Fairwell to One of My Favorite Vintage Dresses by Luis Estevez

Oh, it was a melancholy farewell today to this couture beauty: My first, and so far only, Luis Estevez dress.


Talk about wearing pure light and liquid. I bet the fair maiden that will wear this dress will look like a glowing
goddess.

It was really fun photographing and enjoying this wonderful vintage dress from the famous American fashion designer Luis Estevez. Good bye little disco-ball-of-dress, enjoy your new owner.

The DISCO BALL. or the Ball Mirror...




So I'm sourcing the web, and I find this.... http://www.sarasotasalvage.com/product.php?ID=275

Wow, the disco ball just has to be one of may favorite manmade objects d' arte...First introduced into nightclubs and gin-joints in the 1920's, ( No wonder I love them), http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Disco_ball
The ball of mirrors is truly representative of everything fun and 'spar-tacular' . Wouldn't you just love
to have this, and you can, for only $7500.00. If I had the
moola, it would be worth every penny. I love it.

Since I don't have the scratch, I just had to find a way to create my own Disco Ball...
I stumbled on a $1 little spinning disco ball at Target, took a picture and put it on a T'.
Fun stuff. www.Nouveau-Tees.com.

A Funny Thing Happened To me At The Post Office

Oh, the places we go...
Shopping, errand running, driving here and there...Running and scurrying to try to accomplish each thing that we have on or to-do list. In the middle of our endless task-mastering, we get caught-up in the destination...focusing on each goal, we loose track of enjoying the moment, the journey. Skirting over the surface of life from chore to chore, I find that I often miss opportunities to connect.

The funny thing at the post office today reminded me of a few lessons:

  1. To try to live and focus on the moment. You could really miss out on a human connection, by being so disconnected.
  2. Focusing only on the destination, not being in the NOW, you may find that weeks have slipped-by, then years...and you think "Is that all there is?" You miss the magic of life.
  3. Life is so effervescent, so fleeting. Grab it NOW. You only have today.

As I fill out my postal forms, with my invisible blinders on ( keeping me from engaging with strangers or disturbing the postman), My mind races overy my list of what to do next, where to go next...

The 'musak' plays overhead a familiar tune, just an unoticed soundtrack until the customer beside me remarks to the postman---- "You know, I used to hear this song and think that the "old-man' was my DAD, and now that old man is ME".

At that moment my ears tune- in to the Neil Young song piped through the concrete building, "Old man take a look at my life I'm a lot like you..." Then I connected with the wise man beside me, who with one statement brought me back to the journey of life, tuning me in, and bringing me back to the now, back to connecting with others and LIVING.

I said to him with a half-laugh smile, "Man, I'll have to write about this."

We all had a laugh and my day was completely transformed.
