Thoughts, theories, ideas perhaps on and about how to make a happy and peaceful life ☮ this category is about thoughts. Please note that I believe in the freedom of speech, as an essential ingredient of democracy, a resistance to tyranny and can be an important agent towards improvements.

I love that I eventually worked out how something is done and what obvious traditional prop is involved etc… It has taken me hours, but that now I know, I couldn’t possibly tell anyone, because I want to use the same prop and do the same thing to amaze an audience and make them go “Ooooo”. The world is a stage and all those in the cast and the audience are in need of peaceful, natural and happy things.
People buy new stuff and then dump it (rinse and repeat). A lot of stuff doesn’t ever go away. A lot of it can be used or repurposed or recycled. Yet it gets dumped and the land fills with what could have been, and the land fills with what could have been, and the landfills are unseen, and the land fills with what could have been (rinse and repeat).
The proceeds of wants, while haves and little greeds,
So you may ask “What is a capsule wardrobe Bexy?” and my rough answer is:
Just the right amount of clothes (whatever you think need & have space for).
Things you love to wear in your style and colour choice.
Things that go together to mix & matchincluding shoes and scarfs.
Take absolutely everything out of your wardrobe, your draws etc… and plonk it on your bed (at this point you might panic, so move swiftly onto number 2).
Go an put the kettle on, make some nice fruity tea, drink tea, come back to the room as soon as you are calm again, preferably within the same day.
Place those items you’ll NEVER ~ EVER want to wear again into a Red Cross donation bag (even the raggity ones, because they will not be wasted, but go for rags and make money for the charity too).
Assess what’s left and see if you have a style of things you love wearing and put them back (there might be some that need to go under the bed just in case you think you might want them later, including repeats of the same top).
Put clothes you want to upcycle into a separate place, safe, but NOT into your wardrobe.
You might at some point want to weed out colours that don’t make you feel happy.
People are not dolls, you don’t have to match your clothes, but take note that the truth be told and it is that the majority of sheepeople take a lot at face value.
Please don’t be a sheepeople and judge others by what they wear.
My life has and is blessed by knowing folks from the gypsy and traveller community, just as it has been blessed by those associated with other communities.
We are not separate from each other due to labels given us or ones we give ourselves. We are parts of the same.
The possibility to do good and other possibilities are in us all. It is a beautiful and sometimes courageous thing to build on the good under fire and encourage others in the direction of peace.
My mind can hear that loud cry “Any i’er, any i’er, any rag bone?” “Any i’er, any i’er, any rag bone?” from one of the kindest, most thoughtful person who helped me out during a very difficult time. I also recall many other gypsy folks with things to help in their bags, things to bless in their pockets and the fella that sharpened mothers scissors, the knife grinder. I feel we have to keep the choices open, safe and help each other to be ourselves.
