Osda Sunalei [Good Morning in Cherokee]
WHEN YOU'RE HAVING FUN!
It's July 2nd already?! Time sure does fly when you're having fun. This time travel feels similar to when I turned 40; all the sudden the next day I needed reading glasses. My eyeballs literally changed prescriptions overnight. Oh well, at least there are some cute stylin' reading glasses out there. And just one month ago today when I turned 46 the very next morning I looked in the mirror and screamed, "What the hell happened to my waist!?!"
That reminds me of something hilarious. One day my mom and I were going out loafin' when just before I put the car into gear I put on my glasses. Mom said, "Since when did you start wearing your glasses?" This is because since the day I started wearing contacts in high school, I have absolutely refused to wear my prescription glasses. They can market feather-weight lenses all they want but it doesn't apply to my goober lookin' lenses. So I said to her, "Well these are just glass, they aren't really prescription." She let out a belly laugh and said, "So why are you wearing them?" knowing full well my answer would be a bit whacked. I said, "Because they look cute and I can't drive without them! Plus, don'tcha think I look smart?" We laughed so hard we cried. Then I ran back in the house and grabbed my spare pair and we loafed all day both wearing these silly non-prescription glasses. Guess you had to be there. You should have seen the wild look I received from the clerk when I told her that I just wanted the frames with a non-prescription lens. HA! Well, they had a deal when I had my appointment for new contacts and I didn't want to waste it on glasses I wouldn't wear. It made perfect sense to me. Waste not, want not.
So I like wearing glasses folks but not for real! Wouldn't it be a wonderful world if we all just had fun being us and stopped taking ourselves and others so seriously. Our family and friends would probably appreciate the lighter and happier side of us. What if we could all just let down our hair, take a joke and laugh a little. I probably have more fun just being me and doing my silly antics all by myself than I do having fun with anyone else. I absolutely Love teasing, silly and sarcastic people. One of my favorite teasers is when my daughter Karmen calls me early in the morning after I have been up nearly all night working. It never fails. I don't know what kind of radar that girl has going. When I answer the phone after a long night I have this man-voice going on. Usually you can tell when I have had one of those long nights in my radio broadcast. Oh yeah, the man voice, it's real nice. When I answer the phone Karmen will invariably say, "DAD?!?"
As Saturn edges closer and closer to Virgo on September 2, 2007 it will seek to limit and restrict. This will be interesting because Virgo is THE MOST perfectionistic, nit-picky, methodical, detailed and critical sign of the zodiac. This Virgo energy is rarely that fun to be around when it is being serious, critical and nagging. Gees, how fun is that?!? Saturn will be teaching us a thing or two about perfectionism and how to "lighten up" and take a chill pill. We all have Virgo in our Natal Chart on one of our house cusps. So we will all be feeling this squeeze in one of our houses but not as much as a full-blown Virgo. The most important reminder I can give you about trying to be perfect is this . . . Remember what they did to the last guy that was perfect?
"Now get out there, go place yourself UP!
and practice being you."
