If there's one thing I crave more than anything else, it's my solitude. When the country first instated the initial few days & weeks of stay-at-home orders as part of Covid-19 safety protocols, I thought well how much different is that than what you’re used to? You can do this. While I identify predominantly as an extrovert, my occasional introversion is domineering & cannot be ignored when I require a decent amount of social-battery recharge. I identify with seas of people but have always found it difficult to really belong. So I tried my best to attempt to gaze at this opportunity through rose-colored glasses rather than through shades designed entirely to block out the sun.
An open letter to myself & any beautiful soul that can relate. 3...2....1... Happy New Year! While the snaps, crackles, & pops of fireworks fill the air outside with startling exuberance, you feel the collective’s energy shift. A quiet rush of peace overwhelms your being as time seems to stand still. You smile to yourself in acknowledgment that you’ve made it through an arduous relationship with another year, the toughest one yet, excited for the hope that lies in 2021.
Sustainable, or ethical, fashion continues to rise in popularity, garnering widespread chatter in the fashion world & popular culture. Seeing as how sustainable fashion is better for both your budget & the environment, what better year than 2020, amidst a global pandemic, to make upcycled clothing your gift of choice this holiday season.
