Today, a few helpful & darling things to share.
Let's start with DARLING, shall we?? :) :) :)
-THIS PHOTO was sent to us by reader, Miggy, the day I posted about the miniature Bertoia Chairs. My heart! I can't get this darling girl out of my mind. I love Lamp! And I love her mom's blog! She's doing something beautiful there for families with kids who have special needs.
-THE POSTER (above) was sent in by a reader, Kristen. Thanks! We love it! It sums it all up quite nicely, don't you think?
-Reader, Stephanie, highly recommends the book by Brene Brown called "I THOUGHT IT WAS JUST ME, BUT IT ISN'T." It's about shame and how it's the root of so many problems, including the reason most of us don't want to be vulnerable. I can't wait to read this.
-Love these ideas from reader, LM, about HOW TO FEEL SEXY:
a) never read another beauty magazine; you pay for them to make you feel ugly so that you will buy the product advertised in their pernicious pages which is probably only of any clinical effectiveness at concentrations that are not even reached in that expensive little designer bottle.
b) dance, to what you like with who you like, where ever you like.
c) eat sensual fruit (mango, papaya, juicy red berries). I especially like to do this in the cubicle at work. Such luxury in the midst of institutional grey walls.
d) learn how to have an orgasm.
e) take an interest in the wider world, develop a talent and watch your self-confidence blossom. Sexy is a mind thing.
f) visit an art gallery, music performance, or place of natural beauty. Stare at a starry sky. Expand your idea of beauty beyond what mainstream media feeds us.
g) enjoy water in a long hot shower, the swimming pool, the lake, ocean or a babbling brook. There is a reason it has been a metaphor for life and sensuality for thousands of years.
h) light a fire! (maybe using those beauty magazines.) It brings people together.
