These two images are from my favorite restaurant in Cocoa Village, Florida.
Paisley Vegan Kitchen.
Whether you are vegan, or not, the food is delicious and the attitude matches.
The first one speaks for itself.
The second, which is a bathroom note, I especially love:
Don't flush your hopes and dreams!!
The best things I have seen in a while!
You may think that these two gentlemen have nothing in common. BUT both of them have very definitive ideas.
I believe those ideas inform us about positive aging.
HAVE A READ!
Bertrand Russell was a British philosopher, logician, mathematician, historian, writer, essayist, social critic, political activist, and Nobel laureate.
Jonathan Frid was best known for playing Barnabus Collins on the very popular series "Dark Shadows" from 1966 to 1971. He may be known as the best vampire ever played but he was also a consummate Shakespearean actor.
Here are quotes by two very different men that hit home with me!
"To me, horror is when I see somebody lying. I mean a person I know. A friend. And he's telling me something that I accept. And then suddenly, as he or she is telling it, there's something that gives them away. They're not telling me the truth. And I discover it myself, just in the way they're not telling it like it should be told. They're slipping. You see somebody slip. And they know that they're lying to you. That sends chills, shivers, right up and down my spine! It's horror! It's horror! In the cold light of day. To me, that's horror. To see two people who are ostensibly in love, and they are. He keeps saying, 'I love you, but I can't help looking at the girls.' But to me, that's horror. That's the horror of life. To make a marriage work. To make friendships work. Make relationships in life work, and see where they go awry, is horror. I don't need monsters, for God's sake. I don't need vampires and werewolves to enthrall me with the mystery of life. The mystery of life is all around us, all day long."
“Sometimes the hardest thing in life is to know which bridge to cross and which to burn”
“No one ever gossips about the virtues of others”
“Happiness is not best achieved by those who seek it directly.”
"In all affairs it's a healthy thing now and then to hang a question mark on the things you have long taken for granted."
"Do not fear to be eccentric in opinion, for every opinion now accepted was once eccentric."
"Many orthodox people speak as though it were the business of skeptics to disprove received dogmas rather than of the dogmatists to prove them."
It's pretty common knowledge how much I love animals. I have a long history with feline and. along history with the Buddha. Here is Buddha Kitty being adored by a REAL kitty. Doesn't get much cuter than this!
Whether it's human family and friends or furry family and friends having companionship and community is VERY Pro-Aging.
Here is a Chicago fan getting their good sports vibes from the Buddha Kitty.
I am SO excited to announce that this prose is being read at the Eve Ensler, V-Day - One BIllion Rising Women's event in Cincinnati, Ohio on 21 February 2020.
A gathering for women, by women to embrace our womanhood and to support women who have dealt with abuse, are refugees, experience physical and mental health challenges, struggle with identity, expression, ageism and the fact WE are STILL the most discriminated against group in the world.
This isn't a victim's story.
This is the story of survivors and those who are thriving -
