"Fashion is so often presented in our culture as a thing of froth, which of course,
it partly is; but the bubbles are blown with such care and a sense of values."
- Anna Wintour

"Attempting to achieve perfection in art seems to be the passive aggressive way we express failing to achieve perfection in reality"- Woody Allen

 Just Imagine,
Imagine setting out
Without sails, maps, or compass to claim
Every continent and two-bit desert island
From here to Bimini and the North Pole,
Trusting the wind to toss your starving party
Onto a sandy void a world away.
And then to settle down and make a life
Complete with language, gods, and table manners
Out of an empty waste … .

—Paul Lake, from “The Century Killer,” from issue 113, Winter II 1989

Contemporary Warmth

      “My photography,” Doisneau said, “is not the world as it is but the world as I wish it would be.”

Everything is point of view. 
When we share anything, its the way we wish to see things.
            Promote what we see to the forefront. When you see something that makes you itch.
I continually attempt to find a balance between what I enjoy from contemporary culture yet, still maintain that warmth and character of what is familiar, that which is typically old with history, perhaps heritage. Simplicity is the beauty of modernity, yet simplicity can overshadow and destroy character, like organization can destroy warmth. Everything is balance. I don't know how cactus and Ana Kras are able to achieve that perfect balance.
I just don't know.

This melody knows what I'm saying. I think x
