glittering cities

go enter this wonder-lovely contest: bridge across the ocean. eat st. marcelin & macarons & drink brouilly on the isle de la cite. swoon. then repeat. (i also recommend writing love-letter-paper-boats & sailing them off into the seine).

blue, heart-shaped rain

it has been pouring in upstate new york for weeks.* if i had a fabulous umbrella (other than the beautiful one from our wedding that i'm afraid to break!) i'd be even more thrilled with all these puddle-jumping & rubber-booted days. in any case, i have to admit: the smell of all the wet grass & newly tarred roadways--amazing. welcome to summer.

*along with pretty much everywhere else i've been!

making headlines.

Z & i were in our local newspaper this morning for braving a wind-advisory to be out on an iced-over beach in upstate. it was 50-degrees (though much colder by the water) & wildly difficult to walk around. such beautiful/violent weather. the best part of the photographer finding us out there (alone) was that she was able to snap a polaroid of us together, which pretty much never happens.

sorry i've been all silence-radio on here lately. there's so much teaching, grading, writing, it's hard to find as much time to write elsewhere. i'm between continuing here & starting a poetry blog elsewhere. but it's been quite nice to have a secret-ish identity on this blog. so we'll see. until then, cheers to the new year. to possibilities of a spring. to the hot chocolate we consume in the meantime.
