Oh hai! I’m Rose! And I’ll be mostly procrastinating, but sometimes blogging here too… I’m not a girl of many words, at least not when blogging, so mostly you’ll get pictures, and credits. Most of what I blog is not new, I just put together stuff I like and show you. I hope you like.

Hair Fair opened at midnight and in the overwhelming excitement of “shining, gleaming, streaming, flaxen, waxen…beautiful hair” it is easy to forget the purpose of Hair Fair. It isn’t actually all about the hair. Well, actually it is, but the hair it is about it not made of pixels. It’s made of love.
Several years back, Billy Bragg and Wilco did a few albums on Woody Guthrie songs. Guthrie wrote the lyrics but they were never recorded. Guthrie’s daughter allowed Bragg and Wilco to write music and record the songs, Among them was the cryptic Ingrid Bergman.
If you’ll walk across my camera, I will flash the world your story, I will pay you more than money Ingrid Bergman
I thought about her when I chose this background for these pictures, It’s reminiscent of Scandinavian embroidery and rosemaling. A few years back, dinking around on some genealogy website, I discovered she and my dad were cousins – sixth cousins, but still, he would have love to have known that. He admired her so. She once said, “Be yourself. The world worships the original,” which seems fitting since today I am not wearing my mesh head. Now worship me. 🙂
