Me....Lately

I've gained about 8 pounds...but not much difference.  Besides, I'm not one of those girls who ruminates over make up and how skinny I can get my jeans before halting all circulation to my upper torso.

It's empowering to binge on cappuccino and pastries while writing poetry....and never worry about gaining a pound here or there.  I'm too busy doing more important things (like feeding my mind and filling my journal) than to worry about an extra pound or two.

I have noticed lately I don't wear my usual jeans/t'shirt deal as much as I used to.  I feel so much more myself in a pair of leggings and a classy skirt.  And scarves always make me feel all warm and safe inside.

When I first began to take poetry-writing seriously (probably age 21), I used to wonder what 'writers' wear, how could I dress the part?  I remember reading memoirs of different writers and stories of how they began their career.  I found it interesting that some women authors preferred wearing what they felt was 'writers' attire before beginning their writing regiment everyday.

As for me, I write when inspiration hits.  I usually end up writing in my pj's.  I think it's a bit superficial to try to put a dress code to what we are...our clothing can't define what we do, though I'm sure it displays a bit of preference.  I enjoy layering my body.  I think it matches my body type, as well as my personality.  Many-layered, multifaceted.  I'd like to think that is me...
