& today i wore on my legs: grey jeans, brown boots with silver snaps all the way up the sides, charcoal knee socks.
looking forward: to a restful moment, a nightgown, reading and writing some poems
& here's an inspiration for today:
c. has talked to me for a long time--at least five years--about wanting to make films. one night, some weeks ago, he said i wanna make a movie of your hand moving slowly.
it was late. i was tired. i think i had just attended a holiday party for work or some such function.
i said. uh-huh. yeah. that's cool.
but he didn't drop it. he got out his ipod and started making a movie that very moment.
so i said bring me the bottom drawer of my jewelery box.
so he dumped out some cheap-ass costume jewelery onto the bed, and, shooting using one cheap-ass light from ikea, made this little film.
it's kinda pretty. a little bit beautiful every once in a while, i think, with its prepared piano sound-track, performed and recorded by c.
admittedly, i have a huge thing for prepared piano--listen to c's small daily moments with the prepared piano on his piano blog.
and it's a good
& nice reminder that you can make something in a relaxed, even lazy moment, a miniature gesture.
& that's all. the artist is present for a second. nothing more, nothing less.
for me that's good enough,
& way better than nothing.
here it is:
