The girl who was once from NYC, transplanted to the sticky trap of the CT countryside. Teacher, singer, writer, hippie chick. Dancer along the path through the dark.

Also a Mommy. That's the most important thing that's happened along the way, but not what this blog will be about.

It’s not that it’s easy but I am so afraid of missing out on it that if there is an opportunity I take it no matter what. I read the alchemist in high school and I have it.
I remember when I was younger, and single—not to sound like a Mom, though I am— <chagrin> I threw myself into whatever happened to have the slightest chance of becoming something full of all the passion I could imagine… No matter what… I’ve hit some pretty huge sorrows for that both in karma and in the later-on effect on my marriage…In my 40s I am a different person. Something has to pretty astounding to move me. And I guess I’d like to think that having had the after-burn of karma from earlier years, I would never take love from someone else, knowing that’s what I was doing. Underhanded never pays off. Nothing worth having is taken. It’s given. Or as one of my favorite quotes—that I try to keep in mind— goes : “Never chase love, affection, or attention. If it isn’t given freely by another person, it isn’t worth having.”
I surrender without a second thought. every. time.
Me too. It’s a set of values about life, I think. I guess. That being said, I can’t say I go blindly, though. It’s not like I hip-check people out of the way to get there. I’m also not someone who finds passion easily, or someone for whom passion makes a beeline.
I do love reading Paolo Coelho. What he says often makes so much sense, in a spiritual way, even if I’m an atheist. Have you read The Alchemist? Great book. I’ve not read Eleven Minutes, from which this quote was taken. I have read the descrip in Wikipedia though and have put it on my “must read” list. Two kinds of people in the world. Some people are one. I am the other.
For having giant boobs, I show usually no cleavage at all. It’s weird. Most people don’t understand it.
I do. My boobs aren’t as big now as they were when I was younger. (Kids and then after kids they shrank I guess. Not complaining.) But I totally get it. I do have some shirts and dresses that are cut with a V or a scoop. But thrusting out my cleavage, or accentuating it has never been my thing. Now wearing leggings and short skirts and boots, that’s a whole ‘nother story! :)
