lovely photo from a lovely blog: le dans la
in relation to flowering trees, i can’t wait to see pictures of the cherry blossoms over in Korea by my friend Prunae :)also, reminds me of a flowering dogwood photo by another friend, Lems! i couldn’t find the exact photo i was thinking of but here are some equally lovely ones i found on tumblr. the other two photos are from when we roamed around the forest knee high in spring bluebells.
side note: managed to cram in some films during my day and a half of break: Magnolia, Grey Gardens (Maysles brothers), Mid-August Lunch, and Days of Heaven. I just randomly picked them out from the library but they all turned out relating to each other in their own Magnolia-like convergence. Three of the four films dealt directly with senescence and all the films had characters that were living out futures that they never would have predicted for themselves. It made me think about who we expect ourselves to be (and how that really turns out), what it really is to be happy, and caring for people with real love. I know these are three extremely hackneyed topics but the films made me realize even more that I don’t really know much at all. With the little I know, I just want to live simply. Simple living day-by-day without straining at a peek for the future. Setting real-time goals but not trying to plan out my life before reaching those goals first. Being a better listener. Ridding my mind of useless criticism. Organizing my time so hours don’t pass, wasted.. and with that being said.. time for sleep!

talented with the fleurs and funny to boot. her blog always puts me in a good mood,  it shows me that blogging doesn’t have to be about dramatic soliloquies and perfect shiny things (though those flowers really are just dreamy). if she wrote a memoir, i would read it in an instant. so real.
