The Moon Is Distant From The Sea

I always find it rather magical when you can see the moon during the day or evening. I mean sure, you're still going about your ordinary day driving on freeways, wishing that van with all the hippy bumper stickers wouldn't tailgate you when you're already going faster than the speed limit and you're not even in the left lane and thinking about what you're going to do for dinner and whether it's really worth it when there will be so many dishes to wash up after so maybe you should just pick up some Chinese on the way even though it is healthier if you cook something for yourself and you love those silly fortunes they give you--but then you see the moon in the sky and for a moment it's as if night and day collided and the world just seems more wonderful.

You are such a gorgeous writer and a beautiful girl! I very much enjoy visiting your blog in all its literary splendor. This cute mint colored skirt doesn't hurt either. ;-) Enjoy your weekend!

Sierra said...

I feel the same way. Seeing the moon when you're not "supposed" to is quite magical. Also, you look absolutely gorgeous in that second photo! I daresay it is one of your prettiest photos of all time, and that is definitely saying something!

ahhhhh seeing these pics makes me wish I could teleport myself there. As I look out the window all I see is rain, and cold, and wind and very grey skies...

The way that you write is so mellifluous and a fresh of breath air. I've always loved being able to see the moon. When I was younger, my dad told elaborate stories (and convinced us!) of how he was a dragon who would transform at a full moon. :)

I love it all! The words and feeling of the writing go beautifully with the pictures. Pastel skies, a moon, and a soft pretty outfit. This is one of my favorites, can't wait for some more warm weather posts from you! Hope you have a wonderful and relaxing Friday!

This is so pretty! That skirt and the headscarf are just gorgeous. You remind me of Carey Mulligan.
