white & brown is a palette upon my heart. this is where i start -- in my grandmother's guest bedroom, a space where i first learned that a place could be the physical manifestation of peace. a crisp white wall, and this very mirror which is now mine. white and brown. and then, a splash of gray. beige. one leafy green thing. and then, slowly, a streak of washed-out salmon, indigo, mustard may creep in for a time...ushered in and out as my feelings vacillate. yes, this is where i start, a two-tone, quiet scheme where you can find the beginnings of me.
