Do you remember the movie Carrie?
Not that remake shit, but the original.  The “Plug it up!  Plug it up!” Carrie.
Well, I’m a huge horror fan and there are very few scary movies that get under my skin.
Carrie was one of them.
<spoiler ahead….seriously..have you really not seen Carrie yet?!>
At the end when her hand comes up through the rocks and dirt laid on her grave..
Well, think of me as Carrie — gone, but not really.
I’m rising again.
Because times are a-changin’…. Come writers and critics
Who prophesize with your pen
And keep your eyes wide
The chance won’t come again
And don’t speak too soon
For the wheel’s still in spin
And there’s no tellin’ who
That it’s namin’
For the loser now
Will be later to win
For the times they are a-changin’. Pass the word…..

Raise your hands if you know these two scoundrels personally.

I’m pretty sure I’ve written about this before, but it bares repeating…

Add the two scoundrels from above and you’ve got the makings of a war.
So, how does this woman put her hormones and the
elements aside to remain centered, grounded and a beacon of love and light?

Chasing Verity

(Featuring October’s 4 Seasons Makeup)* He walked out of my ex-boyfriend’s house.
What in the world was he doing there?
With slightly wavy blonde hair and a smile upon his lips, he held his head down.
I couldn’t see his face and we had never officially met,
but I knew I had to catch him.
His feet were fast.
Bounding down streets and turning corners at lightening speed,
I couldn’t keep up.
I missed a previous call he had placed to me and try as I might to return it,
the number kept coming back as incorrect.
Then it dawned on me — since he was in my ex-boyfriend’s house,
why not call there?
A little girl answered and with a shaky voice I asked for him by name,
“…is Verity there?” Verity.
I had no idea what that word meant before I had that dream several nights ago.
But, it’s all I have been thinking of since.
1. the state or quality of being true; accordance with fact or reality.
2. something that is true, as a principle, belief, idea or statement.… Read the restOctober Skies

Helping Hands

Have you ever been hungry?
Not the..
“Gawd, I’m soooo stressed!  I’m gonna eat that half gallon of ice cream in the freezer.”
or the…
“Am I really hungry an hour after eating all that Chinese food?  Must be all the carbs.”
nor the…
“No, doughnut!  I will not listen to you calling my name…well, maybe just this once.” None of those reasons are even remotely close to real hunger.
Ask those devastated by the earthquake and aftershocks in Nepal.
Millions have been displaced and know first-hand what it is to be truly hungry.
But, there is hope. Founded in 1961, The World Food Programme (WFP) is the food assistance branch of the United Nations and the world’s largest humanitarian organization addressing hunger and promoting food security.  With the magnitude of the earthquake in Nepal, WFP immediately put together a Nepal Earthquake response cell and has quickly moved to support the survivors.… Read the restHelping_Hands

Wedged The Right Way

There are times in life where you just feel you’re between a rock and a hard place.
Wedged between the inconceivable and the impossible.
Those are the times when we should just stop — stop trying to break free.
Although, it may be difficult, start observing the positive around you.
Be thankful for the air you breathe, your ears to hear with and sight (spiritual sight, as well) to see with.  Before long, the space between the rock and the hard will begin to loosen and you’ll be set free. For you Second Lifers, a new wedge has been created,
but this one is to be celebrated.
Guu Nishi, owner and designer of HOC Industries is back and with a vengeance offering us HOC junkies Wedgie Boots. (Pictured above)
These boots, like many of Guu’s designs, come with what I call a “Mega HUD.”
Being able to choose between 12 colors for the main part of the boot,
toe, edge and laces, the combinations are endless.
Completing my outfit with HOC’s Wrinkled Pleated Skirt and Tokyo77 Flimsy Tank, my friends and I are ready for any situation — impossible or not.… Read the restWedge_and_Friends

Letting Loose With Fashion For Change

Well, this is it!
My last entry regarding Fashion For Change on
the last day of a worthwhile event.
It began with The Power of Love with Fashion For Change to
The Wizard of Awe Loves Fashion For Change featuring Baboom.
I then featured Lyrical Bizarre Templates by
Being Kewpie With Fashion For Change
and later announcing There’s a Fairy Godmother at Fashion For Change
with Romance Couture waving her magic wand.
Now, on this last chance to bring attention to FFC 2015
and Womankind Worldwide, the charity this event supports,
I’ve chosen these last two designers: WICCA’S WARDROBE
COCO! There are many things I love about Wicca Merlin.
One of them is the fact that she understands my
occasional need for the outrageous.
Giving me carte blanche to style her designs as I see fit,
this sense of freedom has brought about some
of the best images I have ever created.
With that said, allow me to introduce Wicca Wardrobe’s contribution to FFC which is the Aelinia Jacket in Marsala.… Read the restMaking_Strides

There’s a Fairy Godmother at Fashion For Change

You know the story…
An underprivileged chick whose father has bad taste in women,
slaves away for her hateful stepmother and fugly stepsisters.
But, whom shall appear to rescue our fair damsel from distress?
Well, guess what?
Cindy doesn’t hold the monopoly on fairy godmothers.
Fashion For Change has their very own and she is willing to
bestow upon us all our couture desires.
I wanted to be a lady — a pretty woman even Julia Roberts couldn’t touch. POOF! Complete transformation! Last week my chosen Fashion For Change designers were
Boom and Lyrical Bizarre Templates. Today, the spotlight is on
ROMANCE COUTURE! Romance Couture aka Fashion For Change’s Fairy Godmother,
delivers to us this oh so lady-like ensemble called Garalang.
Coming in many colors, I chose the vibrant blue.
The rest of the work was pretty much done for me since Garalang comes in tow with a matching purse and hat.… Read the restPretty_Woman

Being A Kewpie With Fashion For Change

The Kewpie Doll.
How adorable they are.
Normally seen wearing nothing but a smile,  they are the epitome of innocence.
Thanks to Fashion For Change, all of that is about to change.
Not their innocence, but their nakedness. In my last entry, I featured the Fashion For Change designer Baboom in
The Wizard of Awe Loves Fashion For Change.
Who shall the talented designer be for today? LYRICAL BIZARRE TEMPLATES! Ladies and Gentlemen,
I am self-proclaiming to be the official Fashion For Change Kewpie Doll.
Isn’t this ensemble, fab?
It’s called Lolita and words cannot express how much I adore it.
The bright colors of the sexy top and cleverly designed skirt are a
magnet for the eyes.
I, being a mix and matcher, will catch myself dreaming about the different ways I can incorporate each piece with other clothing items.
You will, too.
‘Tis Haute Couture at it’s finest.
However, there are only six Fashion For Change days left to snag this delight,
so don’t dawdle.… Read the restKewpie_Doll

The Wizard of Awe Loves Fashion For Change

Greetings, Lovers of the Universe!
How is life treating you?
My life is grand.
I’m full off of pizza, cinnamon sticks and orange soda.
I’m not being threatened with violence, inequality and discrimination.
I’m blessed.
However, there are those who are not as fortunate.
Have no idea what I’m referring to?
That can only mean one thing.  You missed my last entry.
Shame on you!
But, not to worry.  Here is the chance to redeem yourself.
Take a moment to read The Power of Love with Fashion For Change.
I’ll wait. Finished?
Good.  Now we are on the same page and I can proceed with my first featured designer: BABOOM This ethnic ensemble is called Mandala and consists of a mesh dress, two upper arm bracelets, two lower arm bracelets, a hat and a bow.
One of the features I love about Mandala is that the hat and bow are completely modifiable.  This means if you have a big head or a sloped forehead as I do, re-sizing the hat is easy peasy.  … Read the restWizard_of_Awe

Be Still

Do you remember that old story in the Bible…
Uh..of course it’s old.  It’s from the Bible.
And don’t get your knickers in a bunch because I mentioned the B word, either.
The Bible, like so many other best sellers, is simply a book.
Read it, use what applies to you and discard the rest.  For me, it is a reference that ties together and gives wisdom to several of my life’s events.  It is not, however, the all inclusive manual to how my spiritual life should be led.
With that said, let me back up to the beginning… Remember that story where Jesus was on a ship with his disciples and while he was asleep, a storm began to brew?  It was pretty chaotic.  From our standards, it might have been the beginning of a tsunami.
However, Jesus slept.
The disciples were hecka disturbed.
“We are hella in trouble!  The skies are black, the water is rising and I got my new goat skin sandals wet!  How can he sleep at a time like this?Read the restBe_Still

Peace Within

The world has gone amok!
Well, judging from the headlines, anyway. “2000 geese fall dead ‘out of the sky’ in Idaho.”
“Mesa Shooting: At least six people shot, 1 killed.”
“Tunisia Gunmen Target Tourism, Killing 19 At An Art Museum.”
And would you believe this was all reported today?
It’s enough to cause panic, fear and uncertainty.
Are we safe?
Will I be next?
I’m scared!
Dear Friend…
It’s okay.
Don’t allow outwardly circumstances disturb your peace from within.
Regardless to what is happening in the world, we have the ability to orchestrate our own happiness — a happiness that shines brighter than any dark cloud could ever dim. Keep the Faith.
Keep the Hope.
Keep the Love.
Keep Your Peace ♥

Shine Bright, Shine Right

(epic music begins) “You think you have won! What is light without dark? What are you without me? I am a part of you all. You can never defeat me. We are brothers eternal!” “Actually, that’s not true.  Hate to break it to you since you are the Lord of Darkness and all, but we are all beacons of light.  Sure, some of our lights are much dimmer than others, but the potential to shine bright is there and is waiting for it’s catalyst.
Oh and as far as you being indestructible….
…i love u.”
(epic music scratches to a halt)
GAME OVER That’s my take on how the movie Legend should have ended.
‘Course, it would have been a total flop at the box office and probably ruined Tom Cruise’s budding career. (There is a God!)
But, the message still stands true.
We are all beacons of light and have the potential to shine bright to lighten and give strength to someone else’s day.
And guess what?
When you shine right (no forced words or fake smiles) which is from the depths of your soul, you glow naturally.… Read the restBeacon

Seeking the Impossible

“It’s funny how what I speak lately has been manifested.”
“Oh really?  Well, what if I said that I want you fly?”
“First, you would have to believe in the impossible as I do.  Second, the Universe did not create our bodies to fly.  We have no wings.  But, if you believed and told me to fly, this is what would happen.”
“The Universe would send me free airline tickets.” This is the conversation I had with my son on an elevator.
After my last comment, all he could do was chuckle.
Beyond our normal scope of belief, there is an alternate reality.
One that is just waiting for us to believe.
To embrace all possibilities and haul ass until we get there.
That means hella “I Love You” to yourself, reading inspirational info and watching videos such as The Love Revolution. Seek the impossible.
The Universe will smile upon you.

Manifest The Positive

One very early morning, I was awaken from a deep sleep by these two words:
Limited Odds. When things like this happen, I always check to see if I’ve been influenced by outside forces like the TV playing in the background or the radio humming a song.
But, no.  The room was silent. Limited Odds.
It struck me so that I wrote it down on a piece of paper hanging on my wall.  I wanted to be able to see it, understand it, incorporate it into my thinking and make it a practice in my daily life.
You see, when you have faith and focus on manifesting the positive, the odds that things of an adverse nature will dwindle beyond importance.  They will limit themselves becoming microscopic in comparison to everything else.
It is not an easy thing to do and therefore must be practiced everyday.
Try it and bring forth the sunshine in your life. ♥

Seriously Sirius

What comes to mind when you hear the word Sirius?” He asked this of me several months back.
Other than the broadcasting company, I’d never heard the name before, yet it sent shivers all over my body. What came to mind?
Well, I wasn’t about to tell him — it was stupid and I felt foolish.
But, somehow the cat was let out of the bag. “I see the color of pearls and..and..”
I quickly took paper and pen in hand and drew what I couldn’t explain.
The outcome was several round figures — balls, if you will.
Without hesitation and speaking a word, he showed me THIS. How could I have known?
Have I seen or read about Sirius somewhere and simply forgot?
Do I have an intimate connection with the star system?
One from long ago.

Draw your own conclusion…

Chalk It Up To Chakras

Being out of alignment sucks!
Take if from me, a woman who’s daily visuals are constantly whopsided thanks to the astigmatisms I have in both eyes.  Turning my head to the side like an inquisitive pooch  isn’t out of the ordinary since nothing looks straight.
I remember when it became very apparent to me something was wrong when the big black and white clock hanging on the wall in high school music class never ever hung straight.  One day, I took it upon myself in front of the entire class to reach up and give the old timepiece assistance by rotating it a tad to the right….
It fell off the wall, hitting me smack dab on the head.
The class laughed, of course, and wondered why I tried to move it.
“Well, it was crooked!  Couldn’t you tell?  I mean, you did see it that way, right….right?”
Imagine the troubles I would have if my entire being was unaligned. It appears that is exactly where I am right now — out of alignment.  … Read the restThe_Red_Root


I must admit.
I’ve been away for quite sometime.
There are several major reasons why and all of them point to I, Zoomy, being a caterpillar in a cocoon.
I have now transformed into a much more beautiful being and want to share my insight with everyone.  Let’s begin here, shall we?
Tis all about love, Precious.
Love yourself, first of all.
If it’s difficult, don’t worry.  For practice makes perfect.
Tell yourself, “I love you.”  Doesn’t matter if you believe it or not.  That will all change.  Believe me.
I wasn’t fond of myself for decades and no matter what I accomplished (multiple awards and the love from theatre fans), I thought I was a piece of crap.
Now, I am 51 years old and I can finally say to myself “I love you.”
I raised four children on my own (two of which are disabled and living with me) without the help of a partner, I know how to handle business and can stand up to those  with multiple degrees.… Read the restAFallFromGrace
