i don't think i'll ever stop being fascinated by edie sedgwick.
you threw the bums a dime in your prime, didn't you?
people'd call, say, "beware doll, you're bound to fall"
you thought they were all kiddin' you
you used to laugh about
everybody that was hangin' out
now you don't talk so loud
now you don't seem so proud
about having to be scrounging for your next meal
how does it feel
to be without a home
like a complete unknown
like a rolling stone?

i have been reading a blog recently that is always beautiful and often profound.
in a similar vein i watched this film for the first time in quite a while.
"i don't know who i am. i'm like cat here. we're a couple of no-name slobs. we belong to nobody, and nobody belongs to us. we don't even belong to each other."
it came to my attention that i spend an awful lot of time wondering what it's like to belong to someone and for someone to belong to you.
"i had fun, but i didn't really have anyone i particularly loved. and i still don't, except for loving friends. but i mean, i haven't been in love with anyone in years and years. but i have a certain amount of faith that it'll come."

"life moves pretty fast. you don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it."
"i just want them to know that they didn't break me."
"we're all pretty bizarre. some of us are just better at hiding it, that's all."
i have a bit of a sunglasses fetish. i bought a pair of rayban clubmaster knock-offs earlier today to add to my collection which is pushing 10 at the moment, not including sunglasses with clear frames because of my secret desire for non-20-20 vision. i love karen walker - a LOT - especially her new collection called (ironically) celebrate the sun.
