blue as your blood

A favourite song / blue and white.





Just a few more cherry blossom pictures (my sunglasses are Karen Walker Number Ones from Summerland), these ones taken with my Canon film camera. We had first stopped by the blossoms around noon and then, later, riding our bikes home again, we stopped for a second time. With the sun lower in the sky, the petals sparkled.


A beautiful record. I may start collecting these old ballet LPs. I don’t think I’ll try to dance to them, though.

  1. I'm going to die, seriously, ugh! Half the time you make me want to swathe myself in pale pink and white and then this comes along and now I need all the things that are blue.

    1. Ha! You can do it all, my friend. I'm usually not terribly into blue but the cover of that LP makes me insane. So good.

    1. I even like it when they lose their petals and the ground is covered in petal confetti...

    1. Oh wow! I hope you get to see them one day. It's a goal of mine to see them in Japan in my lifetime. So glad you like the tote!

    1. Yeah, they're not too hard to find usually, and never cost more than a few dollars.
