Devil is in the details

It's on 6th that I bump into them, mother and Frank. I've spent the morning walking around in Midtown on my own, he asks me to join them for lunch and mother only objects with her uncomfortable body language. I pretend not to see it.

He's different, there's something about him and not just in the way he looks at me with that secret Gioconda smile. Mother's expensive male friends all wear black suits and plain shirts picked out by their wives, but not him. The cream colored Paul Smith jacket and Ferragamo loafers give him an air of individuality and self-awareness, and it suits him well.

We talk about communication and I suddenly hear myself asking mother what was in that letter. "Oh, nothing in particular" she says but the fraction of a second it takes for her to answer speaks volumes. Frank looks curious but doesn't ask, at least not while I'm there.

  2. The devil IS in the details. I think details are my favorite. Maybe a way of fulfilling my childhood dream of being a spy. Frank sounds dangerous.

  19. Thanks a lot for your comments! It's nice to stay in touch with other bloggers!
    I guess, I wouldn't watch gossip girl neither, if I was you. It's hard to describe this in English... You know the New Yorker upper class, but we don't, so we get curious (because it's kind of everybodies dream). You know the reality and most of the TV shows don't show the reality.
    I hope you get the message :)

  40. Frank seems mysterious, but it's very good that he's different from the other snobs your mother tends to hang out with. Your photography is beautiful as always. And yes, I've seen S's blog! You guys are both amazing.

    May the force be with you.

  46. Hello dear, thank you for telling me about her blog. I fell in love with her words.

    ReplyDelete
  47. I am always impressed by individuality in a man but then again I do like a man in uniform. I guess it just comes down to the personality that is peeking out from the outfits.

    You seem to have a lot there in NYC in which to find a lot of inspiration. Maybe some day I will actually make it there for a visit, but until then I guess I am lucky that you and others are willing to share your insight.

    Thanks so much for playing in this weeks Theme Thursday.

    God bless.
