sunday drive..

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

is that still a thing?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

a neighborhood story

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

secret gardens and satellite dishes

 

 

“I always wanna sit down with my mom and talk bout old neighborhood stories.”
Jordan Hoechlin

 

 

 

 

drive in

 

 

 

 

summer nights
we’d pile in the back of dad’s station wagon
in our pajamas
equipped with blankets, pillows and paper bags full of junk food
and fall asleep halfway through the feature

 

 

 

 

 

 

boyhood

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

“Will the freshness, lightheartedness, the need for love, and strength of faith which you have in childhood ever return? What better time than when the two best virtues — innocent joy and the boundless desire for love — were the only motives in life?”

Leo Tolstoy

“My attachment to the state is that of a barnacle to a ledge, the pull of the moon to the earth. Maine, because of its singular and profound beauty, is a place of worship without walls. I love it so.”
