Not long after that post, I found this lovely article “
Hair is often the first thing others notice, be it the texture, length, fullness, or shine. In the African-American community it can also tell a story. It can indicate your background, lineage, and social standing. From slavery until today, skin color and hair texture played a large part in how the overall society viewed blacks and ultimately the way African-Americans saw themselves.
……this too shall pass.

With dark denim, a metallic top and wedges, out for drink with friends in Waltham, Ma.

I used to accompany my mother( a reluctant seamstress) in Kingston, Jamaica, to the fabric(claat in Jamaican creole) store. I took the opportunity to accompany an older co-worker, also a seamstress here in St. Lucia to the fabric store for the heck of it.
All the memories came rushing back, Indian silks, British cottons, post- colonial madras plaids.
I picked up a few pieces. Now I'm looking for a tailor/seamstress to make a few pieces while I'm here.
