Pink October

October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month and to participate I'll wear my pink jacket more often for the remaining of this month. I have not worn pink in quite sometime and I think it is time to reach into my closet for my favorite pink piece of clothing.

The pink corduroy jacket 
Yes, it is as awesome in real life as it sounds. I've had it for quite some time and it represents almost a decade of a growth that feels like centuries in which I have endured life's extreme ups and downs and continue to gain so much perspective.

During the last quarter of the year I often look for this jacket to bring back a forgotten spark, to remember young love, forget adult challenges and get back to explorer mode whether that is getting back to drawing typefaces entirely by hand, finding a new coffee spot or revisiting a memory lane full of endless sunsets in the Sea of Cortez.
