some days

some days i just get so terribly overwhelmed and i don’t know what i should do.

most days i want to drop everything and just make art, plant things and fold my body in half.

today is just one of those lovely, lazy saturdays where you think a lot about the direction your life is going and what you’re doing about it . . .

i have so much to look forward to in the next few weeks, but all i want in life right now is for time to slow down.

whenever i feel confused, overwhelmed or inspired, i resort to list making.

my list making obsession is something i inherited from my amazingly efficient mother. she always encouraged us to set goals, make lists and carry around scrap paper.

today has been some kind of list making day.

“lists help us manage the chaos of our lives—to impose order, if only for a moment. writing a list clears the mind. … once everything is written down, it’s easier to see which tasks are important and in what order to tackle them. tasks that seem overwhelming look easier when reduced to mere lines on paper.”

& for mac users, growly notes is my new favorite way to make a list

i want to go run outside with my holga for a few hours. . . the sky has cleared and the sun is out again. chilly winter days can be beautiful when the clouds disappear and the sun comes out to play.
