follow your inner moonlight; don’t hide the madness.

How terrific!
Initially I didn't realise that the smudge was a pigeon, I think perhaps I thought it was just a giant feather ala Carrie's blue bird in her wedding veil in 'Sex In the City I'. This is a terrific quote and picture, thank you so much,

Bonkers About Buttons said...

sweet - it reminded me of that lovely poem: When I get Old I''ll Wear Purple by Jenny Joseph.

When I am an old woman I shall wear purple
With a red hat which doesn't go, and doesn't suit me.
And I shall spend my pension on brandy and summer gloves
And satin sandals, and say we've no money for butter.

I shall sit down on the pavement when I'm tired
And gobble up samples in shops and press alarm bells
And run my stick along the public railings
And make up for the sobriety of my youth.

I shall go out in my slippers in the rain
And pick the flowers in other peoples' gardens
And learn to spit.

You can wear terrible shirts and grow more fat
And eat three pounds of sausages at a go
Or only bread and pickles for a week
And hoard pens and pencils and beermats and things in boxes.

But now we must have clothes that keep us dry
And pay our rent and not swear in the street
And set a good example for the children.
We must have friends to dinner and read the papers.

But maybe I ought to practice a little now?
So people who know me are not too shocked and surprised
When suddenly I am old, and start to wear purple.
