Best Thing I Read Last Week

“Fashion is a moment of introspection as we radically reimagine what we mean by luxury, high fashion, high art. Because part of the old definitions of fashion was about being exclusive– and about excluding certain populations who have been making the work.

LIMBO magazine

Born of quarantine, LIMBO began as a project with the intention of providing income and exposure to artists who were impacted due to the lockdown. The magazine quickly gained over 100 contributors, many waiving their fees to take part in the exciting project. The ethos behind the magazine seems obvious and yet, LIMBO seems to be the only one doing it thus far — a complete equal division of profits amongst contributors in tandem with tiered levels of community pricing for consumers.

But none of that ever satisfied my longing for him, because even when we were together I missed him, as if he wasn’t actually there.”

The Defining Decade: Book Review

This book was recommended to me during an interview of another artist whose teachings have helped me navigate these tumultuous waters of being twenty-something at a time like this. Written by Dr. Meg Jay, this book is an accessible guide to avoiding some common missteps that can accidentally take your twenties off track for longer than intended.

Despite the distinctions in specifics, the themes and setbacks explored in this book feel shockingly relatable; audiences across all age groups responding that they wish they had this book when they were in these twenties.

Installation 3

As I became interested in spirituality throughout college, I found the perfect adult transition for my longheld fascination with rocks– crystals. Gradually, I have accumulated a small assortment of crystals that provide certain energetic improvements simply by having them around. I still haven’t delved too deeply into the entire scope of their abilities and the rituals surrounding them but I did manage to charge them under the Capricorn lunar eclipse this past fifth of July. I believe my intentions and the way I aligned my energy that night has helped guide me through the weeks since then, regardless of arguing whether the crystals “worked” or not.
