Billie Holiday Meditation

You've got to have something to eat and a little love in your life before you can hold still for any damn body's sermon on how to behave.

--  Billie Holiday (1915-1959)

"Woman with Blue Hair," a chalk pastel drawing by am from the early 1980s.

Thanks to Anu Garg for the inspiration.

Thank you for that quote right now. I have been ignoring the niggling voice in my head for too long this morning. It keeps on saying: stop, some tea and toast first....
Have a good day!

'... something to eat and a little love in your life...' I'd be content with that.

“Don't threaten me with love, baby. Let's just go walking in the rain.”
