    Still Too Young To Care

    I wear my miniskirts in winter.  I own my own saxophone.  I wear my high heels on escalators. I date men too old, women too young, and boys too committed.  I eat my lamb pink in the middle and I dance alone in the lobby of restaurants.  I go out without a scarf, and I walk...

    I Sometimes Wonder ...

    I sometimes wonder if I've learned anything ...If I look back over life experiences, and believe me at my age there are plenty to choose from, I like to track progress and see if I have actually matured and handle things any better than I did when I was younger. Mostly I seem to...

    No Reruns For Me

    Reruns of old mistakes that is.  The one valuable lesson I've learned is this:  Never jump  back into the same skillet.  You'll get burned worse, the second time around.

    Too Old And Taken

    I am old enough to know that a married man is not available and you should not tell him if you have a crush on him or make suggestions that could lead to the two of you being together without others around. But now I have and I must stop what is going on in case it goes too far...
