deep blue sea

i'm with michael in turks & caicos and elodie gets to spend time with the grandparents. pretty much a win-win! it's always nerve-wracking to leave her for any amount of time but i know how excited her grandparents are and that makes me so happy. i had grand plans to post the outfits i am going to take with me but instead i'm just thinking about that big greenish blue ocean and this song.


"blue is 'the color of an emotion, the color of solitude and desire, the colour of there seen from here, the colour of where you are not. And the color of where you can never go. blue is not in the place those miles away at the horizon, but in the atmospheric distance between you and the mountains.'"- rebecca solnit, a field guide to getting lost

  4. p.s.

    this quote from the book has always resonated hugely for me. it's beautiful.

    "what is the message that wild animals bring, the message that seems to say everything and nothing? what is this message that is wordless, that is nothing more or less than the animals themselves - that the world is wild, that life is unpredictable in its goodness and its danger, that the world is larger than your imagination?"
