The other side of love isn’t hate - it is indifference.
Reflex though, is another thing altogether. From me to you, it’s now like a phantom arm - there, and I can feel it but pretty much not functioning.
I think I’ve kept you long enough at that arm’s length, both close by and away, hoping that I can keep the balance long enough to stay in the grey area for a little longer.
And then suddenly, everything ceased to matter. It wasn’t even a conscious attempt to pull the plug. It just kind of… died.
So I’m back to my old cycle, as a newer (hopefully better) person.
It’s 6am and I think I need some sleep.
I buy all your favorite foods so I will be ready when you come home
because once I did this and you said “This is how I know you love
I go on long walks alone and think about a poem my friend wrote
that goes ”This is how you die by distance.”
I hum the sound of the dial tone under my breath.
I stare at my hands and wonder at their uses. I consider pawning
my thighs. I consider auctioning off my hip bones. I put my breasts in
a box on the top shelf of the closet. I do not need them now.
I think of all the things I have to tell you when I will see you.
I just found out pumpkins are technically fruits
Cary Grant’s first job was in a traveling circus
Most mammals are born able to walk and learn to run within minutes, so we are not crazy for moving so fast.
This morning I wrote your name in the steam on my mirror, even though I knew it would fade within minutes
In my best notebook I wrote “I miss you” ten thousand times.
I wrote “I think I am missing one of my ribs”
I wrote “I envy the way leaves know exactly when to fall from the branches and when to come back in the spring”
I wrote “Everyone else isn’t you. It turns out that’s a huge problem for me.”"

"People say I love you all the time - when they say, ‘take an umbrella, it’s raining,’ or ‘hurry back,’ or even ‘watch out, you’ll break your neck.’ There are hundreds of ways of wording it - you just have to listen for it, my dear."

Have a little more faith
"You are strong enough because you learn from the best," - one of the most egoistic consolation ever, but one that strikes closest to the heart.
Thank you for the unwavering faith and the uncanny ability to make me feel like anything is possible.
"You are the only person who is in charge of how you feel about yourself. Nobody else can possibly do that. You get to decide if you believe you are beautiful or not, and nobody can take it away from you. If someone suggests that you aren’t beautiful, you can consider how sad it is that they have such a limited view of beauty. You can consider how unfortunate it is that they have such an exaggerated sense of self-importance that they think you should care about what they think. You can also choose to realize that it has nothing at all to do with your beauty and everything to do with their limitations."

A Visit To Tailor Caid
On my last day in Japan, I managed to pay a visit to Tailor Caid in Shibuya, Tokyo. Any fan of menswear owes it to themself to pay this place a visit. Mr Yuhei Yamamoto’s passion for the Ivy style of dress has resulted in this little piece of sartorial splendour. Walk in and it’s like travelling 60 years back in time – Doris Day on the record player, original 1950s and 1960s issues of GQ, Esquire and other menswear magazines and the clothes …
Oh, the clothes! The suits, sportscoats, shirts and trousers are truly something to behold. I spent a very pleasant hour in here talking to Yamamoto-san while he brought out pictures, film stills and magazine articles of Ivy icons one after another – Sinatra, Cary Grant, Anthony Hopkins„ Steve McQueen, excitedly pointed out the various details on the clothing and then brought out virtually identical Tailor Caid-made items. Certain small details – lapel width, notch size might have been changed slightly to cater to modern tastes but aside from that they were identical. These details have been painstaking gleaned from magazine articles, movie stills and books depicting the Ivy style. Even the shirt and jacket labels paid homage to the icons of Ivy – Brooks Brothers and Chipp.
I was thrilled to be asked to try on one of their jackets (the grey piece in the photo) and had I had more time in the country, a commission might have been on the cards. It fit very well and the higher armholes were a very nice touch.
Of course, I had to get a souvenir of my visit and it was to be the tie that I’m wearing in the photo – a classic black silk knit tie that’s thick and with a nice crunch. I will be smiling every time I put it on.
When passion and art meet, something wonderful like Tailor Caid is the result and I am blessed to have been able to spend a little time there with Yamamoto-san. This was my first trip to Japan and certainly will not be the last – a return visit to Tailor Caid will definitely be on the cards.
