Quietly, so as not to wake the butterflies

Quietly, so as not to wake the butterflies

The hothouse air was warm and humid and thick with the smell of plants. Hundreds of butterflies flitted in and out of sight like short-lived punctuation marks in a stream of consciousness without beginning or end. Whenever she came in here, Aomame felt as if she had lost all sense of time. –  Haruki Murakami, 1Q84
“Aerul din sera era cald si umed, incarcat de miresme. Fluturii se iteau din loc in loc, ca niste semne de punctuatie trecatoare intr-un flux al constiintei fara inceput si fara de sfarsit. De fiecare data cand intra in sera, Aomame simtea ca pierde notiunea timpului.” – Haruki Murakami, 1Q84

I felt that this quote goes perfectly with the concept of this post. I underlined it when I first read the book, as I thought it was a such a delicate and gracefully surreal image. As I was editing the photos, I suddenly remembered this quote and I couldn’t believe how well it fit.

And if you read the book, I think you’ll agree with me that maybe this outfit is something that Aomame would wear..it’s quite simple and clean-cut. I do have more accessories than she’d wear, though. I imagine that the suit that she’s wearing more than one time in the book is something like this one, don’t you think? Here is the quote that describes it: Aomame wore a beige spring coat over her green light wool Junko Shimada suit. A black leather bag hung over her shoulder, and her shoulder-length hair was impeccably trimmed and shaped. She wore no accessories of any kind.
