my white room


i never saw a moor—
i never saw the sea—
yet know i how the heather looks
and what a billow be.

julia was giving us a new theme -
underwater life and for me, again
alive and reflected in these giant 
pacific whales living as water goes by,










я очень люблю воду. и раньше совсем не умела плавать,
а только немного держалась на воде, когда знала, что дно
рядом. потом случайно, в лето, когда я приехала на онежское
озеро, на наше озеро, в котором берега видны, острова и вдоль
берега длинная трава, я первый раз поплыла, не касаясь берега,
далеко и спокойно, 


после этого раза я не устаю на воде, как не устаю идти долго
по лесу или улице в любую погоду. так для меня вода стала
совсем родной.

    Really beautiful.
