Invincible Summers



I like this dress. It makes me think of good things. It's how I imagine the first day of spring would feel after a cold winter. When the blossoms are just beginning to burst and the leaves are tender. It's the cool shade of a large tree on a hot summer afternoon. It is the memory of that moment just after the rain has stopped falling, when the grass is greener than it's ever been and the earth is cleaner than it's ever had the courage to be.

 "In the midst of winter, I found there was, within me, an invincible summer. And that makes me happy. For it says that no matter how hard the world pushes against me, within me, there’s something stronger – something better, pushing right back.” 
~Albert Camus, The Stranger

Yeah, I like this dress.It's like all my favourite childhood memories have decided to give me a hug.

 

I'm off to bed. I have an invincible pounding at the back of my head, and my nose aches! I have never in my life had a nose ache! A nose ache?? Seriously body?
