After the grapes are gone

with one comment

Autumn vinyardThe grapes are fermenting away, sweet and fragrant and ready for drinking this time next year… Nice how the leaves linger on though… I seem to prefer the natural world to the human one more and more… it’s just so much saner, safer. How can a tornado or earthquake compare to the human maelstrom? These days… these days… somehow these are always the days. And all the days. How sweet to stand in a vinyard and close my eyes and inhale slowly and deeply…

Not sure what brought this on… For someone who hates to drive and pretty much refuses – I admit to a fondness for cars and car graveyards. I have no idea what make this was, but just love the curve of this hood ornament.

I rather think the man who drove this car (and it was surely not a woman) despaired of ever owning a fast car, not with a wife and a growing brood all needing shoes and the rent to pay while they tried to save for a down payment. I rather think he polished this ornament and wondered what it would be like to slip behind the wheel of a Jaguar, with a woman like Julie Christie or Rita Tushingham at his side, wearing cool cool shades and put the pedal to the floor. Just once.

Let’s go!

Not sure which part of my imagination this one came from – but I was out for dinner with my daughters and on the ride home it came to me – pretty much just like this, although I thought of a night sky, but once I started working on it, this was obviously the right thing…
