lindsey wixson. i think she is only 16. she looks like a fresh, so full, so brand-new looking. her mouth is a permanent 'o', full of awe and wonder....her teeth elicit playground memories, pre-braces, pre-insecurity, pre-concern...her eyes are sloping and sleepy, nap-time eyes, believing eyes.
...i can't wait to see what she looks like when she is all grown-up.

i like how ladylike they look. all the geometry, all the angles, all the architecture. the severity that still breathes out a slight wisp of sexuality. they look like perfect and very particular secretaries.

leaves move in the windows

leaves move in the windows. i cannot tell you yet how beautiful it is, what it means. but they do move. they move in the glass.
...these lines are from william h. gass's story in the heart of the heart of the country. a story of lists. a story of isolation and observance, heartache and hauntings. a story of landscape. of people. of loss.
read it. read the whole collection. it might change what storytelling means for you.

man about town

i found this video at loose leaf tigers and was totally awed by how beautiful it is. i love the song, the styling (particularly his turquoise socks), and how perfectly it captures the spirit of individuality and creativity...and what it is like to be in the moment of doing what you love...the silence, the focus, the freedom from "the outside world" that overcomes you.
rodney mullen i guess basically invented this sort of freestyle skating, and he seems like a pretty amazing dude. I watched some youtube footage of him skating and some could check him out here and here.
the kid in this video is killian martin...obviously tipping his hat to mr. mullen.

i've always had a thing for moss...and the way landscapes change under it. they become moody, mysterious, full or secrets and unexpected possibility.
