moon shoes,

I am sitting in my front room - there is no sound, only the occasional crunch of a grilled cheese sandwich being trampled by my teeth. It's nice to write when nobody else is home. It's as if my thoughts tie themselves to balloon strings and I'm able to let them go without interruption.  

Being alone every once in awhile is an important thing for me. If I was constantly surrounded by bodies with mouths that make shapes and sounds, I'd probably lose my head and my heart might go missing too.  A house with only my body, walking naked freely from the shower, radio loud without being hushed, spoonfuls of Nutella without being judged, this is just what I've needed .

Although being alone makes my stories easier to write, I'd never want a permanent residence in an empty house.  The stillness of beds without dents in the pillows, having to be the one to throw away the sour milk, being able to hear the clicking of my own teeth constantly. I think it's healthy to find solitude, but too much of it and I'd become a walking attic. Dusty and lonely without human fingerprints. 

These shoes were another treasure sent to me from my sponsor, Oasap. Maybe it's the sequins, the thick bottom or the silver color, but somehow they remind me of the moon. When I picked them out, I was instantly sent to thoughts of space travel.   Sometimes, my brain conjures up a parallel world between an inanimate object (like a shoe), and something like the moon. Maybe you see the moon similarity or maybe I'm wild, but if there was fashion in space, I think a lady astronaut might wear these shoes.


I'm so so sorry for posting once a week here, & for being sluggish through emails and facebook correspondence. I've injured my hands from too much writing so I've been wearing a cast and praying for better days. 

Life is full of riddles and plans. Sometimes, all we must do is rest.
For my rest, I've been watching movies and eating too many pieces of cheese. ;)

  6. I completely agree with everything you said about being alone. For me, being alone occasionally is absolutely necessary for me to not loose my mind. Adore your outfit too. Love the glittery shoes and your crown of course. :)
