little dead pieces of me
fly off
and never have i felt so
! ! A L I V E ! !
as i do after a haircut -
weight of the world's  been
off of
my shoulders and the head feels
so light -

the feet hardly touch the ground
and i
f l o a t amongst the clouds in a
of utter hilarity -
you know,
i should do this more often.

(c) 2006, Karla Dorman.

THIS is how I feel everytime I hairWASH... perhaps I should do THAT more often??!!! Great picture to lift your words as well. In my current psychological/emotional state, I have decided to grow my short layers for the first time in about 10 years... a sure sign of middle age, trying to recapture what has been lost!! On the other hand, you maintain your youth, girl, and keep chopping away - not like Turner though: scary!! LOL K xx

Nothing like a good haircut, Karla. I know after I get mine cut, it feels like I lost two pounds!

Haircuts can make you light-headed especially if your hair was long before. I like this poem as it makes me reflect back to my last hair cut.
