A colossal fashion faux pas...

Unless you're at the Prada equivalent of a blue light special, most shoppers believe that “you get what you pay for”. However, Sarah Palin ’s new wardrobe has given her much more. Her new clothes not only reveal her style, but also reveal the fallacy of the Republican platform.

My Quest for a "Big" Life...

Image
Because of some recent blog entries, people have asked me whether I am seeking my own “ Mr. Big ”. That is a reasonable question. However, it is a misguided one. Unlike Carrie, I don’t crave "Mr. Big". Instead, I crave a " Big " life. What I crave most is a life that defies gravity and convention. I crave a life that brings me happiness and satisfaction. I crave a life that feeds my soul and fills me with passion. I love men. And I believe that the right man will enhance my life. Like salt, he will add flavor to those things that I already enjoy. However, he won't complete me. I’m no superwoman or raging feminist. I am just a woman who has learned that life is wonderful for its own sake. Still, I shall continue to write about tales of men and romantic adventures. Romance is fun. The optimist in me believes that I shall meet the man who will end my quest. In the meantime, I shall enjoy the journey. If my Mr. Big comes knocking, I'

Discovering what it all really means...

Life is a process of becoming, a combination of states we have to go through. Where people fail is that they wish to elect a state and remain in it. This is a kind of death. -- Anais Nin The amazing thing about life is that if you are open to it, adventures teach you amazing things. In July, I wrote about my adventure in San Francisco . People have read lots of things into what I meant by that entry. However, what happened isn’t as important as the lesson. San Francisco taught me to accept life as it comes and to be present in the moment. Unfortunately, I have been unfaithful to the San Francisco lesson. I have fallen back into over analyzing situations. Truthfully, I spend more time in my head than I do interacting with those around me. It is hard to be completely engaged when you’re looking for the next blog entry. It is as if you are an observer in your own life. I cannot blame the blog though. I started it because I was already distracted. Recently, I have realized that

Sometimes a kiss is just a kiss...

I had an interesting conversation about kissing awhile ago. My date believed that kisses on the lips should be restricted to lovers. He was a little shocked when I told him that on occasion I kiss some of my male friends on the lips. He assumed that my relationships with these friends must be more than friendly. However, he was wrong. To be clear, I don’t kiss all of my male friends this way, only those with whom I am very close. And, I don’t kiss them on the mouth all of the time. However, on occasion, my dearest friends and I have exchanged a kiss on the mouth and/or held hands. We have never confused these gestures with romance because we recognize that there is a difference between what we do and what lovers do. Our friendship kisses are endearing rather than enticing. They are pecks without tongue or titillation. Simply put, they are sweet and innocent. My date objected to my behavior. While I heard his objections, it is unlikely that I will change my practi

I'll be back soon!

I have been neglecting this blog. Life has been distracting me so much that I haven't have time to share. During this time, I have experienced love, disappointment, and success. In a word, I have been living! I don't have time to discuss the above in detail, but don't worry. Soon, I will be updating you about all that has been happening in Chaton's World. Until then, take care, and don't do anything that I wouldn't do... :-) Related articles Diane Mizota and Chaton Turner chat at the BlogHer'12 Conference (chatonsworld.blogspot.com)
