Were all Workers.....

I am absolutely in love with the new denim trend that is popping up all over the streets of NY. It reminds me a bit of the 1950's and Rosie the Riveter, a decade which Mad Men is helping us to remember a little bit more. Levi's definitely has it right...

I don't care about you....

Funny that my last post was about relationships, especially since mine just ended. Quite ironic. In the disappointment and confusion about what went wrong, what I did, or what I could have done I find myself seeking answers. Although, when I answered them myself, truthfully no answer would have made me feel good. I let myself become vulnerable, let my guard down and opened myself up to someone, who I thought was opening up to me. But as the saying goes appearences are deceiving.

This led to more questions, mostly about me and what I need. Trying to figure out matters of the heart are truly some of humanities most insufferable trials.  I'm hoping to figure out a bit about myself during this period of my life, with a little help from Julie Klausner. I picked up her book "I Don't Care about Your Band", a compilation of things she's learned about dating and love at St. Marks Bookstore. 

Take a look at it for yourself, if not, I'll let you know how it is. Although I feel like I will continue to build those relationships which have already proven strong, with my friends, and maybe I'll open myself up to someone again and start a new one.

We look at each other wondering what the other is thinking but never say a thing....

Lately I have been thinking about what makes this time here important, what is going to affect the way that I see the world. I've noticed even the smallest interaction with another person can change your whole day. I'm making an effort to acknowledge my relationships with other people, and feed them to see what they grow into. Even the slightest moment with someone can leave a lasting impression. 

When I work with women in my store I see that to be very true. I can inspire women to try something new, dare them to feel beautiful, and encourage them to love themselves. Each day I try to leave them with a lasting impression. But this is not only true in that circumstance but with every person you've encountered, lovers, friends, and enemies. How many people can you truly love? Do we ever truly hate? And how do the consequences of those relationships echo through the rest of our lives? Let each person you meet sink into your skin, through your pores and take them in. Think about them without opposition and see what it brings....

My favorite trend of the God knows, I will be looking for ways to look and feel cool during the hot NYC summer.  It is so dangerous that the Pixie Market store is right around the block from my house. Needless to say, I'm in there quite often.

I will try to post some outfit pictures soon, but I have no photographer and unfortunately am a little technologically ignorant and can't figure out how to use my camera! Cross your fingers loves!

Need, Want, Do....

How do you satisfy and unsatisfiable mind? A mind that wanders from one thing to the next hoping and wishing that whatever happens to be next in the course of life will allow for a little stability and contentment, but no, it only holds my attention for a moment while I conspire an even better, bigger plan for happiness, creativity and acknowledgement.

I have kept my wandering attention span busy over the last few months, life changes, big moves and new beginnings mark what is to be a new chapter in my life. This amounts to new love, new experience, intense loss, uncertain future and aspiring dreams.

To turn a novel into a few short sentences, I've moved to NYC from SF. Trying to really live the life I have always wanted to experience for the last few years. Contemplating the future, my goals and how to truly feed my creative side through an exploration of the senses. Only sacrificing my goals for me, when I want, doing what I want, exploring how I can be a better person and if I am not a good one to begin with. It has been a long string of self-examination and exploitation to only move me to this answer.....I will never know the answer.

I am desperately and deeply involved in everything that evokes human emotion at this moment in time. I want other to feel the way I feel when I see/say/do something that makes me feel alive. (Alive being a very vague verb, meaning feeling any sort of emotion at all, pain, anguish, dispair, hope, joy, excitement being only some of those "feelings" I mentioned above.) Truly an exploration of what it means to truly be alive, from commitment to irresponsibility and strengthening new relationships and burning all ties to old ones.

Thinking about this and my blog, I feel as though I want my blog to be a realistic representation of my life. I'm not posing for the camera, this is how it is. No fancy make up or camera tricks, real raw experience. I hope that that is what I can portray....I at least need to record some small piece of this long, long journey.
