Tiny Galaxies

What if in another galaxy the water is pink and the sky is dark green? The stars glow blue, bronze and white in the endless green sky. What if that entire, tiny, far off galaxy has the color spectrum of early summer peonies here on earth?
Some days when I get wrapped up in work and distractions I like to look at something pretty and real. Somewhere a long time ago I read that as a concentration technique you should go outside and look at a tree and think about the tree to help re-focus. Today I looked at a single peony bud and thought about the tiny galaxy of molecules that make up the tiny flower perched in a bottle on my desk. I daydreamed for a few moments, taking in the colors and textures of the flower and then shook my head and finished my tea and got ready for work. When I was dressed and looking in the mirror, I was wearing the colors of that tiny galaxy.

That, or I just watch far too much Roswell.

  1. You know, I don't know if I have ever seen these colors paired as a focal point before; and especially not so well!

  17. hey beautiful! your blog is my favorite blog at the moment. I really love it how u still use the clothes u wore a few years ago and not like many other bloggers buy new clothes all the time and only wear the "newbies" in ur photos. There are thousands of possibilities to combine one item and u're really making that clear! I've seen this skirt many times here but it always looks fresh and i will probably never get bored of it! keep up the good work! :)

  21. I love what you wrote here.  I loved how it all came together in that you were wearing the colors of the peony galaxy! And of course, your galaxy bag is just the icing on the cake.  I am going to have to try out this color combination because its gorgeous!
    Have a great Wednesday!

  24. The colors and textures in this outfit are fabulous, Kal.  I love that you look at something "pretty and real" to refocus yourself- I do the same thing.  It's incredible the fresh perspective a single peony can give you!

  30. I just discovered your blog all of two minutes ago, but had to pop by to say that not only do I love that tote, but I am also a huge Roswell fan!  Not many people know what it is, so it's awesome to find other fans.  :)

  31. When people don't know what Roswell is I usually freak out and go into fast-talking-chipmunk-mode and demand they add it to their queue in Netflix. ;) SO GLAD someone else likes it!!!!!!!
