some like it hot

June 7, 2021

It was hot this weekend, gloriously hot. I noticed an un-peeling in myself and everyone around me. Bare arms, bare faces. Heat has a way of softening us, like butter in the sun. I came across a collection of vintage images this morning that capture the laziness, the lethargy and the yielding that takes place inside our bodies when heat is all around us. A couple sprawls out on a beach in Coney Island, kids lay down by the water in PĆ³voa de Varzim, people sunbathe under the canopy of a tree in Czechoslovakia.
