It’s been another crazy week. Between the appointments and the hangouts, I haven’t had a night to myself.
One thing I wish I had more time to appreciate is the weather. The most recent blizzard draped the city in snow wet and heavy, and all I want to do now is go out and shoot with a nice piece of glass that goes wider than f/2.8. I keep promising myself I’ll do it next snowfall, but life always seems to get in the way.
The overstimulation has left me with my guard down, and I’m stuck in my memories again. Left remembering old conversations, nights lost to the senses, and my regret at not mentioning how much I liked those nails done up in white and nude.
It’s not my fault. Honest. I get pulled into it in the most innocent ways. That song will come over the tinny speakers in the produce department when I’m picking out tomatoes. Or I’ll be on the 12 home, going through random songs in my collection to try out my new monitors, when I catch someone sharing what I always saved for us.
I’m starting to understand how helpless I am to change the past, but at the very least, I can change myself. And that’s often good enough nowadays.
You are so unique.
What man remembers, let alone loves, a woman’s nails.
She rarely had her nails done, and usually it was a single colour. One of the last times I saw her (after a stretch of time apart), was the first time she had a French manicure, so it really stood out. But it was a tense night and there was no chance for me to mention it.
Hey, that’s one of my favourite songs. Just enjoy the music. Cheer up.
Wow, I can’t believe anyone got the song from those lyrics! I was going to prelude this entry with a thanks to Stephen Stills and his strange tunings. And the title at first was Suite: _____ Brown Eyes.
I know it’s one of the greatest folk-rock songs of all time, but I only recently discovered it, and that line stood out in particular. It was pretty much the inspiration for this entire entry.
Interestingly I almost responded with a reference to a girl’s name which rhymes with the one mentioned in the title of the song. I just had no idea about the colour though :)
I got it; I performed it with a couple of friends, many times. : ) It was about Judy Collins, I think, originally.…
