Nice to see you!

Three major events occurred for me last year (2010), all in the space of about 2 weeks. I turned 50. The following day I got married. Two weeks later, my oldest daughter became pregnant with her first child and my first grandchild.

Most middle-aged people will tell you that in their minds, they still feel 20 something. It's the same for me.

Wasn't it only yesterday that I was planning a night out with guys from the surf club? That gorgeous new perm. Flaired, cuffed denims and the red t-shirt with the off-the-shoulder frill. Corked platform wedgies. **sigh**

Suddenly I'm looking in the mirror and wondering how 30 years can flash by so damned quickly!

So here I am in cyberspace, sharing my genuine shock and horror with anyone who'll listen and maybe I'll even meet some other over 50s who find themselves in the same predicament!

Welcome to my dilemna!!

Day 170 in a Year of my Life

"When nobody else celebrates you, learn to celebrate yourself.  When nobody else compliments you, then compliment yourself.  It's not up to other people to keep you encouraged.  It's up to you.  Encouragement should come from the inside."

I have no idea who said that.

It's excellent advice.

I wish I could follow it!

I'm going to try.

So now I experiment.  I mean REALLY experiment.  I expect that some photos will look way 'over the top'.  I am going to post them here anyway!

Hopefully, through experimentation, my photos will gradually morph into spectacles of artistic creativity that are so awesome that at first glance you will all gasp at my awesomeness!!  (Please practise that in your spare time)

In the meantime, I am grateful for Chicklet phone calls.  Giggles and squeals and chats.  I heart her.

Nite all.
