Inspired By.




Today is a good day, friends. It's Friday and I leave to go back to Michigan tomorrow morning for an exclusive visit just to celebrate my mom and all she's done for me. Another reason to be happy: today feels like May - sunny and 65 degrees for once! And despite an impromptu outfit change at the last second [the result of a bad incident involving sour milk in an iced coffee that wound up on my white blouse] I am loving my outfit today, which always makes my day more upbeat. And I found a new album to fall in love with. And I've drafted four poems since Monday, one of which I posted yesterday. And I have a new idea for a weekly post that I will be implementing sometime over the weekend or next week.

For now, I'll leave you with links to some posts that fueled some creative sparks for me this week:

I love magnolia blossoms. Gorgeous photo above found here.

Some really important thoughts on creativity: A creator doesn't just talk about their work. They work. [I struggle with this issue daily.]


I sometimes feel this way, too.

I've posted this sweet wallpaper on my desktop as a reminder: to worry is a waste of time, energy and resources.

Further proof of those eight steps: Jessica has been style-blogging for four years now, but it's been a long process of growth. See the evolution of her personal style and blogging here.


And a beautiful depiction of life's complex symmetries found here. I dare you not to tear up.


Happy weekend, friends.

I watched that video on the Radio Lab site. My trans radar is always piqued. I was struck by the transguy and transwoman they juxtapose in the video, followed by the men's and women's bathroom signs.

The symmetry video is so powerful, especially the last shot with the baby and the man. I see that the older man is crying out in his own way yet we cannot hear him. It's very emotionally touching and I can't help but wonder if that's what life is like at the end.
On a lighter note: Fleet foxes is awesome. I think I had vaguely heard of them before but thanks for the link, I love new music! Hope you had a fantastic weekend! xo
