Aaaah Mammoth… The magical place that has long eluded me. Finally the opportunity presented itself and off we went. The bf and I spent 4 days in Mammoth this week. My first time in the snow in more than 10 years!
There is no better place to get away with wearing bunny ears though and trust me, I abused that privilege to say the least!
The little girl that lives inside me, who had to grow up a little too quickly, now has the opportunity to be silly, sad and safe all under the fuzz and fantasy of the bunny ears.
The story behind this specific pair starts with my bestie Heather, who has had these for over 20 years. Starting a new life in my mid fourties can be a little scary and the intuitiveness Heather had to hand them over to me was heartwarming.
There is no drug on the planet that can make me feel the way I do when I wear these bunny ears.
They are truly magical.
Allowing me to recapture lost youth and innocence.
I am convinced there lies a cure for most heartaches and illnesses when becoming one with the furry ones.
I’ve had a busy last seven months since I left my marriage and started a new life.
Two new tee shirt lines…
…and a beautiful place to live…
…and great friends…
I have also had the time to reflect on the relationships I’ve had, old and new, allowing some to heal and some to grow.
However, there is just one relationship in my life that seems to loom large.
Citizen Cope’s SIDEWAYS sums it up perfect for me.
You know it ain’t easy For these thoughts here to leave me There’s no words to describe it In French or in English Well, diamonds they fade And flowers they bloom And I’m telling you These feelings won’t go away They’ve been knockin’ me sideways They’ve been knockin’ me out lately Whenever you come around me These feelings won’t go away They’ve been knockin’ me sideways I keep thinking in a moment that Time will take them away But these feelings won’t go away.
You never know what the future has in store for you… do you?
A while back I posted some pics of my dream home… not quite the 10,000 s.f. Malibu Mansion you’re thinking of - this place is a sexy, earthy, rock n roll mini palace of sorts with each room brooding with emotion.
