Be an orginal

Recently, a friend sent me an old interview that screen icon Mae West did with Dick Cavett back in the 1970s. Not many people these days know that Mae West was an early health enthusiast. That was the secret of her longevity. She was also the writer and architect of her fabulous career, as well as a stunningly original woman. Here is a very original poem she wrote at age 15:
 
I got my smile from the sunshine.
I got my tears from the rain.
I learned to dance when I saw a tiger prance,
And a peacock taught me to be vain.
A little owl in a tree so high,Mae West 1933
He taught me how to wink my eye.
I learned to bill and coo from a turtledove.
And a grizzly bear taught me how to hug.
But the guy who lived two caves from me,
He taught me how to love.
 
So darlings take a note from Mae West; be an original. Glory in your own unique beauty.
