It’s funny, but it occurred to me for the very first time today that in just a few weeks, alpha // whiskey // foxtrot will celebrate its one-year anniversary — and nobody’s more shocked about this than me.
I can still remember the first time I hit that little blue “Publish” button. Back then, I was nervous, and a touch resistant to the sometimes self-promotional tone of blogging in general … But I also knew that I was dissatisfied with certain areas of my life:
My mistrust of others.
My own body.
And I suspected that if I could find the beauty in those places and pin it down into words, then maybe — just maybe — I might actually be able to believe in it.
So that’s what I did. I went searching for the beauty. Translated it into photographs, and into the tiny black-and-white bars we call text.
I did this over and over again — 175 posts and counting — and then I shared it with whoever was willing to read.
In celebration of that courage, I’m introducing a new series: Flashback. And when I say “new” what I really mean is “old.”
Over the next three months, I’ll be re-posting some familiar favorites — mine and yours — on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays (with new content in between). You might think of it as a curated collection of the best of alpha // whiskey // foxtrot.
Here’s hoping that my oldest followers enjoy a little nostalgia with me, and my newer followers discover some special words for the first time.
Either way — I’m glad you’re here for the journey. ❤
