i'm a texan.

its a part of me that, until recently, i tried not to own. i wasn't born there, but i spent nearly all of my childhood and adolescence there. it has a huge impact on how i think about things, see things, experience things. that's something that i'm starting to learn...and gently begining to embrace.

i can't stop thinking about the beauty of tumbleweeds and wide open space. like this wonderful photograph by allison v. smith. i'm planning a visit to marfa, texas this summer. her series on that city lives in my skin today.

...and on a completely unrelated note...
everyone should check out the ott shop.
