unbar the guarded door
Is one ever too old to play pretend?
With these dramatic cloaks by Lindsey Thornburg, (who also moonlights as a model- I once worked on a lookbook shoot in which she appeared), I would have no shame in creating (somewhat cliched but who cares!) scenarios in order to fulfill the fantasy.
I can just imagine being draped in one of these, in an forest dripping with dew and mist, with a nearby pond reflecting the light of a waning moon, writing in a grimoire. Or in an empty estate during the dead of night, drawing out a pentagram with chalk and salt and molten red candle wax.
“With this sacred blade I cast the circle of my craft.
May it be a doorway to a sacred circle beyond time and space.
Let it be a meeting place for all good, and may it deter all wickedness.”
