What is your stance on ringer tees?

Gillian daSilva

Ringers are fine (had to Google it), I'd wear one but I'd rip the neck out first. Comfort. Can't wear turtle necks either. But ringers are cute. :)
Your stance would be...?


Hi Gillian,
I think this girl is beautiful. She likes to be comfortable. She likes to look unique. She likes how a t shirt can take on a life of it's own. She is a deep thinker. Since sleep is more important for happiness,
she knows this and will find her way!!
How can I tell? I just can.

Thank you dear girl for empathizing with my need for sleep. But I have this mouse that has become an appendage and is hard for me to let go of. I find it relaxing actually. I'll get there. When I do, there is a whack of Pablo's poetry that will ensure I drift into a deep fog :)
Your friendship is golden. We need a phone call soon. xo

I would ask this girl what deeply rooted issues she has with collars. Was she attacked by a pack of wild, rabid collars early in her life? Are there deep emotional issues that need to be addressed?

Then I would tell to enjoy her tea black, the way tea is meant to be taken, curl up with some very light reading (I am in a Terry Pratchett phase right now and would heartily recommend Soul Music), and hug those around you that deserve your love and affection. Avoid those that do not.

I could add that maybe this girl thinks too much but, then again, I love to read her musings and thoughts as she shares them. Sit back and bask in the glory that is the world you have built around yourself. i am so glad to be a small part of that world again.

Ever since I had neck surgery, I can't take having anything that feels constricting near my neck! I, too, cut the necks out of my t-shirts :D


I would say how interesting, because she is wearing a necklace, and doesn't that bother her? doesn't it just make her crazy? because I cannot stand necklaces - I feel them against me and cannot ignore them and am jealous of all the fabulous necklaces I see out there in the world. I would tell her to youtube up Craig Ferguson and enjoy - look for videos of show openings with puppets and songs, and you will laugh and maybe dance along with him. You will see. :)


I'd say this girl needs a great book and an hour or two alone with quiet music and a cup of tea. Let me know if you need any recommendations.


I would say that this girl inspires me with her blog...has reminded me about the value and life-giving breath of creativity...makes me want to try photography...and shocks me with how beautiful you can make traditionally mundane things like-toast and peanut butter and tomatoes- seem. You have challenged me to see beauty and worth in the 'every day' and I thank you and encourage you to continue :)


i'll tell her to go ahead n cut my tees too :) n thn i'll hug her n say dat i love her too :)

What can I say?
Your comment has made my entire morning. When you walked into the spa with your gift I was speechless at how this person I have known since we were children and I reconnected via this social networking. To think people shun this. Blows the mind.
You are an articulate, creative and caring human being it is ME that is glad to have you back. You are a unique and beautiful human being Steven!!! xoxo

Aloha beautiful-
I have a thing about not wanting to be strangled. Haha!!! I am weird with necks, and like mine to breathe free and easy. :D

gillian from the sweet indigo life~~~~

I must wear necklaces. They must be loose, not to close to the neck. They are long, usually falling mid chest area. I feel naked without a necklace.
Going to YT Craig Ferguson right now...thank you. xo!

gillian from the sweet indigo life~~~~

Yes, I do. I have some books to read. I'll do just that tonight.

gillian from the sweet indigo life~~~~

You should try photography...it is such a rewarding creative outlet. We all have our unique perspectives to share with the world. I saw your BEAUTIFUL sister today...she is so pretty it is outrageous!!! Love her! So I know, I have an inside scoop on you, that there is a culinary school in your future in which you are going to be doing some BAKING. Oh yes, now THAT is what you should be shooting with a camera, baked goods. :D
Tanya thank you for visiting me...and your comment is encouragement enough for me to keep blogging.
I'll be by to visit you today!! xox mwah!

gillian from the sweet indigo life~~~~

Adi thank you...if you weren't in India I would cut your tees for you! Love you right back my friend.xoxo HUGS


My advice is to slow down, breathe softly and deeply, help someone near, soak in the beauty around you, take time to do nothing, really nothing, be grateful that all is well and will be well, no matter what.


I would tell her how beautifully soft her expression is, how "tired" is how we're meant to feel when we lived a day well, how I love the "necks cut out of T-shirts" look. I would say, one lump or two or Tea, Earl Grey hot! thanks for the invitation. :-)


i would ask this girl where she gets these consistently beautiful thoughts from?
i would ask her to share the secret of sharing such goodness?
i would ask her how does she give out such peacefulness and calmness thats felt through blogosphere?



I'd say, It's not about the shirt, it is? I mean not really. I think it's about "comfort." It's fall and the days are shorter. It's a quiet time before winter and now we settle in and find that place. You know, that warm, comfortable place. I mean, that's what I would tell this girl with the cup of tea.

First...Instead of tea..let's have some vino. Hey..why do you cut the neck out of your TeeS? Let's invite Sheila over too. Do you have any cupcakes? Let's make some and the girlies can help. Put some Gypsy music on and we can all dance and howl at the moon, I''m just being me..if i were at your house.

I tell this beautiful girl to get her strongest version of black Turkish tea ready to brew...it will go so very sweetly with her forthcoming rose-flavored Turkish Delight. ;)

Niagara On The Lake in November?? I think it is a must.


Gillian daSilva

I agree Shelagh. Nothing is best. xo

Gillian daSilva

one lump Suv. thanks shugs xoxo

Gillian daSilva

I'm motivated purely by the intention of making the world well.
Nothing else. xo

Gillian daSilva

thank you Dina. It is about finding my place. Isn't that what we are all seeking? xo

Gillian daSilva

If you were at my house, things would be funnier, and more lively, no doubt. Pam, you are a treasure. Worth your weight in gold. xo

Gillian daSilva

Oh there is much to discuss.
I'm proud of you.
You dream chaser you.

Perhaps you could show me the way. xox


I'd like to tell her that she makes a difference with her in the lives of all she touches. That she is an excellent mother and that her photography has grown exponentially by leaps and bounds. I'd like to tell her that she is beautiful, inside and out.
