“Vogue always did stand for people’s lives. I mean a new dress doesn’t get you anywhere. It’s the life you’re living in the dress.” Diana Vreeland

“I’m really only envious of one thing, and that is a surfer, I think it’s the most beautiful thing. You see, I’m mad about water, I think water is God’s tranquilizer. To be in it, to drink it, to look at it. And to be a surfer, ah between the sky and the water, would be the most wonderful thing.” Diana Vreeland

Democracy is facing ferocious waves right now, and, “We the People,” will crest or crash with it, connected by “God’s tranquilizer.” All souls, be mindful in the swell of the sea, for there is no space, for misplaced vanity. The sea will always be stronger than you, or me. To believe the opposite, will only lead to humility. You can be humble and heroic, while riding waves to shore. The sea is unintimidated, not coerced by corruption, it soars. Waves break bullies, before they reach the shore, without interruption, waves of seas and oceans, don’t have ego, nor the inclination to cede, and fall prey to the rapacious greed of manipulation, power, or seduction. Anyone may dawn a dress, trousers, blouse, or cape, just remember, karma, is an element of living, no one may skirt, or escape.
