This Morning.

This morning was something. A little snow
lay on the ground. The sun floated in a clear
blue sky. The sea was blue, blue-green,
as far as the eye could see.
Scarcely a ripple. Calm. I dressed and went
for a walk__ determined not to return
until I took in what Nature had to offer.
I passed close to some old, bent-over trees.
Crossed a field strewn with rocks
where snow had drifted. Kept going
until I reached the bluff.
Where I gazed at the sea, and the sky, and
the gulls wheeling over the white beach
far below. All lovely. All bathed in a pure
cold light. But, as usual, my thoughts
began to wander. I had to will
myself to see what I was seeing
and nothing else. I had to tell myself this is what
mattered, not the other. (And I did see it,
for a minute or two!) For a minute or two
it crowded out the usual musings on
what was right, and what was wrong__ duty,
tender memories, thoughts of death, how i should treat
with my former wife. All the things
I hoped would go away this morning.
The stuff I live with every day. What
I've trampled on in order to stay alive.
But for a minute or two I did forget
myself and everything else. I know I did.
For when I turned back I didn't know
where I was. Until some birds rose up
from the gnarled trees. And flew
in the direction I needed to be going.

-Raymond Carver

Hi there,

I hope this finds you all happy and healthy.
Along with this sunshine comes summer sales, which means
our markdowns have begun!  We've made good use of the red pens around here...
Most of the clothing in the shop (and online) has been marked down 30%.
Previously marked down clothing has been reduced to 50-65% off.
And there are new deliveries still on the way...
We've just received deliveries from WWake, Monica Castiglioni, Zoe Chicco,
Kowtow, Ashish, Pip Squeak Chapeau, Kristensen du Nord, Modaspia and Drifter.
We hope to see you soon.
Enjoy your summer and each other.
All the best,
