The confession of an apricot | Carl Adamshick
muscovite: I love incorrectly. There is a solemnity in hands, the way a palm will curve in accordance to a contour of skin, the way it will release a story. This should be the pilgrimage.

I’ve never done it before, however as a child I had an unpleasant experience with rollerblading (I actually managed to shatter my coccyx) and so was apprehensive over this new plan. Over the weekend, several friends convinced me to agree coming and so I (thought) I had no problem. I couldn’t even make it out of my...

lookedlikelaughing: violent violet with grey, then blue, a deep, crystal blue. lighter greys, then neutral white dipped in with a fine tip brush, forming a seeping, slow spreading fade: finite, precise, a wonderful tint of blue with elephant’s skin in its pores, and soft caribbean light, oh so golden, turquoise…

All of a sudden, Volvo called to me out the window. Now,...
