“st. patrick’s day is an enchanted time –
a day to begin transforming winter’s dreams into summer magic.”
here’s to the ones who
march, walk, talk, stand up, and take action
on behalf of what they believe in
today and every day
even when it’s inconvenient .
“a cause may be inconvenient, but it’s magnificent.
it’s like champagne or high heels, and one must be prepared to suffer for it.”

n is for napping in a nook
napping day is an unofficial holiday that falls on the monday after daylight savings time begins in the united states. the day was created as a way to compensate for the hour people lose because of the time change. this is one holiday that most people can get behind.
studies have shown that one or more short naps during the day can help increase productivity and alertness. it is believed that many successful people in history napped often such as: einstein, churchill, and napoleon.
…that a NASA study among pilots and astronauts found that short naps can increase performance by 34% and alertness by 54%?
“the replenishing thing that comes with a nap
– you end up with two mornings in a day.”

(a highly-compensated re-enactor above,
showing my expression and hair at sign-in)
while signing-in at the salon
i asked the receptionist
what the date was
to which she replied,
“oh, let me look. it changes every day. this keeps happening.”
i nodded in agreement and finished signing in.
‘drawing on my fine command of the english language, i said nothing.”
