Long story short

Garance Doré
Sometimes I like to keep things sweet and short and that can be due to many reasons. Maybe I don’t have a lot to say or maybe I’m just not in the mood to elaborate. Maybe I have a bad day and can’t hardly put a word in front of another (in writing that is, you should not be worried).
Sometimes I relish to dive deeper into thoughts, to elaborate them and to venture a little bit further. Maybe a thought is in the back of my mind for quite a while already and I just have to put it in words. Maybe I have a good day and unexpectedly two or three sentences become all of a sudden fare more than that.

Whether it is a short text or a more extensive one, I enjoy the variety in writing. Both have something special about them that speaks in their favour. And to be frank, it also takes the pressure away to always „deliver“.

Now, you might think „this is all well and good…but where is she going here?“. Admittedly the connection between the picture above and my thoughts on writing is not the most evident. Just give me one more second (or minute) and you will get an exclusive behind the scenes look of the inexplicable wickedness of my mind (just kidding here). I really like the picture above and when I wrote about the roll-neck sweater yesterday, it instantly popped up in my mind. That certainly speaks in favour of the photograph, but also of something else: the styling. I love the idea of tucking your hair into your turtleneck for an instant change  (just as Garance pointed it out in her post). It is one of those things that I love to do during autumn or winter, although my weapon of choice would be more often than not a chunky scarf.

So here you are, the essence of this post was nothing else than an ode to variety. Let’s raise our glasses to that!
