Both Hermit and Cleo have had very similar life experiences, however, both handle their reactions to the journeys in a different way. Cleo likes to surround herself with golden jewels, precious stone, some more dazzling than others. While Cleo likes beds of woven wool from the softest fleece, and dresses in custom designs.. Hermit likes the simplicity of just BEING. They look very different, but they both have suffered the various experiences only living LIFE can give us.
We all deal with having our hopes dashed, a day of bitter disappointments, a thoughtless cutting word or sentence that is aimed at us. In the end, they are only moments in time. Once lived, we move on. Each person copes in his/her own way. But cope we do, it is built in to our DNA. Have faith, God is always with us, tomorrow is another day. ( PL Precept #11 )
Be thankful at the beginning and end of each day. Each and everyone of your actions can inspire peace within your family, your community and the world around you. This peace will eventually help lead to World Peace.

It is only natural that YOU are different from others. Each of us has our own way of thinking and our own individual lifestyle. that’s what makes life interesting.

I’ve explained to Hermit (doll in last post) that she is who she is, and not everyone will find her to their liking. She understands, at least she says she does, but a friend noted, she looked sad. So I took another look, I took a good look and sought to see the sadness. But it didn’t come, for when I look at her, I feel joy, and giddy sense of “wow, you really rock” She wears her years of experiences, lost love, forgotten friendships, and numerous disappointments for all to see. She can’t help it, she was made this way. I didn’t try to change her, I simply gave her breaks, bruises and scars the recognition they deserved.
We have all felt pain, longing, sadness, we’ve loved, we’ve cried, and the disappointments have taken their toll. Yet, the reality is they have actually made us stronger and more beautiful/handsome., then ever. For in living life, we learn more about our SELVES.. The me, in I.
Chinese New Year (Rat) is January 25th. In China this celebration of “family” and LIFE… goes on for weeks, when able to, everyone that can, heads home. To you my friends, I wish you all, Long life… prosperity and Good health.. YOU are all part of my family.
I should have taken a before picture. But… I don’t think I did. She is long, lean and beautiful in her half skeletal form.. maybe at a later date, I will polish her bones that are protruding. For now.. I’m happy to let her rest and bask in the sunlight that streams in from the window on sunny days.
Put your whole heart into everything and express your individuality. When you put your whole heart into expressing yourself, your true beauty will shine through.

the blank BJD comes from China. I do the makeover.
Chinese New year (Rat) this Lunar year will be January 25. My door is old and I use it often to paint on, or simply try out new techniques. Solid wood, it is dependable and always welcoming. (to me).. At this time of year, it gets a festive holiday New Year greeting (blessing) for those in the home and friends coming in.
To the right of the entrance door is the old milk box, where the delivery service would come in the mornings, take away the old empty bottles and exchange them for fresh new milk, if lucky with a wonderful dollop of cream floating on top. How many of you remember these boxes…
Yes Norm, the door is faded from the last time you saw her. Maybe this spring, I will give her a new look. Stay tuned =^_^=
