About    
My name is Rachel and I like to post pretty things, mostly visual poetry.

I suppose I am the only person who will find this blog interesting

... and that's okay.

Overheard at Le Bernardin on West 51st Street
Waitress: Can I offer you a drink before dinner?
Woman: I’ll have an unsweetened iced tea.
Waitress: O.K.
Woman: Do you have free refills?
Waitress: Uh, I’m not sure. I’ll have to check.
Woman: Check, and if you do, then I’ll take it with ice. If you don’t have free refills, I’ll have it with the ice on the side.
Waitress: Got it.

One of my favorite films of 2012. So happy to see Walt Disney Animation Studios put this out there on YouTube for everyone to see.

All this Twinkie news reminded me of this Graham Roumieu cartoon from earlier in the year when Hostess filed for bankruptcy.

I know, I haven’t posted in awhile… it’s been a long, busy Summer. On that note, this is exact way one should get back into Fall blogging… wood pile art with our true leader, and mascot, of all things hipster.
Stay klassy, AJ.

Shoes for the rain
What a beautiful idea. Kiwi, Scottt Wilson created these shoes, to express his passion for walking in the lashing rain. The words only show up when the shoes are drenched. 

This piece was created to express my love of walking in the rain.
But I don’t just mean any rain.
I mean rain rain.
When it’s so damn heavy that you have to walk all hunched over with your hood on, and all you can see are your feet walking along the pavement, watching as your shoes get wetter an wetter until they are soaked through. I find it somewhat cleansing.
The words ‘Water is walked alongside, and loved’ were taken from the poem Lyric by New Zealand poet Dinah Hawken, and as you may have noticed, they only appear when the shoes get wet. Preferably by rain.

“ It’s time to retire the American Dream — or at least give it a long vacation. We ought to drop it from our national conversation. This would be a hardship for politicians and pundits, who use ‘the American Dream’ as a rhetorical workhorse embodying goals embraced by almost all Americans. That’s the problem. The American Dream has become so expansive in its meaning that it stifles honest debate and harms some of the very people it is intended to help. ”
