Writing on the Wrong Rainbow

He was a boy who wrote like a scholar, he wrote about things he heard, saw, felt.  He wrote in a way that made you feel like you were interrupting a relationship, a private whisper, an intimate embrace, a sweet .... As if you were writing on the wrong rainbow.

He and his pen use to  dance on paper, laugh at the forming of the letters, rejoice in the beginnings of .... And then there was silence , a silence so loud it was deafening, a silence so clear as if....

He wrote about 49 smiles, about 49 dances about 49 tears that turned into 49 drops of rain. He named each tear...

STREET STYLE 101: Wardrobe Goals

Ahhhhhh, the fashionable spirit of New York City in the Summer.

Fashion is a very succinct, individualistic form of expression. In that expression, one must always be comfortable and confident in order to convey it with authority.
