If you don’t want wrinkles, you need to strike while the iron is hot. If you want to give someone a concussion, strike at any time.
What the heck does this mean? I don’t even remember writing it. I came here to write something else and this was waiting for me.
Maybe I can make it work?…….Okay, I’ve got something. I think it means that things can always go two ways. One of those ways necessitates preparation. The other way just needs raw emotion.
I’ve been offering my sidewalk faces as limited-edition prints. This is something I have wanted to do for a really long time, as in years long time. It’s amazing how long it can take to do things that you really want to do. It can take so long you could question if you really want to do it. For example, say that you really want to wear freshly ironed, straight as a pin linen pants. You see yourself in these gorgeous pants looking like a million bucks, like you haven’t a care in the world on your remote Caribbean island writing poetry and hosting fabulous friends while wafting about in your timeless linen pants forcing those visiting friends to huddle together in wonder at your effortless effervescence. But seeing it and being it and are not the same. That vision is not about spending your time ironing and yet those pants have to be ironed. They don’t get wrinkle free on their own. We often want the fruits of labor we can’t stand to make.
But I have made the labor. I have ironed the wrinkles out of my prints and now I can offer them to you. And because of that I don’t want to throw the iron at anybody’s head, most especially my own. Hurray! Check out my gorgeous new offerings here (and also in the Limited Editions menu).

Perhaps its best to just try to strike a balance? (bad joke?)
About linen pants. The problem is that linen doesn’t stay crisp and ironed flat, but falls back into creases as soon as you sit down in your newly ironed pants. But linen is also very comfortable and a comforting cloth to wear. So best to live with the creases.
I do seem to be pontificating!
Best of luck with the sale of your prints.

Thank you Mariss! Striking a balancing is a much better takeaway! I don’t remember writing the first two lines. I sometimes start posts with just a kernel of an idea in the hopes it doesn’t get lost. My drafts folder is really big and most of it is never coming to fruition.
You are also right about linen pants. Wrinkle free is impossible. Some stylish people wear their wrinkles with aplomb and others just look like they are in pajamas. I don’t know the trick, so I don’t wear linen. But I like it on other people.
