We wanted to be in the movie Marie Antoinette. We wanted to wear white dresses and lay in an open field and be around flowers. We were barefoot. The time of day made the tops of the trees gold. It didn't matter we weren't in the movie because we were between hills, amongst trees, and free to be contained in the moments of what we escaped...everything else outside on the outside. And being contained in that moment was the most free I've ever felt.April 25, 2012 Like Add a Comment
