Quite symbolic isn't it, when you have a lifeguard has lost his pool in the desert? Juxtaposition is the theme of this story, because nothing in life is entirely perfect. You might be a water droplet in a flood and not a desert, you might be a grain of beach sand in a forest, or a whiff of fresh air on an empty island. It's not just about seeking solitary perfection, but about ensuring it melts well with the setup.

A foray into fashion was intended, but coincidental. For when I start drawing comparisons, my solitary perfection tarnishes. I may have the photographic talent but not the right setting, I may have the right eyes and expressions but not the right seasons, I may have the perfect wardrobe but a severe lack of time, I may have the right pair of jeans but not the legs to match, or I may sport the best smolder but not the right haircut, but akin to a lifeguard without a pool, it doesn't stop me. We all deal with our own mishaps and misprints and misperfections, but we all seek ambition nonetheless. Just like this piece of fashion, whch despite being out of place in a desert, is nonetheless rugged, sandy, sporty and bronzed. And thus fitting for something unintended.

The main takeaway from my story is a freedom of expression. Hence my high jump. You may think that red, white and golden - with a hint of burnt black - are the perfect colors to start a fashion fire. You may reach out to accessorize and seek your favorite red sunglasses. Only to realize something is not quite right or in place. The juxtaposition of perfect with less than perfect will always be a moment in a life, but instead of letting it hold you down, find a way leverage it, learn from it, and foray into opportunity. For just like a lifeguard without a pool, perhaps another destiny awaits.
