A beautiful truth

On red lipstick

Has it really been that long since I last posted?
Yes it has!
And yet, here I am with a post about lipstick.
This is the second time in my life that I am wearing red lipstick. As in bright-red-lipstick.

I remember Paloma Picasso marketing her signature red lipstick saying that there is a red for every woman. And now, as I am moving up on the 40something scale, I begin to grasp what she says. Red means feminine, means assertive, means strong, means: "I know what I'm talking about".

I am currently wearing Estee Lauder's #120 irrepressible.
It is a racecourse red when applied, rather that the burgundy it looks like on the tube. And it is rather very matte. I keep the all red for after work. For worktime I top it with Clinique's chubby stick intense in 06 roomiest rose which gives a sweeter result on the strong basis. Please note when using red, pencil is a must! I am using Estee Lauder's nr. 7 red.

And here is a very useful video on how to aplly red lipstick!

See you later!

All Things Turtle: Kentucky Turtle Trail

Trail marker for the Sheltowee Trace trail in Kentucky. Sheltowee was the name given to Daniel Boone by the Shawnee Indians and means “Big Turtle”. This is my most favorite trail marker and makes me smile whenever I pass it. No other animal best describes my hiking style than a turtle, walking slow and low with a bulging pack on my back through the forest.

Autumn Days Welcome

And so, we stepped into Autumn
First fallen leaves
starting already in August
(these from my vacation in Crete, this past summer)

Warm Up

{ Posie Gets Cozy }

{ Habitually Chic }

Lovely soups and stews
(that no-one eats in my household)

Those fine September nights, when the dew dropped on my face and I licked it to get drunk.”

— A.Rimbaud

A sense of wild 
That calls for a life RUSTIC and PRIMITIVE

Time to set up home, cuddle and domesticate

Time to reap
to harvest 
Life's  Joys

Take the scenic route 
and live...

Autumn Leaves

Morning Prayer

{Photo found on TUmblr, some time ago}

The land does not cease to give.
But the people do grow full
and forget to give thanks.
We fill up our hollow bones and trade heritage for a set of keys,
a power line,
a sadness not filled up by all the gold from these Mountain springs.
We do our best to bring the forests and mountains down to find our gold.
it cannot fill the sadness,
save to build our homes and fill them with lights,
to fuel our cars and grind down the keys that will drive us to cemetaries
on days when we are told to remember the leftOnes,
our mothers and fathers.
But we do not go and ask for wisdom anymore.
We cannot bring ourselves to look down at the graves
and ask the soil to give us answers.
And so, the land continues to give,
while we forget to give thanks for the fullness of these hollow bones.

Body language

criticism is someone else's feelings
Remember this

Co-operate with the Universe

Dear Jonathan,The heart as a symbol of love is not universal, it is contemporary. Some cultures do not associate that shape with the feeling of love. Perhaps Pluto's lesson is that nothing emanates or has inherent meaning and all meaning is projected. Astrology then would appear to be a consensual, evolving meaning map. How wonderful that the universe co-operates with the meaning we project on it. Timaeon 

Dear Timaeon, I agree the sky seems willing to be what we want it to be. But are we willing to be what we think it wants us to be?
