Blowing in the Wind


I stopped by League the other day, looking for some appliers for my Slink hands and almost forgot to buy them, I was so distracted by this gorgeous skirt and mohair sweater. I wanted to buy fat packs, but I was disciplined and settled on this gorgeous fuchsia. The sweater comes with a solid color or a gradient. I am wearing the gradient in this photo.

A lot of life’s answers are blowing in the wind, as the Bob Dylan song asserts. But what does that mean? Some people think it means the answers are right in front of our faces – answers we could pluck from the air if we only chose to do so. Myself, I think it means that the answers are unknowable, as imperceptible as the molecules on the wind. Of course, Bob Dylan’s explanation is as ambiguous as the song.

There ain’t too much I can say about this song except that the answer is blowing in the wind. It ain’t in no book or movie or TV show or discussion group. Man, it’s in the wind – and it’s blowing in the wind. Too many of these hip people are telling me where the answer is but oh I won’t believe that. I still say it’s in the wind and just like a restless piece of paper it’s got to come down some  …But the only trouble is that no one picks up the answer when it comes down so not too many people get to see and know . . . and then it flies away. I still say that some of the biggest criminals are those that turn their heads away when they see wrong and know it’s wrong. I’m only 21 years old and I know that there’s been too many   . . . You people over 21, you’re older and smarter.[*]


The questions he asks are really about how we find justice. What must people do before we see their humanity? How do we find peace? How do we end war? What is freedom and how do we make people free? How do we come to care about each other? When do we learn to see and speak up about injustice? The answer may be blowing in the wind, but it’s also within ourselves, if we only choose to look. Perhaps the real question is why we choose to tolerate injustice.


The Blown hairstyle got me thinking about the Bob Dylan song. I just love it so much. The jewelry is from Bliensen and MaiTai and the loving detail in that lizard brooch is amazing. You can see it close-up here on Flickr.


Aren’t these shoes from MaiMai gorgeous – and for Slink feet which is always a bonus.


The skin is from JOLI for Skin Fair. The nails are a gorgeous burgundy with gold tips tom ZOZ.
