Who’s wearing a red turtleneck sweater today?

I’m not wearing a red turtleneck sweater today, but I was wearing one a few day ago and I took a few selfies because that’s what I do to keep myself alive. I take selfies to stay alive. I know that sounds ridiculous. And if you take my words literally then it’s as ridiculous as it sounds.

This is an old red turtleneck sweater, I purchased it from Macy’s either last year or the year before last, I can’t be quite sure. You can see that it’s got a few years on it, just like the person wearing it. But just because something is old does not mean it has no use.

The day I took this photo I was struggling to control a higher level of anxiety and depression. The brief moment spent taking a few selfies helped tremendously to take my focus away from the things that were causing me to feel anguish and despair.

Here I am wearing the same red turtleneck sweater back in March of last year…

It’s shrunken a good bit, but it’s still a comfortable fit. I guess most of you would have already thrown it out by now given it’s older than a year and looks worn, but I don’t have a habit for throwing out my clothes because they’re a year old. I have things in my closet that are more than a few years old.

What’s special about this red turtleneck sweater?

There’s nothing special about this red turtleneck sweater. I just needed something to write a post about. This sweater came with a price tag under $20. I have the same sweater in black and one in blue.

So, how are you all doing today? Anyone wore a red turtleneck sweater today, or wore one this week? (Note: if you an earth reader, I bet you think I’m crazy to be always talking to myself on this blog. You’ve noticed no one ever responds and you wonder when I will take the hint right? But I like to imagine that I have an audience of spirits who enjoy my blog and who support me in all my endeavors and who respond in spirit. I write for myself and for them.

Singer songwriter Adelamonica AKA Avenue Sixty editor in chief. Writing as Monica for The Monica Archives. Writing has always been one of my passions. In fact, when I was a teenager, I used to tell people they should remember my name, because I was going to become a famous author. I used to live to write and write to live--not in the sense of writing for income but writing to combat depression and to feel a sense of purpose. I've written novels, poems, articles and essays that I tried unsuccessfully to get published over many years starting in my teens. When I discovered blogging several ages ago, I turned to that avenue as a means of doing what I love without having to worry about publishers and their rejection letters. Modeling is also something I have always enjoyed and something I wanted very badly to do as a teenager. So badly that I used to lie and tell people I was a model. I would carry around a large portfolio style photo album and claim it was my modeling portfolio. But, as with my writing, the people with the power to make my modeling dreams come true saw nothing in me that made them stop me in the streets of New York to offer me a modeling contract with their agency. So when I discovered the ability to photograph my own self (before cell phones and selfies) I took up a hobby of pretend modeling at home and that hobby has remained with me throughout my life as a form of self expression and self therapy. I ask that you kindly excuse my lack of worldliness and any instances where I demonstrate lack of tact or lack of knowledge and even lack of basic intelligence in my writing and posing. I'm just here trying to have a little fun doing the things that make me happy. I'm just an average human for whom writing and posing and singing and dancing and the other things I do are ways I express myself and keep myself going on this ever challenging journey of life. I hope you will find something even remotely useful or interesting in the things I share.
