Party of the Year!

I want to tell you about one of the Best Parties in Boston.  Each year about this time the organization Helping Hands Monkey Helpers throws their fund raiser. It’s truly fabulous. The food featured is by some of the best chefs/restaurants in Boston. They all get together to participate in what has become one of the stellar events this city has to offer.

Ever since I met David Sedaris (yes, the David Sedaris) at one of their events, I have been a volunteer. I can walk, and move about all day long any way I’d like. But there are those who are confined to a wheel-chair or disabled with spinal cord injuries. These monkey helpers (actual capuchin monkeys) make a difference in their lives. The lovely little creatures help them with daily activities like opening doors, switching the lights off and on, and even turning the pages of a book. I feel supporting this organization is a good thing to do. And the money raised goes to sending the Monkey’s to the Monkey College so they can learn how to help their recipients.
This Saturday September 28th is the event. It runs from 6-9 at the WGBH Studios.  You might see some of Boston’s best party people while enjoying live music and a superb a wine tasting bar and spirited cocktails! It’s quite a scene.
Please join us. I promise you will have a wonderful evening. And, as you stroll about the event you will be helping those who can’t.

Just hit the link below for more info. And, if you already have plans you can still contribute and participate in the live auction. You won’t believe how much fun some of the items are. Take a peek now and see for yourself. Thank you in advance for those of you who can make it and to those of you who contribute online.

My baby grandniece I call Pipsqueak
There is no greater feeling on earth or in the Universe than L-O-V-E!  When you love someone it takes you outside of yourself. You are in a realm of wonder and of awe. You are in the ultimate state of being.
I would like to say here before the entire world, or at least the World Wide Web, that my greatest gift in life is my ability to LOVE! As a human being I am by no means perfect. But, I keep an open and flowing heart. I remain deeply grateful for my ability to continually give infinite amounts of love.
Because of this I can transcend many things…even loss, betrayal, blame. Love is like a pair of stilts. It literally takes you above it all. What a great place to be. Your view of the world is even better!
When you meditate, or just stop to breathe and pause, you can feel the love around you. It’s always there. That indomitable force all over the heavens, and earth, the galaxies and the solar systems is always present. We all are born with the ability to give and receive love. So, whomever and whatever you love, pay special attention to, by doing so you create even more love. It’s an infinite system and never runs out. We are lucky….we are living fully when we let love in and give it back. What else are we here for really?! Besides, as a perk….Natural highs are the best aren’t they?!
Looking at the picture above and below almost makes me ecstatic. I wholeheartedly adore my new baby grandniece and my late Great Aunty…..just two simple pictures flowing with the energy we call L-O-V-E! Its so good and so easy to spread.
And, nothing is more Ageless than being in alignment with all the good energy around us!
*Special Bonus for those who follow Ageless with Aunty....our precious, and now heavenly Aunty, keeps sending more and more love from above.....*
She says: Feel My Love Now!

Here's to an Endless Summer...

I tried rounding up the gang again for another night at Tanglewood. It was short notice so not everyone was available. One friend had to take her daughter back to college. Another friend was headed for Cape Cod. And, another had just left for California. But, of course I couldn’t let that stop me. It’s still summer and live music is my passion. I hadn’t seen Harry Connick Jr. before. And I knew Tanglewood, with its perfect acoustics would host him just fine. Two dear friends heeded the call and joined me. We packed the “Bliss Martini Mix” and headed west.  And now all I can say is what a night!

Can't you hear the magic...

cozy up before the show
We had our lawn party. And you haven’t lived until you spread a blanket out, open some wine, sit by loved ones, and are serenaded with live music! We sipped rose-petal  cocktails and munched on cheese and crackers. We raised our glasses to endless summer fun! Just as we settled in they announced a severe thunder storm was headed our way. No problem…I made a mad dash under the shed and managed to get three seats and enjoyed the show. Harry was sensational. What an entertainer. He really has heart.  He’s great on the eyes too. And, did I mention he can sing. I appreciated his big band and all the New Orleans music. He also crooned  some classics like The Way You Look Tonight and On a Clear Day.  One of my friends raved, “I am so glad you invited me. What a perfect summer night.”
I hope some of you reading this remember some of my posts about how much fun it is at Tanglewood.  It’s worth any effort to get there. I was in my glee…and so were my pals and everyone else who came out to see and hear Harry in the rain.
