I like your original style of hair texture in every pic you do.

Thanks! I'm glad you like it! :D

I admit, I kind of find straight hair boring...but then, I figure it's because almost everyone does straight hair. :shrug:

Natural hairstyles and afros are thankfully making more appearances, but that just means that I need to step it up and play with afro shapes more. I try to never miss the opportunity to do something different with hair when I can manage it, straight textured or not.

I feel the same way. Being in the military I ended up cutting mine last week, but I am growing it back now. Where are you from anyway?

Oh, I grew up in a New York suburb....we were the first black family in the school district, even for then (this was 1980s). School was hell, but hey. I save bundles on skipping class reunions. xP

:handshake: Military, huh. I've got family in there now. What branch are you?

Im in the air force. It is pretty cool so far. Pays for my school so I press. My art work slows up due to the demands of both but I love to draw and create things. I make time some kind of way. So how old are you?

Oh gracious, nearly 40.

Folks say I don't look it, but I'm just self-conscious enough to refrain from *dressing* as if I'm younger at least! =P

((...Although come to think of it, there are Goths now that are long in the tooth, and *they* still strut it...maybe I should experiment more with that kind of look...lol, I always did like black lipstick.))

I dont see any pictures of you on your page but you definitely have a spirit of one that isn't quite 40. Im 29. So what inspires you art wise these days? What drives you to do the brilliant things that you do?

Well now you've done it. It's a loaded question and that means I'm going to have to talk. :blahblah: A lot. But if I had to pick one thing it would be:

Death. :meow:

To elaborate, I suppose that I'm having something of a second adolescence. I've been forced to look at everything that my life has been, and I realize that I've put off being myself for a long, long, *long* time. Somewhat because of my father's cruelty. Somewhat because of my mother's hopes and expectations. Somewhat because of the racism that I experienced in school. Somewhat because of how people looked at my height/weight.

But I understand now that trying to placate everyone else all of the time was a waste. ...of course, there isn't much I can do to *change* the impact it's had on me now. I don't have the kind of income to go exploring the world, like one does in movies. To change a few of my...relationships...would shatter a couple of the people that I care about and want to protect, even if it means that I'm, once again, putting myself in the backseat.

So *this* is all I have to work with. The art interest, the poetry website I'm working on, the new wardrobe choices I'm experimenting with at a painfully slow pace, the expansion of my political and social viewpoints (eventually, hopefully, with a new circle of friends to match)...this is how I can explore and express all of the bits of self that I've bottled up 'till now. This is how I practice being me. And that's my goal: to find out what it is like to be *all* of myself, not just the palatable pieces. To write/create some things that may help, speak to, or at least entertain others who are in the same stew.

Before that self turns to dust. :teleport:

And you? What's got your steering wheel? :tea:
