“men who wish to know about the world must learn about it in its particular details.” // heraclitus
more and more, it’s become infinitely clear – life is not at all about the big picture.
it’s about the smallest of details, magnified x 100, taken apart and put back together over and over, and over again.
from the outside, it can seem a right bore, the minutiae of the most mundane things taken so seriously – know i’m not talking about doing a shop and lamenting the price on organic bell peppers and how bad city traffic has become. no, i’m talking about those unexpected details that turn the everyday, into the almost extraordinary. a surprise hidden in a gather, a pleat, a sequin or hidden pocket.
