Today is going to be a play day!

Yesterday, I worked hard.  I finally got myself to write a serious hub -- as opposed to a fun one on travel or fashion -- on AWAKENING THE HEROES WITHIN.  A book by Carol Pearson which I have used for many years in my work as a Life Coach.

It made a great hub, too, because there were twelve archetypes to summarize, so that gave me lots of word count (Google likes word count).  

Which images to use stumped me at first, but then I decided to go for creating a mood, instead of picturing the archetypes.  For the opening image, I used the statue of a male in the Piazza de la Signoria in Florence.  I don't remember who he was, but every time I looked out the French doors of that wonderful apartment, I looked directly at him.  Plus, he is so heroic looking.

Back to playing.

My sister, Harriet, is coming this morning to spend the night -- a rare treat, as she can seldom leave home for an overnight visit.  I'm thinking of ways we can play.  I think, maybe, we'll have lunch at the Cypress Inn, make a couple of quick trips to Manna Grocery and Publix, and then I want to introduce her to a new little shop in Midtown called Soca.  I've only been there once, but I saw several tops I would like to buy for the cruise (I leave May 12 and return May 28).

The image at the top of the page, however, is of the new eyeshadow kit I bought yesterday at Ulta, an Urban Decay set called "Naked 2,"  whatever that means.  The colors are soft and subtle (maybe that's what it means).  I love the teal and the lavender, and all the bronze tones.  Maybe we'll play make-up tonight.

Women's Work

Of course, we'll do our serious work, too, this evening after the shopping and the eating.  If the Monday Night Group (Lindsey, Genevieve, and Stephan) come, I'll work Harriet into that group as well.
Women's Work was the original name of the "work" I did when I first came back from Zurich. It is from a quotation from May Sarton:  "Women's work is always toward wholeness."

Now,  though, Life Coach is better, because men want to work, too.  Maybe even Life Style Coach, and that could include my interests in fashion, travel, photography, and design.  Hummmm!  I wonder how I could change the name of my blog?????

  1. Oh my goodness Sandra, I LOVE that eyeshadow palette! I have the first one (just called NAKED, the one you have is NAKED 2) and it's awesome. I couldn't believe you had it on here! Haha :)

    Loving the hubs you're doing on the archetypes, so so helpful! Have fun with a play day! Love you!
