E and I moseyed around East 6th, the weekend before last.
full of grace

His name is Yagi. He looks like he should be able to talk.

holy spirits
We sing No One in the car together w the windows down, taking turns w the verses.
Look out Judds!

brightened corners
There is a group of graffiti kids who rool South Austin.
I want to be a graffiti kid dammit, but I don't know how to make friends with them.
There is one who I am contacts w on flickr, but he would probly laugh at me
if i ask to join his graffiti club. :(((
I have a really dumb fantasy about bringing a can of paint w me, and just
walking up to them and joining in like SUP.
But then the fantasy sometimes turns bad, and they shank me
and spray a mustache on my face.

mama may have

domestically inclined daughter mine, who alphabetizes all the movies "for fun."

heartbreak hotel
I wonder if they have a honeymoon suite.

southern girl

i like how they left the ivy

unless you are boring


can't remember artist's name :(

lost pines (6)
Then today we hiked Lost Pines.
I was inspired by [ profile] mojodragonfly's recent post on this trail,
being a gulf state girl. It was stunning how this park is hidden away
and such a contrast to the surrounding environment.
The smell of the trees and clay was enough to get me teary w nostalgia.

lost pines
The forest floor is rust red, covered in pine needles.


babe's eye view
Deep hunter green fronds.

lost pines (4)

still life

which end is yr butt?
I wonder what kind of wings he will have...


red creek

The needles fall down onto everything and get caught on the branches. Pinecicles.


last leg

lost pines (3)
Surreal how this place looks straight out of my childhood
and happens to be only 45 minutes away.


so yeah...

I hope you are all well and happy.

I bet the graffiti kids would be proud to have you!

Lost Pines is gorgeous. Like a dreary fairy tale.

Hope you're well and happy, too, m'love.

the graffiti kids might push me down n make me eat a rock! i don't look very tough at all. :(

and the forest is very much like a dreary fairy tale. that's a good description. it gets really dark in the pines, the way they tower down.

and we are doing very nicely, miss pretty. thank yooou.

why do you think they call it Lost Pines?

Date: 2009-11-30 02:41 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
i think it is because the pines are so out of place in this area. the park is on a strange plot of land where the soil is acidic enough for them to grow.

i've only really seen them in my home state, hundreds of miles away.

They can't be all that messed up if they are giving propers to Miss Day.
Get a bird hunter's coat (for the huge pockets) so you can hold four cans on each side. Be bravado (with some Haggrid figure looking on the first day). They'll probably make you queen of their universe if you just show up a lot.

Really digging on the lion and tiger over bones picture.

You make your home region sound like the Rocky Mountains with all the terain ironed relatively flat.

i never said they were messed up. but just very very cool. and i am very not cool. it's a whole different medium that terrifies me like watercolor or oils! i'm afraid they would be able to tell i feigned confidence. :/

me TOO about the lion n tiger. i like that the tiger is the girl.

the only thing different about my childhood forest and the one in the fotos is that this one is over small hills. wears me OUT.

I's scared of acrylics! Technically, I use them all the time.

Why do I keep my studio cleaner than my house?

There's even some kind of pup tentacle in there.

my imagination takes OFF, girl. it always steers to the worst case scenario.

and thanks!
every now and then i see the young woman in E's face and i'm shocked! i need to take some fotos of her just relaxed, when she's not being a cute little girl so much. that's when it really comes out.

The graffiti kids in town have
gotten a LOT better since the
days of HI HOW ARE YOU.

I've never heard of Lost Pines,
only Lost Maples, which is a
bit further away. Are you from
the Piney Woods?

no doubt! i still have some old fotos of behind Mojo's Daily Grind that are pretty amazing.

i'm not from a formally named Piney Woods. but i'm from woods that are piney!
