A Mormon Woman Named Estelle...
This is not Estelle -- I hope she has a pool
"I painted over ten thousand paintings
Sad ones, funny ones, dark ones, and light ones
I've done haystacks
And rich old ladies by their pools
Wearing nothing but a scarf
I've painted everything there was to paint
Now it was time to sit back
Hang out at club med
Get on the internet
Take stock of what I've done"
Sitting here updating a list of blogs I can't stand when I just remembered where that came from. Dan Bern's, "...rich old ladies by their pools wearing nothing but a scarf" has me wondering why Hermes hasn't taken that image and run with it. Maybe I can convince them.
I remember the first girl I held hands with was Cheryl Stewart in 7th grade. I've tried six times to write what that felt like. I give up. Except this. I couldn't believe she wanted to hold my hand.
This aquarium has lulled me into a trance and this song always makes me laugh and cry and sometimes both at once. I lost my dog in a divorce. That really sucked.
