(Holga- January 2010. Somewhere in the middle of nowhere)
"I wish that life should not be cheap, but sacred,
I wish the days to be as centuries, loaded, fragrant."
-Ralph Waldo Emerson
Life is busy now.
But I suppose it's that way for everyone.
Currently I am longing for lazy days by an ocean.
Any shoreline would do.
Although perhaps not one by the gulf.
(And with that statement, I am choosing to keep my opinions about the recent oil disaster to myself.)
instead of beaches,
I've taken to bubble baths and beer,
dinner parties and ballet dancing.
I am wanting these days to be fragrant.
Sacred and good and free from my usual fanatical fantasies that involve me far away and different than I am.
These ideas, I know, are of no value to me.
I hope all of you are well,
those who stop by this place every so often.
if you live near the water,
dip in your toes and tell it hello for me-
A wonderful, raucous, Courtney-kind of hello.
