The Simplicity of Wisdom

A few years ago Robert Fulghum wrote a book titled “All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten”. I have come to really appreciate the lessons we were taught in kindergarten.
A few years ago someone asked about a situation I was going through. My response was simply “I am the wrong bird”. I was referring to the story about the ugly duckling. You know…the story about the duck that was teased every day about being ugly and so different from the other ducks. One day he ran away and saw a flock of beautiful swans and wanted to swim with them, but remembered how much he had always been teased about how he looked. Then he saw a reflection of himself in the water and realized that he looked just like the swans.
My point is…you have to know ….who…. you …are! We must then stay true to ourselves and keep searching until we find our flock. You won’t be at peace until you do.

83 year-old supermodel

83 year old supermodel—an oxymoron? I don’t think so!
We have often heard that beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder. Then behold 83 year old supermodel, Carmen Dell’Orefice who grayced the cover of the spring 2015 edition of NEW YOU-The Voice of Health and Beauty magazine. Beautiful is really not enough to describe her on this cover; I must add phenomenal and awesome! She is quoted as saying “I have had more magazine covers in the last 25 years than I have had in my whole elongated career, today I am in a territory that business considers unmarketable: age and white hair. Slowly, however, I started to own that territory little by little because I stood up for age.”

Now that is a concept that needs to be explored; models with gray hair!

If a man turns gray, he’s distinguished.

If a woman starts to gray, she’s old;

Something had to go wrong in her life,

And the stress has taken its toll.


If she’s young with some gray, Oh My Goodness!!

The poor thing must’ve had a tough go.

Buy a wig or a hat or some dye child,

Cover it up so the people won’t know.


But look out.  There’s a new movement,

That is redefining gray.

Teaching women to embrace it,

No matter what others might say.


Would you believe me if I were to tell you

That gray hair can draw a crowd?

Women are no longer feeling ashamed,

They accept it and they are proud;


Especially when someone stops to tell them

That it compliments their face.

So check in and give your opinion,
