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.

do these look like locs to you???

They are starting to look like locs to me! :-) I'm pretty happy about that! It's funny how my attitude towards my hair can change so drastically from one week to the next,  isn't it?

So,  they may look like locs, but they still feel like ringlets.  Up close, they look like them too.  Especially in the front. But more and more are starting to feel locked up.  I love the way they feel.

As you can see,  I gave in and retwisted after my weekend of water.  Here are some pictures of my hair freshly retwisted. I put the black bead back in :)

That's about it for now. I had just walked past a mirror and thought to my self "locs! they look like locs!" (Then I got up close and saw the ringlets....) Anyway, I just wanted to share! :)


  1. yeah they are definitely locking up! Woohoo! Not long now, once the ends of my closed it seems liked the lockiness travelled up towards the base!

  2. Oh yes...on your way to complete loc'dom! They look great.

  3. Yay!Those are locs! Woohoo! Cutie pie baby locs :-) Watch out for the teenage phase, LOL.
