BLUE HAIR??

Image
My hair color is naturally gray. I've added some blue, green and violet. I have to laugh when the younger folk ask me where I got my hair dyed... GRAY!!! 

A friend once suggested I dye my hair black. I didn't see the point. 

I get many compliments about my blue hair. I must give credit to my hairdresser in Busan!! 

When I suggest to people that perhaps they might color their hair too, they decline.

"It wouldn't be right. People would criticize and see me as an outcast," they say. 

Really? Seriously? Is that how they they see me? 

In fact I remember that when I was a youth the older, or elderly, women were dying their hair in pastel colors of pinks and blues. We used to point a finger in judgement. Shame on us!!!

I'm not trying to look younger. I like blue. I like colors. I want to have a colorful life!

Hey! It's time to get "out of your comfort zone". Live life! 

YOLO - - You only live once so make it fun and joyous!

Don't Postpone Joy!

Who wouldda thought that this would happen to someone in their 7th decade? Okay, so maybe someone like Betty White?

   “Enjoy life!” White shared enthusiastically. “Accentuate the positive, not the negative.” Following this up with a quick disclaimer that it may sound “trite,” White then proceeded to identify society’s natural gravitation toward complaining. “It’s not hard to find great stuff if you look,” she countered.

   Most people my age (born 1954 - you do the math!) are thinking about retirement. Not me. It was precisely for this reason that I decided it was time to spread my wings and fly.
