Accidental Icon: Details Sensory Shift

For some reason the contours of life lately have been dreamy and blurry. I am not sure if it is because the days and weeks are just rushing by or if it is because I am walking around in a kind of dream-like state. Whatever it is, it beats the sharp, tingling edges of stress and anxiety I was feeling in December. The blue in this photo is both vivid and muted at the same time and perfectly reflects my inner state. The color makes my black coat look blacker and my grey hair a translucent white. The long drape of my coat, the sweep of my wide leg pants and the length of my shirt feel like old-fashioned  bedclothes and contribute to the feeling that life right now has a kind of magical and pleasantly unreal quality. I am having a delightful dream right now and I am dreaming in color.
