I have undergone a simple and very dramatic transformation. If you saw me tomorrow somewhere, you'd probably not even recognize me. Ever since december 2005, I've been growing my hair. No haircuts at all. I've grown my hair nearly six inches long in this period, but the hair grew all curly and complicated. It has been a pain to maintain and more often than not, got in my way than becoming part of who I am.
I managed to lose all my hair in one single day and feel the soft caress of the wind on my scalp. Also I rediscovered that feeling of freedom that can only come from doing something stupid. Maybe it does make me look like a terrorist out from jail, but I don't give a damn.
It is a custom in our family to do this on the sixteenth day after the death of a close relative. But this has nothing to do with that, it has everything to do with an august five years ago.--
Hair now; Gone tomorrow
