tuesday/blue



"there were times when elsa was out walking, when the sun hit on people's hats and gleamed on the horse's coats, and the trolley car passed by, jangling and laughing, a woman's skirt trailing out the back, and there was the smell of oranges from the fruit cart and she felt all at once how much world was missed in every second."

  4. The photo and quote are perfect for each other! My rather weak submission can be found on my blog.

    Hopefully I'll get something more interesting later in the week. I feel like the person who had to work when the party was getting started, I just got off of work and now I gotta work hard to catch up to the rest of the party peeps.
