2021 in Pisticci….After 2 glasses of wine….

I always write this before drinking more than half a glass of wine, but today I’ve been out with friends , had a lovely time and drank 2 glasses of wine.

I feel quite sensible….but who knows.

Today I was thinking a lot about role models and how it has been important to me to have older women I could look up to.

I have a collection of them. Some of them because I admire what they do and I want to do similar things, some because they wear red lipstick and fun clothes and some because they have reinvented themselves  and started new careers in their 70s.

I think that because my mum died when she was 64 and I spent a lot of my life trying to be as capable as her, then I am a bit lost now that I have lived longer than her.

And my life is so very different from what I expected. So much more exciting and interesting.

There are so many things I would like to do and that is when I look at my role models and think if they can do it, then maybe so can I.

Today I painted a lovely white flower which is now scenting my room. I finished yesterday’s painting and started a seascape. It has been very hot again.

And now am back home wondering if I should have a third glass of wine…..

Cheers 🍷

Work in progress.
