Retreat from the Sun

IMG_9530 It’s official: this year has been terrible. I don’t think I’ve ever looked forward to a year ending like I am with 2015. Are there good years as you get older? The stakes are far bigger and your bones tend to ache more. I guess I’ll let you know someday.

Remember back when things felt kind of boring and repetitive and you were waiting for some sort of excitement? You should have enjoyed that—boring is good, boring is peaceful.

It’s a bit gloomy in here and Vivek took some pictures. Less gloomy posts coming up I PROMISE. Warning: No Vivek pics this time SOWEEEEEE.

Hi everyone,

Thanks for still tuning in. This site is run by a depressive which means enthusiasm can wane and motivation can completely disappear. This year has been one of those and I have been lucky enough to have the support and the means to get some extra help along the way. I think it says a lot that I want to return to this space when I am able to do so—I like it here and I believe. In the spirit of thanks, I’m also so grateful for Vivek Shraya; she’s been holding down the site with a lot of care and passion during my hiatus.

There are a lot of ideas floating around and I hope to make some happen while goddess gives me the energy. In the meantime, enjoy some fall looks from VS and KCC.

I’ve taught myself to braid my own hair. It only took forever!
