Natty is a very old word
And clearly not often heard
It mans chic elegant snazzy
Nothing here that’s trashy
Coiffed to perfection
In the latest collection
Clean tidy well put together
Completely lovely, altogether
Pressures gone, we are at peace
We realize we can now cease
Running the merry-go-round of perfection
Without a sense of self or direction
Perfection sought does not exist
A bill of goods sold, yet still persists
Young girls and young women alike
Against this ideology we must strike
None are good enough they would have you believe
We must see beyond the glare and gloss to perceive
We are perfect as we are
In each of us a blazing star
Now our young men they objectify
The onslaught a price too high
Without that trademark six pack or buns of steal
You are no longer good enough, no sex appeal
Pay it forward for all to see
How detrimental this is, my plea
Take back our youth their lives be free
To live without angst but with dignity.
I’m forever astounded and awed by everything fragile, whether it is a delicate paper thin wineglass, a butterfly, or a vulnerable flower tossed about in a gentle breeze. Even frost on the windowpane, it’s exquisite pattern captures attention for it will not stay long.
We race headlong through days weeks months years, barely noticing the passage of time and how fragile a moment can be. Often taking for granted these ephemeral things, perhaps noting, but not fully appreciating the delicacy intricacy and perfection offered.
Often, we fail to acknowledge the beautiful amazing design of our own human form, so incredibly strong yet astoundingly vulnerable. Constantly pushing the limits of what the human body is capable of, yet conversely, in the twinkling of an eye, it can all be gone. Perhaps it is only with the passing of age, dare I say wisdom? we begin to appreciate and understand how finite we truly are.
Most precious of all is family, comprised of special, delicate, invaluable fragile individuals to be loved, enjoyed, cherished.
We’ve certainly come a long way since the phrase “Let them eat cake” was uttered, supposedly by Marie Antoinette, but that’s another story.
Dare I say it? We love cake! Every shape, design color, flavour! Whether it’s a personalized wedding cake, birthday celebration, Passover, Christmas, we celebrate with cake. Worldwide, we announce events with great aplomb; whether someone jumps out of the middle of it or it’s set center stage, the unveiling eagerly awaited, we love cake.
What was once upon a time a simple pastry now offers a complex variety around the world
Personally, I am astounded at the creativity, intricacy, size, even shape that some cake designers offer. For awhile I watched a cake-maker and designer, from Hoboken. The show was called “The Cake Boss”. Personally I’d call him an artist! For the sheer intricacy scale and perfection he created was both astounding and mouthwatering.
I used to go great lengths when a school event required a cake sale to raise money, and I created some pretty awesome designs from ladybugs to guitars to whatever the event’s theme was. What an absolute delight!
I honestly enjoyed the creation more than eating it, unless of course, being the self professed cream cheese=aholic that I am, it’s a cream cheese cake, well it didn’t stand a chance!
Once upon a time a cake was created
Soft and moist its flavour long awaited
Oh you Devil you
No Angel Food!
But I am a Princess pure and divine
Upside down cake, you are mine!
Black Forest scrumptious and sweet
Red Velvet that’s what I shall create
Whatever flavour shall I make
Perhaps several I should bake!
Christmas, Birthday, Wedding Cake so fine
Whatever the occasion cake is sublime!
