I took the above photo laying on the grass and bending over backwards.  

                 Woo Hoo!  I am getting the hang of this being OLD stuff.  I can do what I want.  I got a very empowering feeling today that it really doesnt matter what anyone else thinks of me.  My kids know all to well who I am and I am the only one who can really influence ME.   So I just relaxed...the flaws go away first and then the concepts and then the floating happens.  

                 I think this is how Hillary must be feeling.  She seems to be enjoying the ride.  Her whole life has brought her to this moment and she is on cruise control.  She has the energy, experience and will to make this work.  She really doesn't need to care what people think of her.  She knows she is pretty darn cool.

                 This getting older stuff has a golden side and a dark side.  Yep, the bodies are giving out but if you relax and seek pleasure it is amazing how much pain you can avoid.  No one cares but you.  Make yourself happy.   I do.  I went swimming today and drove back with the windows down and my long white hair flying.  Whoppee...Im OLD.  It is kinda fun.

     Ive been riding around with Tracy Chapman singing on the cd in my car.  Good company.

"...it really doesn't matter what anyone else thinks of me... children and geezers enjoy that luxury.  Everyone else from 10 to 65 suffers the tyranny of what they think that others might think of them.  R&L ;-)

So true. To work today I wore a red flowered skirt with a black flowered top with purple flowered tights and Gary Baseman illustrated Doc Martins with red devils on them. I was a red/black/purple pattern buffet. People either complimented or gave me the she must be crazy side-eye. Both felt good. Here's to being of a certain age!

Does anyone remember that picture of Helen Mirren riding the NYC subway wearing her beautiful lavender suede gloves? If anyone knows where I can find a pair of those, PLEASE let me know. I am coveting them. Older women look good in shades of violet.

Nerd, today's outfit was a little boho maybe, but also a little oh who cares if flowers clash with more flowers and flowers and some devils. The official art uniform is black jeans and whatever, usually more black on top. I get so bored with that.

Wait,

you mean I'm supposed to wait until 65 before I stop caring what other people think? 

Outside of business, You have no idea how early I jumped that gun. By half a century easy.
