Still a dreamer…Old Memories and New Hopes

Forever loved. When I’m able to think of him with love, not pain and tears, I will write him a goodbye letter. His loving energy will be with me forever . Have fun Lucky playing Over The 🌈Bridge

Gloria Vanderbilt

I just watched the beautiful tribute Nothing Left Unsaid: Gloria Vanderbilt and Anderson Cooper.

Poignant Moving Sad

I would like to share a story

about the lovely and elegant Gloria Vanderbilt.

I’m a perfume lover. Always seeking the perfect scent.

Over 50 years ago I  was at the theater with my husband. A beautiful woman swept by, and she left a trail of a delicious scent. Her back was to me and I walked up and touched her on her shoulder.

”May I ask your scent”, I said.

“Oh of course she said sweetly. It’s Tuberose by Mary Chess. And you get a huge bottle for $7.50” as she held her hands  facing each other wide apart, showing the size of the bottle. “So inexpensive”, she smiled.

…….and that was my 25 second meeting with beautiful Gloria Vanderbilt who died recently.

Mary Chess Tuberose, I wore for many years until it was discontinued.

Gloria Vanderbilt will live on forever in Anderson Coopers heart and soul💐✨

Always important to have someone you can relate with✨

The tress are welcoming me to Virginia. A little sunset, the bonus. As seen from the train. Two months of fun family love. No drama🥰

I need to practice “less is more.” Otherwise, I will  get all emotional and end up embarrassing those I love the most. So keeping it simple. My youngest grandchild , my only granddaughter, will be finished with college  tomorrow . Leaving Thursday to experience her achievements. Well deserved honors, three graduations. My two grandsons graduated college last year.  Spent their college years in a very positive way. Always thinking of those less fortunate.

What I know…..My three grandchildren, in their own way, I have no doubts, will make this world a better place, a kinder place, and a place that deserves them.

Proud??? Is there a stronger word? Above and beyond proud and forever grateful they are in my life.

Thinking about going to the gym, but it’s raining out. Oh wait, the gym is in my building. I’ll have to find another excuse. I will🤗

Noises…….Not Necessary

I read that “if you’re over 60 and wake up with nothing hurting,  you’re dead.” (unknown.)

Seems there’s some truth here.

I’ve been practicing Hatha Yoga for over 40 years, and consider myself flexible. Physically and emotionally. But, I’ve noticed getting in and out of Lyft (car sharing service) in the city, there seems to be too much noise coming from me in the way of grunts. No matter how lady like, still a grunt.

I decided while I was in Virginia to try to curb the noises. Not using a car service here, but still in and out of my sister in laws car, (and may I add, not a huge van.)…….I’m still grunting. Also in and out of chairs.

I made a conscious effort to stop. I surely don’t need the additional focus on age related sounds. That’s another post all together and may I add that “denial is a wonderful thing.” said by Kitty Carlisle many years ago, and timeless.

So far so good. I am quite disciplined and this is another way of practicing.

The new me….sans the grunts. Silence is really golden.

I would like to sincerely thank all new followers. I appreciate your support.
