long time, no dreads

Soooo I cut off my poor dreads! I took the leap May 1st, Beltane. It felt right. I was a bad dread-haver and never maintained my hair and eventually a bunch got really weak and fell off. Oh and last summer I cut off 7 inches because they were too heavy. Anyways, by the time May rolled around they were ratty looking (to me at least) and had a lot of bad energy in them, as silly as that may or may not sound, but I felt it in my heart that it was time to get rid of them.
They had a good long run--October would have been the 5 year mark. I do miss them, but in their long glorious days, not the ratty scraggly days. I don't regret cutting them, but I do have sad lonely 'omg i miss my dreads soooo bad' moments a lot! wahh.
But! Come February, granting my hair is long enough for my liking, I'm going to get another set!! This time I'm going to take care of them better and take care of my loose hairs and keep my babies strong :)

So in honor of the death of my dreads, I'm going to do a short timelime from start to end.
