this woman is a gifted writer…always able to cut through the baloney and arrive poignantly at the crux of the matter…
My whole life has been decided by fate. I think something more powerful than we are decides our fates for us. I know one thing – I`ve never planned anything that ever happened to me.
Not to be creepy, but I’m thinking about Sharon Tate.
It happened yesterday when I started writing about my absolute favorite blonde women in the world, which started with the 70’s and Farrah Fawcett (big shock), stayed with the 70’s (another shocker) and rightly ended up in the 70’s (yup), in L.A. on Cielo Drive.
Sharon Tate was mostly known for her role in Valley Of The Dolls and her marriage to French-Polish director Roman Polanski. She was seriously and stunningly gorgeous.

my husband has ridden a motorcycle since he was 18. i could never really understand what the attraction was until i came across this saying the other day,”four wheels move the body. two wheels move the soul.”
two of my friends and i were discussing our families the other day. J and A and i have been friends since grade school…yeah,THAT long! anywho,we arrived at this conclusion. we are all married. we have 9 children between us. kids ages range from 8 to 26 and they are all doing very well. grades are taken seriously,part-time jobs and summer jobs are taken seriously, Mass on Sunday is taken seriously,chores are taken seriously(most of the time)…what gives? we are all two-parent families. children need a mom and a dad at home. i know a woman who is a single mom. a great person, she struggles to be both mom and dad to her 2 daughters. her stress level is high…arguing constantly over child support that these men do not want to pay, in and out of court a few times a year, arranging and paying for babysitters while she works because no partner is there to share the responsibility. it is stressful and her girls suffer for it also.
at a high school graduation party this week-end, i made the acquaintance of three new graduates. all of these young women had infants in tow. no fathers in the picture. what are we teaching our youth?
