Oh 80’s with all your garish blue eyeshadow, big fat shoulders and stink inducing jelly shoes….I wish you to stay far far away….except for those neon parts. I miss those bright colors just enough to let them back in. But this time, I will take them in neat and tidy versions (as opposed to paint splattered across a sloppy off the shoulder sweatshirt) and I want them to elevate the natural things around them…instead of giving me vertigo in the black lights of Skate City. I want you in my garden….I like the way you look there.
Welcome back Neon, just leave your other 80’s friends at the door please.
