"all i need is somewhere I feel the grass beneath my feet."

Newer Older


i had a tough time deciding which one i liked best. and i'm sort of a little bit in love with both photos. humble, what? me? ;)

(so, if you have a preference...)

Man Met Brill gave me "Asleep on a Sunbeam", by Belle and Sebastian for Musically Challenged .

i'd not heard the song previously. but the lyrics are so lovely in this languid, summertime, falling headfirst into love, sort of way. which made me excited to hopefully capture a moment of that in some fashion.

so, yesterday evening, before the sun had set, i threw on a long, flow-y dress, scurried up to a neighbors front lawn and set the timer on my camera a dozen or so times while i made little prancing motions and tried not to notice passerby looking at me oddly.

the leaves were crunchy beneath my toes, the grass soft and it all sort of perfectly matched the song.


When the half light makes for a clearer view
Sleep a little more if you want to
But restlessness has seized me now, it’s true
I could watch the dreams flicker in your eyes
Lying here asleep on a sunbeam
I wonder if you realise you fascinate me so

Think about a new destination
If you think you need inspiration
Roll out the map and mark it with a pin
I will follow every direction
Just lace up your shoes while I’m fetching a sleeping bag, a tent...
Another summer’s passing by
All I need is somewhere I feel the grass beneath my feet
A walk on sand, a fire I can warm my hands
My joy will be complete

    Dude what kind of comment is this? No flirting. No dropping the f-bomb. What the fuck? I don't even know you and I expect more from you than substance. Allow me to comment for you (and I am not going to use the word juxtaposition to show off my cerebral vagaries):

    A long red dress is crazy fucking sexy. Think Kelli Le Brock in the The Woman in Red except that might make you think of that shit ass commercial piece of shit song "The Lady in Red" by that motherfucking pedophile Chris de Burgh! Last I heard he was fucking camels in Arabian Bestiality Snuff Films: serves him right for making me listen to that shit at proms and weddings. So I'm torn between the shot that shows more skin (the first) or the one that shows more leg (the second). Fuck it: just post a third that totally objectifies you; then you can complain about people looking at you; I know I'll be looking.

    Hey Mr Potato Head-- I only flirt when breasts are involved.

    No breasts
    No flirt

    Instead one will receive generic comments about leaves and palm trees and shit.

    Fucking shit rather. Sorry ;-)
