Dear Friends,

I had a conversation today with a friend about women’s body hair. She has stopped shaving but was feeling a little shy still about showing her armpit hair. Tomorrow she said she will be braver and wear a tank top. I am just glad she is doing what she wants.

I don’t have an opinion on whether women should or shouldn’t shave their body hair. There is one main reason that I have not shaved for over 20 years. Low maintenance! I don’t enjoy the grow back prickle that happens within a day; I don’t like the sticky feel of my skin after shaving and it simply takes up a lot of time.

I pamper my body in many ways but not with shaving or make up or doing my hair. I dry brush, I put on coconut oil infused with lavendar or rose oil, I tell my body I love it. I have not shaved my body hair in so many years that I forget that I look different than other women in the U.S.A. I just want around unknowingly flaunting my lovely body hair. It’s good though, I walk my own calling and my life is rich. I love nature and I love my body being natural and I am grateful for hair.

I appreciate fruit festivals.

I appreciate watermelon.

I appreciate meeting new people.

I appreciate my truck.

I appreciate deep breaths.

I appreciate handstands.

Thank you for being part of my life.

I appreciate you!

Sleepily yours,
