it's been weeks since the last time i checked livejournal and i feel like it would take me equally as long to peruse all of the pictures posted in my absence. i feel like this group has grown so much since i first joined in 2007, but perhaps it's just that i don't have as much time as i used to.

i got to hang out with jocelyn (jocelyninthesky ) again recently, but alas, no pictures were taken. she's my first real-life friend that i met on the internet, all thanks to GUDU! =)

my dreads are somewhere around a year and half now and seem fairly static in their development. they may have fattened up a little, but the only noticeable change to me is the steady increasing of this soft carpet of loose hair all over my scalp. i'm sure there is much to be done in the way of maintenance on my head but i can't seem to bring myself to give a shit. someday maybe i'll round the tips and sew in the loose hairs, but for now i'm satisfied with a weekly washing and drying in the warm florida sunshine.

i do have a few recent pictures to share, if anyone cares to take a peek.

me on the appalachian trail! 30-something degrees was cold for this florida girl, but the view was worth it.

now that's more like it. =)

it's finally warm enough to break out the swimwear, and we've been taking full advantage of it. daytona for bike week, cocoa this past weekend and this upcoming weekend it'll be west palm and ft. lauderdale.

i have excellent posture and a headdress made of palm fronds.


so i wasn't going to add this picture because i look really challenged, but this is how i wear my hair pretty much every day.

i'm really excited because when i go to west palm this weekend i'll be seeing a friend of mine that i haven't seen in over a year, and she's gotten dreads since we last saw each other! she was living in venezuela and i'm pretty sure they're mostly crocheted, so i'm really curious and psyched to get my hands on them.
