(Livin’ Large by Euge Groove. Please play song while reading post)
Send me to the moon and higher, see your works as they transpire
Take me to the heavens Father, let me take a trip with you.
Have your sacred angel guide me, bring me to my hearts desire
Divine your words are faithful and true.
Bring me to my knees O Father let me see your glory’s fire
Let your light shine down as morning dew. (by Sarah Connor)
Today marks the longest night of the year and the shortest day, Saturday, December 21, 2019. While likening this journey as a trip into the dark depths of the abyss, I am also using this theme for my fashion post. From darkness to light; from my little black dress to my free-spirited ivory one, from black shoes to creamy white ones. Do we need darkness to appreciate the light? I appreciate both as depicted here:
The sunset took place at 4:15 p.m. today and will set at 4:16 p.m. tomorrow, 12/22/19. Needless to say, I may be celebrating the entire weekend.
As you may know, I did a previous post on “the little black dress” here and particularly liked the classic black faux wrap dress. The dress I am wearing is very similar and is by Norma Kamali with the fabric containing 6% spandex. It’s stretchy and very comfortable. It was thrifted for $28.
My off-white dress is something I have worn before and appeared in Fashion for a Full Moon. It’s by xhilaration (which it makes me feel) and is described as a crocheted maxi party dress, perfect for winter solstice festivities, pagan or otherwise.
Today, there is continuous darkness or twilight around the pole and the abyss seems close at hand. But I thank God for providing us with longer days ahead and the hope that it brings. I hope you enjoy this time with your family and loved ones as we prepare for the bright coming year.
PS: I hope you liked the music. The song “Livin’ Large” by Euge Groove inspired my poem and makes me want to dance like my life depended on it.
