Bad Hair Blessings
By Don Iannone

Bad hair is no excuse for a bad day.
Instead it speaks to the wild beast within you.
You know...that untamed nature
you've worked so hard to tame
with little to no success.
Your wild hair reflects your true nature.
Steppenwolf said it in their 1968 song:
Like a true nature's child...We were born, born to be wild.
Your wild hair is a special sign...from God
that you are an exceptionally strong person
who can handle big life challenges.
Why else would you be afflicted with this curse?
On the other hand,
should you decide that your hair condition is fatal,
consider all the bald people out there,
who wish they warranted a shiny new hair brush
in their Christmas stocking this year.

jel...thanks! I did have my cup of coffee...and it helped to tame my spirit a little.

The alarm was REALLY a sign that I needed to pay special attention...yesterday was a very special day...filled with synchronicities and powerful connections with others. Amazing, huh?

Feeling a little "wooly-booly" are we?? I feel sorry for bald people, but they can't have my hair brush!! Good read this morning!!

Smiling- Your post from yesterday inspired me to reconsider writing about my own wild hair stories, but no time as yet.
When I do, I already planned on linking back to your hair. ;)

Ha! Don....I choose to shave my head. Although I invented the mullet in 1970 (all business in the front and party in the back) I decided to shave it all off several years back. A good head yearns to be shown!!!

Thanks everyone for your comments. Glad a little hair humor hit the spot. Best wishes.

You cover quite a range of subjects on this blog!

Incidentally someone described my wild hairstyle (I cut it myself) as "musician's licence".

LOL -- you can blame my bad hair on my genes. I've got the "Jewfro."
