Remember? Beaded moccasins, suede fringe, burned leather bracelets with a snap, those elephant bell bottoms that covered your entire foot and reached to the floor or else they were considered high-waters. And to this day, I still feel a tad bit uncomfortable when I have to wear white socks.
Back in the 70’s, I wore a mood ring, as well as the snap bracelet and a peace-sign medallion on a leather cord (that I wish I’d kept). But even though my hand looked pretty cool with it on, the ring and evidently my mood were always dark because my hands were so cold.
Many, many years later, I find a new mood ring in my Christmas stocking, with a peace sign no less. And thanks to my alternating hot flashes and chills, I’m happy to report that the ring and I enjoy a revolving rainbow of moods.
It’s the only time I can truly appreciate menopause.
This month I’m taking a photo a day and following the topics of Susannah Conway’s August Break 2014. And why don’t you join me? I double-dog dare you!
