SECOND SKIN

Here’s the lapel that has protected me from the bitter winds of every winter… for a very long time. Now retired to my front closet until further notice.

Some things you just don’t grow out of, either physically or metaphorically. As much as you want to shed them in the interest of “embracing the new”, they continue representing the inescapable you. And you learn that that is beautiful and ok…to keep around. That you can just let it age right along with you, inside of it.

So thank you, An Ren, for this treasured coat.
Thank you Miriam, former employer, who knew this coat belonged to me.
And thank you patchwork, for always celebrating our differences.
