What woman would you nominating for The Honey & the Star award? No doubt you’ve several in mind. Tell us a little about those special women – we can’t wait to read about them!
The Honey & the Star
Do ya wanna hear a picture of a walking inspiration?
She’s an open invitation to a heart that needs to love
She makes you sing and smile. She’s a honey, free and wild
She’s the warmest lady, aunty, grandma, mother, loyal friend
She’s all around the country – her home is everywhere
She has a place for everyone. Everyone has a place for her
She wraps her arms around you, you never want to leave
Her belly laugh is so relaxed, her life a summer breeze
Yes, lovely lady, I’m talking about you
Singing all your praises – the country, it should too
And give you a medal – how wonderful you are!
In my honours list you’ve won The Honey & The Star
Friends, she’s got a certain style – it’s sort of ‘universal’
You know when she’s around coz there’s a smile everywhere
I cannot put my finger on what it is about her
It’s a privilege to know her – it’s a buzz to have her near
Yes, lovely lady …
She has so much to teach you that you cannot find in writing
And you feel she is inviting you to a party or to tea
She’s clear & quite uncluttered – though her list is overflowing
That reminds me, time is going. It’s another new year’s eve
Well if this song is pretty it is just a spark of her beauty
Such an awesome woman – a treasure I have found
Her love will shine forever. Take a moment to remember
To express a little thank you – she won’t always be around

It’s that time of the year when we all start clowning around in celebratory mood, sending each other cards & wishes, and stocking up the pantry with all sorts of goodies (and badies!). Bars and restaurants boom with end-of-year work functions, and life just speeds up … Perhaps we’ll reach a velocity where Woody’s wishes will come true? Thanks Louise for emailing me this with your smiles for the silly-season. I pass them on to all my blog-reading friends – look forward to seeing you all in the ultimate BOOM – the big bang!

Dunno ’bout you, but remembering how much I forget things, I remembered to write a song about forgetting. We don’t have ‘senior moments’ do we! – Nah! It’s the world that’s the problem – too fast a pace. With our social networks expanding to global proportions, how can we be expected to remember everyones’ name? – let alone where we put our glasses …
I Won’t Forget You
© Radha Sahar, September 2009
I forgot my list. I forgot my phone
So I can’t call & tell you I’ll be late comin’ home
I forgot and locked my keys in the car
I know I’m crazy, but there you are …
I forgot Mark’s birthday, forgot his wife’s name
I’ve known them for years – how could I? Shame!
I forgot my password – don’t have a clue
But I tell ya baby – I won’t forget you
You’re in my mind, you are all I see
You’re in my heart, you’re a part of me
You’re stored in my aura
I love ya through and through
I won’t forget you
I forgot the stove was still on high
The meal’s burnt – hope it’s not on fire!
I forgot the time. It worries me, true
But I tell ya baby – I won’t forget you
You forgot our anniversary – that’s hard to forget
My memory’s selective I suppose, and yet
I forgot to forgive you – when push comes to shove
I’ll forget I forgot, so don’t worry love
I forgot the shopping, honey, then at dinner
I forgot my resolve – let’s forget being thinner!
Let’s forget to remember all the things we have to do
As I show you baby how I won’t forget you

About time I posted some of my song lyrics, eh …
Here’s one I wrote after recovering from shock at being asked at the ticket-booth, “Are you a senior?” That life-changing experience was in the merry month of May… I’m totally keeping on top of re-henna-ing my hair since then and luckily no one has dared ask me that question again!
R u a Senior?
© 2009, Radha Sahar
Got a new outfit – hotpants and tights
My honey says “You look sexy tonight”
We go to the movies – high, on a roll
The ticket-booth girl thinks I’m not a young doll
“R U a Senior?” Hell – what a shock!
Maybe I am, and maybe I’m not
Am I a Senior? Is she deranged?
I’m thirty inside! There’s no way I’ve changed!
I must’ve looked pale. I almost dropped dead
I couldn’t believe what that ticket-girl said
She was just being kind as a discount applied
But not enough to restore my pride
R U a Senior? I can’t believe
I look like a pensioner! I am so peeved
My man sees me flinch. I’m tense, on my guard
He graciously flashes the requisite card
The discount placates me – a bit of a laugh
But really, these places should train all their staff
To protect people’s egos. ‘Adult’ sounds right
Identify Seniors by card, not by sight
R U a Senior? Runs through my head
A mind-numbing mantra – a question I dread
Am I a Senior seniỏr, or a girl?
I’ll happily settle for the best of both worlds:
A playfully cheeky, eccentric, young crank
One you cannot cross, coz she can pull rank!
