Weighty Issues

Perhaps you should have put down your baggage before it herniated your heart ~ KeiB

I don’t believe in baggage

One either learns from a bad experience or they don’t

It’s a choice

Learn to travel light

I didn’t plan to post again until after Christmas but this is too cool not to share. Ottawa is listed among the coldest Capital cities on earth during winter. Today however, THIS is happening:

I loved winter when I was a kid but it loses its appeal when your skating, skiing and tobogganing days are over. Not to mention who wants to live through a winter where the air hurts your face?

If Santa has brought me global warming this year – I’m not complaining – 18ºC!! 🙂

Contused And Conflicted

I’m black and blue all over
Feels like four rounds with Ali
But the bruises are invisible
Because my opponent is me

I’m bleeding blood and roses
In spilled ink and tattoos
But I can’t forego this dark Muse
Because my assailant is you

What’s Important…

The article and more photos can be found here.

My humble opinion? Let it never be said that I squandered my Present by worrying about my outward appearance in the Future.
(and I hope I look as effing fabulous as this model some day)

I gotta say: it’s a sad commentary on humanity when tattoos, an “older” woman with hair longer than her ears, or dressing unconventionally; generates more discussion, outrage, or unsolicited opinion than say, unsafe drinking water, the corruption of religious and political leaders or child abuse…

Just a quick note: I’ve been finding it hard to catch up on my reading and responding on WordPress. Some of you know that I have a two other active blogs, a full and a part time job and a family. The volume of wonderful posts is sometimes overwhelming, especially when my M.E. kicks up and I hope you’ll forgive me if I miss something. Always know that your visits are what keeps me going  and are very much appreciated. ~ kei
