My first love

When I hear you

I feel at ease

Sometimes I shed a tear

For when I hear you 

I recall times

That were dear to me

When I hear you

I want to dance

Sometimes I feel shy

For when I hear you

I recall times

When I secretly smiled

When I hear you

I lose myself

I  feel as free as a dove

For when I hear you

I find my true self

“Music”…you are my first love!




To leave or to dye

I was combing my hair one fine morning when I noticed a few silver strands shining through the rest of my black locks.

Here is where the “shocked” emoji might come in handy. Okay, maybe not…it was bound to happen.  It’s not as though I am a teenager, or a 20 something or a 30 something. 😀

So, was I to run out to the store and pick out one of the top-of-the-line hair coloring products?    Or was I to simply accept reality and write them off as a sign of wisdom? 😀

Really, there is no right or wrong answer here.  It’s just a matter of preference.  Basically, we have to do what makes us comfortable and happy. 

All that being said, I can return to my specific case.  I remembered that I had seen a silver strand a few years ago but it was not particularly conspicuous because of the volume of the rest of my hair.  Now, I was seeing about three strands, still relatively unnoticeable, but there for sure.  My immediate solution was to blend it into the rest of my hair!

I knew that I would eventually need to make a decision on whether to “Leave or Dye”.  For now, I figure that I will just let nature take its course on this one.  Perhaps it will start to look like grey highlights as the grey to black ratio increases by year?  If not, I could reconsider my decision at that time.  

I guess the one question that lingers in my mind is “Why would I want to dye it?”  I have not come up with a single reason…yet. 😀

As I always say to myself, nothing in life is permanent. So being able to retract a personal decision would also fit into that category (if it comes down to that).  A personal disclaimer if you will.

Grey, black or whatever the color of the day, we should always keep in mind our  true colors. In the end, that is what people will remember about us the most!

Now, it’s time to break out in the Cyndi Lauper hit that seems to capture the gist of this post:

And I’ll see your true colors
Shining through
I see your true colors
And that’s why I love you
So don’t be afraid to let them show
Your true colors
True colors are beautiful
Like a rainbow!
