Beauty Begins

Beauty begins the moment you decide to be yourself. ~ Coco Chanel One time, about six months ago, I thought to meet Dr. Ben at the door like this. I didn’t think it through too much, much to my dismay. I scrambled home early, showered and donned some pretty knickers, put on a coat (don’t be a hater, fake fur I sware) and proceeded to wait. And wait. That’s the thing about doctor’s, their schedules are pretty flexible with emergencies and unplanned changes of plans. The longer I waited the more tipsy I became. I am rather shy by nature and there was no way I was pulling this off without a glass of wine or twelve. Anyway as it grew later, a rather upset and needy KT the Wonder Dog (her nickname for herself) made it rather apparent that if I didn’t take her out she was going to find one of my favorite things to make her deposit on. That’s the thing about not thinking it through. A thinker would have at least put on clothes, a drinker would just go for it, I mean, how long can it possibly take?… Read the rest25414064302_6faf6e685b_o

If I’d Only Known Then

Plenty of people miss their share of happiness, not because they never found it, but because they didn’t stop to enjoy it. ~ William Feather This week just flew by. On January 1st, if you had told me we would be three months past Christmas in a blink of an eye, I’d have called you a dirty dog liar. But looky there, it’s March 3rd. I wonder if that means I am finally of the age where, in the old days, I’d look at a person (insert parents name here) and think to myself “boy are they old and out of touch.” If only I’d been wise enough to know that, no, I was the one who didn’t quite know life yet. Anyway, I digressed from a simple have a happy weekend to geezer speak. I don’t know about you, but I think I am going to find me an old person this weekend and let them glean a little knowledge on me. Wishing you a fun weekend with a little wisdom tied to the back end.

As Wide as the Sky

I can do a week in a weekend. That’s not how efficient I am, that’s how little I work. ~Jarod Kintz, 99 Cents For Some Nonsense Well looky there, we survived another one.

Slowly the Urge to Get Back Up Leaves Me With the Desire to Sit Back Down

My Mother is five-foot-two, and I’ll be honest with you- She’s the only person I’m scared of ~ Kiefer Sutherland I’ve recently slowly returned to the second world and actually shot five different blog styles. Yay me! Any way, it’s a slow process. The mum is moved and happy as a pig in, well, what ever it is pigs waller in. Now I am onward towards my newest mum challenge, you may know the one “But they said it was a “free” trial” (as opposed to the $49.95 a month that’s been showing up on her bank statement). Can someone please send me a Xanax and a cup of jo? Yeah, it’s almost that bad, parents, you have to love em because from what I’ve researched you can’t leave them safely at the fire station. As an aside, I recently was asked to style for Versus‘ magazines Spring/Summer edition. I spent a small fortune researching the heads, at an average 2500L’s a shot the exploration is not for the light of wallet.… Read the rest25059446771_a40e4a4451_o

And Then Life Happened

I am sure that if the mothers of various nations could meet, there would be no more wars. ~ E. M. Forster Photo By: Feint Delusions If you follow me regularly you probably have noticed my blogging has become less this past few weeks. If you’ve followed my blog for a while now, you’ve probably been told a story or two about my five foot nothing tiger mom who scares the heck outta me. Seriously, when she says jump, the Cao jumps over the moon. A few years ago before my father died my mom wanted to package up and slim down their current lifestyle from a 5000 square foot home to a 1400 square foot villa in a gated retirement community. The move helped my mum at the time because my father was in the throes of dementia and their was a nursing home on the site should my father need assisted living. My father passed away a little over 2 years ago and my mum has strongly suggested she is tired of being surrounded by a bunch of old people. Yeah, random right? She is in her mid 70’s.… Read the restPhoto By: Feint Delusions

Friends

“It is more fun to talk with someone who doesn’t use long, difficult words but rather short, easy words like “What about lunch?”  ~
A.A. Milne, Winnie-the-Pooh I logged into Facebook a second ago and found it was “Friendship Day.” So to my friends here, there and everywhere, Happy friendship day, I am so blessed to be surrounded by you all! You are the smartest, funniest and wisest people I know. “I think if I’ve learned anything about friendship, it’s to hang in, stay connected, fight for them, and let them fight for you. Don’t walk away, don’t be distracted, don’t be too busy or tired, don’t take them for granted. Friends are part of the glue that holds life and faith together. Powerful stuff.”

Bully

I realized that bullying never has to do with you. It’s the bully who’s insecure.  ~Shay Mitchell I was going to write a longwinded commentary on this topic, luckily for me, and more probably for you, my work is taking over my life. As you know I rarely, if ever, speak of politics on this blog. I find the subject to be very private to an individual and very polarizing to a group. That said, I want to just throw something up here for you to think about. As you know cyber-bullying is the use of electronic technology to torment, threaten, harass, humiliate, embarrass or otherwise target a victim.  I’m sure you find this behavior abhorrent, I know I sure do. Heck, the sad part is, when it’s someone in authority doing the bullying and his followers find the behavior acceptable. This kind of “group think” typically creates a rather hostile atmosphere, don’t you think? Not sure what I’m talking about? I was reading The New York Times  over the weekend and ran across an article on Donald Trump.  … Read the rest24103391384_427847639c_o

Glamour is As Glamour Does

Glamour is about feeling good in your own skin. ~ Zoe Saldana “Elegance is a glowing inner peace. Grace is an ability to give as well as to receive and be thankful.

Sing A New Song

If in the twilight of memory we should meet once more, we shall speak again together and you shall sing to me a deeper song. ~ Khalil Gibran Life is a song – sing it.
Life is a game – play it.
Life is a challenge – meet it.
Life is a dream – realize it.
Life is a sacrifice – offer it.
Life is love – enjoy it. ~ Sai Baba Are you going to be the type of person who sits back and lets life happen to you, or will you get up and face it head on, creating your own destiny? Just something to think about if you were sitting there thinking you needed something to think about. Outfit

On Parenting

If your kids are giving you a headache, follow the directions on the aspirin bottle, especially the part that says, ‘keep away from children.’ ~ Susan Savannah I figured out today that it’s probably a good thing I can’t have children. They require work and care you see, and as a non-morning person I’m pretty sure they don’t have too many children who live on bankers hours. Do they? Case in point, lately, Katy, you know, my resident Duchess Dee.Oh.Gee, other-wise known as the Jack Russell Terrior-isT has been leaving hints that she is considering putting me up for adoption. You can imagine the behavior, leaving my favorite T-shirt at the door next to my sneakers, pulling my backpack out of the closet, typing and printing a “new mom wanted poster” and sticking it on the fridge. A few months ago she started having seizures, since she is 15 years old this probably isn’t too uncommon. Her “DockTore” as she calls him, put her on a low dose of phenobarbital, which though it has stopped the seizures, judging by the way she constantly looks like she wants to chew on my leg, I think it makes her feel hungry all the time.… Read the restOn Parenting

If Only I Could

“Sometimes things become possible if we want them bad enough.” ~T.S. Eliot “If you are a dreamer come in
If you are a dreamer a wisher a liar
A hoper a pray-er a magic-bean-buyer
If youre a pretender com sit by my fire
For we have some flax golden tales to spin
Come in!
Come in!”

Troubadour’s and Minstrel’s

Thank the God’s for the Troubadour’s and Minstrels~ Cao Kind of strange but oddly true, I began to write this blog late into Saturday night, but nodding off on the laptop I decided to save it for another day. Somehow I think the fates got it right by holding me off. There are few, I’d say an “nth” percentile of hearing abled humans who don’t have some song, just one song that they have grabbed so close to their heart because it touched some piece of their life. Just some speck, a relationship, a struggle, a triumph. The song just seemed to fill, in a musical way, exactly what their lives were encompassing at that specific moment of their lives, filling it, giving it extra color, a new dimension of richness. Heck, I can actually say a lot of my “music” is provided by birds and cows most of these days, not complaining, just pointing out that not all music is music by the human kind. In fact this blog post was prompted by the braying (yes, like a donkey braying) of a bull I have lovingly nicknamed Broadway Joe due to his proclivity to serenade me through out the day.… Read the rest23665686174_f614841388_o

My Heart Used to Light Your Way

“I love you no matter what you do, but do you have to do so much of it?” — Jean Illsley Clarke   Somewhere between the evening news and getting caught up with the DVR’d shows I’ve not been watching last night it hit me that I’ve taken a huge step backwards in the love and life categories. It’s probably why I’ve been so blue lately, I’ve been barely breathing. Today, on the first day of this weekend I am recommitting to live my love, live my passion, rekindle my curiosity and dedicating these days to living my dreams. Sure we can all say that, but at some point for it to be true we have to show intent, not just words. Are you with me? In this moment, live your values. With each person you meet, live your compassion, your respect, your authenticity. Be real, that’s a hard one isn’t it? We put up these persona’s because we fear the real us is sadly lacking. Come with, let’s put aside just thinking about or wishing for those things that are most meaningful for us.… Read the restMy Heart Used to Light Your Way
