Early summer is delicious and so very cheering. ♥ That’s a polaroid photo of a tree outside of my apartment, and, to photograph it, I laid it on one of my favorite vintage sheets. Prettiness!
The quote is from Shakespeare’s Sonnet 56, one of my favorites:
Sweet love, renew thy force; be it not said
Thy edge should blunter be than appetite,
Which but to-day by feeding is allay’d,
To-morrow sharpened in his former might:
So, love, be thou, although to-day thou fill
Thy hungry eyes, even till they wink with fulness,
To-morrow see again, and do not kill
The spirit of love, with a perpetual dulness.
Let this sad interim like the ocean be
Which parts the shore, where two contracted new
Come daily to the banks, that when they see
Return of love, more blest may be the view;
Or call it winter, which being full of care,
Makes summer’s welcome, thrice more wished, more rare.
This morning, I had an errand to do, and I drove around listening to The Kinks (specifically, The Kinks Are the Village Green Preservation Society, which is lovely. “The Village Green Preservation Society” is one of my favorite songs ever (the subject line is from it.)) and drinking some yummy coffee. Here I am on my porch after getting back:
♥ Here’s a video of them performing “All Day and All of the Night,” from 1965. Totally adorable & cheeky, too!
I love it when Dave Davies does his wacky-cute guitar solos. Angus Young totally copied some of those moves :)
More soon! xo
