business memo or another and then another hour hacking it to pieces to take out all those superfluous “that’s”, “very’s”, “totally’s” and any other of the complex pairings that mean the same thing. But what can I say? I’ve no excuse. I mean, you all knew I was “taking a break” from blogging, remember? So I partly blame all of you. It ain’t pretty when cows are left alone. We get bored. Hmmm, I wonder if I can use that as my defense? Naw, I seem to remember seeing that one on the nightly news when some local juveniles were out of school for the summer got into some mischief.  Do you suppose it worked for them, or did they get a schoolin’ of a more permanent sort?… Read the restScene One

Boop Oop A Doop

Work’s been kinda slow since cartoons went to color. But I’ve still got it. Boo boo be do, boo ~Betty Boop For an 85 year old flapper, I gotta say, Betty Boop’s sure does still have it going on.  She makes this avatar of more than half her age feel like I am the equivalent to Betty’s Pooped ala “too pooped to pop” fame.  But that’s ok, I know so many of you still have that inner Boop and though I am more Boo (or Moo) than Boop worthy,  I love to sit back and watch just as much as I like being a part. So here’s to our fore-mother of women’s equality and goddess-dom. This Boop’s to you! Outfit

One Pierced Moment Whiter than the Rest

Be of love a little more careful than of anything. ~ e.e. Cummings It Is At Moments After I Have Dreamed
it is at moments after i have dreamed
of the rare entertainment of your eyes,
when(being fool to fancy)i have deemed with your peculiar mouth my heart made wise;
at moments when the glassy darkness holds the genuine apparition of your smile
(it was through tears always)and silence moulds
such strangeness as was mine a little while; moments when my once more illustrious arms
are filled with fascination, when my breast
wears the intolerant brightness of your charms: one pierced moment whiter than the rest —turning from the tremendous lie of sleep

Are We All Lost Stars

“Every one of us is, in the cosmic perspective, precious. If a human disagrees with you, let him live. In a hundred billion galaxies, you will not find another.” ~ Carl Sagan I am often so humbled by my smallness in this universe. Do you ever feel that way? Often we are so busy in our lives rushing and going and then coming back again that we don’t take the moment to lay back and just stare at the vastness of the stars in the skies. Carl Sagan said it best when he said, “Look again at that dot. That’s here. That’s home. That’s us. On it everyone you love, everyone you know, everyone you ever heard of, every human being who ever was, lived out their lives. The aggregate of our joy and suffering, thousands of confident religions, ideologies, and economic doctrines, every hunter and forager, every hero and coward, every creator and destroyer of civilization, every king and peasant, every young couple in love, every mother and father, hopeful child, inventor and explorer, every teacher of morals, every corrupt politician, every “superstar,” every “supreme leader,” every saint and sinner in the history of our species lived there-on a mote of dust suspended in a sunbeam.” Yet we so oft choose to believe we are the center of the universe, a singular thought that tends to limit our full possibility, declining our potential.… Read the rest20039825048_a8c5536277_o

Love is a Losing Game

Life’s short. Anything could happen, and it usually does, so there is no point in sitting around thinking about all the ifs, ands and buts. ~Amy Winehouse If Amy Winehouse knew how prophetic her quote would be, I wonder if she would do anything differently?

Cos Freedom is a Lonely Road

Expose yourself to your deepest fear; after that, fear has no power, and the fear of freedom shrinks and vanishes. You are free. ~Jim Morrison Photo shot at Baja Norte It seems like I’ve been pushing myself so hard for four years. Four years on June 24th I’ve been here blogging nearly every single day. Three and a half years of spilling out my real life story. My life, it mirrors so many of my readers lives. After all, what are we but women (and a few men as well) living our life, insecure in spots, OK in others, striving for love, security, life, happiness, a chance to fall in love with ourselves and to awake one day and say, “you are OK, but I am OK too?” I found a love, I then lost said love. I’ve had some date disaster’s, some wardrobe malfunctions, a love-hate relationship with spanx, an accidental donation of my beloved B.O.B. to Good Will, a peek into the world of my mothers mind, the loss of a father and the realization that when I let it all go and gave up, I found the love I had always sought after, I decided to love myself and through my growth I found a mature adult relationship with a man.… Read the restPhoto shot at Baja Norte
