FEARLESS FLYER...


THIS IS HOW I SEE MYSELF IN 2016

WHAT'S IN YOUR MIND?

For anyone with a dream and a goal you must start with a vision!
Then ask yourself can you see yourself there...?
I do.
And, this year I am taking it a step further and actually see myself getting there.
I am Flying!
I have tried so hard for so long and it has taken forever.
This time I am lighter, more at ease and allowing myself to be 
LESS DISTRACTED!
For 2016 I will keep it simple:
I am Asking, Believing, and this time Receiving...

The only difference from the picture above and the one in my mind is
in my mind's eye I am holding my product, the most wondrous product ever made!

I can promise all my faithful readers here at Ageless with Aunty
I will soon unveil my extraordinary work!
You will NOT be disappointed. As a matter of fact I predict
you will swoon with delight.
The lucky few who have seen what is up my sleeves have fallen under
its spell!
Design Conference Harvard University

All this hard work would explain why my postings have not been as frequent.
Playing real life Shark Tank (although I call it Angel Investing)
takes up a lot of time. I am now officially A Product Designer and Entrepreneur!
And, a Brave one at that. I am truly doing all this with sheer determination, passion, love,
and a cosmic vision...I am indeed the epitome of a bootstrapping solo.

So, come along with me! Create your vision and Take a leap of  Faith. Believe in yourself and cast FEAR aside.
IT's THE ONLY WAY TO ACHIEVE YOUR GOALS.
My promise to you is once you get started I can assure you it's not nearly as scary
as you thought it would be. Look at me smiling at Harvard of all places!!!
As it turns out All I had to do was show up believing...

I am searching for the credits for the photo at the top and will post

SLEIGH BELLS RING, ARE YOU LISTENING?

Bought for Aunty and Uncle D circa 1980's
 
I LOVE Christmas so much I just want to scream!!!  And, I all I want to do is share my joy for the season with you.  There truly is no better time of year to connect with loved ones and dear friends. There are so many ways to pause and reflect, and make the most of the holidays.
First of all just keep it simple. I am thrilled just to have a cup of Christmas Tea or Ho Ho Joe Christmas Coffee with my friends and neighbors. I make the time. It’s easy. Just take a deep breath and remember last year at this time when you got so overwhelmed and you promised yourself not to do it again. Well, here is your golden opportunity. So many of us rush, rush, rush, and for WHAT? The season is about giving and spreading joy. It’s about being happy and light at heart.  I think that is why I am so happy at Christmas time. I feel the rest of the world has an opportunity to feel like I do all the time. So, everyone is aligned, and it’s a spectacular feeling. Even those old Christmas Carols that you hear over and over and the cloves in my tea make me giddy! Not to mention tacos, pretzels, and gum drops on my friend's tree.
 Some festive suggestions: Stop by Partridge in a Bear Tree in Newburyport Mass. (And, they are having a grand opening for their second fabulous shop, complete with free champagne punch, at Pickering Wharf in Salem this Saturday, December 12th). It is a guaranteed delight! Tell Kevin Renee sent you.

Just take a look at this place. It is my favorite of favorites…. Partridge in a Bear Tree is so magical you may swoon upon entering…
Decorate your home with love.. For most of us this is easy and so much fun (once it’s done). Order some REAL, original Christmas Tea at Upton Tea. Then sit back and enjoy being home for the holidays….
Christmas inside and out

Custom Design your own Christmas Cards. I do this every year and it’s become a favorite tradition of mine.  Here is one with my beloved late Aunty from the year she passed into heaven. I signed it with love from Renee and her Angel Aunty!
Christmas Card 2011
 
Sleigh Rides, Strolls, and Horse and Buggy Rides are the best…. Bring your own soundtrack and create what my friends have come to call, “Real Life Movie Moments,” or “Renee-A-Pal-OOZA Christmas.”  

With just a tiny bit of effort and releasing your inner child, Christmas time can really be so much fun and a lot less stressful.  Just pay attention to how your pace yourself and make sure to take some time and a few deep breaths to relax and enjoy what Christmas is really is all about.  I promise you from my heart, you will be glad you did. You may not want to go as over the top as I do, but, rise to the occasion just a little bit and your spirits will go along with you! You might even try keeping that open-heartedness and generosity flowing year to year. NOW THAT IS TRULY AGELESS…
Bless us one and all. Amen!

NOVEMBER 18TH 2011, AND, PICTURES ONLY I CAN SEE...

A Love Bigger then the Universe

Please send out a prayer for me! Today, November,18th 2015, is four years since Aunty passed. I am missing her like the sand would miss the ocean. Those who have been following Ageless with Aunty know exactly what I am talking about. That face! Her heart! Her purity…and her LOVE!
I could cry forever (really and truly) BUT…. She wants me joyous and productive.

EVERY SINGLE NIGHT FOR THE LAST FOUR YEARS I HAVE LIT THE ETERNAL AUNTY CANDLE! I TALK WITH HER, SMILE, AND THEN GO TO SLEEP. Amen….


With love,
Renee Faith….


This is what I miss…
She even captured Santa's Heart

If I had them available, I would insert pictures here of Aunty holding me when I was just a newborn.
And, a picture of me holding Aunty while she was becoming an angel and entering 
heaven. Those flawless images help make me who I am. 
Today I have A 
Guardian Angel.

THANK YOU AUNTY.
We ALL MISS YOU

FOR NEW FOLLOWERS OF AGELESS WITH AUNTY
PLEASE SCROLL AROUND TO OLDER POSTS.
WE ARE TOLD YOU WILL BE DELIGHTED AND 
INSPIRED

A BETTER BEATLES FAN....

with Aaron Krerowicz 
Beatles Scholar

What do you do on a cold November, Tuesday evening?! Well, if you are lucky enough to live in an area where Aaron Krerowicz, will speak, then you get in your car and go!  Aaron is the only Full-Time Professional Beatles Scholar in the United States! And, he is utterly fabulous. What a night. This professional Beatles Scholar gave a multimedia presentation on the Beatles. If you are able to make one of his FREE events (the link to his site is below) you will walk away with an even deeper appreciation of the Fab Four, and become an ever better Beatles Fan! Among other things, Aaron analyzes their songs, lyric by lyric, note by note and it’s fascinating…

I shared with the audience my life long affinity for the Beatles which I am glad to say only grows stronger. (See my last post for proof). I told them about how I saw the Beatles live, as a child. And, more recently I was interviewed for a book about the Beatles called “Beatleness,” by Candy Leonard (another Beatles expert). It may sound crazy but, at this point, the Beatles are in my blood.

Author Candy Leonard

At last night’s event, this Beatles scholar told us more about Yoko (her name means child of the ocean) George Martin (he was the one who wanted a different drummer, other than Pete Best, for recordings), and Aaron even had some amazing audio clips of Beatles interviews. The Beatles made magic. They had chemistry and a charisma (aside from the music itself) that allowed them to stay together for a decade! Now, that music and the Beatles themselves are enduring and timeless. 


As enjoyable and informative as the evening was, the highlight was the Beatles Music. I still get chills when I hear certain songs. Some of Aaron’s favorite songs are For the Benefit of Mr. Kite, and I am the Walrus. Not my two favorites, but, full disclosure here; I have not really paid all that much attention to just how innovative the Beatles were musically.  I absolutely love THE MUSIC, but, I was always more caught up in the Beatlemania, even recently when I saw Ringo up close. I was in an actual frenzy!


A night with Aaron (highly recommended) will give you much more insight into the genius of the music and even more appreciation of this “once-in-a-lifetime cultural force!”

 Goo goo k’joob!

For all us millions of Beatles Fans, Aaron has a website and has written books on the Beatles and more. Just go to: http://www.aaronkrerowicz.com/ he will tell you anything you want to know about John, Paul, George, and Ringo. IMAGINE....Aaron very generously gives you a chance to become an even better Beatles Fan then you were the Night Before....

I am sure there are many, but, what is One of your favorite Beatles Song? I would love to know....
Mentioned right above, The Night Before is one of mine, and  I'm Happy Just to Dance with You....
