Sharing Poet Hair II from my previous photo blog, Lowe Aperture:
this is a theme I’m interested in pursuing, as my hair has always been part of how people used to recognize me, (the girl with the really long hair!). Most of the time-actually all of the time-the attention was unwanted. It’s not as long now, and maybe a little tinted with henna, but I remind myself of that Korean proverb: a poet’s hair can cut rock. It’s a reminder as how to be. It inspires me in many ways. These are unposed, random strands of hair, after a wash, edited on an iPhone 6 plus.

I like to keep things simple though, and too many platforms can make me question myself as to where I should be and why? So I have some random images I had saved from those IG days…I will share here and there via haiku camera.
Maybe this photo sums it all up:
