a little bit of androgyny for ya in collaboration with Public Desire shoes. i’ve been searching for the perfect pointed toe for months, and was stoked to find them on PD. they’re made from all man-made materials, and are surprisingly scratch resistant. a great choice if you don’t wanna empty your wallet on a pair of short boots but also don’t want crappy material.
on most days you can catch me looking something like this. in other words, this is the most ‘me’ look i’ve posted in a while.

“walk with me walk with me, baby come on, talk with me talk with me
i like the way you move, i like the way you groove, it’s just the little things you do”

bodies are shifting all around me, stepping from one square brick to the next. at some point, someone took a brick to hand and placed it here, carefully glueing a stepping stone for all to conquer. yet there’s no movement here. i watch faces pass each other in utter disinterest. like lukewarm water escaping the palm of my hands and heading downward through my fingers. i’m out of touch.
i crave mayhem, i crave for the rush. i’m afraid there’s no progress. and maybe the city is underwater, slowing down movement as some rip through their muscles trying to paddle forward, unable to beat the current.

soon it will be cold enough to build fires. and that’s a challenge we’re willing to take. the tree branches surrounding our cabin have the strength to hold the heavy, cold snow without giving in, and on this cold day i’d like to remind you that we’re no less capable. so open your front door and face the earth as it lies ahead of you. it’s an easy game to stay trapped inside our cozy bubble of wishful thinking, but i assure you the pain is worth the play- that our strength coupled with our willingness to feel the cold before the heat is exactly the kind of mindset that brought our coexistence together.
so drink sun water and let it alleviate you. build fires with the help of other warm hands. soon it will be cold enough to build fires and we’re more prepared than we’ve ever been.

you’re a creature of playing, a creature of dreams.

and as one last piece of advice, she said, don’t hold down the sun. and i understood it as something like this:
your brittle skin deserves to absorb the sun’s light. your veins, uninspired, crave its radiating heat. your lungs expand to the rhythm of its cycle. rising, collapsing, but breathing- a new perspective is born.
your thoughts, elevated, reach for the sun above.

we are bigger than this body, bigger than our world. we dream in dimensions we’ve never experienced. we trust the chaos, believe in the rush. we hold our hearts accountable, and feeling has never felt so good.
because you are a dream- pigmented from segments of my vision and assembled, sorted, filtered and set in motion into my reality. an out of this world, bigger than our soul, endless maze- i’m happy to be lost here with you.
