Today I am feeling tired. I woke up tired and have been fighting to keep going all day long. I know that it is a mixture of some personal stuff we’re going through right now, which I can’t wait to be over and done with, and also the heat that has descended on the islands these past few days (and that’s bound to start lifting in about 4 months. Oh joy.). On days like this I find myself drawn to food (obviously) and images of beautiful objects or people. Today I ended up looking at these pictures of Cate Blanchett and almost feeling pain at the beauty of this woman.
I first developed my girl crush on her when I saw her in Elizabeth back in 1998. I remember pining after her red hair and thinking I’d never have the courage to dye mine that colour. Boy was I wrong! The film where she swept me away, however, was The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. There isn’t one single instant when she is not breathtakingly beautiful. Sigh.
