The October Letter

Dear Damsels,

October’s theme is TENSION.

Stretched tight. Pulled taut and beyond your limit. Living at your most strained.

It’s being between places. Between people. Between states – on the verge before you jump. Waiting.

It’s conflict, sure – but it doesn’t have to be.

Sometimes the best things can come from the most confused places, and a snap decision can occasionally be the right choice all along. You just needed the pressure, that’s all.

So clear your head, take a deep breath, and tell us what makes you tense.
