Betty Page was a Schizophrenic and liked 50 Shades of Grey?

Well, I just didn’t know a damn thing about Betty Page. (I thought I did?)  I grew up seeing pictures of her on the wall of my uncle Joe’s garage and my dad had one of those pens that took all of her clothes off when you picked it up to write.  He kept it hidden in his tool box, but I would play with it when he would send me to the garage to get a pair of pliers or a screwdriver.  I didn’t know that she was the original “50 Shades of Grey” either?  I had no idea she made bondage photos until I saw this documentary.  Wow, for the time, that sure took some moxie?

She was also her class Salutatorian!

Have you seen this documentary?  I think the whole thing is on YouTube?  If not, you should give it a whirl.  First of all, she was ornery as hell and I love a women like that!  She was also a healthy looking woman with a normal body!

Her story was empowering and sad at the same time, anybody that has ever had a horrible landlord can understand her attacking one…lol  But having to spend 10 years institutionalized in a mental hospital?  I supposed it was also because of her nervous breakdown and the schizophrenia, but 10 years?  She should have lashed out at her father, that man was disgusting which you’ll learn about in the film.  Maybe a psychologist would say her father was the person she was lashing out at in a way when she attacked her landlord?…..

She doesn’t show herself on the film because she wanted to be remembered the way she was in her pictures, but you’ll hear her aged voice narrating the film.  RIP Betty Page.

A soft place to fall…

If a person shares their dreams with you, don’t laugh at them or tell them it’s impossible. EVER. There is a reason that person felt safe enough with you to share their dream. A dream is the deepest part of a person’s heart and soul. A young man shared his dream with my friend and me this afternoon and now I can’t get him out of my mind. This was only the second time either of us had met him. What an honor it was to hear his goal.  It was as if we knew instantly what was happening, there were no words needed as we proceeded in unison to hold back our doubt.  We immediately unified our thoughts to encourage this young man and to uncover possibilities for him.  As I left, I wondered to myself what it was about us that allowed him to feel safe enough to share his dream.  I believe that every dream a persons carries is sacred.  Sometimes, there isn’t an adult at home to encourage you or build you up. I wondered if this might be the case with him.  I’ve seen teenagers express their dreams before, only to be laughed at by peers or told, “It just isn’t possible” by their parents.  I’ve known children with no encouragement at home whatsoever.  I’ve witnessed adults laugh at children and discourage them when they’ve expressed themselves.  I don’t ever want to be that person.  I want to live a life that radiates a feeling of safety that all dreamers will recognize. I want the people I meet to know that their dreams are safe in my care. I vow to return those dreams a little bit stronger and shinier than before they were given.  For some reason, all of this is making me think of that old song, “A soft place to fall” by Allison Moorer(Random, I know.):
