Love Song



 What the World Needs Now




After another week of drama, tremendous change, and uncertainty, we need a positive light shone upon us.  How about a sign that the world will once again find peace and harmony?  And, that people will come together and love one another and treat all with respect and honor.  

Today, I had coffee with a dear friend, and it was refreshing to connect and be outside, masks on, laughing and enjoying the moment.  Plus, meeting new friends with interesting life stories.  After all, is not that what life is about - connection and laughter.  I also chatted with another friend on the phone and my heart was lifted.  And earlier in the day had attended a Bar Class and Tennis with friends.  All appropriately six feet apart and with masks.  The sisterhood is alive and well. 

We live in a glorious world and even though the joys of 2019 have been swept away under the carpet until the future, we can still enjoy one another.  This change is so rapid, complete, and utterly shocking. We need a lift and lots of love.  Something to believe in.  Thus, seek out the beauty in the world. Be fearless, safe and get outside.   

Finally, I was reminded of a famous Burt Bacharach song - What the World Needs Now.  I believe we need love, hope and peace now more than ever.  


What 




What the world needs now is love, sweet love
It's the only thing that there's just too little of
What the world needs now is love, sweet love,
No not just for some but for everyone.


The






Lord, we don't need another mountain,
There are mountains and hillsides enough to climb
There are oceans and rivers enough to cross,
Enough to last till the end of time.


World 





What the world needs now is love, sweet love
It's the only thing that there's just too little of
What the world needs now is love, sweet love,
No, not just for some but for everyone.

Needs




Lord, we don't need another meadow
There are cornfields and wheat fields enough to grow
There are sunbeams and moonbeams enough to shine
Oh listen, lord, if you want to know.

Now




What the world needs now is love, sweet love
It's the only thing that there's just too little of
What the world needs now is love, sweet love,
No, not just for some but for everyone.

Is Love, Sweet Love



No, not just for some, oh, but just for everyone.


Get outside. Connect with others. Where your mask and get on with your life.  This is it.  No dress rehearsal.  Though many doors have been shut and life is spinning at an outrageous speed, we will survive.  It is the human condition to be a fighter and to persevere.  Start spreading hope, love, and peace.  Put your fears aside and keep a firm foot on the ground.  Meet new people.  Learn their stories.  The world is a beautiful place.  


What the Worlds Needs Now



 




 Until Next Time!

Monday's Favorite Things - The Blazer

Classic is KeyL'Agence
Recently, I cleaned out my closet and donated seven bags of apparel.   The items ranged from high quality constructed blazers that I have owned over a decade along with other clothes that no longer fit.  It was difficult to let go of so many beautiful and well cherished pieces.  However, I know someone out there will love the blazers, skirts and suits that were donated.  They will be used rather than languishing in my closet and collecting dust. 
At the end of Finding Nemo (2003).   Nemo and his pals state, "Now What?"
When you are done purging the aftermath in a wardrobe can be unnerving.  You may find yourself in Nemo's predicament and think "Now What?""Where are my blazers for those occasions I need them?" Of course, over the last 8 months we have been primarily house bound and without need of fancy apparel.  For me, I have lived in shorts, tees, jeans, cashmere pullovers, tennis shoes and boots.  My lovely blazers were neve…

Monday's Favorite Things - The Bootie

What I love this Week?- Bootie by Aquatalia"A woman with good shoes is never ugly." Coco Chanel


Rain, cold, wind and breezy days has spread across the Pacific Northwest.  Thus, sweaters, jeans, wool coats, leather gloves, boots and booties are making a fast entrance to daily life.   It is an exciting time of the year when the world changes to the glorious colors of fall ending the days of sun and warmth.  We eagerly pull out beautiful fabrics and exquisite apparel slated for the cold fronts on the horizon. 
My favorite boot brand is Aquatalia.   I love their tall boots and booties for the rain infused months that lay ahead.   The company is based in San Francisco, California.  All the boots are crafted in Italy, with meticulous care towards Italian shoemaking.  The fit is superb and comfort exceptional right out of the box.  Additionally, Aquatalia is waterproof and stain resistant even in suede.   Now, I would not wear these beautiful numbers during a snowstorm or on a day wh…
