Reflections In The Waves Spark My Memory

So often when I go to write a post, particularly after a weekend, when my mind goes blank; a stark contrast to the usual chaos lurking behind my eyes. There are a few thoughts floating about--observations on my penchant for the ladylike whether it be a retro, boxy purse, or a longer hem dress or even my need to only wear sailboat prints or other nautical-themed pieces near water, but those tidbits don't amount to a cohesive and complete conversation and hardly encourage creative hyperbole. So, I'm left again grasping at straws; editing my pictures to evoke the rosy hue of that evening. I don't know if I saw the sun cast a pinkish glow on the river and distant shore, or if I felt the color instead. A warm, late summer evening with the water only gently lapping the shore and the cicadas filling the air with their songs--it was peaceful and uneventful, just a simple fleeting visit when I watched the sun turn reflections pink and my mind grew (as it is now) quiet.

i think even when you haven't completely gathered your thoughts, they seem completely and perfectly gathered to use all. your writing is so whimsical, it's almost like you aren't real sometimes (this is a good thing, it's why i love reading your posts). mostly writing for that.

and your dress is beautiful, of course. i love how you can make a dress an outfit. i have a lot of respect for that.

Regardless of whether you FELT the color or SAW the color, it's there, nonetheless, with you and your golden evenings and beautiful clothes.

It's ok, I always draw a blank whenever I blog.. probably the reason why i don't have a faithful audience. :) You, however, still manage to post with a very regular schedule, despite feeling stagnation. I commend that and totally admire it.

PS... I spent both days this weekend at Sherwood Forest Beach (Waimanalo State Recreation Beach Park) next to Bellows and it totally reminded me of you. Made me feel closer to you in spirit, somehow, someway. :)

That dress looks just lovely on you. The writers-block feeling you describe is all-too familiar to me...but for what it's worth, I always enjoy your posts :)

This is the perfect dress and you look absolutely lovely in it! I immediately had to buy it for myself, it has sailboats! :)
I always enjoy to read your writing and see your beautiful pictures, you've been a great inspiration for my personal style. I also like the color filters you've been using recently on your pictures. Do you plan to do a tutorial on this effect someday? That would be great!
