little boxes

la verità è noiosa, amico mio

Stills selected from Paolo Sorrentino's Le conseguenze dell'amore
La cosa peggiore che può capitare ad un uomo che trascorre molto tempo da solo è quella di non avere immaginazione. La vita, già di per sè noiosa e ripetitiva, diventa in mancanza di fantasia uno spettacolo mortale.

wishing i could freeze time

Beautiful days. Every single one. Today my parents stopped by to visit me on their way back to Portland. It was perfect. We went to Ballard. I can see myself living in Ballard. Or somewhere like it.

As it turns out, this little studio apartment has the most spectacular view of the sky. It seems there's always some fantastic cloud formation. I can't do the shapes, the colours justice. The deepest periwinkles layered like a cut-out over the most brilliant white, with just a small portion fading between the two. I love the way the airplanes flying over the lake catch the setting sunlight. I love how everything is crystal-clear.
