About Me
Lovely day, All! I'm Meg, a happy soul that floats around up here in Western Washington. It's an incredible place to be with some absolutely beautiful people. Drawing, painting, reading, and music are all things that warm my heart. Dreadlocks came after I dove deeper into the art world (simply becoming more intrigued by the visual appeal) and began to explore a more simplistic lifestyle, aiming to be of smaller impact to my home. I didn't at first feel I'd experience any spiritual journey in the dreading process, but as the dreadies have matured I find they do serve as somewhat of a metaphor to the way I approach--- or would like to approach each day. After careful experimentation, making a dread here and there, using various methods, I found the more I attempted to control the process, the more defiant my hair became. I couldn't get even one to look or feel right, so for a moment I gave up on the idea. This of course brought a wave of dissapointment, as my expecatations weren't met-- a common occurance in many other aspects of my life. For a few months after, Id keep my crazy waves up in a bun immediately after washes, too irritated to spend any time fussing with it. This aggravation and impatience with the uncooperative and uncontrollable was what started my neglect dreads. Time passed, and I found my hair began changing on its own-- sectioning out, looping and locking-- and I was pleased with what I saw. Granted, there were some nervous moments, especially with the realization that at a certain point the only way to turn back would be to shave it all off. But these moments came and went, and without input or intention there was no dissapointment to be had, only admiration for what a little extra patience did for not only my hair, but my attitude towards outward appearances in general. All the time I've spent away from moneyburning hairsalons, makeup, and mirrors has granted me the opportunity to take a closer look at the true power of inner appearance, learning that no matter how rich your hair color, how seemingly smooth your skin, or well-coordinated your clothes, all the effort within you to change the outer will not effect the way others percieve the inner. These physical traits/accessories can be seen right through, it's what can't be seen but rather recieved by other beings that can't be looked passed, so why not pay these areas more attention? This is not to say all those who enjoy some time spent on the surface are any less, only that too often the most important aspects of the being are malnourished through preoccupation with such luxury as the manipulation of appearance. Dreadlocks are in no way the only path passed this absorption, only the means by which I myself have come to these realizations. As I said up top, I never expected strange strands of keratin to teach me much, but then again I quit expecting. As these lessons have permeated my days, I find myself more accepting of the unforseen loops and twists in life, and more in awe of the wonderful ways the invisible hairs of the universe work in our favor. I'm not quite sure how long natures forces have been forming my locks-- maybe around a year now-- but I plan to allow this course to continue without restriction for years to come.
How long have you been dreading?
nearly a year
