desktop quote & manifesto monday : safe to go outside

4.04.2011




yes, i too enjoyed my conversation with this optimistic wonder-woman over the weekend.
it certainly helps to surround yourself with loving people who are so willing to cheer you on
and listen as you ramble on about dreams and frustrations and how you're going to change the world...even if it's just your own little world.

today i am thinking about taking care of ourselves, being gentle and kind.
i hope this blog is a place where you can feel safe,
where you can escape feeling like you have to have the latest fashions or designs,
where you can find joy in the little ordinary things that are full of wonder.
i hope it is a place where you come to remind yourself to
be gentle and kind to yourself and to those all around you.

i hope you feel, today, and all of your days, that it is safe
to step outside into a world of dreams, and it is safe to try,
to fall, and to pick yourself and your friends up when all seems too hard.

here's to a new week.

It is. This blog I mean, is one of the safest places, one of the most gentle ones.

Amen to being kind and gentle to yourself. I am resolved to be more so, to fill myself (as you are resolved to do) with more fruit and vegetable goodness and then maybe, just maybe, the ennui and heaviness that has dogged me since the beginning of the year will life. I enjoy your blog very much and your wonderful photos!
