~thankful thursday~ surreal chamomile

On pi day, I started typing some gratitude, right in the middle of a month, and with no deadlines or expectations to polish or publish attached. It has quickly developed into a sanity-saving, not-restricted-to-gratitude, self-integrating tool that I am relying on heavily for self-care purposes. I’ve mostly experienced mental health struggles in my life as . . . → Read More: ~thankful thursday~ surreal chamomile

~rainbow mondays~trout lilies and tutus

Rich brought me home this rainbow!

Quinn wrapped up his birthday reading by rainbow candlelight.

Gray, but with rainbow edges if you look closely; my recent days have been spent staring through a microscope at the miracle of life, specifically, arctic cod embryos at 24 hours post-fertilization. Anyone else see a butterfly?

sanctuary

2020 has some built-in requirements for me. It is not so much a list of goals as a list of bare minimums; a quart of tea a day, a beach trip per month, a nap every time I need it, ten minutes of sitting on my butt daily. In 2020, I shall strive for nothing but mediocrity. . . . → Read More: sanctuary

tides

I have always been fascinated with the tides. For me, the place at the edge of the ocean, where the earth, air and water converge, is where the magic and bioluminescence are found. When I was in college, a few of my courses contained lessons on what drives the tides, and while most of the . . . → Read More: tides
