My own personal Janus

me with purple hair

Looking back (last year)

me with green hair

Looking forward (the coming year)

I’ve switched from twilight to growth. Or perhaps I was blooming, and I’ve deadheaded the old blooms to encourage production.

Or maybe I’m just a writer stretching for a metaphor because that’s what we do, and the truth is I changed my hair from purple and red to all-over green.

Any changes you’ve made to start the year?

  1. Nothing as dashing as you. But, you see, I have many different colors of hair, anyway. There’s silver, gray, maybe white, red . . . yes! red, dishwater blonde and who knows what else. Just lots of genes I never knew about.

    As far as changes go, we will just have to see. Received a lovely brochure yesterday for a Baltic Marvels cruise. Would love to go. Know you have seen parts of it, but it would be fun. So, dreaming is my big change. S’okay?

    • Dreaming is always good!

      And, of course, one of the reasons I’m so flamboyant with my hair is to hide that not all the roots are brown. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  2. Very cool. My hair is like Kathleen’s, brown, silver, ash, lol!

    • Thanks.

      Once, I saw an ad — I don’t remember what for — that had Sophia Loren saying, “I don’t intend to grow old gracefully. I intend to fight it every step of the way.” (Actual words may have been slightly different.) I seem to have adopted this as my own modus operandi. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  3. I love the green.

    I seem to be opting to cover up my silver and gray by plopping hats on top of it.
