Ah, the Simple Life!

GREASE is the word…I love musicals-Gene Kelly, Fred & Ginger, Camelot, GREASE…I love them all!

Last night, I watched the 25th anniversary video of GREASE-yikes!  I remember my 1st time seeing it!

And a few nights ago, I was watching the History of the Musical on public TV-(summer reruns were on!)

It talked about how musicals brought us to happy, simpler times with clear cut lines of good & bad, hero or villain, heroine or not…

Musicals were more popular during war, unrest, Cold War…

Thought of GREASE-preppies vs. greasers-simple.  Set in the 50s-easy plot-boy meets girl, says goodbye, sees girl-acts like a "cool" jerk,loses girl, wins her back after she changes!

Well, at least, it was simple then…Not Now.  Changing yourself to please someone else is futile and very disappointing.  If it’s not really you-you’ll resent this role- it could be to win a relationship, a job, a career, even, your image of how a small business person should be.

This isn’t a musical-but very simple-life is here & now-not a dress rehearsal before the BIG SHOW!

Simple, right?


Take care

  1. I have no idea if it’s just me or if perhaps everybody else encountering issues
    with your site. It appears as though a few of the written text in your posts are running away from the screen.

    should this be happening for them too? This might become a problem with
    my browser because I’ve had this happen before. Many thanks

  2. Today, I went to the beach with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the
    shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and
    it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I
    know this is totally off topic but I had to tell someone!
