Nose to the Grindstone*

Here's the Prairie Tunic in a pose that's very common for me these days**.


The Nationals cap serves to keep the sun out of my eyes while I'm working, thereby (hopefully) warding off the ever-increasing migraines.

A lot of you have wondered what I'm wearing under the tunic. The beauty of this pattern and fiber combination is that you can wear it with something silky and elegant underneath, or with a wife-beater and these***:


* or, 'A Portrait of Desperation'
** Actually, I've had this pose much of my life, as evidenced by this seventies-rific photo of me an' my dad (Hi, Dad! Nice glasses! tee hee):

Hmm, no chance that the stress of the dissertation itself is contributing to the migraines?! :)

Hopefully you have good drugs to deal with 'em.

Ah, ok--I'm seeing the possibilities of the tunic now. I like it.

And Chris is right--get that stress out of your life, and boy will your head feel better.

Remember to try to relax occasionally -- pull out some easy knitting and your favorite Trixie Belden and chill a bit.....

I love the tunic and wife-beater combo with sneakers. Very inspiring.

That reminds me, I'm supposed to be in the exact same pose right now...(I'm even wearing a ballcap)
