Roaming Freely

After a shenanigan-filled night of jumping into pools where the depth was unknown, I am left with a contusion on my heel bone making walking a difficult feat to be accomplished. As I re-prioritize my life in terms of the necessities that lie on the third floor of my house while I reside on the first, I fantasize about the places my non-invalid feet can take me. Strolling through rolling pastures, experiencing waves of heat in a desert landscape, or crossing bridges into the unknown taunt my restless body as I hobble around on repurposed crutches that look like Red’s head from Fraggle Rock. These images will be my motivation to remain stationary and wear sensible shoes in order to continue my own wanderings in a timely fashion.

The rain began Sunday night and has not stopped since. With rain drops gently hitting my windowsill and grey clouds darkening the bright morning light, it is easy to burrow deeper under my comforter and return to my lucid dreams. Late mornings, long books, and retreats into the imagination are the cure for the weather laying a damp blanket over the North East.

Odilon Redon (1840-1916), Portrait of Des Essientes from J.K. Huysmans, A Rebours

(p.s. Gallery owner, Adam Lindemann opened a show based on A Rebours and created a zine to go with it. Zine’s really need to make a come-back.)
