ya hes cute…….but is he conscientious of the social inequalities and corruption in hierarchies of power that plague this world
And is he able to navigate those with grace and self-awareness, leveraging the tension and discomfort inherent in the system in order to push buttons and elicit reactions. In a hot way.
Our next parcel package, you’l be pleased to hear, will be a fine pair of stockings. The season for them is here, and now is the time of year for wearing them.
And if you’re not a stocking-wearer, nor have a friend to gift them too (with the stated obligation to wear them for you, or not), then keep them on hand for a peculiar myriad of uses such as exfoliation (they word in pinch, more gently than one might imagine), cleaning (they work well for polishing pots), and removing nail polish (with acetone, in the place of cotton balls).
But I first suggest you find a lovely soul to dress them in, or don them your very self.
Who among us does not enjoy a lovely letter, in the mail? I find a fine letter opener, to cleanly slice the envelope, adds immeasurably to the experience, once the excitement of the opening moment has come and gone, leaving the accessible envelope handsomely slit apart, with no rough folds, bends, or tawdry flaps out of place.
Last night was the latest in a series of readings by the Dirty Boys, Jack Stratton, Gibson Grand, and my own dear Guy New York, joined by Daisy Danger. I’ve been unable to join them for the last few and so was quite pleased to be here and present for this fine evening.
I shot the night, and captured some lovely moment, almost entirely in flash-assisted Infrared, which has the lovely side effect of being nearly invisible to the human eye, and hence much less disruptive than a normal flash.
We also had the simply delightful good fortune to have a few TDG Members, and friends of Members, in the house, and their stories were magical. They know who they are, and this is a little nod to such lovely people.
These rules are, of course — as ought to be apparent by those following them, especially dolls — themselves always slowly iterating, and being revised, and improved, and adjusted.
Nonetheless, today my rules are embodied thus:
- Embody ELEGANCE at all scales.
- CHOOSE with intention and walk that path.
- PRACTICE, with patience, and let go of self critique.
- ITERATE, and adjust.
