Still Transitioning..

My natural hair journey started off with me excitedly twisting out my hair twice a week.
Each day, I spent about 3 hours voraciously consuming content about natural hair. My hair goes through periods of awesomeness and then dips into times of wackiness. I never quite know from day to day what it is going to look like.

Blurry, Yet Etheral

This picture was taken a month or so ago. The daylight flooded into my bedroom and made taking a clear "selfie" impossible.

Still, I love the way the light floods into the photograph. It highlights my skin tone and softens  my twist out gone wrong hairstyle.

If only, this intense light could go with me on all of my travels.

Selectively Elderly

Do you often find yourself staying out until 2 am in the morning?  Are you partying just as hard as  you did 40 years ago? Do you suddenly become "frail and confused" whenever you are in the presence of your adult children? Congratulations, you are what we refer to in the field of aging as selectively elderly!

I really can't be bothered to think about anything else, except for the fabulousness of my own life.

 Much is spoken about the one before you.  She always seems to always be a few steps ahead of you.

Flooded With Light For The Holidays

This photo was snapped last month during the midst of the chaotic Christmas season. I hosted my first Christmas in my apartment. I purchased my first Christmas tree and cooked the holiday meal. Strangely, I did not feel an ounce of stress. In fact, I was excited and honored to host the festivities at my place. There a couple of mishaps but, overall it was a great day.  

My Natural Reality

Everyone has their own version of what reality looks like to them. For me, reality looks like contentment with a dab of garish truth just to keep things interesting.
