Wow, last night was a gorgeous lunar eclipse and the full moon makes me feel wild and restless. I’m still hyper and giggling with manic glee over my new burlesque name. The entire persona is already well planned out- so many reasons I love hanging out with different types of creative minds. Even if Betty Cocker only ever shows up when I’m at home baking, she’ll have great costumes. Life is art. Which reminds me; I regularly encourage people around me to break into song or dance, and it’s finally paying off. It’s beautiful to hear how people sing when they’re completely comfortable, it’s like humans purring.
Speaking of human noises, it’s super distressing to read the news. What a messy creation humans are, and horribly violent. I’m still helping out with the gardening group down at the center for the homeless, and I can’t say enough about how the gentle arts facilitate healing and foster hope. I may never make a fortune, but I swear by the power of art, cooking, and community to make positive changes in the world. Tiny bits at a time.
Since I currently can’t make warm and fuzzy happen on a large scale, I’ll focus on my sexy burlesque character, and fantasize about what my baking oriented costume will look like, and what music to choose. Oooo, imagine a room full of hot men in uniform, and I can feed them cupcakes! Hmmm. I do love to tease. My formerly wild sex-positive ethical slut side thinks I could take on a squadron, but in reality, I’d rather just write about it. However, Betty Cocker may have to come out of the kitchen and manifest on stage. Since the thought of performing terrifies me and makes me want to bolt, that might have to be my next mission. I need more fabulous in my life, and then I can put more energy out there. My pro photographer friend just suggested doing a pinup photo shoot in our cute vintage kitchen- too perfect for words. And really, I’ve just been waiting for an opportunity to wear icing pasties, my cute little apron, a garter belt, and those ridiculous stilettos. lmfao. I’m never bored. Perhaps I just need to find the right appreciative audience to inspire. omgomg my new bed just got delivered. Going to christen it right now.
