A summer story.
Stills from a dreamed film.
Does the weirdness ever go away?
The feelings and moments leave traces.
Because it’s just too hot.
Taking it easier than ever.
All around me.
Cucumber foot rub, a summer goth look, going commando—and other heat-defying tricks.
They are perfection.
May's theme is HOMESTRETCH.
