Heathcliff...


"I am Heathcliff! He's always, always on my mind..."
-Emily Bronte "Wuthering Heights."

A copy of Wuthering Heights, weathered in the garden for a year and a half. I'm so happy I left this out all that time ago, it now fits seamlessly in to my "Oracle" project. As it dries it starts to look more like a book again, the pages curl up, the print becomes visible and the soil crumbles away. I'm not sure what to do with it now, perhaps theres a place for it in the museum piece.

I love Wuthering Heights, although I haven't read it in years, but that type of love, that narrative isn't what I want to do with this project. They say you have to be young to fall in love with Wuthering Heights, to want that kind of destructive relationship. I think I'm well past that, give me a Darcy rather than a Heathcliff any day...

Today I love tea and breakfast for lunch, my long lost claddagh ring and long lost friends. I love Autumn and filtered golden light and as always I hate regrets. The woman I want to be has long dark hair, she smells like oranges and dark chocolate and that hurt in her soul doesn't keep her up all night. Give me time...
