To either reward you for making it through my overly long, overwrought post (feel free to skip it - trust me, even I am bored by my heart/mind sometimes, but the hope is that putting it "out there" will be cathartic, though time will tell) or to give you something more fun to look at than a bunch of words, here, in no particular order, snapshots from the last few days (see also: my personal Flickr account):
I traded winter coats with my cousin; she was digging my Brooklyn Industries puffy black one with a hood, while I admired her black and orange wool coat. I went to Brooklyn Industries in Chelsea to find a hat, but instead, came out with gloves. And lust for their purple down coat. Their hats were also super warm, but I already have a hat, I just couldn't find it. I am hoping I can hang onto these until at least January; I don't have a great track record with mittens/gloves. Or umbrellas.
