on becoming a milliner

among other things, i make hats. they are concentric and a little buckety and embellished with loveliness. they are for small people. but i am no milliner (although, give me time)
seems other people make hats too. real life milliners. strikingly similar to the ones i make. concentric and a little buckety, although with much more striking fabric than i (in this instance, anyway).

maybe, by default, i have fulfilled that life long dream of becoming a milliner?

later that day.....
seems the direct to the anthropologie site links to their home page rather than the specific hat i was referring to. if you search 'jewelry and accessories' then 'shop hats' you'll find the Mail Kaleidoscope Hat by 'acclaimed milliner Albertus Swanepoel' on the first page.

dear universe

for listening.
and for delivering.
may i be so bold as to ask if you could, alongside delivering on all the requests of late, also provide me with a detailed plan of how to balance all that i have with all that i need and all the new that you offer me, that would be equally appreciated.

if you could also send me an address for correspondence, i will be sure to fashion you the appropriate thankyou card, from all-natural materials of course, for your efforts of late.
