She comes from foreign lands

The sound of silence echoes through the walls. Chloe is on the naked wooden floor in my room, flipping through the pages of an Italian fashion magazine from the 60s. "How is it possible to miss a time you didn't even live in", she sighs, running her slender fingers over a black and white picture of Penelope Tree. I tell her I never do but I'm lying. I don't know why but my mind is elsewhere, and those hypothetical discussions about what life could have been like, "if only...", usually end in strange places.

Chloe looks up at me for a second, then returns to her magazine. If nothing else she looks fantastic in her little Calvin Klein nightgown. Transparency is my favorite color.

  2. Love that last line, made me giggle :P
    I'm the same, I miss the 40's, my grandparents weren't even alive then. I just love everything about the decade. <3
    Hope all is well.

  5. I agree with you. I always find myself in those thoughts especially when I watch movies in older era's or read books from those era's. But then get this weird strange feeling.
    Love the photo by the way.

  18. I miss the 90s. I was alive during that decade, but I was too young to really understand the essence of the 90s.
