'...by the sea that was lying down still and green as grass after a night of tar-black howling and rolling...' Dylan Thomas

Today last week I was staying just a stone's throw from Newquay in West Wales, which is one place the poet Dylan Thomas lived during his beautiful but short life. If you've seen the film The Edge of Love it's the village where , close by, Dylan and his wife Caitlin kept a house. Beautiful film, such eye candy. Woolly jumpers, silk kimonos, knee socks, victory rolls, dance halls, poets, afternoon drinking and windswept beaches.

Definitely going to see this...and is the name of your blog inspired by the Donnie Darko line? That's all I think of when I see it!
"This famous linguist once said that of all the phrases in the English language, of all the endless combinations of words in all of history, that Cellar Door is the most beautiful." (Donnie Darko!)

what a dreamy life these characters seem to lead, in these photos.
& they have such great wardrobes to live them in too.

Collie, this Newquay is in West Wales, not the Newquay that's in Cornwall. It's a tiny seaside place not the big surfy town like the Cornish one. Thanks for the comment though!
