‘Ain’t Nobody’s Business

Everything is funny as long as it happens

to somebody else.

Will Rogers

Flower on Hair by Sharon Birke www.PowerfulGoddess.com

Billie Holiday’s signature gardenias in the hair inspired this Goddess’ portraits.  (I, too, had a thing for pretty flowers in my hair until the big hair chop.)  Lady Day’s classic tunes include “Good Morning Heartache,” “What A Little Moonlight Can Do,” and “Ain’t Nobody’s Business If I Do.”   While her love affairs were numerous and complicated, pain and loss inspired her song writing–plus strength of character grown from not being beholden to another:

There ain’t nothing I can’t do

or nothing I can say

that folks don’t criticize me.

But I’m going to do

just as I want to anyway

And don’t care just what people say.

If I should take a notion

to jump into the ocean

Ain’t nobody’s business if I do.

If I go to church on Sunday

then cabaret all day on Monday

Ain’t nobody’s business if I do.

    There are two truly classic personalty’s mentioned here, Billy Holiday and Will Rogers. The way Billy sings the classics like “Body and Soul” and so many others, an amazing talent.

    I love a flower in a woman’s hair. I think it brings beauty to the flower as pictured here with this Goddess. The textures of this Goddess’s’ dress stands out with the way you filtered or adjusted the color…beautiful, Sharky!

    Knowing what is right for me, is just simply a feeling.

      I’ll have to listen to that song “Body and Soul”–
      And thank you for the introduction to Will Rogers, Mountain!
