all the arts live here

Then, Éowyn of Rohan, I say to you that you are beautiful. In the valleys of our hills there are flowers fair and bright, and maidens fairer still; but neither flower nor lady have I seen till now in Gondor so lovely, and so sorrowful.

Hi me?

Writing exercise No. 1: I remember

*the stairs at the Polynesian Village resort’s pool

*body surfing in the Atlantic

*the grittiness of sand on my skin

*tart lemonade

*eating cotton candy at the circus while watching trapeze artists

*my first communions; grandma ironing my veil

*my baby sister’s birth, a windy October day

*sitting by the fish tanks at the local Polynesian supper club

*my first two piece bathing suit—navy and white stripes, with Looney Tunes characters on the top. Very, very modest. 

*My dad’s reaction to said bathing suit: “You’re not going out in that!”

*Standing on the edge of a diving board, studying the deep blue of the diving well. 

*Losing my firs tooth at Walt Disney World, in a Mickey waffle. 

*waking up with my cousin’s black cat on my chest, eyes wide and suspiciously studying me.

*Driving across the Mississippi River in a minivan, the water turgid and brown.

*Picking corn from a friend’s field. 

*An emerald green dress embedded with tiny sparkles. 

*Watching a hurricane arrive in Delaware, frantic wind and rain

*Introducing a baby to the wide Gulf of Mexico, the warm bath water and sand under her tiny toes. 

*The crisp feel of the air in a hockey arena, and the sound of blades against ice. 

*Learning to slide on the softball field, the white of my pants covered with reddish dirt.

*Coming home from a hot day of working at the pool and having a cool, brilliant diamond placed on my finger, and a question asked. 

*My first time on stage, the lights blinding and the applause riveting. 

*A boy leaning over and kissing my hand. 

*Riding the merry go round at Kennywood in the summer dusk, my hand on the back of my toddler godson’s back. (He didn’t look very sure about this)

*Shooting baskets with the boys in my class at recess in middle school.

*My plaid jumper and peter pan collared uniform blouses, hung neatly in my closet. 

*Yarn tying my braids neatly

*Shucking corn with my cousins on the back deck for a summer barbecue.

Yup. 

Yup. 

My love for Jewels is unbounded.
