general store



serena mitnik-miller



captures the lightness
of sand, sea and sky




and knows
how to curate
the feeling.


the calm clarity
of being underwater.
inside a shell. a rising
air bubble. a womb.
quiet. assured.
at peace.


...and the few
familiar things
you would have
by your side.



general store
is this space.





ps: i'm interested
to know what 3 things
form your comfort blanket?
make you feel at ease
with yourself in this
weighty world.



ps: serena's blog

This post goes beautifully beside your wood pile in the sidebar, which gives me a good feeling every time I look at it .

This is the California I wanted to find when I moved from New York. I am very proud that Serena's General Store is one of only two places in SF to stock my work.
