Afternoon on a Hill

I will be the gladdest thing Under the sun! I will touch a hundred flowers And not pick one.

Edna St. Vincent Millay was not thinking of textiles when she wrote, “I will touch a hundred flowers and not pick one,” but nonetheless, when I put on this dress from NOIR for Collabor88, I immediately thought of her poem, “Afternoon on a Hill” perhaps because of that line, but also perhaps because it describes so well, the joy and contentment a person can find in nature.

I will be the gladdest thing
Under the sun!
I will touch a hundred flowers
And not pick one.

I will look at cliffs and clouds
With quiet eyes,
Watch the wind bow down the grass,

Up from the town,
I will mark which must be mine,
And then start down!

This is probably because she makes for all the bodies and I am always in Belleza when I need Maitreya or Maitreya when I need SLINK and not having to rearrange my entire ensemble for the day is a WIN.

I love you Blueberry. You stay cool. Continue reading

We’re Off On The Road To ChouChou

This month’s Collabor88 theme of Roadtrip has had me singing various ROAD songs from the old Bing Crosby and Bob Hope ROAD TO… movies. They are terrible, they are camp, but good grief they can still give me a giggle.

They remind me of being little and them being on the local channels on a Saturday or Sunday morning, appropriate family fare on a family day. Continue reading
