Tone of the Day: Aretha Franklin


Young woman in love. Aretha brings it back to the essentials: A woman fluttered and lightened by the idea of love. I am nostalgic for that early 20’s high of love and lust. Bus rides to watch the sunset in San Francisco. Reading novels under trees.  A summer romance in the Costa Brava. A long-distance relationship with a Moroccan. Memories…and the deep commitment to fully express my very own idea of love. Fun in the form of love letters and bedside promises. Give a girl a dream. Give a girl some romance and she is the most invincible creature in the universe…
