Lately, I've been doing a lot of self reflection. They say it happens in one's 30s. I think it's because we've been go go going for so long that it's inevitable I would crave moments of quiet and stillness.
I've told you my inclination to design/create/dream when I'm moving, whether it be by car, plane, or train. It's because those are the places wherein I'm actually forced to stop
. That's when all the ideas pour in. My favorite collection, Bridge
, was born out of our road trips
. I've choreographed dances in my plane seat, dreamed up funny videos, written love letters. In these slow moments, I find play and comfort. I reflect on what it really means to live. All the good stuff comes to me when I find that necessary space. There is a real peace in that place, a deep gratitude. I attempted to capture that here. To finding your own stillness, embracing it, and discovering the goodness that arrives from there. Love ~ betsy ***Song of the Moment: Do What You Gotta Do
