“When I say I’m going to forget you I know it’s impossible to forget someone I once knew. What I want is to erase you from my thoughts and purge you from my memories. I’m saying it’s what I wish for, not what is or could ever be.” ~ Donna Lynn Hope
There is such a fine line betwixt emotional ties, love/hate, sanity/insanity, confidence/fear, satisfaction/desire, elation/grief and yet we as humans we assume we can play the circus acrobat straddling safely between the two emotional precipices, in our folly thinking the wind, that crazy wind, can’t bend us to its whims, one moment sturdy afoot, the next listing to or fro. Life, a scary prospect on all days, the best we can ever hope for is the courage to truly be engaged in our own passage. Only when we step back and view these challenging times, where aggression, speed, resistance and doubt are prevalent, to look before we see, to listen before we hear, to touch before we feel, and thus allowing the possibility of discovering the tremendous richness of the world, of others and, most importantly, of ourselves. Being brave is about finding the courage to just be, and discover the hidden treasure of humanity.
Where am I going with this? No where really, I was just brooding this afternoon. I went by *SoliDea FoliEs* on my lunch hour because I was looking for something haute to wear with this runway couture hair from Tabata Jewell of Vanity Hair and it got me to thinking about my friend Mila Tatham. She is straddling real life right now and though I am so happy for her successful new real life venture, the childish part of me misses her terribly. Which got me to thinking about other relationships on hiatus. But that’s neither here nor there in the grand scheme of life, I wanted to pass on to you, while I was there, I saw a ton of stuff 50% off, so if you’ve ever wanted to own some virtual haute couture, git on over there. Here, I’ll even provide the taxi for you! I hear sometimes I’m kinda nice like that.
