i love these hats. {ruche}

she tells the truth.

There have always been women who remember the old ways.
Women who hold within them the memory of time in the very beginning when women were honored. Women who refuse to please others by becoming smaller than they are. Women who take up space with their thoughts and feelings, their needs and desires, their anger and their dreams. Women from every age. Wild women. Spinster women. Wise women. Rebellious women. Women who love. Midwives. Witches. Healers. Activists. Women full of themselves, their ideas, their stories, their anger, their passion.
You who stand apart, come close. You who are out of touch, come near. They do not throw stones, instead they give you flowers and embrace you with joy.
They sing to you.

{i just found this in an old notebook. not sure where it came from.}

little bean.

i happened upon this little shop yesterday and immediately wished i was a little girl again! believe me, if the clothes there were in my size, i would buy them all. the store itself is adorable, complete with fabric kites in the windows. if you're in dallas and have little ones, you should definitely check out little bean.

{here + here + here}

write to write.

Write to write. Don’t say you’re a writer if you’re not writing. You’re not a writer, and who cares anyway, if you’re not writing. Even if you’re writing, don’t call yourself a writer. Say, instead, "I write." It's the verb that's important, not the noun. "I haven’t been able to write," people say to me all the time. "No, actually," I respond, "You have been able to write, but you have chosen not to." They usually walk away unhappy. We are always * ALWAYS * in choice. If you have a napkin and a pencil nub or a piece of dirt on a stick, you can write. Don’t let the "writer" take precedence over the "writing." Let go of outcome. Forget blog statistics and the endless "freebies" that have sprouted online. Why does your blog need to lead anywhere? What’s all this striving about? Don’t search endlessly for a book deal before you’ve even written anything. Go back to #2: sit the hell down and write. Sit alone with yourself and a piece of paper without thinking about an audience, your database, the best way to market using social media.
