Life is getting in the way of writing. Don’t you hate when that happens. All of the obligations of adulthood getting in the way of something you really want to do? I’ll be honest, it’s not a matter of time, really. I know that I have an hour here and there to sneak in some writing. It’s my head. So many things are happening and my mind just won’t get in that writing place. Writers know what I’m talking about. Actually, you all know what I’m talking about. When you just can’t get into that head space that you need to get into in order to do that thing you want to do.

Though I can’t get into all of the topics I’d like to right now, I’ll talk about my hair for just a minute. It’s growing and growing fast and I don’t hate it. Here’s a picture above. Okay, that was all of 30 seconds. I’ll give a minute or more soon. Promise.

I know you’ll be waiting on the edge of your seats.

In the meantime, you can read about the gray (or platinum as my friend calls it) beginning here.

      1. I love it! I think platinum/grey/white/pewter whatever you want to call it, is so striking, on so many women. I’m scared once I start the process, I’m not going to recognize myself, or that people will treat me differently. But, I also want to start being more authentic in my life. And, I’m tired of pouring chemicals/hair dye on my head. And, I’m tired of the expense.

      2. I’ll be honest. The first two months were the most difficult. I was walking around talking “gray revolution” and all that jazz, but I was wearing headbands to cover the skunk line. Then a friend called me out on it. He said, either you’re doing it or you’re not. So I did and I’ve had some comments (a kid on the bus telling his Mom that I looked liked Cruela DeVille) but there are more positive comments than not. People think it’s cool, and a lot of people think it’s dyed this way on purpose. lol

        Good luck with your decision. I know it’s not an easy one!! Let me know how I can support.

  1. OMIGOSH! It’s simply GORGEOUS! REALLY! Very brave of you to do this at such a young age – yes, 43 is YOUNG & SASSY! I’m 52 and am trying to prepare myself for going gray and not looking back!

    In fact, I’m blogging about women going gray on my blog for this year’s A to Z Blog Challenge. Would YOU please consider being my ‘Q’? (vazQuez)….? pretty please? You can checkout my site here ( and see what’s being posted. I’m on ‘N’ today…Q is coming up fast and I have no Q. Be my Q! I beg of you! (hey,that rhymes!)

    Seriously, would you consider answering a few questions and submitting a few photos?
    You have total control over what you say…I basically post your answers word-for-word & at the end, point folks back to your website, twitter…whatever you like.

  2. You have to be proud! You’re one of the lucky ones with a lot of volume to your hair. Looking good, girl, glad you made it through unscathed! Mine starts today with your inspiration. Not looking forward to the first few months but it’s all or nothing like you said. Congrats again!
