— ART, FASHION & MORE !
The arrival of August quietly brings me a big chance to search/look for something every year. Soon after feeling the climate change along with the start of new month, I wiped approximately 90% of my ideas for summer from my brain to keep me mentally fresh because it’s the time of the year when I feel totally excited for something creative coming in.
But at the same time, I believe autumn itself has a fragile beauty. Though I seek a sense of unity from the climate change, I sometimes fall into a funk; “how can I get to know you more, autumn.” I just tried expanding my minds freely and looked up to the sky.
And I realized I am in need of touching and snuggling heavy materials. Then I started looking for something specific- a pair of tweedy shorts- in my closet. I found them. After a long interval, the shorts gave me a radiant look and I had a moment of inspiration. Rinds of a tree, a carpet of leaves, orange peels coated in dark chocolate and cinnamon dolce latte I would have on a cold day…
I don’t want this magical season to leave me alone. But I just needed a quick change to get me calmed down for now. Somehow I missed the thrill of cheap finds wanting a little bit of extra fun… After satisfying a craving for ice cream at Big Gay Ice Cream, I popped into Trash & Vaudeville to buy a pair of knee-high socks and fulfilled a minor goal for today. And finally I stopped becoming emotional.
I looked up to the sky once again and asked.
“Will you be there for a while?”
There was a clear blue sky as far as the eye can see. I’m literally experiencing the new season.
