My, it’s been an age since I last made a foray into the world of Magic Windows!
I’m not sure why, exactly – other than that I have heaps of photos tucked away
where I can’t access them without the help of a tech-sherpa. Hopefully soon, those
will be unearthed, but for the moment, here are some images from my various cameras
that will serve as a window into what I have found curious and delightful over this summer:
This one day my beloved brujita-sister, Sienna O’Banion and I had the perfect summer afternoon:
we took a ride in her vintage bleached bone-colored Mercedes-Benz, Blanca – with all the
windows down, going about 20 miles an hour at all times (because Sienna drives like a granny!)
We drank Topo Chicos and got lollies from the pneumatic tube (magic!) at the bank – Dum Dum pops,
in MYSTERY flavor, which is of course my favorite. We jammed out to this amazing tape of gospel hits,
The Way Up the Hill – which is the perfect soundtrack for tootling around town in Blanca. We had quite
a time, picnicking on coconut water and chocolate and P. Terry’s under pecan branches, talking of all the
things that dear lady friends talk about – love, loss and life. Then onward to the clear, cold waters of the
hallowed springs, to become mermaids again – our hair streaming out like seaweed, our skin like gold.
My breakfast, which was too lovely + delicious not to photograph:
greek honey yogurt, blueberries, big ripe figs and sliced angelcots!
I found this dolly sunbather with her markered-on itty
bitty polka-dot bikini lounging poolside at Deep Eddy.
The eternal kitten (who these days we are mostly referring to as “Blinky”) teaches me that summer is for catnaps.
