Time to read, Time to think

I was supposed to be,

at a bake sale,

at my church,

this morning,

volunteering,

but, freezing rain falling,

on,

my beautiful ugly,

resulted in a wise,

postponement decision.

I got to read the papers,

and,

catch up on last week’s,

I cuddled with my sweet,

George.

Did the dishes,

did some laundry,

chatted with friends,

on messenger,

about the merits of,

And Just Like That…

the HBO revisiting of,

Sex and The City.

I loved Sex and The City,

I found it smart,

I found it showed,

the challenges,

of being a woman,

a liberated,

sexually free,

yet,

looking for love,

woman.

I liked the flaws of the characters,

real people have flaws,

well drawn characters do,

as well.

Carrie, Miranda, Samantha,

and especially,

Charlotte,

often drove me crazy,

but, I liked them,

sure they dressed,

way better than they could,

have realistically afforded,

but, realism is over rated,

and not always,

so ‘real’.

Their relationships,

were messed up,

but, seriously,

aren’t most relationships,

in your thirties?

I liked Carrie and Mr Big,

I didn’t think he was a,

nice guy,

didn’t seem like,

an amazing candidate,

for father of the year,

either,

but, that Moon River scene,

shows,

that there is something,

special,

there,

in that man.

So,

****Spoiler Alert****

when he dropped dead,

at the end of episode 1,

I was shocked.

They seemed to have,

found a good place,

with each other,

they seemed happy,

at a time in your life,

when can most savour,

your happiness,

your fifties.

Sigh, sad.

I have never appreciated,

my happiness,

as much as now,

my late mid fifties.

So sometimes,

you are disappointed,

by weather cancelling plans,

but, you end up,

getting time to read,

time to think.

Have a wonderful weekend,

you all.

Later girls,

BB

I am a bookish butch in my mid early fifties. I live in Montréal and always have. I used to run a small used bookstore. Reading keeps me sane. My latest jiggie is photography, book project in the works, living the dream

  1. Miranda’s pragmatism : priceless! It is true that Charlotte could be infuriating sometimes but I found it was her character who evolved the most during the run of the series… Charlotte, by opening her eyes and also Miranda, for opening herself.
