#106 - SUNDAY TALKIN'

Hello and welcome to a new post kitties and since it is the last day of the week I am saying welcome to this week's


As you can on the home page already we have a new. After more than one and a half years I thought it is time for something and it is time to say good bye to the magnificent leather leggings logos. I wanted to go more into this kind of logo since they are black and colorful. We have an awesome letter catalogue created and we will use them to point out special events on the blog like Sunday Talkin', formerly Sunday Talking.

But this not totally a goodbye for us and the crew when it comes up to leather leggings, because this is still the dress code in the office. One of my editors asked me this week Cat, why do we still have to wear leather leggings and the guys at least leather jogger since it is summer time right now and it is hot outside. I said it is the item BIB stands for since the beginning, Nici and I am addicted to leather leggings, we never made a secret out of it and we will go on since Clients got used that as well.

I was asking myself after that: am I a bad person that I am sticking to what I love or to what BIB stands for?
At the end of the day and also after talking to Nici about it I think I am not. It is just the way it is and there is nothing wrong with it. Always follow your triggers you are passionated with and always keep them, they are an identifier for yourself and for what you love.

The re-branding and the talk about this were the main highlights during this week. Besides that we are working on the 10th edition of the mag, which is like a milestone in the history of BIB. I will show you the cover next week, but I guess it will not be a big surprise for you (talking about a new logo and so your fantasy is up now).

This is post  number 106. This is a post about Sunday talkin and so here I am just saying what was in my mind and what I wanted to tell you guys. You love this series, so here we go.

After the talk with my editor I was looking for a poem about leather leggings and I really found one, made by Carl Sandburg:

LEATHER LEGGINGS

THEY have taken the ball of earth
and made it a little thing.

They were held to the land and horses;
they were held to the little seas.
They have changed and shaped and welded;
they have broken the old tools and made
new ones; they are ranging the white
scarves of cloudland; they are bumping
the sunken bells of the Carthaginians
and Phœnicians:
they are handling
the strongest sea
as a thing to be handled.

The earth was a call that mocked;
it is belted with wires and meshed with
steel; from Pittsburg to Vladivostok is
an iron ride on a moving house; from
Jerusalem to Tokyo is a reckoned span;
and they talk at night in the storm and
salt, the wind and the war.

They have counted the miles to the Sun
and Canopus; they have weighed a small
blue star that comes in the southeast
corner of the sky on a foretold errand.

We shall search the sea again.
We shall search the stars again.
There are no bars across the way.
There is no end to the plan and the clue,
the hunt and the thirst.
The motors are drumming, the leather leggings
and the leather coats wait:
Under the sea
and out to the stars
we go.  

I could not believe that someone was writing about leather leggings in poem style but of course the meaning of they is different here. But sharing does not harm anyone.

I love the poem and again it makes me feel happy to have a passion for them. Dressing up in leather leggings is awesome, put on the leather crop top and leather gloves with heels and the perfect outfit for me is done.

I am happy about the way it is and I am happy that it is Sunday again and that I was talking about it again.
Thanks for reading, be safe, be classy, be an artist.
