What I Wore, Spring Edition!

What I wore…it’s spring!
Hello sweet readers…it’s time for another installment of what I wore. Today’s outfits are inspired by the beautiful Spring weather we have been having her in Northern Virginia. The flowers are all in bloom and the trees are pollenating like crazy. The daily temps are hanging in the high sixties to low eighties which means no more winter coats! Freedom!!
It is still chilly in the morning though so a cardigan is helpful. In this first outifit, I am wearing and Eloquii pencil skirt, a LuLaRoe tee and a Land’s End cardigan in navy blue

People of the Street: Wall and Beyond

How awesome, I thought; how simply amazing.
Here we are on Wall Street, a typical, busy, workday afternoon. So many people rushing by.
Some clearly lost in their own headphone world, some passing the time chatting away on their phones.

Hey Y’all. Happy Easter Friday!! It’s still the easter Octave so today we get to eat ALL the meat!! Woohoo!!

Think, Feel, Be

While the head can discern only through listening, and observing, and contemplating, the heart must feel its way through tears, and hurt, and song. The head often fails us at its one appointed task. The heart never does.
We stumble and fall constantly even when we are most enlightened. But when we are in true spiritual darkness, we do not even know that we have fallen – Thomas Merton

The Wet Pants of Poverty

This week down at the laundry-shower place, a guy named Phil pees on himself.*
