after the noon

i like a week of days with no wires. cords confined to corners. slight fonts on grainy pages, and coffee sipped slowly. and when the books are old, long thrust into basements -- unearthed, at last, they smell their best. and the words of their dreams have weight in flat palms, open at the ceiling. remember what it was to dream in words alone -- when the pictures are spare, they are always perfect. 

in these moments, when i am lost (and ever found) nearing the end of a page and turning the next -- this is when i hope you will find me. rounding the corner, feet soft and slow on concrete cool, each brick in this room breathes a story. watch and listen -- stop creating for a moment -- and use the senses we've been living without, for so very long.

  1. This post is so beautiful. I love moments like this too...getting lost in a moment, in a story, in words.

  5. So glad you commented on my blog today because I am loving yours! And you're in Denver! I turned 24 there. Threw a tea party & then performed at the Denver Center. Wonderful city :) If you're ever in NYC, head straight to The Strand bookstore, this post tells me you'll adore it. x

  6. I bet you could write a book with stories that would make people feel just like this - your wording and imagery is just great.

    Also - I am currently reading catcher in the rye! Eee! I love sitting outside with coffee, a puppy curled up at my feet with my book. I'm on vacation this week and I hope to get through a couple books - Jane Eyre, Great Gatsby, and of course Catcher in the Rye :3

  11. I've been very much into classics recently too. Being an adult I feel I have much more appreciation for books I read in middle/high school.

    The way you write is very dreamy. I could be whisked away if you ever wrote a book.
