Day 3/365

Day 3: 1/3/19

 

I don’t know if Madonna writes her own Instagram captions, but I like to think that she does. Let me live my fantasy; I am a product of the 1980’s. When I say that, I mean I am a product of MTV.

I am a product of Madonna’s LIke a Virgin, Springsteen’s Born in the USA, Prince’s Purple Rain, and John Cougar Mellencamp’s Scarecrow stuff.

I’m Thriller, red bandanas, neon bracelets up my wrist, and some Joan Jett thrown in for good measure.

I’m Pat Benatar and Alice Cooper with a hint of Van Morrison.

 

Anyhow, enough about me…let’s get back to Madonna. Who, can I please remind you, is SIXTY years old this year.

She posted something on Instagram the other day which caused me to stop what I was doing and reflect.

I will share it here:

 

“2019……….

I’m going to make you my best friend, my mother, my father, my son, my daughter, my sister, my  brother, my lover, my ride or die, my co-pilot, my confidante, my muse, my spirit animal, my teacher, my stage, my audience, my high priestess. My Queen, My Warrior, My Word, My Prayer that I send out to the world!”

 

Now, probably everyone who reads that will have a different reaction, a different takeaway, a different emotional response.

And that, is success.

 

As I write this, I am working on procuring a guitar.

There are so many words that are welling up inside me that need to come out…sooner than later!

 

Also, as I reflect on the names I have mentioned and the records I used to have…I am forced to disclose that one of the most inspiring traits that I perceive in many artists that remain relevant over the decades is that they always keep their sex appeal.

It may be to a different generation, but these people never relinquish that magnetic energy.

 

As you know, I am a human having a VERY physical experience. A soul much entwined in the body. A woman who loves sex.

 

{I have now deleted many sentences. Many times. I’m wondering how PG-13 I should keep this}

 

Whew…ok…um, moving forward…I’m actively deciding what these 365 days of posts will entail. Pseudonyms of course will be used…but how much is “appropriate” to disclose?

God, I hate being appropriate. It just spoils all the fun.

 

But, we have many more days together here…I will wait to hear feedback (if any) on the subject of sex.

 

I understand that as Americans we tend to be Puritanical in our dogma and slutty in our darkened private hours.

We are “christian” and we also cheat.

We are typically dichotomies.

 

And I’m just not willing to go there.

 

I know that my 2019, as my best friend, my mother, my father, my son, my daughter, my sister, my  brother, my lover, my ride or die, my co-pilot, my confidante, my muse, my spirit animal, my teacher, my stage, my audience, my high priestess. My Queen, My Warrior, My Word, My Prayer …

Will at times be spent naked, lights on, exploring.

And at other times…

Cocooned, pitch black, introspective.

 

I’m so ready.

So open.

So alive.
