I've been wearing jeans in what seems like forever, and I'm not a pants sort of girl. So I'm exploring all sorts of ways to stay warm and dry in a skirt or dress. It has to be done quickly- there's not a lot of time, or space (small, small closets) to sort an outfit out. Garments need to be selected, donned, layered and dressed.
I feel a dullness to all this practicality- what comes to mind are those drab yet shiny birds you see everywhere, the starlings. I admire their tenacity, their capability to thrive in city living, and for their bright yellow beaks that commonly accessorize their otherwise plain-as-jane wardrobe: an oily overcoat of drab dark feathers. I guess you could say that today, I'm feeling a bit like a starling.

The pictures, taken at dusk, show the light at 4:30 pm. Like a bird taking wing, I'm ramping off my exit, off to explore the neighborhood, by way of a walk. Not very fashionably dressed, am I? But I'm suited up well enough for the purpose. I kind of like the fisherman daughter's look I've been sporting lately with my two new knit caps. It may look a bit drab like starling's feathers, but there is plenty of shine on the inside.
Wishing you a wonderful day!
