Moments of Excess/Access: Purple Hair

I heard the gasps of surprise before my video connected on my end. I knew that the people in the meeting could see me. The green light of my laptop camera shined. In those few seconds delay as I entered the Zoom room, I set my face and held my head still. My hair proceeded me into the digital space.

Purple.

I’ve temporarily dyed my hair purple, and I knew it was going to be a thing.
