Howling at the Moon

" It filled him with a great unrest and strange desires. It caused him to feel a vague, sweet gladness, and he was aware of wild yearnings and stirrings for he knew not what ." The Call of the Wild, Chapter 7.
" He was sounding the deeps of his nature, and the parts of his nature that were deeper than he, going back into the wombs of Time." Chapter 3.
I wish I could tell other's  my feelings as well as Jack London did in Call of the Wild. Though this is a Style blog, sometimes I need to just let go. It's not my "Style" to hold things back. It is my style to admit when I've had a tough week, and my style to bounce back through letting others know what's going on. So, there, I said it. A tough week for no particular reason. Though sometimes I believe I allow myself to live in a state of dread over simple, silly stuff that hasn't even transpired . And never happens the way I think it will anyway ;) Sometimes women take on a lot. More than we really should. Then it bubbles up inside, and rather than flogging someone else, we flog ourselves. We smile and pretend that everything is fine. So, yesterday, I cried until my eyes were swollen. It felt great ! I actually feel so much better since the brain colonic :) So tonight I had a super-sized cappucino , did some night dancing and howled at the moon. I probably will be up all night, but who cares ? Tomorrow will take care of itself, as it always does :)
This is me. Right now. Kinda ;) And the lightening photos I popped off the other day during a heat-lightning drive by. It only took 500+ takes to get 3 pops, but they were awesome !
This dance was for Lesa :)
And if you're wondering : T: Old, Skirt: Penny's,clx., Hat: Target, Boots: thrifted, Pendant: World Mkt. :)
Have a bright, bright, sunshiny day :)

I'm glad to hear you're feeling better. you're absolutely right, women always take on more than we should. We always want to be the perfect everything to everyone, and sometime we just need a break. I'm trying to stay positive as my life is taking me for a ride I never imagined I'd be on, and I've cried and let it all out, and it really does feel amazing.

OMG Reva I must check out what's happening in the night sky tonight, if only it would stop raining! Seems to be something afoot as I had two uncontrollable sobbing bouts yesterday. Why? The cup filled up and spilled over - I feel so much better today - a wonderfully cathartic experience. I always feel like howling at the moon whenever I chuck on Cowboy Junkies, so you've nailed it on that count too. What a beautiful smile you have today:). I hope you have a wonderful Sunday my lovely xoxo

Reva--what a great skirt!

And has for the tears, there's a good John Lee Hooker tune that goes, "He's got it in 'im, he's got to get it out."

Let's start thinking of tears as fashion accessories!!!

We had HUGE hail in the KC area last night.

Ok, as long as we're all sharing, I had a little crying jag over some chocolate that somehow (?) made its way onto my brand new book! Aarghh!

Other than that, Reva you look GREAT! I am so loving these pictures. There's something about howling at the moon and dancing in the moonlight.
