Hope everyone is well, and that things are going as smoothly as possible in the aftermath of the most recent storm. Our barn roof sprung a leak (during Hurricane Sandy's rains), which is seeping into my outfit photos. These were taken on a weary, blurgh-and-grotty-feeling day and I wasn't the boss of my face, but I threw on some giant pants anyway and pretended I was off to fake Paris with Melanie. As one does.

Sometimes I don't know what I'd do without some manner of dingle-dangles to keep my hands busy, but I really have to pay attention to avoid getting a finger stuck in these.
I'd feel totally ridiculous, but it wouldn't be quite as bad a fashion-related mishap as falling off giant platform shoes. Right?
Leaks aside, just getting through so many days without a disaster of the personal bodily self (or anything going on fire) is a wondrous achievement, and for all of those I thank my lucky stars.

I leave you with more bits of excellence from my time away last weekend - I got to stay in an EcoNest (another article here), which had a labyrinth right outside in the woods:
More on labyrinths here. All best, and safe journeying wishes, for whatever path you're on!
