Sunday bloody Sunday

I wake up on Sunday to the sound of ambulances on 5th, the sirens pierce through my ears like a laser. It's close to 2 PM, my head about to burst open, Chloe still sleeps in the arms of the semi celebrity she wore down the night before (I'm not naming names). I remember lights, arched backs under damp clothing and music, then a hazy fog and skyscrapers tumbling down on me while we fled somewhere in a taxi.

I get up, read wonderful things written about me, then spend the rest of the day wrapped up in a cashmere blanket awaiting the next episode of Mad Men. Chloe stretched out like a cat on the sofa, she took his number as a gesture but threw it away the minute he left. "I want to be Don Draper" she sighs, "only in lace".

And we start fantasizing about the lady in black. Chloe calls her Louise, she lives alone somewhere on the Upper East Side in an apartment dressed in empty bookshelves and dusty portrait paintings. She's afraid of the dark, consumed by a secret so terrifying that it kills everything that comes too close, including a spectacularly elegant Siamese cat named Coco, now buried under a Cherry tree in Central Park. If only it were true.

  9. I'm intrigued by the lady in black. I think that would make a fantastic short story, or a novel. ;)

  10. I always thought that, if I didn't find my childhood dream of true love, I might become the lady in black. Except my bookshelves would be full, full of the tales I always wanted to live in instead.

  11. Nice little bit of writing here. Not particularly fond of the title however as I'm Irish. I was 10 years old in 1972 on the day known as Bloody Sunday and none of us were lounging about in cashmere when the British lined our men up and shot them to death. In your bio you claim you taste like revolution. Revolution left a taste like sour piss in my mouth and in the mouth of every Irishman.

  17. Amazing photos! The lady with the mask on is so much sexier than any nude woman that's for sure. There really is something to the idea that mystery is sexy!

  23. Oh how I've missed your writing. I'm so busy these days that I forget the intriguing stuff - stories and mysteries, like you are. Thank you for the comment & following me. Now I'm following you so wont lose so easily.
    (I had to read the previous comments, too. The one about short story sounds interesting, and you girls should definitely think about that while dreaming.:) Lovely photos too, as always. I love orchids and would die if ever got to go to NY.
