(I think I made you up inside my head.)

one of my most favourite images ever ever ever. (in TIME magazine)

"I touch you, I am created in you
somewhere as a complex
filament of light

You rest on me and my shoulder holds
your heavy unbelievable
skull, crowded with radiant
suns, a new planet, the people
submerged in you, a lost civilization
I can never excavate:

my hands trace the contours of a total
universe, its different
colours, flowers, its undiscovered
animals, violent or serene

its other air
its claws

its paradise rivers."

— Margaret Atwood, from “I Was Reading a Scientific Article”

That time magazine picture is indeed SO GOOD! But next to that, I love this collection of photos and memories. The macarons look colourful and yummy. And everything looks like bliss, or at least from my perspective! :o
