Daily Diversion #103: Vintage Water Nymphs
I went to the 20th Century Cincinnati show last weekend and all I got was… this pretty amazing postcard.
It’s old and the strange hatched postcard finish photographs a bit fuzzy, but isn’t their good time infectious? I want every single bright two-piece swimsuit they are wearing. Come on May!
“And so with the sunshine and the great bursts of leaves growing on the trees, just as things grow fast in movies, I had that familiar conviction that life was beginning over again this summer.”-F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby
Daily Diversion #19: Wherin I Show Off This Lovely Sunset and Admit to Not Being Romantic
The sunset was almost enough to make romantics of us. I grasped his hand, compelled by nature to some kind of entry-level giddiness. I un-curled my toes and kicked the cool sand; it rained lightly over furtively scrambling ghost crabs. The dog whined on-leash. Bending over, a head pat; standing up on tip-toes, a hug and quick caress. Then one of us broke the sustained peace of the ocean breeze and lapping waves with a bad joke or punch on the arm. Ha, back to normal we went. Quickly, inward, like a collapsing house of cards. Laughing. Unromantic and inappropriate. Wisecracking. Bantering like Grant and Hepburn. Our normal. Content.
