~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ HAIR opened on Broadway in 1968. In the fall of 1969 (I was 15) I was lucky enough to get to see it live on stage in Chicago. Now I was not old enough to get in on my own, but went with some friends who were already 18. I have to say, for a little girl from a small town in the south, it was quite an experience to go to a stage show and see actors running around naked!
HAIR was great and such a product of it's time. It told the story of a group of politically active, long haired hippies, true members of the Age of Aquarius, fighting against being drafted and sent to Vietnam. A number of the songs became hits. Hair, Aquarius, Good Morning Starshine, Easy To Be Hard, and Sunshine all came from HAIR.
I've always had a thing for hair. My hair was very long until my niece cut, curled and made it red for me last month.
See Becky. See Becky's hair come out. The last day or so I've been noticing it was shedding a bit, so this afternoon I sat for a little over an hour, gently pulling and removing whatever would come out and putting it in a Ziploc bag. There is still hair on my head, but it is quite thin and patchy. I think I'm going to see if Kiki can come up this week and work on it for me. So I'll leave you with this little story, which I quite like. It came to me in e-mail.
One day a little old lady woke up and saw she had three hairs on her head. She said, "Oh good. I think I'll braid my hair today." And she went out and had a wonderful day.
The next morning she woke up and saw she had two hairs on her head. She said, "Oh good! I think I'll wear my hair in pigtails." And she went out and had a wonderful day.
The next morning she woke up and saw she had one hair on her head. She said, "Oh good! I think I'll wear my hair in a ponytail." And she went out and had a wonderful day.
The next morning she woke up and saw she had no hair on her head. She said, "Oh good! I don't have to worry about fixing my hair today." And she went out and had a wonderful day.
My friends, I hope no matter what the status of your hair is, you have gone out and are having a wonderful day!
Practice random kindness and senseless acts of beauty.
I don't like to say that my kitchen is a religious place, but I would say that if I were a voodoo priestess, I would conduct my rituals there. -- Pearl Bailey Ponder well on this point: the pleasant hours of our life are all connected by a more or less tangible link, with some memory of the table. -- Charles Pierre Monselet, French author (1825-1888).
The ordinary arts we practice every day at home are of more importance to the soul than their simplicity might suggest. --Sir Thomas More You can have anything you want in life if you dress for it. --Edith Head A dinner chosen according to one's needs, tastes, and moods, well prepared and well served, is a joy to all senses and an impelling incentive to sound sleep, good health, and long life. Therefore, at least once a day, preferably in the quiet cool of the evening, one should throw all care to the winds, relax completely, and dine leisurely and well. --Count Arnaud Cazenave
Welcome to my blog. I love to cook. I love to garden. I collect art deco. And my camera is like Karl Malden's American Express card. I don't leave home without it. Most of my photographs are of food, dishes, our farm & our travels.
In June of 2005 I was diagnosed with myelodysplastic syndrome, a disease where the DNA of the bone marrow gets messed up & stops producing blood cells. 18 July 2009 I had a bone marrow transplant. Currently I am still under treatment. I have had some dysplasia show up again in one of my cell lines and have begun a new round of chemotherapy. Mainly I try to focus on the positive.
Blogging lets me keep my family up to date & lets me share recipes, photographs & my love of cooking and dishes. I hope you enjoy reading as much as I enjoy posting.
