"flowers are a proud assertion
that a ray of beauty outvalues
all the utilities of the world"
-ralph waldo emerson

every now and then, don't forget
to stop and smell the roses

destination: summer
you are so close, i can almost feel you

the time of relaxation, friends, and life itself
i'm ready; are you?

just as the seasons change, so do our lives.
well, what if we are afraid?
what if we are already satisfied with the now?

in the words of marilyn ferguson, maybe
"it's not so much that we're afraid of change
or so in love with the old ways,
but it's that place in between that we fear...
it's like being between trapezes...
There's nothing to hold on to"

if we recognize this fear + embrace it,
maybe we won't be so afraid anymore.

hold fast to love

no one can guarantee that love will be perfect.
it is flawed, difficult, and frustrating;
but at the same time it is breath taking,
beautiful, and irreplaceable.

love, in its many forms, is why we are all here.
isn't it?
i think what everyone wants most is for somebody to
want them back, be it a friend, a soulmate, or a family member.

so let's hold onto the love we have, for
it's the most precious thing there is.

wouldn't it be nice to get away from it all?
to fall into a rabbit hole and get lost in a
new fantasy world?

if only things were that easy.
in this world, full of chaos and confusion,
people are constantly trying to make sense of it all.

well, let's be different and just accept it.
life is absurd, and things don't make sense.
we don't have to know everything right now;
we don't even have to know where we want to go.

let's just take everything one step at a time.
come what may.
