Girl with a Gun

No sooner had I started work after almost two years of being a self-employed writer/student that my social life exploded in my face.

I was invited to a 60s themed birthday party a couple of weeks ago.
Everyone looked swish in their psychedelic mini shift dresses and coloured knee high boots. I didn't follow the 60s theme, preferring to wear a black mini skirt and a cream and black polka dot corset that I had succumbed to while shopping in Bardot.
I tried saying I was Minnie Mouse but my delicious hostess corrected me and said I had come as Betty Page. I knew better than to contradict the birthday girl!

One of the guests who was wearing khaki ranger pants and shirt carried a revolver attached to his waist. So I asked if I could "borrow his gun" and decided to pose with it. Shane took a couple of photos of me.


This was taken about an hour before I developed introversion-itis and left the party early. I still had some energy left when it was taken and the noise/smoke/alcohol had not yet affected me.

Your blog is so amazing. I came across it googling Lao Tzu's quote ''when I let got of who I am, I become what I might.'' (Something I'm trying to doing now)
I came across your post about the meaning of success, everything you wrote made so much sense! I think I might print that post of and stick it on my wall.

Your write so well, I remember the last time I was this impressed by a writers style was years ago when I first read Jane Eyre.

I play with the idea of starting a blog to document my journey and when I read your blog it makes me want to go do it! Although, i'm nowhere near as clever as you are!

I love the art work as well!

Keep it the great work

Your words of encouragement have really touched me Sabbah. Thank you.

I am currently editing my first novel, so let's hope potential publishers can also find as much value in my writing as you have.
Crossing my fingers.

Thank you again.
