BLACK IS GOOD
To all unanswered questions, answers begin to appear. Perhaps they should have been asked out loud and written down in black letters on digital white paper.
The alarm goes off. When I open my eyes, it’s black. White mornings stayed somewhere in the summer.
The day begins with a cup of black coffee. Mmm… Those 10 minutes of silence. Already in childhood, I realized that the inner life is much more interesting than the one we live on the outside. I apply black mascara L'Oréal Paris Bambi Eye on my lashes. Just how hard it is to find that silence on a noisy day (I think to myself) while looking at my black fur Swedish House Mafia X Ikea’s limited-edition slippers with little devils in my eyes. Yep, yep, my furry friends agree with me on these black thoughts. I smelled my wrist and one more… Mmm… The smell of passion - a black bottle of YSL Black Opium perfume. I put on a black Equanimity bracelet to remind myself during the day that it feels good to live, to wake up in the moments of the day, and that the next morning I would try again if something went wrong today. I put on a three-oval Mind-Body-Spirit ring, once bought in Asia. The ring with the inscription representing the Body is black. Somehow black is good…
The morning continues. Black military-style Cos sweater, pencil-shaped black MQ skirt, black H & M jacket, and Vagabond boots. Here’s another set of my black autumn. And there’s still a black-long-knitted-warm MQ dress in the closet that I unexpectedly bought in Sukne boutique. I always find there something Asian stylish and wardrobe cool.
My thoughts go back to a post ‘I just can’t wear black anymore’ written back in the heat of Malaysia about black.
I boldly say – BLACK – the color of my autumn.
It returned with all its depths, shades, and mysticism. I don’t give up the colors, they will remain in the details and accents, and I will try to shine to stay in my zen balance.
The day is coming to an end.
It’s BLACK again.
I immerse myself in dreams – BLACK IS GOOD.
