June 19th World Sauntering Day

Another important day in our lives, World Sauntering Day! Sauntering is a casual, yet stylish, way to walk. The day was created by W.T. Rabe, a PR specialist, to a hotel on Mackinac Island in Michigan. He felt, as many do, that sauntering was the best way to get from point A to point B. To me, walking, running or any means of getting you to point B from point A works. The key is getting there. If sauntering makes you feel better about yourself, go for it! After all, isn’t ones saunter another ones waddle? The idea is not to fall down on the way, then you are crawling and that’s really not something any of us want to see.

How to celebrate – Saunter. Go for a walk. If you got it, flaunt it!

April 25th National East Meets West Day

So today we celebrate any two cultures that meet in the middle basically. We often think of the west and the United States, England, France… and the eat as Japan, China and Korea but you don;t really have to travel that far to meet different cultures and styles. Just use the United States as an example. Our East coast and our West Coast are markedly different from each other. These types of cultures often meet in a clash of competition in some way as well, whether it’s in a football game, food cook-off or even something as harsh as war. In the long run though we often find that people are the same everywhere. Even though there may be differences in what they eat, the way they talk or the clothes they wear, people all over the world have the same types of drive and desires as anywhere else. The only difference truly comes to be the method chosen on how to achieve what you want to end up with, which more often that not is the same thing.

How to celebrate – Compare the difference in the Western culture and Eastern culture. Think of all the countries that take the best of the East and the best of the West and combine them. Go to an East/West football game.

June 19th World Sauntering Day

So what is sauntering. It’s not running, it’s not strolling, it’s not jogging… it’s walking, but not exactly. It’s putting your life in stride and letting your walk follow. Some people use big steps, some small, some almost skip, but once you have begun sauntering, you’ll never go back.

It’s walking but with style and whether you are headed somewhere or just out for a stroll, it sets your gait to a beat, a beat inside your head that only you can hear. No two people saunter exactly alike and that’s the way it should be.

You can saunter by yourself, or with a crowd. You can saunter at the mall, school or even in church. It’s all in your frame of mind. It was started by W. T. Rabe on Mackinac Island. He was a Public Relations Director for a hotel back in the 1970’s. He created the day and his style of sauntering as a publicity stunt but it stuck.

You must be conscious of your sauntering until it comes as second nature to you. You need to look just as good walking away as you do approaching. And you never know who may be watching so you can’t let up.

And soon you will be sauntering without even knowing it. And you will be cool, whether you really are or not.

How to celebrate – Begin creating your own sauntering style. Try and figure little things you can do to make your saunter even more unique. Pick out your sauntering song and learn it well so it will never leave you.

October 14th Be Bald And Be Free Day

I suppose there are certain advantages to being bald. You don’t need a hairbrush, you don’t need shampoo, you don’t need conditioner, you don’t need a barber… okay well maybe every once in a while you do… but you probably will need a hat when it gets cold.

Be Bald and be Free Day was created by Thomas and Ruth Roy from Wellcat. I don’t know when or where and don’t care either! If you choose to be bald, or have a condition that causes you to go bald, do it.

Many men go bald as they age. I am sure there is a scientific reason for it, but they seem none the worse off for it. Some of them even look good!

It fits their character of rough and tumble and I assume to some it makes them sexy. Mr. Clean was always bald, maybe it shows cleanliness.  The newest rage is for women to go bald…

… and if what they are after is to look more like a man, then more power to them! I am sure they will attract women who  would otherwise find a bald man looking sexy. I think it is a true statement about today and society. So many men are trying desperately to be women and so many women are trying desperately to be a man. If we all went bald headed and wore baggy clothes no one would know what we were and maybe that would be a good thing. Even better, we could all be molded to have the same face and love each other because we are all human beings and have no attraction to anyone! Then we could live like dogs do, sniffing out each others scents so we knew what sex they were!.

And you now what, Hillary Clinton actually looks better bald! She sort of looks like one of those aliens from Mars on Saturday Night Live!

And Donald Trump looks a little more like a politician. Like the wise old sage.

So you know what… you want to be bald, this is a great opportunity for ya! it will certainly set you free… until it rains, or snows, or it’s cold, or the sun’s too bright, or the wind is blowing hard, or your on a construction site and have to wear one of those helmets, or when someone above you spits, or when there’s a bird overhead, or when you don’t want to shine in the moonlight, or when…

Ah, it’s your head. Do what you want.

How to celebrate – Cut all your hair off and see if you like it! Buy one of those fake bald head pieces and check yourself out as a bald person. Start chanting and move to a mountain retreat.
