"only in the winter...
can you have longer, quiet stretches
when you can savor belonging to
yourself"

'Sup, Nic!

I think only the most respectful SoCal-ites may answer with "'Sup." Otherwise, you look like the worst kind of Haole. If I hear "'Sup" in response in the OC, I want to see an anemone still sucking on your leg to show me you've spent enough time on the islands.

Anyway, why do these winter self portraits remind me somehow of H.C. Andersen's Littlest Mermaid? The girl so far away from her world? For love?

But you've still your voice. Your writer's voice. And it's a great voice.

Malama pono, -N.

Spoken like a Haole, 'cus never been to the islands myself ... yet ...

**sigh** I want some snow to take an spc in - that looks so crisp & cozy at the same time! But alas, I don't think it will come my way this year...

I love the background, for some reason it just seems to contrast so well with your comfy jean and hoodie look.

I really like that quote. It was good for me to read as I'm trying to find some good things about winter right now. And it is sometimes nice to have quiet stretches.
