what it's all about

I am on a journey -like you, I'm sure. A personal journey, a spiritual journey. A journey about passions, growth, and living. I don't have a good memory, but I value my experiences. It's very strange when you realize that you are being shaped constantly, but ultimately only remember some of the reasons why you are the person you're becoming. I find that when things resonate within me, writing about them helps me to better develop my opinions about them, and to remember them. Sometimes, it's the simple act of looking back and reminding myself where I've been that is all I need to move forward with confidence. That's why I write. Thank you for joining me.

Latched up!

These aren't the best pictures of my hair, but they're the best I've got. This is post latching at the salon.
It's been a few days since the appointment,  and I'm already a frizzy mess.  Latching,  for me, really doesn't keep me looking neat, but I know it will help my slow to lock locs move along. Especially the ones in the front that I demolished during my towel rub incident.

There's definitely less scalpage this way.

I've noticed I am so much more locked in the back of my hair. And yes, I know that because I can't seem to keep my hands out of my hair. It's not like I'm twisting them, I just keep squeezing them :)

My brother graduates on Saturday. Will one week be too soon to wash and retwist so I am looking my best that day? I will have all my family in town. I mean, it's not like I plan on doing it weekly. It would just be this one time... I guess we'll see how my hair and scalp are acting as the week progresses.


  1. Your hair looks great! Are you a Wachovian/Wellsfargoian?

  2. nope, I'm not! Why, did you think you've seen me there?
