wanting that glow







dear friends it has been one of those crazy week's necessary weeks the ones you dread but must do. the funny thing about that is at the end i can not help but change. today while driving to the cafe i was listening to some chopin perhaps a bit too loudly in the car i had gotten lost in thought when my ears broke away from the violin my eyes focused on a toys r us sign as if for a few moments before i was somewhere else, somewhere without strip malls, neon signs and drive up windows. I started to think about-the places i go in my mind and if one day my mind will skip out on reality and permanently live in these places. i have become an observer wait, i have always been an observer but my eyes have begun to focus on things differently, as if i am getting ready for a journey where these things will not exist, a place where one day i will only visit while the music plays.

I'd definitely rather live in the places in my mind sometimes. And your space here feels a lot like my mind would like the world to be. Beautiful glow you've captured...

Claire said...

well you certainly found the glow!

you have described a life that would appear to be far away from you but when you talk and write and photograph, i see this very picture in motion... one where the music plays.

I have opened up the "post a comment" box on this one about 7 times and each time changed my mind about leaving one. Suffice it to say that this post has left me thinking the past couple days.

We are going through tough an big changes here also and a lot of uncertainties and I feel the same way while driving home. I let the car take me to the dock at the end of the street and I just sit there listening to the music, in another world, where I don't have to make decisions and where there is no fear.
My heart goes out to you and for everything that you feel.
