Press close, bare-bosomed Night!
Press close, magnetic,
nourishing Night!
Night of south winds! Night of the large, few stars!
Still, nodding Night! Mad, naked, Summer Night!
Walt Whitman

  1. I miss me some mad summer nights... is life so frenetic that they're passing by me? Or is summer so damn weird this days, that we no longer have hot crazy nights ending with us looking at the stars? Or am I getting old? You got me thinking now...

  4. Beautiful!

    I love the night. I can talk to the moon and stars. And, yes, they talk back to you - you just have to know how to listen.

  8. I love this photo. In the middle of decluttering to create studio space I found an old Walt. Cover crumbling, dust flying, and sweat dripping, I sat on a stack of books and took in his magic. :)
