What pages were torn out of the journal? No one will ever know, tossed to the floor, not crumbled, no chance of going insane as Hemingway suggested. Do you think he began to crumble his pages before his depression and eventual suicide as implied in the movie we watched last night "Hemingway & Gellhorn." Being kind to ourselves, my husband and I are reading Hemingway out loud to each other. We skipped last night and watched a movie instead. Not sure it was a good idea. And, I'm not sure aboutNicole Kidman's bright red lipstick as she portrayed Gellhorn during her war correspondent days. Was it a fashion statement? Was it to imply that she was ripe in contrast to her later years when she wore no lipstick on at all? Or that she was tough, could handle anything? As an ageless goddess I am in my later years. I like to wear red lipstick. For me it's about color and balance and brightness. Today I will iron red fabric. A bright rusty red. Silk and linen. Ripe and tough.
Of course, green is what is needed.
It is the color of balance and self-reliance.
The essence of your body is
the ever flowing river
the ever winding road
movement and rhythm
an idea, constantly evolving
a cloud full of energy, swirling
Let your soul skin cloak be the art you wear, your guide.
As you bloom
Access your deepest resource
Sit in your garden regularly
Let your blooming be an inspiration
And continuous revelation
Refashion your purpose in life
Refashion your lifestyle
is where your new growth takes place.
Your body knows what's good for you.
Listen. Seize her wisdom.
Know when to walk away
Stay focused on your amazing creative journey
