"Ive always been partial to clothes with a history" I wrote in Postcard Memoirs.
& so today for the first time I'm wearing the Palm Springs tee that Carlos left in my room at Inn Exile. perhaps my fondness for wearing hand-me-downs comes from my boyhood. my parents always shoppd at garage sales (& still do). & I had one older male cousin some of whose things I'd inherit. there is mystery in stepping into clothes of another intrigue in imagining where those clothes have been what was done by the men while wearing them.
