Rest.
Sundays are for chores, rest, and boardgames. Somehow today was a beautiful day, and I spent most of the afternoon inside playing boardgames. The autumn , as much as the weather can be frustrating, can produce some amazing opportunities. It is also a time where I tend to make personal changes to grow as a person. β€’

Orcas Island // summer 2015
(not named after orcas but actually a Spanish dude, contrary to popular belief)

Green & Gold | I have a terrible habit of leaving it until the last second to decide that I want to pull over to take a photo, making Lia brace as I sharply brake and veer off the road. This photo came as a result of one of those times. What did you do for the gram today?

With the record setting rain yesterday, all we want to do tonight is curl up in bed with a good movie and a cup of tea! 🌧️🍡

Day 22: Trail
[I like where this is going, and there's more I want to say better, but #noeditsallowed until November.]
We don't have to walk far
Under the cover of canopy
To find exposure.
Once outside the city,
Outside the usual framework,
Outside the boundaries of polite necessity,
We can truly breathe.
On the trail
I bathe in dust
And my hands converse with trees
When asking for support.
Nursing logs remind us
Where we stand
In an ancient cycle,
And we can confess anything.
Stripped down to our bare humanity.
It's the intimacy
I used to chase in pillow-talk,
But without the dance.
The trail is always a soul's journey,
Whether solo or shared.

Half of me is filled with bursting words and half of me is painfully shy. I crave solitude yet also crave people. I want to pour life and love into everything yet also nurture my self-care and go gently. I want to live within the rush of primal, intuitive decision, yet also wish to sit and contemplate. This is the messiness of life - that we all carry multitudes, so must sit with the shifts. We are complicated creatures, and ultimately, the balance comes from this understanding. Be water. Flowing, flexible and soft. Subtly powerful and open. Wild and serene. Able to accept all changes, yet still led by the pull of steady tides. It is enough.
