“It began in mystery, and it will end in mystery, but what a savage and beautiful country lies in between.” — Diane Ackerman
Went on a run to Belle Isle and back on my lunch break today with Caitlin..even though we’re both smelly and sweaty and gross now, it was totally worth it! (Wonder if my co-workers feel the same way?!)
Down by the river I saw this guy I sorta know, a very dark and mysterious guy, who just this past weekend I saw naked. Naked yes, at the Disrobed show at Gallery 5. Didn’t know I was going to see that side of him til I showed up that night to see the exhibit…seemed like it might make things kinda weird for any future encounters..but now that I have seen him again, (fully clothed this time) I realized that just because I’ve seen him with his clothes off doesn’t change the fact that he’s still very mysterious to me and I really don’t know much about him. Which is cool cuz I kinda like it that way.
But it makes me think about the depth of relationships required before you know someone that intimately, or the lack there of that exists a lot of times. After viewing that exhibit I couldn’t really put into words what I thought about it..at the time I didnt really know. Sometimes it takes a while to figure out how you feel about something, but now I think I know what it means to me.
So I gotta thank that mysterious guy I kinda know for unknowingly helping me come to that realization. Gotta say I wasn’t suprised to see his name on the list of models, he’s kinda a walking work of art in my opinion. And I do think there’s something both savage and beautiful underneath all that exposed flesh I saw..but it will always be a mystery to me.
