back to the fairy tale feeling

Letting your hair down
Mature single ladies

Fine Print:

Not on any map,
fruitless to wait for
Prince Charming
is not on his way there*

*(believe me, I have waited!!  – see youtube for my song).

(Like me on facebook/myspace: Distressed Damsels…
I’m the one wearing the “Prince Charming-is-an-idiot” shirt!)

Weekly Photo Challenge: Gone but not forgotten

greek summer beach

Let me stop here. Let me, too, look at nature awhile.
The brilliant blue of the morning sea, of the cloudless sky,
the yellow shore; all lovely,
all bathed in light.

Let me stand here. And let me pretend I see all this
(I really did see it for a minute when I first stopped)
and not my usual day-dreams here too,
my memories, those images of sensual pleasure.

                                                                               Constantine P. Cavafy, Greek Poet, 1863 – 1933
Εδώ ας σταθώ. Κι ας δω κ’ εγώ την φύσι λίγο.

Θάλασσας του πρωιού κι ανέφελου ουρανού
λαμπρά μαβιά, και κίτρινη όχθη· όλα
ωραία και μεγάλα φωτισμένα.

Εδώ ας σταθώ. Κι ας γελασθώ πως βλέπω αυτά
(τα είδ’ αλήθεια μια στιγμή σαν πρωτοστάθηκα)·
κι όχι κ’ εδώ τες φαντασίες μου,
τες αναμνήσεις μου, τα ινδάλματα της ηδονής.
