Hi all....
I know I'm basically a Lurker around here so I hope everyone will
still accommodate my little rant.

Henna is the thing in my life that quiets my soul. When everything
else is making life difficult I can always pull out my henna. I sit
and enjoy the smell of the oils, relax and listen to the quiet of
being alone with it.
Lately life has been pretty loud and rowdy. Nothing that I can't
handle but.... The last set of designs I did on my hand and foot
have been generating quite a reaction. My friends and my husband
think it's a decent Moroccan design. So it's not the quality of the
actual design. I'm just getting the good old reaction of "What did
you do to your hand!". So I explain and then I get "Why would you
want to do that?!?". I also got, "It looks like a truck ran over
your foot!!". <sigh> I know the people who made these comments are
kings of tact (not!) and I shouldn't take it personally. But with
everything that's been going on lately at work and home it would be
nice if people didn't have to be so harsh to my saving grace.
Anyone have a snappy come back for those people with such a flair for
diplomacy? I know they're not really worth the effort. But just
once I'd like to throw Karma to the wind and say something!

Thanks, Michele
