Her fingers were sticky from the grapes she could not stop eating, but really, it was the reminiscing. She wasn’t sure how something could feel gritty and sticky at the same time, and as she ran her fingers over each other, she noticed how uneven her nails were. There was one that was only half bitten. Goodness, her attention span…

Was it meant to be like this? She needed to wash her hands because the light was begging for attention. But as she watched, the light seeped outside, swirling like smoke around the garden.
She sat, mesmerised, while she finished biting her nails.

    This reminded me of a movie scene, maybe with Audrey Hepburn or Joan crawford actually. (My father was an old movie buff, we watched them endlessly before he died)
    I loved it, and I know it’s very currently relevant. Lol

        None, lol. But like it could have been one

        It wasn’t over acting when they did it. And frankly, I think the art began that way. That’s why it’s called drama.🤷‍♀️ I think it’s far more entertaining than the things we have to watch that are made in my generation. You want to be entertained, they were doing that for us.
        And for that matter, people are ridiculously dramatic in real life, lol, just like those elegant women and men of those old films.

          Don’t get me wrong, there are a lot of old ones I adore. I find it fascinating, the way they went through this kind of transition phase…like they were finding their feet going from stage productions to movie making, some of them seem so much like plays, with the “over acting” that was needed etc. (Sometimes, I really am thinking, why the heck are they yelling so much… 🤓)
          I watched an old one recently with my mother, with Katherine Hepburn and Spencer Tracy, one i had never seen, and it was so intelligently written and acted…darn, wish I could remember what it was called.
          And the atmospheric effects used…

          And thank you.
          (I loved Audrey Hepburn. When I was little, my beautiful mother reminded me of her. ❤)

    This little vignette hangs heavily in my thoughts, like a cluster of sun enriched vine dwelling “sugar bubbles”. Thank you for transporting me away from the polar climate with something so visceral and …. sticky! 🙂
