“Life is like a new hat. You don’t know if it suits you if you keep trying it on in  front of your own mirror.”  Shirley McLaine.

This is such a delightful quote from such a free spirited personality.   I adore it and only hope that I can move through life each day with a new hat perched upon my head.  Living life and sharing life is a gift received and passed on to others.  Today, time is the most cherished and sought after luxury in the world.  Have you ever thought about where all that time you didn’t know what to do with while growing up went?  Hopefully, it wasn’t wasted standing in front of your own mirror!  As I look forward to my future decades and think of ways to wear new hats, I wonder if when the circle is complete I will again reflect on what to do with all the time on my hands.  Only time and hats will tell.

This is one of the results from a live model session using vine charcoal and various paper, paint and embellishments.   Collages are so much fun and just like real life – made up of bits and pieces gathered from here and there.

I wonder if the British wear hats to shield their heads from the drizzle or is it because they live life to the fullest and don’t let the rain dampen their spirit.
