I am a LOVER of all things a tad on the flamboyant side.
Notice I said ‘tad’ as if to qualify myself and allow some room for wiggle because I’m nothing if not a fence sitter and you all know that’s a lie.
I was recently at the Audubon Zoo and saw these beauties.
I do believe Life is only one round and we better be able to spread our wings, and if we don’t have any wings, or short wings, or wings that don’t flap strongly (which is okay) I hope we get scooped-up in the fly-by.
Some of my personal examples:
Turning up the music REAL loud when Ben is out of town and practicing my Janet Jackson headset-wearing bone-crushing moves OR my Barbra Streisand chiffon gown-single spotlight- gently holding mic with head-drawn-back stylings. Either way it works my inner Flamingo.
Lunch. With wine. And walking home giving directions to tourists.
Saying YES when someone asks me to be on Video.
Which is what happened when my friend, Chad Harris, (owner with his lovely wife Beth of the amazing GARDEN GATES), asked me to be his Episode 1, on a new series of New Orleans gardens he’s filming.
I’m ready for my close-up Mr. DeMille.
So, if your’e ever in the hood, and need a splash of seasonal color, of course, stop by their establishment…
BUT, even if you’re NOT in the Best City on Earth, you can still spread your wings and exercise your inner Flamingo, with a click and a swoosh (and a credit card) shopping their Lifestyle on-line stylings.
Tell them my Flamingo sent you.
