This week's wardrobe inspired by rage
I am enraged about most things most of the time these days. Enraged. I am not at all comfortable with rage. Sure, I am happy to rage against the hegemonic machine on a daily basis and to recruit others to do the same. But rage against circumstances in my life that I cannot control--illness, loss, separation, watching people I love suffer and others disappear entirely--this rage is unbearable and I do not know what to do with it.
So what do I do? Mostly I withdraw. Also, though, I comfort those I can when I can. I teach. I do my work. I listen to a lot of music. I think about falling in love, being in love. I think about being in Paris. I look at pretty pictures and I play dress-up.
For you, a song I listen to every day these days and some lovely pictures of people I am trying to look like these days.
