Composing Myself

   I have found that each and every day, I am composing myself, morphing myself into something different than what I was yesterday, designing myself.  As I have composed myself each and everyday, I have found how healthy it is to find new verisons of yourself–that might just be the versions you are meant to be, good and bad alike; they are all shaping and molding us. Our experiences, our thoughts, and our company all change our lives whether we want them to or not, and this is the theme of this blog: the documentation of a girl composing herself. 
   My name is Laci Durham, I am seventeen years old, I love art and music and writing and fashion and coffee and books and just the general splendor of life (the ‘and’ repetition was intentional 🙂 ). I love to document my world with pictures, my world that is often mundane, but still incredibly beautiful.  I love personal style, and the way clothes can convey how I am feeling or the attitude I am going for, I hope to share my style ideas and tastes here as well. I also love words and using them to form sentences that convey my feelings, my thoughts, and communicate with the rest of the world; I am a strong proponent of the idea that is portrayed in Tom Stoppard’s play Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead, “Words, words. They’re all we have to go on.” The catch, however, is how you use words.  Words can be used to lift up or destroy, to incite change or to prevent it, but it is up to the individual to decide how they will be used.  My goal is to use words for personal gain and for others gain: to find myself and to help others find themselves. 
   My general aspiration for this blog is to share what I enjoy as I continue to compose myself each and everyday.
