I am so glad the word zlightly was added to this week’s
Three Muses challenge, it gave me an artistic license to veer.
Is this zetti? Not quite but almost.
Although I am happy with my Beautiful mind Mimes…

One of my favorite videos that I used to watch with my kids was Winnie the Pooh and the Blustery Day.
This morning while tending to my outside livestock I felt a wee bit like dear old Pooh.
This beautiful autumn morning greeted me with sun and swift moving air.
As the air moved faster, the leaves fell from the trees twirling and dancing like snow in a January blizzard… My tiny brown donkeys ran as fast as they could to taste the treats that fall to the ground only one time a year. As I was finishing up my work I heard a sound like falling hail and turned my head in time to be plummeted by a large amount of hickory nuts that the wind had picked from the near by tree.
Ouch, I said as I move out of the way. I then stopped to look and listen to the sights and sounds that only autumn can bring.
My little Eeyore friends were busy with their fresh fallen leaves. Nuts were plopping on the ground for the squirrel
to gather later today. The air became thick with the tinted autumn leaves, the sound was dry and rustling, it was a true New England song. A moment of content filled my heart; how lucky am I.
As I walked down my hilly lawn, the air was filled with maple leaves that were just set free from huge antique trees.
I couldn’t help but smile and just as my lips turned up to the biggest smile of all
I began to shed some tears. I wish my little Piglets were home so we could share that story once more.

Every once in a while a movie comes along that you just can’t let go of, it occupies your head like a burrowing worm in a hickory nut.
This is one of them …
My hubby and I watched this last week and these two women have been a part of our daily discussions since…
Like everyone else, we have questioned the whys and wherefores, like everyone else we philosophize.
It was this movie that sparked my last post because it was high society that doomed these women.
My elderly employer that I mentioned in my last post told me of her coming out party at the Ritz,
boating on the Hudson and formal dances at West Point during her college years. She was just a few years older than Little Eddie.
Like the Beales,
my employer sold her Tiffany jewelry to continuer her life style after her divorce.
However, unlike the Beales she did receive a large inheritance from her grandmother that was not in a trust making her story and her outcome very different from that of the two women from Grey Gardens.
I have not seen the original documentary but plan to soon.
And if you have not seen the HBO movie I can highly recommend it, both Drew Barrymore and Jessica Lange were outstanding in this film.
When I first saw the trailer for the documentary Grey Gardens, I decided I was not going to see either film because it made me
feel very uncomfortable. I am glad I got past that ….
