I have been waiting to wear this blazer for awhile now. I got it this summer at an H&M while abroad in Spain and I absolutely love it! I think it looks so cute with jeans but you can also dress it up with a pencil skirt or dress pants. I had meetings to go to today so I decided this would be a good day to finally wear it. I also decided to wear my favorite heels which are from J. Crew. They are so comfy and the perfect little heel for when you know you will be on your feet a lot.

And now, back to the loving…

The Year(s) of Living Non-Judgmentally

Yesterday, when some things were beautiful and other things were not, this sign was in my way:


… which triggered a 1982 memory I have of Boston stand-up comic Lenny Clarke.

My ex-husband and I had gone to see E.T. the Extra-terrestrial at a local cineplex.  While we were waiting to be let into the theater, I noticed Lenny Clarke — whom we’d seen at many local comedy clubs —  in the large crowd. The wait dragged on for a loooong time, with management giving us updates about problems with the projector.  Just as the mood threatened to turn ugly, Lenny Clarke yelled, “Okay, everybody!” and sang out “EVERYTHING IS BEAUTIFUL  IN ITS OWN WAY ”

If you’re not familiar with that song by Ray Stevens, here it is:

Do you think that song is beautiful in its own way?  Do you think any of the other…
