At Summer’s End

At Summer’s End

Summer is warm and pink, the same floral dress worn day in and day out. Open in the back to let a rare breeze flow through. Berries for breakfast, lunch, and dinner; an endless flow of sparkling liquids. Rain all day, nights spent running through […]

When You Start To Look Deeper : The One In Fashion

When You Start To Look Deeper : The One In Fashion

I’ve probably written and rewritten this introduction at least a dozen times in my head. I’ve written versions of it half a dozen times, in snippets, in emails, text messages, as comments on early planning documents within The Attic’s shared folder.
