looking beyond…

my beloved little ballerina

she has been spinning for decades ~

a colorful history

full of good


some bad.



she is not ~

a few blemishes here,

a crack there.


yes, she is old


her beauty is fading,


can you see beyond her flaws?

can you accept who she is


the imperfections


embody the woman you see?



in spite of a crack, i only see  perfection

      one likes to believe this is true – i did not use to believe it, but i have become a believer. (i sound like i am about to sing a Monkees song!)

        I’m a believer, beauty starts inside….I know you had a Davey Jones poster growing up 😉

        OMG – my friends loved Davey – I liked….(drumroll….) Mickey! I adored Mickey. I was going to marry him and have little Monkees…..Mickey was my fave. i am thinking it was his curly locks…

        Hahaha 😀 I liked Mickey because he was the funny one, then Mike because of the hat, lol…..you can always dress the Pees like The Monkees for Halloween 😀

    Why yes, yes I can. 🙂 And now thanks to you – I’m going to stop looking at my own cracks and imperfections and just see the perfection. Great expression Kimberly – and I love your use of the music box to share it. ❤ The "other" Kimberly 😀
