it’s a new dawn!

morning coffee

feeling good coppery vibes


sometimes i am
sometimes i’m not

and it’s all good

because at 55 you no longer need to make the girls’ club

let’s try that again…

because there comes a time when we must give up the struggle to meet the approval of others

“It’s a new dawn
It’s a new day
It’s a new life
For me
And I’m feeling good”

Embrace the process and don’t be so hard on yourself, BEaUtiful child. ♥️

above all



BEaUtiful child
wear it well

Proverbs 4:23

real state of mind

all that is genuine golden and kind


“It doesn’t happen all at once,” said the Skin Horse. “You become. It takes a long time. That’s why it doesn’t happen often to people who break easily, or have sharp edges, or who have to be carefully kept. Generally, by the time you are Real, most of your hair has been loved off, and your eyes drop out and you get all loose in the joints and very shabby. But these things don’t matter at all, because once you are Real you can’t be ugly, except to people who don’t understand.”*

BEaUtiful child
you are Real

the light is changing

it’s not the hint of crisp in the air
the turning of colors or crinkling of leaves

it’s the unrivaled splendor of autumn that first makes its presence known
ever so gently, almost mysteriously
and hearts wed to it know

just ahead
new season

i’m growing more comfortable in my own skin

hello, BEaUtiful!
the light is changing
do you see it?
