Curls flounced and bounced as Tal moved to a beat only she could hear. “Huhhhhh! Look at this!”
“Tomorrow is an anniversary…” Cal ran her dominant index across the squares. “… first chemo… We can do hard things.”
“What a diffffff-errrrr-ents a year makes!” Thalia’s wiggles overcame her seat. She popped up to standing. “That movie we watched last night — those women — what they did! So many smiles — and such laffff-ter!”
Nią grimaced. “You will NOT talk us into anything like that!”
Calliope tapped her fingers on her cheek… Her money was on Thalia.
The flowers of Yorkshire are like the women of Yorkshire, the last stage of their growth is the most glorious.

I remember when “Calendar Girls” was released. Created a bit of buzz.
Fast forward almost 10 years and my wife had decided (well, circumstances had a lot to do with the decision) to have a double mastectomy. The second most important decision involved reconstruction vs none.
At that time, an excellent tattoo artist (former favorite of motorcycle gangs) in New Jersey had begun offering tattoos for women who had opted for no reconstruction. His artistry and mastery allowed him to produce work that astounded many. Not just his clients.
Now I see from time to time collections of images of women who had foregone reconstruction. Many participants describe the experience as “empowering.” But either decision can have its drawbacks.
Yes, this is an extreme illustration of recent discussion here about living in the present, having life goals, while still being able to respond to the curve balls that come our way. Living a life of purpose sometimes means redefining that purpose. A heightened focus. A new and different book project. Trying out new skills and loving it. And not being diverted from our chosen path. (Knowing where the North Star lives)
Some might choose to discard all reminders of unwanted detours. Others turn them into art! 🤗
“We’re going to need considerably bigger buns.” 😂🤣😂
What a great trailer 🎬 clip 🎞️ you shared!
Looks like a MUST watch film to me!
Isn’t it interesting, I mean really interesting just how much difference a day makes? And 365 of them? Whoa 🤯!
