ARCO~I have got to say I felt your eyes on me ... It's been a long time since someone got caught looking at me, like you were looking at me...You smell my Narciso Rodriguez cologne which is the sense tied most closely to human memory. Now you remember how it feels...
as part of my stay here at the sou'wester i've been creating some new jewelry designs, each is still one-of-a-kind, of course! i'm photographing them while staying here, and putting them up for sale in my etsy shop here
i'm so excited to announce that at the outset of my residency at sou'wester lodge, matt suplee and i were accepted to be part of the hdts (high desert test sites) 2013 program! here's our blog about the project!
so part of the residency at sou'wester will be making fragrance combinations, one of which might be part of the souvenircollab piece we create as well!
i'm excited to share that i'll be doing a residency at sou'wester lodge in seaview, wa in early april creating a signature room scent for them as part of my stay there. i was thinking this would be a good chance to explore some site-specific scents
in preparation, i'm reading at home by bill bryson, looking at the history of architecture, and our relationship to space. he even included stories about ambergris, which is one of my favorite perfume ingredients, and anecdotes about the history of spice importation through travel
Fragrance of the World - m4w - 28
your soft skin
your lips delicately
brushing my canvas
your nose touching my nose
the smell of your hair
the taste of your neck.
Kissing the fleshy parts of your fingers
dancing my hands in a slow waltz
across your breasts and down
to where your body curves
like a wine glass.
Seeing you with more than my eyes
touching you with more than my body.
Cheeks like flowers,
shortness of breath,
the world discarded.
Of all the waves in the ocean,
I recognize only your wave
as hand in hand our bodies collide
like two champagne flutes
in a toast to sparkling rapture.
And afterwards I'll hold you
like a rare musical instrument,
listening to only the sound of you
as you inhale and exhale
the fragrance of the world
If I was granted a wish to do anything for a day... - m4w...it would be to spend that entire day with you at Disneyland again. But, just me and you this time. Just to spend the entire day, playing, having fun and spending it with each other at a magical place. <3 section="">
to the girl that waved at my at carols jrs no lacster by market st - m4w
