July 3: When Good Things Happen (Utpal)

July 4, 2014
Have you ever owned a piece of clothing that you could simply not bare to part with.  Perhaps a great pair of shoes, a hat, or for my generation a pair of blue jeans.  Pants that took weeks of wearing to break in.  To finally feel as though they had become  part of you.  Then they became even better when they faded to the point that they were still blue but only just.

Beads, baubles, and bangles will last a life time but clothing never lasts beyond a certain point.  No matter even if it is your most beloved wearable item.  It will inevitably one day expire from fashion or from function.  Classic fibers, cotton, wool, and silk, simply start to fall apart over time when worn.  Even new high tech clothing will work wonders for perhaps a brief while longer. Then there is the problem of your own personal dimensions.  Perhaps asking the clothing to continue to do what it was supposed to do when you were a size b and now your horizons have expanded to some letter just a little too far down the alphabet to look decent or remain modest. Then there is that special purgatory when the clothing sits befuddled in a closet or in a drawer waiting to make at least one more appearance.  You can’t wear it and you can’t throw it out.  What do you do?

July 2: New Horizons by Utpal

July 4, 2014
 “I think it was on day 11 when I passed the point of 673 miles.  From that point new horizons started to open up.  I have never run further.  Today is day 18 and yesterday I got to the point of 1000 miles.  Then I realized that this was 1,600 kilometers.  It really struck me this number, really.”
