Metamorphosis Me-Oh-My

Metamorphosis: complete change in form, character, or substance...hummm...sounds like what I am going through. ChaNGe is good, so they say, whoever they are...

In May, I will be hitting the 50 mark, there, I said it loud and proud and even in a bold typeface. I guess I feel like I'm in my 20s and look younger, thanks to good Mom and Dad genes, but those aches and pains are starting, ugh. Oh yeah, and the gray hair...hey, that's what hair color is for! No problemo...but the gray ones in my eyebrows are really starting to get on my last nerve, so I got this great pencil for that too. Now, if they only made a pencil or crayon for the laugh lines that I could color away, I would be one happy chick. And my older (by 4 yrs.) brother doesn't have one gray hair...what's up with that??? Sometimes the Gods like to play dirty jokes...

Well, I finally went to the local YMCA and started weight training again, after uhmmm ,hmm, oh who's counting...years. And I am starting the vitamin thing, again...is it okay to take them with my daily glass of red wine? Oh, you really don't think I would do that, come on, I think a cosmopolitan cocktail would be best!

Anyway, this is going to be a year of great things, for one, 50 and fabulous! And my art is ever evolving and I am excited about the work, I just need to find ways to make some cash. I always worked for an Ad Agency or Studio, etc., and now I am on my own, but know that I can make it happen. I get such inspiration from seeing what others are creating and doing with success.

I think I need to go and stretch out my newly worked out muscles...I sure hope that they do have muscle memory...but, of course like me, they probably don't remember as well as they used to!!!!


  1. Aaah yes, 50. I remember that ... life is passing me by and I seem to be letting it too which is a bit stupid really.
    Shall go now and drink some Ovaltine with an arrowroot biscuit as a 'treat' - that's what the over-50s do I should think.
    Thanks for putting yourself forward as one of my 'followers'. Much appreciated.

  2. Thank you for visiting and your warm comments!
