I wanted to add some beauty into the world today so I compiled some photos I’ve taken in the last two months. Most of these plants are just a walk away but for some I had to literally stop and smell the roses.
I spent a lot of time planting mostly flowers this year and not so many vegetables. I think they will pay off over time and that thought pleases me very much. I know that it’s almost the cooler season here and as much as I dislike that – I am cold-blooded – I know I have something to look forward to in the spring.
I have taken a lot of time off Instagram and facebook and replaced all that mindless scrolling with other activities. Mainly, I have been trying to read a lot more with all that time. I know there are a lot of benefits to reading books and in this hyper digital age, it feels more crucial that we – no I – put that shit away and hide in a book. I have learnt a lot from social media and read a lot of interesting things but that’s all I’ve done…surface stuff.
I also remember how much I love watching regional cinema so that’s another of my goals, to watch moe independent movies. This is all in preparation for something and nothing at all. I want to feel like I’m in college again, waiting to soak in ideas like a sponge.
