1. Oregon is all dressed up in beautiful springtime blossoms. Cheers to spring and wildflowers!


  2. "Once the realization is accepted that even between the closest human beings infinite distances continue, a wonderful living side by side can grow, if they succeed in loving the distance between them which makes it possible for each to see the other whole against the sky."
    — Rainer Maria Rilke (via emotional-algebra)

  5. After a heavy rain this morning, I walked out into the garden.  And to my surprise, I sighted a garden nymph asleep upon a raindrop…




  8. Things I have learned in life so far

    by Stefan Sagmeister

    Everybody who is honest is interesting.

    Complaining is silly. Either act or forget. 

    Thinking life will be better in the future is stupid. 

    I have to live now. 

    Being not truthful works against me. 

    Helping other people helps me. 

    Organizing a charity group is surprisingly easy. 

    Everything I do always comes back to me. 

    Drugs feel great in the beginning and become a drag later on. 

    Over time I get used to everything and start taking it for granted.

    Money does not make me happy.

    Traveling alone is helpful for a new perspective on life. 

    Assuming is stifling. 

    Keeping a diary supports my personal development. 

    Trying to look good limits my life. 

    Worrying solves nothing.

    Material luxuries are best enjoyed in small doses. 

    Having guts always works out for me.

  9. "Life is a series of natural and spontaneous changes. Don’t resist them; that only creates sorrow. Let reality be reality. Let things flow naturally forward in whatever way they like."
    — Lao Tzu

  10. Time to get back to a drawing a day. Or a doodle a day. Or just something to get creative-juices-flowing-a-day.

    I’m enamored by these swirly patterns lately.  I dream of having a skirt sewn in a print like this.


  11. "Take a lover who looks at you like you are magic."
    — Frida Kahlo

  12. "You cannot get through a single day without having an impact on the world around you. What you do makes a difference, and you have to decide what kind of difference you want to make."
    — Jane Morris-Goodall

  13. Moonshine.



  14. "“Each person comes into this world with a specific destiny - he or she has something to fulfill, some message that has to be delivered, some work that has to be completed. You are not here accidentally - you are here meaningfully. There is a purpose behind you. The whole intends to do something through you.”
    - Osho"

  15. If assembling clothes could be seen as an extension of what plane one’s psyche’s on, then by this standard my psyche’s in deep a rut.  A rut that looks like a knock-off version of Ellen Degeneres’s wardrobe. Day-to-day you could find me wearing variations of collared shirts with a sweater. 

    Monday I’m feeling quite confident and original in my quasi-menswear-inspired ensemble. Come Friday, I begin feeling like a cartoon character who opens their closet *pauses/reflects* and then chooses the exact same thing they’re always wearing.

    But this Friday something quite exotic occurred during my usual wake-up-look-like-death-and-put-something-on routine.  

    It was inspired by Ann Lamott’s advice to writers in a creative rut. Keep it simple and pose the question: what would you do if today was your last day on earth?

    Surveying the variations of V-neck sweaters, I posed that question to myself.  Humm..okay..last day on earth..well, I probably wouldn’t be so cranky and ridiculously self-loathing.  I would definitely wear THAT.

     And I reached for the hanger with the polkadot dress.
