dust and fuschia

..."How could it be pink? Pink. A pink sky.

A Girl Made of Dust by Nathalie Abi-Ezzi
I'm wearing my favorite thrifted dress.

Maybe it changed colour everyday so it was always a surprise when you woke up.
from book A Girl Made of Dust by Nathalie Abi-Ezzi

My mom made 2 out of the three bracelets I'm wearing.
My purse and my shoes were thrifted.

Everything else would be different too, trees would grow sideways and shed feathers instead of leaves,

the wind would tell you secrets as it blew,
roses would grow as big as houses, and there would be no war...

My twin nieces and my nephew

while shelves along the book wall displayed large boxes of chocolates, most with pictures of green hills, lakes, and cows...

My art pages were inspired by Lifebook 2013 class.

....Gazing at the shimmer of her silk shirt, I imagined Mami made of pearls: smooth polished face, smaller pearls for eyes, and a row for her toes...

Oh my gosh, Freddie Mercury's outfit in this video cracks me up! Another One Bites The Dust by Queen reminds me of my childhood. When they would play this song at the roller skating rink in Cal-Skate, California.


  1. Mercury has been gone for over 20 years, but his legacy lives on.

  2. I love the line 'The wind would tell you secrets as it blew' beautiful!!
    Also love the colour of your purse and nail polish, goes so well together!

    And I'm gong to be singing 'Another One Bites The Dust' all weekend now!!
