welcome december & on the set of an opera

"in compliance"

I love the way the city looks when the holiday season comes around! Brighton reminds me of the town in "It's a Wonderful Life," and the way they used to decorate my hometown when I was little. Nets of stars strung across the main roads, held up by light posts and apartment buildings. Snowflakes on every street lamp. Copley is also looking incredibly beautiful.
Nice things from lately:
-cinnamon applesauce with honey
-birthday at home
-funfetti cake waiting for me at my apartment
-dogs with beige eyes
-vintage avon animal-shaped perfume bottles
-carburetor hearts
-re-reading macbeth in preparation for seeing Sleep No More again (tonight!!)
-acoustic versions of "she blinded me with science"
-bookstore mania
-second-hand art
-BPL library card, in my choice of blue, pink, or orange (blue of course!)
-argyle sweaters with 5 shades of green
-dreams that walk the line between bad and good and therefore end up comforting and normal
(though I prefer mysterious dreams)
-black cloth copy of "The Picture of Dorian Gray" by Oscar Wilde with white peacock feathers all over it
-yellow larks who sing in different tenses (past and present)
-the bus.
I hope you're all having a wonderful week! I'll be back more often now with art (and hopefully photos...my camera program is still not wanting to work).
