Carol Perkins: Change is in the air
Previous Column: New beginnings and rebirth
By Carol Perkins
Like the weather, I often feel a change blowing my way. Not necessarily concerning my physical self, which could always use updating, but more than likely about my surroundings. Moving a chair from one room to another or hanging up-to-date family photos often calms these strong winds.
This past year, with Guy's help, I have made significant changes in the house, but I've run out of ideas. It is now time for a personal improvement project. A remake.
In February, I upgraded my eyewear.
Having worn the same frames for at least a decade (or longer), I chose what I thought was a more modern one, but not one person has noticed. Not one single person, including my mother. When I mentioned this to Guy, he said, "The new ones aren't too different from the old ones." I wish he had told me that before I bought them. Deviating from the "old" isn't easy. (I do the same thing when buying clothes!)
Changing my hairstyle is my next project. I want to look different, but in a flattering way. So far, finding a new, suitable style has been challenging. I'm not crazy about the modern hairstyles: long, straight, and parted in the middle. What has happened to bouncy curls and layering? The days of Farrah are over!
If I want to find a "new" style, I should visit a wig shop and try on different ones until I find one I like. I might even try on a gray one to see if it is time to let go! Maybe I need to keep my hair the way it is and focus on changing something else. I have been researching chicken necks, so if I find a way to get rid of (or hide) mine, I'll give a full report.
Guy would say, "You need a job!"
Carol's most recent book, based on a true story, The Case of the Missing Ring, is available through Amazon, both paperback and ebook. You can contact her at email@example.com.
