"Here at the frontier, there are falling leaves.
Although my neighbors are all barbarians,
and you, you are a thousand miles away,
there are always two cups on my table."

show, Millennium

there was once this show called Millennium, from the creator of the X-files.

last Saturday, i spent the whole morning watching re-runs. i was torn between staying to watch and needing to leave - to check out a possible fashion shoot location for my upcoming collection.

i decided to stay.

around 3pm, i caught an episode about a boy who went missing in the Alaskan forests. in the end, he left a journal for his parents.

parts of it read: Do what charms you. Find that one thing that makes you say to yourself, "Yes, this is the real me."

shortly after that, i traveled that one hour train ride to check out the location.

i love Neil Gaiman

Remember your name. Do not lose hope ? what you seek will be found. Trust ghosts. Trust those that you have helped to help you in their turn. Trust dreams. Trust your heart, and trust your story. When you come back, return the way you came. Favors w...ill be returned, debts will be repaid. Do not forget your manners. Do not look back.

- borrowed from Neil Gaiman's poem, Instructions
