Inspired Expression

Posted on Updated on


I went to an art exhibition yesterday. I went there without expectations and I left sooner than I usually do when going to a museum. The exhibition was about the women of the avant-garde and although I like the concept of avant-garde, apparently I’m not really into the actual avant-garde art.

So, not loving the art but still fascinated by the expression of these uncompromisingly weird women and very inspired by this quote;

Now, I can’t be sure that I actually know what this lady is talking about but to me it sounds a lot like a complexified version of ‘follow your heart’.

The way I see it, one of our main projects in this life is to uncover our own unique essence and then express it as truthfully and uncompromisingly as possible.

So, today I cut my hair. Not entirely sparked by the exhibition but still with an air of synchronicity between the artsy expression and what I have been doing with my life in the past few months.

My new hair is not exactly avant-garde but about 12 inches did end up on my hairdressers floor.

      Shin lenght, that’s a wow :D

      I guess I got the too weird kind and further more, I really didn’t like the color composition, which is very important in my opinion. Not at all art critique qualified but very opinionated :D

        that’s always good, opinionated is a plus

        And I meant chin length … nowhere near my shins only when I bend over :-)

            no … never been that long, and how would you go to the toilet, all that hair in the way, and how would it ever dry

    12 inches of hair? I’d love to see the new cut.

      Been contemplating stepping a little further out of the safe anonymity – not quite there yet.. But I can say that it’s short and a little asymmetrical.
