Yesterday @ the Marmont: met beautiful ppl. Black traded (someone else's) olives for cigarettes and drank maybe ten vodka tonics.

Everything should be all shimmery, but I’ve had a strange feeling with Black lately. When I ask her something that has to do with reality she just changes the subject. What happened when I was away?

Since the day she threw grain on my window this weird dream has been haunting me: Me and Black, in some sort of video game world, dressed as samurais. Neon purple buildings, roofs shaped as Kremlin in Moscow. But I know that we're in Prague. From nowhere the bicycle ppl from the Wizard of Oz appear and start hunting us down. We're climbing the streetlight cables, balancing on tiny strings. It's night, the rain falls and all of a sudden, Black slips...

Last night I woke up and found myself sitting wedged in the corner of my room. Aloysius noticed. Sat with me the rest of the night and held my hand. Dried my tears.

Now I'm seeing HER through the window, dressed in granny's old Kenzo kimono. An odd expression on her face, looking as beautiful as ever.

  1. You demanded words not numbers, so here they are.
    Usually people who take nice pictures, or dress well, or try to do either, don't know how to write, what to write about, God knows, whatever it is that afflicts them, they can't seem to get any well chosen words out (makes you think, are they really that interesting? or is it all in the superficiality of their image/images?). Anyway, this place seems to be the exception, that is to say, writing wise, you seem to be one of the few worth listening to, or more adequately, reading. And i do read a lot.
    Picture wise, why the little squiggly white virtual signature? Yes copyright, but it doesn't add to your photos. I don't think so.
    And don't think too many depressing things, don't cry so many tears, you're not that badly off.
    Give me words i'll be one of your numbers.

  2. This blog completely baffles me. It's incredibly well written, and even if you had nothing extraordinary to say (which I'm sure you never will) you could still make it sound exciting. The photos are beautiful, as are your clothes and you. I check every day for new posts and it thrills me when I see one.
    I also love that you take the time to respond to people's comments. Keep up the fabulous work
    Love from Nina, a little lost girl X

  5. Well the Wizard of Oz freaks me the hell out. Maybe it's a sign that she needs to fall before she can come to you with whatever's up with her.
