I went to a life drawing class tonight. Even before I walked in to the class, it was worth the trip into the city just to see the city lights and the streets under the rain. I wore a scarf around my neck and held an umbrella above me as I watched the headlights of cars guide along the streets as the street lights illuminated light rainfall. The city felt so calm, all this rain and all these streets and buildings in the sky, and these trees that guided my way, reaching out of pavement but born from a soil somewhere underneath. I love this city, cracked pavement for the trees, and tall buildings for the light. Far away, it says: the city is awake.

The class itself was so much more fun than I expected. I might write a post about it tomorrow. For now, I’m really tired. I’ve had a long day of university work and a late afternoon class, but I’m so glad I made the journey for the life drawing class. It was so good not to actually think for two hours in my day, to just do. It was almost like meditation. It was lovely. After the class, it was raining again as I made my way to Melbourne Central. Just outside the station, but undercover, a homeless man sat with a cardboard sign. I walked a few metres and bought him a mocha and a hot Nutella crepe and gave it to him. I went home. I went home tired but happy, these drawings in my backpack but all the same things on my mind.

ok but how olicity and quiver is that civil war poem. im in my feelings

There’s another that really gets to me:

The Avenue

Who has not seen their lover

Walking at ease,

Walking like any other

A pavement under trees,

Not singular, apart,

But footed, featured, dressed,

Approaching like the rest

In the same dapple of the summer caught;

Who has not suddenly thought

With swift surprise:

There walks in cool disguise,

There comes, my heart.

Frances Cornford (1886-1960)
