Metamorphosis …

A move to a new city seems like an opportune time for personal reinvention.  Case in point, I’m tired of paying big money to have chemicals plastered on my head, so I’ve decided to go gray.  Oddly enough, I’m really excited about it!  I found a cute sharp-as-a-dart hairdresser here who totally gets it, and we’re having a good time taking me from roots to reality.  My hair is uber short, which is liberating in itself, and after my haircut next week I just might be completely white/gray/salt-and-pepper.  I take a sort of goofy pride in staying sassy, and my life has been an exercise in “hair today, gone tomorrow.”

    I think your new look is fabulous. Excellent cut which complements your face shape.

    Hi, Judy. I’ve been through that process. My fear was that instead of lovely silvery-gray hair I would have dirty yellow-gray hair. When I finally took the leap, my fears had been unnecessary. And there’s always that purple shampoo that makes the gray sparkle. Yes, it is freeing, as is short, short hair. That “goofy pride” you feel is worth owning. My new motto is “When I grow old, I don’t want people to say what a sweet little old lady she is. I’d rather they ask what on earth is she up to now.” A sense of having less time ahead that behind makes it seem ever so much more important to take those chances and try new things. Have fun!

      Thank you for that beautiful affirmation, Barbara — I feel a tremendous kinship with you! Life is far too short to be afraid to try things, make mistakes, start over, say what you think, be silly, laugh at every opportunity, and love like it’s what’s keeping you breathing.
