Best Laid Plan

Have you ever had weeks where nothing you do works the way you’ve planned? I’ve just had one of those weeks. I intended to create a video to show you the new Arles scarf.
 
I did, in fact, create the video, but ran into issues with technology. Determined to figure it out, I went through hours of trial and error, getting more and more frustrated, and the more frustrated I got, the more determined I was to figure it out.

Power of applying Lipstick
The Lipstick Lady

September 28, 2018

Walking down the street in NYC, I notice a woman putting red lipstick on while looking at her reflection in her handheld mirror. She’s homeless, living out of the bags that encircle her. Oblivious to her surroundings, she holds the lipstick in her hand and, with determination, she starts moving it around and around her lips, causing the definition to disappear. After pausing to carefully check her image in her mirror, she continues applying the red color.

The motion feels eerily familiar. . . .
