Some people can't see their own lives....
They need a hero.

They live in a kind of darkness.

They think that the only way they can see is by using someone else's light.
-GOD ( Joan of Arcadia )
Hi Everybody !

I've been watching old 'Joan of Arcadia' re-runs and I always take something away from this simple, yet, really deep T.V. show...
(which was cancelled after only 2 seasons...)

I love it when I hear something that I've heard a thousand different ways, then hear it in a different medium and it resonates as if I am hearing some kind of universal truth for the first time! I love that!
Many people would say that it's because you weren't 'ready' to hear it....

I suppose that's a sort of way to express why I started style blogging - to meet cool people, and think about why I have chosen to dress a certain way, and find other's who can relate to my choices and hold a lighted mirror to my face, and in a thoughtful comment, say "you rock", whether they "like" what I'm wearing or not - who are my lights!

 There are so many Lights in my life that have helped me keep on blogging, trying,
and I could never list them all, 
but there is one who comes to mind right away, and that is The Citizen Rosebud, who is such a great friend and mentor to have in my corner.
My Mom #2, My Brother 
and Sister-in-law, and so many more!
All the people who pop by with encouraging thoughts, 
(You know who you are ;)
And for this I say Thank you...
You Rock :)

Check out my blog-roll for more great lights, 
I finally up-dated it ;)
And if I missed someone, please let me know...
Reva :)

I need to go back, and watch that show. I always forget how great it was. I think we all need positive lights in our lives, and for ourselves to be enough as well. I'm going to try telling myself I'm a rockstar sometime, because if an amazing woman like you does it, I know it will work for me. Keep shining your light Reva, and don't let anyone burn you out.

I know exactly what you mean about finding or hearing things in something you've heard or seen before. I was like that with Joanie Mitchell's "Both Sides Now."

Reva--we all love you! {hugs}

Reva! I just woku up 4:30 am with an anxiety attack. Horrible stuff. Tired and exhausted but trying to keep going. and I see your wonderful face on my FB wall, and come over here and read your wonderful words- oh thank you my dear friend! You really touch me, I feel like we've been pals forever, and to think just a short while and because I saw you rockin' it out on Weardrobe! LOL. You rock, that is all I can say- you are a bright light! xo. Bella Q

Reva~I never watched that series either, but I know what you mean about resonating. Sometimes things just hit you.
those boots are really cut on you but I have this thing against wearing boots in the summer--its just that I have to wear them so long in the winter....
And what do you say to someone who dosent have your blog on their blog role? I mean, what if they dont like your blog? ps. is mine on yours?
