Remembrances of guilty pleasures past






Remember Chloè?

I saw a crow this morning and it made my heart stop. Black eyes, dead feathers.
When he lifted off and flew away, I felt as though I was watching her leave all over again.
I might as well had swallowed a thousand nails.

Read more about her here, and here, and here

belle - i dind't even SEE the typo in your comment!!
Are you ok?
You truly have a unique postmodern style in your writing. The pictures are perfect illustrations.

I am in love with crows. And they scare me. Which is the same, right?

If you're not writing professionally, you probably should be.

I'll have to catch up on Chloe. I think she was a bit before my time.

Beautiful post. Per usual, of course.

That hat in M.J. style looks fearless on you.

You look lovely in a hat. I wish I had a good hat head, but I don't. I can only wear newsboys. Sighhhhhh.

Cynthia said...

belle, you're writing is so deliciously surreal-
reminds me of rumi: you crush me into rose oil, drop by drop, nor do i complain beneath the press.

I hate when that happens. One small thing jogs a memory that you have buried, and leaves you as destroyed as when it first occurred.
