My new northern lights leggings and my not as new very wrinkled forget me not shirt. The stance is sort of funny, but the leggings are pretty darn sweet. I don't know how long they will last or if they survived the first washing. I do know I'll have to figure out what to do with them when they do pass on! I love them very much. A rare inexpensive impulse buy which made me very happy!
I am positive I've written about S.A. in here before. it is something I'm often fascinated with. Sex Appeal. In the 70's this was a pretty important characteristic a women might have. Today, I am not sure what it is called. It isn't not something soley for the female sex. It totally exists for both of them. However, this is why Santa gives the best presents to the naughty girls and boys!
S.A. is harboring something which attracts. The person does not need long legs or shapely mouth watering bulges. The person could look like a dump truck, be dressed in a paisley mumu, and still have Sex Appeal. It is the look in the eye, the care in the light touch, and the way the person carries themselves as they walk.
I am sure there is a lot more which could be said on ths topic. I mentioned how it fascinates me. I often think I might have it. I adore flirting and most everyone seems to enjoy my flirtations. It isn't because I am thin and the stereotypical loved one. Maybe, just maybe, it is Sex Appeal!
I came to some interesting correlations between the northern lights and my traditional real time love life while watching and watching for the northern lights last night.
The setting I was in, under the stark black branches and stars, was a ton better than my bedroom and the sounds I could hear were magical, but much of the rest seemed similar!
It was not exactly what I hoped for, short and less exciting than other times, but none the less, an appreciated execution in an almost complete darkness. I’d love more, and I waited for quite a while before making the decision to sleep. I was thankful I had made the choice to enjoy what was there, so often something happens to obscure the chance. You gotta take those opportunities when they occur, no matter what the outcome!
I enjoy watching a day end. Sitting in the cold, watching the sun sink into the mountains. Not walking or doing anything, just admiring the sky. I love moments like this. It isn't something everyone likes. I often wonder if anyone else does. Lots of people love sunsets. They like to watch them, but chill breezy beaches are not favorite viewing spots! Not unless you also combine that sunset with walking or standing around or playing with kids or dogs!
I recall watching sunsets in HS. But, the two of us didn't always pay attention to the sky! We were young.
There are so many things you can do with your hands. As tiny tots we play Patty Cake, later we graduate to counting on our fingers, then working and driving cars. So many amazing ways to use our hands. We learn to touch, to feel life, and to relish what is at our fingertips.
Remember in the movie ET where Elliot and ET share the monumental fingertip touch? I always enjoyed that iconic moment. Lights from the touch of a one friend's finger to another. Of all the things one can do with one's hands, reaching out is by far the very best.
I love seeing with my hands. I enjoy experiencing the world with the sense of touch using my fingers and palms to feel all that is around me. I am a toucher and enjoy what I discover. Many songs use touch as a theme. I like that!
Rod Stewart's song, 'Do you think I'm sexy?" has a great line in it.
"If you really need me just reach out and touch me, come on honey tell me so....."
Found somewhere on FB. I like this advice. I know it isn't politically correct to focus on beauty. I know we are supposed to know we are all original masterpieces of myriad brush strokes. Yet, I crave being told positive things about me. I am learning I'm not quite a Tonka Dump truck (those are lovely toys and incredibly cute and useful), it has taken quite a while to get to where I am today with a newer mindset. I have great admiration for the lights in my world who have helped me see myself better. I still believe I have a long way to go to make less of me, I know others think the same, yet....it is such a relief to know I am fairly ok just the way I am. Without make up, a stylish hair cut, or fun clothes.
Pretty, beautiful, lovely, adorable, desirable..these are just words. And I appreciate hearing them.
