New sounds…

I want to return to the aging thing and all those telomere thingies that I've not mentioned before, but I’m wandering tonight into a new classical music composer whose melodies are stirring my soul. Have a listen and see if you are not as moved as I have been. http://www.vevo.com/watch/olafur-arnalds/oldurot/GBUV71601052 My wish is simply that …

Moving mountains…

It is tomorrow as in the day after yesterday and I’ve given thought to the topic of last night’s post which focussed on my – uh – issues regarding an inability to appreciate my aging body. Redo 365 was meant to redress views on getting older and while I’ve made some leaps, it seems I …

To curl or not to curl…

Being compared to Shirley Temple was nice. The fact that I neither looked like her nor tap danced up and down the stairs did not dissuade the comparison from the straight hair majority who appeared to think we curly heads were all related.

We peel our grapes and stroll wistfully in idyllic woodlands with nymphs and butterflies. There’s plenty of plenty and nothing rough or intrusive. Hmm. Folks, …

Facing it head on…

Rough day in my head tumbling in a sea of apprehension. What’s coming up and causing this is the harsh reality of my current situation. When considering my present moment with burning questions of ‘what if?’ and ‘where do I go from here?’ fear rises like a tsunami. Before you know it, whoosh, I’m in …

Can you find your word?

Funnily enough I’ve started three different blogs over two days and not finished one. Wow. This is numero quarto and a first at the same time. It’s a first because I’ve never left a paragraph sit unfinished. Can’t say I know what’s up. It’s like I’ve lost my hands because my head doesn’t stop. I’m …
