on soap, yearning, and happiness
This was so beautiful, Kate. We have those beach roses in West Seattle too and am I entirely obsessed with them.
I love your mini essay, Kate! I know that feeling, and reading about your experiences with it made me feel it again. Like a meta-experience. I also know now that the roses in the dunes in front of my house are actually Rosa rugosa, and not Rosa canina as I previously thought :)
Yes please, more like it. I live on an island in the Pacific Northwest. If I didn't live here, I'd probably be in Maine. We have beach roses here too. Apparently they are invasive in the US. But then, aren't we all?
Love this so much. Def want more like it! So good
