A Victorian Love Affair in the 21st Century

“First you need only look: Notice and honor the radiance of Everything about you... Play in this universe. Tend All these shining things around you: The smallest plant, the creatures and objects in your care. Be gentle and nurture. Listen...”

Trash and treasures

just some victor records on a stone wall

it's all in the details

little fairy flowers

I found this Victor Victrola Record binder sitting outside the shop when I came in today. Just like this; I wondered briefly as the shutter snapped, if someone had placed it like this to take some pictures, or if it was placed there, forgotten, and the breeze had blown it open.

The record in the sleeve is called "Carry me back to Old Virginny" A song that was written by James Bland, a well known African American composer in the 1800's. The song tells the trouble many slaves faced as they were freed, as they had little safety or family aside from life on the plantation that they had left. A modified version of this song was used as Virginia's state song, until 1997 when it was deemed too racially offensive.

This is the version on the record,

Cambridge by Rainy Night

An old friend from high school got a job in Boston and threw a party in her new place. It was cold and rainy outside, and everyone forgot their raincoats. Inside it was hot and muggy; with a back porch that perched at such a perilous angle we were all convinced it would come crashing down by the end of the night. So my pictures aren't so great (this is your warning) just imagine you've had enough that the cold raindrops don't really bother you anymore.
