a moment

Right this second I am listening to New Order -Dreams Never End, and I came across this photo. It's fitting. It fits my day. It fits what I want my day to feel like. I want to sit on this nasty, cushion-less chair, listening to New Order, with oversized headphones on (the kind with the super padded ears). I'll close my eyes, enjoy the way the sun heats my face, crack a smile, and then get up and walk out the door.

Can I go hang out in that space when you're done with it? Maybe a rotating door for people who need to get away...?

...I see the photo telling a short story within a lost memory, yet it's peaceful to just be alone for the time being.

Usually, I form my surroundings based around the way I feel :O). SO, when I ran to the window to see it raining (LOVE the rain) I see the rain seeming as though it's crying for joy and sadness for me, I call it "a moment" ...the way I feel :)

Nice photo :)

awesome. sometimes we just need to SEE the beauty of the moment, where we are, and not feel like we need to have anything more than what we really do.

let's do dinner again soon :)

Thanks for responding to my blog about fashion pajamas. Your blog is great! Love the commentary about the New Orleans photograph.
You're right about sweatpants! Ugh!
I'll bookmark your blog. Keep up the great work!

Ahh. My thoughts exactly when I saw this photo. (Except maybe I'd switch out the New Order--though I do love them--for one of the dreamier Nick Cave ballads.)
