Whips & Wind

Christina Onassis, 5 years old, Paris, 1957 by Alejo Vidal-Quadras

Who is your own worst enemy? I am mine, I am mine. It's last night, it's too late, it's still 80°F (feels like 81°F), and I'm doing the old knock it down, kick it in the teeth, followed by the required resurrection, the phoenix that grows from the quick, easily forgotten moment of self-possession. Will it work? Goddamn, one of these days, its just got to. These wild, white hairs aren't dyeing themselves.

let them win for they always will. and perhaps you will see it not as a battle but a gift.
