Changing Seasons

art, lifestyle, parisian, visual story December 9, 2020

I compiled the pictures of the last few months, and felt uncertainty fill me…

What do I write? What do I say?

…That, I got to live my dream, but it doesn’t always fill me with joy?

That, I’m struggling to feel good about living day after day indoors, despite the privileges of doing so?

That, I’m tired of monotony, but not sick, and feeling very grateful for that? But that, despite the constant fatigue, I still dare to utter some truths;

Is that not the point of being alive?

And, despite that celebration, I’m still tired, and constantly losing inspiration.

Would you hate to know that there’s less laughter and planning, and more agitation with waiting for new dreams to come to fruition?

And, I still wake up to things that make me sad, despite how grateful I am to just be alive? And, that there’s so much pain in my reflections on the world I live in, wherein I constantly question, ‘what would make me less threatening?’

No matter what you put me in, I’ll always wear my Black skin, even in death

Sure, seasonal changes have never been easy, but putain, cette saison est trop difficile.

The Opulent Aesthetic

The old, European cities of the world may be lacking bottomless brunches, but they’re bountiful of opulent interiors. So, while you may enjoy mimosas the size of ranch-style homes in America, gold-etched, crown moldings and Rococo are the Europeans cup of tea – and, I can’t say that I hate it. Here, marbled entrances and embroidered chaises delicately whisper, “I’m over-the-top.” While, dazzling chandeliers call your attention without poking out your eyes. That’s because, despite their opulence, European interiors feel subtle.

This, I found to be true in London especially. From Victoria & Albert’s to Harrods, I found that the interiors of this city’s buildings overflow with intricate ceilings and flashy entrances. Alas, I’ve selected my favorite pieces of architectural bacon for you to indulge in American-style.
