  1. Yes. And since it is a season only…there is hope for future Maybe Maybes 🙂 I'm thankful for the stuffed wardrobe and the fat hiney which means I ate good lots of times 🙂 And for the onion that helps me relieve the pain of today's nevers.
    For some reason I'm thinking of this poem by Billy Collins…hope it makes you smile 🙂 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uVu4Me_n91Y

    1. Oh Phyllis how abslutely wonderful is he?? That was just the perfect gift for me this morning… thank you so much!

  2. Thoughts of mortality… oh yes. Me too. Unlike simple concrete things like laundry and returning books to the library and cleaning out my closet, I can't just scratch them off the list and make them go away. And then, in a moment of clarity, I have a good laugh at myself. When I was young, did I actually think I would be beautiful and live forever? I think I did. And the realization I won't comes to me in waves. As you wrote "You are a woman like any other."

  7. So lovely, and infinitely relatable (apparently that isn't a word, but it's staying!) I've been staring at my home, my blog, myself, for what feels like a long time and I need to not care about that and just carry on and hope that things start falling into place.
    There's hope yet, after all!

  9. Very thought provoking post… "…mostly you concern yourself … With the kind of Being and Nothingness that will leave no mark in time." I feel a parallel with you, Alison. {hug}
    And on a side note, I have used TruNature Cranberry softgels from my health food store. With a mighty little 300mg of cranberry extract in gel capsule form, I find that it beats it before it takes hold. I don't have any sensitivities to the "other ingredients" like gelatin or rice bran oil, though.
