Connecting God, Dumbledore, Politics and Fashion – The power of words!
But, we can look to our futures and those of our children (or at least the generation behind yours). Find a glimmer of hope to light our way through the darkness. To do that we must look beyond the headlines, dig deeper into the words we see and hear. Even now, my words, look closer, dig deeper. The innate power of words can be taken back by controlling the way in which you interact with them. The tendency is to be complacent in our listening, change that, and engage in the language. Understand communication, propaganda, opinion, and fact. Philosophy has long argued the form of arguments and thus given us a foundation in which to become active listeners. Ask where did that come from, why are you saying that now, at this time, is there more information out there? We are in the age of information, use it. But wisely.
Find that beauty in words, don’t just follow blindly. We have struggled to continue the work of our forefathers for over 250 years. There’s still work to do. The world thought American democracy was a joke in the late 18th century. Let’s not prove them right. It requires our engagement (Vote, look beyond the headlines) and requires our cooperation. It does not have room for ego, arrogance, or naivety.
Be more than a label.

I am a fashion designer. I know you know that, right? Maybe what you didn’t know, I’m also a storyteller. When I retired, my goal was to write a book. In fact, my chosen academic path reflects this as I studied creative writing. Obviously, that path has...
Today is September 29th, 2019, it is my birthday! And, yes, I’m old. To be honest, I think when I found my peace in the creative process of fashion, I found my youthfulness. Some find that this industry makes them feel older. But, even after a very difficult month,...
