A few years ago, the receptionist brought a magazine to work called "MORE". It was the premier issue. The magazine is geared to women in their forties. Most of the modeling in the magazine is done by women in their "mature" stage of life. The articles also are concerned with issues that women in their forties and beyond are challanged with.
I was fanning the pages when one ad caught my eye (and heart!) A sensational looking, darling woman in a fly fishing outfit! I must confess that her stunning panoramic smile and blond curls flowing from her "fly fishing cap" were far too provocative for me. I got lost in her smile! I immediately cut the page out..."this is unbelievable" I uttered. "I have fished from coast to coast, on hundreds of piers,miles of streams and sandy beaches and I have never come across a woman with a fishing rod who is as magnificant as this! Suddenly, I felt alone....denied one of lifes sweetest fruits! "No More!" I exclaimed!
I handed the recptionsit the page that I had torn out (which had no ad copy written on it) and asked her if she would write the following with her feminine penmanship.
Hi Marc! Looks like we are having trout almondine for dinner. The wine is chilling....the table only needs your company!
The dragonfly lure that you bought me for our anniversary works just great!...You are so smart!!
See ya later sweetie! <3 Alexis <3
P.S. No peeking in the Victoria Secret bag! You'll just have to wait!!
I took the picture to my desk and quickly slipped it into a picture frame and placed it dead center on my desk! Where it remains to this day.
.......I have since learned that this "fly fishing beauty" is a former model for Estee Lauder in the early 70's......She made her fame and fortune and then walked away from it....moving to upstate NY where she opened a fly fishing school!!!!!!! her name is Karen Graham..she is real.
I heard a beggar call from his crutch...why..why ask for so much?
A woman called from her darkened door..why?..why not ask for more?
Like a bird, on a wire, like a drunk in a midnight choir
I have tried in my way to be free....Leonard Cohen
..One is never free from the beauty that warms their heart!....In that case....ask for More!
