Adele in Spring's Fabulous Frocks Annie Leibovitz

Adele, Annie Leibovitz 

“Life is so much easier when you don’t hoard your past.”

 

“Lovers and madmen have such seething brains
Such shaping fantasies, that apprehend
More than cool reason ever comprehends.”
William Shakespeare, A Midsummer Night’s Dream

Free admission to those who dream…

“If you are a dreamer, come in,
If you are a dreamer, a wisher, a liar,
A hope-er, a pray-er, a magic bean buyer…
If you’re a pretender come sit by my fire
For we have some flax-golden tales to spin.
Come in!
Come in!”
Shel Silverstein, Where the Sidewalk Ends

“I like to have a martini,
Two at the very most.
After three I’m under the table,
after four I’m under my host.” ― Dorothy Parker

“There is much we can learn from a friend who happens to be a horse.”

 

Anything can be…

“Listen to the mustn’ts, child.

Listen to the don’ts.

Listen to the shouldn’ts,

the impossibles,

the won’ts.

Listen to the never haves,

then listen close to me…

Anything can happen, child.

Anything can be.”  ― Shel Silverstein

Four Women

My skin is black

My arms are long

My hair is woolly

My back is strong

Strong enough to take all the pain

That’s been inflicted again and again

What do they call me

My name is AUNT SARAH

My name is Aunt Sarah

My skin is yellow

And my hair is long

Between two worlds

I do belong

My father was rich and white

He forced my mother late one night

So here I am, what do they call me

My name is SAFFRONIA

My name is Saffronia

My skin is tan

My hair is fine

But my hips invite you

And my mouth is like wine

Whose little girl am I?

 Anyone who has money to buy

What do they call me

They call me SWEET THING

My name is Sweet Thing

My skin is brown

my manner is tough

‘Cause I’ll kill the first mother I see

my life has been much too rough

I’m awfully bitter these days

because the only parents I know were slaves

What do they call me

My name is PEACHES
