Drive

“The relationship was really very good, because it was based on something more that just emotional needs…of course, you do your best to destroy each other without knowing it.”

Quote by O’Keeffe found in How Georgia Became O’Keeffe by Karen Karbo

I have spent the day bouncing between New York City and Abuiquiu, New Mexico, looking for clues as to your daily life. It will take me 12.5 hours to drive to Ghost Ranch. It would have taken you 31 hours or more from New York in 1929. I heard you learned to drive and washed the car in the yard in the nude with your traveling companion that summer that you found your heart/home in New Mexico away from your husband. I am spinning with skirts and skulls and distant points that don’t seem entirely clear and I am loving you. I think today I really began the journey with you, suddenly it feels like you are nearby and I am alive and a little giddy. I am going to San Francisco this weekend, and will look for you there.

  1. “I am spinning with skirts and skulls and distant points that don’t seem entirely clear and I am loving you.” I have been discovering that relationships are gerunds. Not a state, but an ongoing process without beginning or end.

  2. Hi Alice,

    Lovely share on relationships. If there is not some destroy, there is not engagement. And love is actually a seven letter word, “loving.”

    Keep on keeping on.

    Chris
