There are some things I've been meaning to tell you.

Look familiar?

This image inspired not just my last post, but the purchase of the necessary color contrasting item to make it happen. I had the kimono. This picture provided the sole reason for my purchase of that color of tights, specifically to be worn with said kimono.

I came across this label because of a friend sharing (Dion Lee) pictures from Oyster magazine. Next thing I'm looking at this profile/interview about Verner.

I wanted to share these images because, well, look at them. They are pretty nice.

I got up from my bed at 1:19am to write these thoughts, and to publish them to the internet, because I like this blog. I apologize to those of you who come here day after day, and then later just every week or month or so, only to see the same old post from over a whole month ago. What a disappointing page load.

But also, I do not apologize. Because to do this with regularity, whether that means 3 times a month or 3 times a week, is to make this a regular part of life, and thus a part of the labor that I give of myself. For me, there is no necessity to do this at regular intervals. It's not as if I need, as all regular labor demands, to maintain some bottom line - whether for myself or some others who want bottom lines to be maintained. I have no such needs or desires that blogger fulfills.

What I value is the vague sense of several of you out there, liking something about this, plus a handful of you that I know really exist for sure and like me. And I value this solely for myself, too. And for when things happen here that we can both enjoy. I especially appreciate those of you who read the writing parts. Because that is in fact what I am doing with my life.

I have so much more I want to give. I have a series on expression and individuality drafted in my head that I want to share with you. I want to show you pictures again, and to be able to do all the things I want to do at a level of quality I believe they are worth. To do so, I sometimes have to ignore all of the internet for a long time.

Well said Susie. I've only found your blog recently and I really like your posts (particularly the oversharing ones XD). I'm not a big fan of this style of clothing but I do like a lot of the other styles in your previous posts. Keep rockin'

Hei. I love the style, the writing parts and the ikebana. Always something interesting and fresh. Do not sweat about the posting frequency, not necessary.

Spot-on, I have been giving much thought to sharing and oversharing myself, but never got to adequately put those thoughts on paper.
All this sharing is just another instance of quality vs quantity, where a good blog can't be judged by the number of articles the author produces, the same way as its intentions can't be narrowed down to one particular post (the most recent one, for example). Some of the blogs I value most may not even publish something once a month. I find that taking the time to let go of the Internet regularly is not only beneficial, but most of all necessary.
Thank you for being you in this www!
