Embroidery

It seems things are about the details, and I have no broad perspective. The important thoughts seem to be: will the flowers be like these on my dress from Oaxaca? It’s desert…but I won’t be surrounded by sand in the city. Should I bring high heels? I have never experienced heat like this—why don’t I have more loose-fitting, long-sleeved, floor-length linen and cotton dresses and skirts? This is perhaps telling: the place of preparation is my body and adornments. That’s all I know for certain: this—me—is going to be in Jordan in just over two days. The rest I can’t be sure of.
