i want to say everything. instead, i draw a blank. today was long, white-grey drizzled, and filled with loveliness: an old friend, a slow walk to the river, little boys selling flowers on the side of the road, art making, good conversation, ducks jumping for worms out of our hands, 8mm film reels of families i never met. maybe tomorrow i will surprise you with shining epiphanies and articulate revelations about the state of things. but for today, i must rest in the idea that sometimes, silence is golden. sometimes, a picture is worth a thousand words. and sometimes, just sometimes, life overflows with too much goodness to even describe.
