A June Wedding is So Romantic

Dear Diary:

I always wanted to wear a wedding gown in my second world.  Oh yes, I've been partnered but never seem to get around to the actual "ceremony".  It got me thinking that I would like to do a post wearing a wonderfully romantic creation.  After all, June is THE month for tying the knot.

So when I received this beautifully constructed and elegantly assembled '30's wedding gown as a group gift, I wanted to take a picture right away.

Good Night for now.

Scoping Out The Vintage Fair Was Fab!

Dear Diary:

Everyone knows I love era clothes so I always make an effort to visit the Vintage Fair when it comes to town.  This year I went ape!

I have a picture of my Grandmother wearing a twirly skirt with lots of crinolines underneath and sporting a beehive, the hair style of choice during the early 60's, along with the blue eyeshadow and pink lipstick.  I found the perfect outfit to copy the look.

I was freaking out when I flew into the Fair.  I just went ape over all the things I could buy.  I had to peel out in the caddy before my scratch was zilch.  This required a pic but it looks like I'm on the make.  Outta sight! 

Don't have a cow if you haven't visited the Vintage Fair yet!  There's a few days left.

btw...the 60 slang words are courtesy of my Grandma.

Good Night for now.

Hair: Letituier Beck

Thinking About Humanity

Dear Diary:

We are human.  We display human traits.  But after the events in Florida last week, the idea of humanity made me think. 

By dictionary version, humanity means "the quality or state of being human; and, the quality or state of being kind to other people or to animals".  Can this be true?  Are we kind?  Right now, it doesn't seem an honest evaluation.  And yet we bond together in times of tragedy or conflict.  We support each other and are able to empathize with someone in need.  Why can't we be like this at all times?  Why can't we treat each other with graciousness constantly?

Acceptance is difficult for a few.  Lifestyles differ and some don't have the flexibility to acknowledge that humans are not all the same.  This ignorance turns into bigotry, turns into intolerance and then to hatred.  What makes us be so egotistical that we think we have to be all the same?  And that we have to punish those of us that are different?

As humans we share many similarities.  Let's turn that sameness into positive acceptance.

My thoughts are with the survivors and families left without their loved ones.

Good Night for now.

I'm Off To A Conference

Dear Diary:

I enjoy going to conferences.  I always receive a lot of new information.  So next week I'm off to listen and learn.

The workshops I can pick, cover a wide variety of topics and never bore me.  The guest speakers are very informative and manage to put a new spin on data.  But where I get most of my tips and knowledge is after the sessions, at night, over a lovely dinner.

It seems my colleagues enjoy talking over good food and a nice glass of wine.

Good Night for now.

Just Where Are Those Fish?

Dear Diary:

Last weekend, in my first world, I went fishing with some friends.  I enjoy going out in the boat on a sunny day - not too hot; not too cold - and trying to bring in a fish or two for my supper, or ideally for a shore lunch.  This time, I was unsuccessful but I thought my second world might prove to be more fruitful.   errr...fishful!

Patience is certainly required when trying to land that "big" one.  Even the sea gulls are aware of that.

Good Night for now.
