glitt-her.

Standard

(yet another underpaid re-enactor)

when at the salon recently

my stylist was combing out my hair and asked:

“why do you have glitter in your hair?”

now, there are many possible scenarios

some more accepted than others

but i suppose in my case

it most likely has to do with

my being

a kindy teacher

a creator of mixed-media collage art

and

a fan of glitter

and i see

that a pattern

has begun to emerge

when family and friends and colleagues

and even my cat

quite often have glitter on them

after spending time with me

and my grandson mentions

that he always finds glitter stuck to him

after we’ve been hanging out together

and people sometimes

brush glitter off of their legs

after getting out of my car

but

some people leave footprints

and

some people leave glitter

and that’s how you know

they’ve been there.

“when you’re around me, you’re going to get glitter on you.”

  1. Personally I think it is wonderful that you have glitter on your and leave it on the people and places you see. What we need is more exuberance and expression and less nervous conformity so I view you as a pioneer and brave warrior in the face of dullness. Long may you continue to sparkle 🙂 🙂
