Mexican journalist Javier Valdez Cardenas was killed on the 15th of May by a lone gunman in Sinaloa state in the middle of the day. He is the seventh journalist to die this year imparting messages about guns and corruption that most people don’t want to hear.
Today May 5, marks Do Write’s eighth birthday! A time for reflection, a time to catch my breath, and a time to break out the baby picture. Thanks to everyone who has supported us over the past four-fifths of a decade.
One thing I have watched sporadically is the wild output of so many people that are involved in Paris Fashion Week. With today being the last day, I will offer my take on it.
Last week was a very intense week, which I attribute to the moon. In case, you don’t know, full moon names have been used by many cultures to describe the full moon throughout the year.
It seems that the word, “power “ is the one to watch out for this week. We all have it, it’s not relegated to only the politicians. And we all possess the power to create. We create daily by the words we use, the thoughts we hold and the actions we take.
This week being fashion week in New York, I was compelled to write about fashion. Not on the images I’ve seen but on those that I haven’t seen. I’ve always been fascinated by the power found in suits. It’s part physical, part cultural.
