it's a big, beautiful world

today i've had one of those divine sorts of days where everything me has so delightful, so fulfilling and completely lovely. it included rollerblading, the beach, dining alfresco, pellegrino, music on a record player, lit candles, and a lovely evening to come.

as i was sitting outside, i started thinking about how pleasurable the world really can be, if you choose to make it that way. i'm the type of person who thrives in chaos and extreme busy-ness, so oftentimes down time freaks me out a bit. until i actually let myself enjoy it, and bask in the fact that it's entirely fine to simply exist in your surroundings; giving in to small pleasures, while allowing yourself to do anything and everything that strikes your fancy. although i don't often let myself (or have the time -- while perhaps one in the same) have these types of days, when i do, they are so much more wonderful and fulfilling and pleasing than those days in which i've not a single moment to track my thoughts.

within this time of sunshine-induced profundity, i also thought about how wonderful it would be to pick up and go somewhere with your dearest friend to explore a place in which you've no frame of reference or immediate comforts. i would love to do this with kate...we're both pleased, so simply, by the same sorts of things, and i think the world we could create for ourselves on a trip somewhere special would be utterly divine.

and then, i saw this photo:

le fashion

i just LOVE this. two friends, exotic location, unbelievable clothing, exploration. the colors, the background, the story that exists in this singular photo is wonderful...aside from the fact that those green bell bottoms and that studded vest are to DIE for. i have a deep love for bell bottoms...it's the one part of my jr. high 70s phase (lava lamps, peace signs...the works) that's never died.

this will be me at some point in the next ten years, and i will be wearing those bells.
