Distant Echoes

Voices start to ring in your head
Tell me what do they say
Distant echoes from another time
Start to creep in your brain
So you claim madness like it's convenient
You do it so often that you start to believe it
You have demons so nobody can blame you
But who is the master and who is the slave
I just came across these photos taken in March. I was at my best friends 1700's farmhouse. We took a "stream walk" in the chilly water with her dog bouncing behind us. I drew in my little notebook and she played the piano, singing the newest song that she wrote called Fire. We make a good pair I guess. We're both dreamers, me with my poems and photos and her with her crystalline voice. Polar opposites too, she likes to lie about and sleep in and never takes control while I wake up early and can be anxious about the day's events.

Lux dress which, although I have had it for months my friend recently bought along with gold gladiators suspiciously soon after I wore mine.

we are explorers

We are explorers spinning across ombred sand
Given the token of dusty pastel skies
Hands twirling and blocking the shadows
The shadows of fences that strain in soft sand
Undulating across the beaches length

We sleep easy after screaming from our hide and seek spots
And watching the great whales slip sadly beneath sheets of blue
Gather white blankets close and close our eyes

We wake up here and the world is a newborn baby
Bedroom curtains swaying in a silent dance
On and on the mechanical water rolls in and collapses then is pulled back
Sameness stretches on from the window


A picnic on the beach

Ships on the Horizon-Brazilian Girls

Our friends have a tiny green book that they call the Fire Island Flame in which each guest draw a little drawing or write a little note.

some notes

Remember Jessica Martin whom I interviewied way back when?

Here she is in an Armani fragrance commercial (the final girl to appear.)

For those of you who have been asking I use a Kodak Easy Share z712 and HP Photosmart Premiere to turn my photos b+w, antique,seppia, and add a posterized effect. My camera and editing software isn't super fancy as I honestly don't know that much about the technical aspects of photography. Next year I will be able to chose my art elective and I plan on doing a Photography Intro class where we will use Photoshop!

This Memorial Day weekend I shall be taking a trip to a friend's beach house on Fire Island with my family and pictures will be posted when I return.

ended up on a broken train with nobody i know

Took a right to the end of the line
Where no one ever goes.
Ended up on a broken train with nobody I know.
But the pain and the (longings) the same.
(Where the dying
Now I’m lost and I’m screaming for help.)
Relax, take it easy
For there is nothing that we can do.
Relax, take it easy
Blame it on me or blame it on you.
It’s as if I’m scared.
It’s as if I’m terrified.
It’s as if I scared.
It’s as if I’m playing with fire.
It’s as if I’m terrified.
Are you scared?
Are we playing with fire?
There is an answer to the darkest times.

I went to New York city a bit ago for the Teen Vogue style swap. The clothes were not that great but I found one or two gems and had a chance encounter with Chloe from
who was wearing a fabulous outfit (high waisted skirt,cool 'fro, printed tights,geometric wedges.) The freebies were cool though, lots of Redkin product and perfume.

just sitting in my secret place, dreaming my dreams

I had this urge to just dress up and take photos of myself among my favourite herb, anise, and by my old hideout in a bush.
It was quite fun actually and I made do with self timer as always. I wish I had a photographer robot.

I like reading cheesy books about secret pacts with fantastical illustrations such as "The Mysterious Benedict Society"

tights:Free People
Shoes:I forget.
Necklace:a gift from Madeleine
