"And the Grinch, with his Grinch-feet ice cold in the snow, stood puzzling and puzzling, how could it be so? It came without ribbons. It came without tags. It came without packages, boxes or bags. And he puzzled and puzzled 'till his puzzler was sore. Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn't before. What if Christmas, he thought, doesn't come from a store. What if Christmas, perhaps, means a little bit more?"
~Dr. Seuss

Robert Plant

Hey i just found this quote after I published my last post....

Old men do it better. We're not so sensitive in certain areas.
-Robert Plant

How old is Robert Plant?

How old is Robert Plant?

On VH1 Fresh Start this morning I watched the video of Robert Plant and Alison Krauss. I love them both and this is a great duet and a fun video. But, it got me thinking about the way men have no problem, no matter how old they get, wearing what ever they want and no one makes any remarks. I mean can you see a women in her sixties wearing tight jeans, pointy cowboy boots, total rocker hair and her shirt unbuttoned dancing to a music video? Ok, Tina Turner is the exception.
But Robert Plant looked just as cool as ever. I don’t get it.
I find myself in my forties asking…Can I wear that skirt? Is it too short? Should I cut my hair, is it too young looking? Maybe I should tone down my personality a bit, I am someone’s mother.
I don’t think that Robert Plant, David Bowie, Steven Tyler or Prince ask themselves these questions.
What is the deal???

"You'll encounter many obstacles along the road to living your dreams. Some obstacles may be real, some imagined, some may be tangible, and some may be intangible. Some of those obstacles will be created by others, and some will be self-imposed. However they manifest, you will always be given the choice as to whether you give them power."~Francine Ward
