Lover of Life, Love & Sensuality. Optimist. Believer. Natural Beauty Advocate. Minimalist. Living life outside the box; where the magic happens.
Meet Bob & Linda Carey.
After Linda was diagnosed with breast cancer, Bob began taking beautiful but totally ridiculous photographs of himself in a pink tutu.
To me Bob is more of a man than any epic macho athletic manly man we seem to idolize today. His natural instinct and love to his wife led him to do the best thing one can do to a person who is struggling with a weak immune-system: Making her laugh.
It has been known by mental health experts for a long time that depression or sadness flattens the immune system along with all the other physical and mental functions. Anything that lifts the mood is on the side not only of the angels, but the doctor and the patient, quite literally.
So one can say that Bob’s a medicine man.
I am no advocate of chemo-therapy and I certainly don’t want to promote it with this post, but I do want to make you aware of how healing your actions can be to those around you.
Even if you have no money you can bring a smile to the face of those around you by doing something in service of them. I believe that sharing love will fill up your heart with even more love. Love is healing. Love nurtures. Love makes you and those around you alive.
You can purchase a calendar full of pictures of Bob in his pink tutu here. The proceeds benefit the Carey’s Foundation, which provides support to women diagnosed with breast cancer, survivors, and their family members.
