Marina and Ulay

“Sometimes when I can’t sleep I look for interesting stuff on youtube. Have you heard of Marina and Ulay? Marina and Ulay met as young aspiring artists in their twenties. They spent the next decade and a half living out of their car, traveling around creating art until Ulay cheated on her and got the other woman pregnant. By the early 80’s they had decided to break up but to commemorate their relationship, their breakup needed to be memorable. So Marina and Ulay went to opposite ends of the Great Wall in China and the plan was to walk the wall, meet in the middle, and bid each other farewell forever. They walked the wall for three months until meeting in the center, said goodbye and never saw or spoke to each other again….

…Until 2012 when Marina decided to do an art installation called ‘The Artist is Present’ in which she invited strangers to stare into each others eyes. Love is a beast…”

Dearest Lindsey,

Hello my lovely turtle dove. I am going to tell you some very special top secret things that I want you to keep in your pocket when you are away. Here we go:

1. You are SO BEAUTIFUL!

2. You are one of the most gracious women I have ever met.

3. You are an amazingly loyal and steadfast wife.

4. You are an ENDURING and PATIENT mother.

5. You make great kale avocado salad.

6. You always give me my favorite CocoMayan spice tea WHENEVER I ASK and you even bought me three boxes for my birthday.

7. You always call and check on me when I’m being a moody isolationist.

8. You have an incredible heart.

9. We have matching curly hair probs.

10. And matching YOU KNOW WHATS 😁

11. You are always kind and warm to me even when I don’t deserve it. Especially when I don’t deserve it.

I love you so much, literally with all my heart. I am so so sad to not have you in my life anymore in an immediate way. But I am also excited for your family and your future– your future as a mother AND your future as “Lindsey”, separate from your role as mother or wife. I believe in you and your talents immensely. Honestly.

I will think about you often and plan hypothetical trips to visit you at least twice a day for the foreseeable future.

Love, forever and ever, your best friend,

Liz

I want to claw my way back into the past

Is this true?

Maybe back to 1995

or something.
