according to my gmail archives (which represent a huge part of my life)

i say the word "keep" far more than i say "release".

about 5 times more.

i gotta get over being so hesitant about letting things go.

excitedly, the model asked...ARE YOU FRENCH TOO?

"nope...i'm american. a black girl from maryland...."




my critique of the day:

Beau style, étrange et élégant !

oh to be called both strange and elegant!

i am always drawn to color

but these days i am seeing so much in black in white.

even the things that ordinarily offer color.

i am liking this phase...i am learning so much about
texture, patterns, silhouettes, and composition.


a long time ago a seasoned stylist told me
"watch the mary tyler moore show...you will
learn everything about color theory. the
director was color blind, and the palette of
that show has such a system."
she also suggested study i love lucy to learn about contrast.
