aspiration/inspiration?


this photo . . . flawless.
their marriage? must be pretty close to that as well,
together as long as they have been, in the industry they are in . . . a testament.

so while everything about this moment (her headscarf, the swimsuit pattern, the dog (!), his buddha necklace) is hypnotic in it's language of aspiration (this is our moment, this is our life, this is our statement), it's the reality that has endured that is the real inspiration.

Goodness, they're beautiful. I once watched an interview with them in which they were asked the secret to their marriage's longevity. Paul said something along the lines of how in this society we tend to throw so many perfectly good things away. So instead of doing that with their marriage, they just recycled each other over and over. I love that.
