This video evokes strong a feeling of adventure and wanderlust. Good thing it's almost summer time!

What Now

This whole album is on repeat at our house. Can't get enough!


This morning the green fists of the peonies are getting ready
to break my heart
as the sun rises,
as the sun strokes them with his old, buttery fingers

and they open —
pools of lace,
white and pink —
and all day the black ants climb over them,

boring their deep and mysterious holes
into the curls,
craving the sweet sap,
taking it away

to their dark, underground cities —
and all day
under the shifty wind,
as in a dance to the great wedding,

the flowers bend their bright bodies,
and tip their fragrance to the air,
and rise,
their red stems holding

all that dampness and recklessness
gladly and lightly,
and there it is again —
beauty the brave, the exemplary,

blazing open.
Do you love this world?
Do you cherish your humble and silky life?
Do you adore the green grass, with its terror beneath?

Do you also hurry, half-dressed and barefoot, into the garden,
and softly,
and exclaiming of their dearness,
fill your arms with the white and pink flowers,

with their honeyed heaviness, their lush trembling,
their eagerness
to be wild and perfect for a moment, before they are
nothing, forever?

+ Half full

+ New favorite show

+ Library book overload (I have until the end of the move to finish both!)

+ On repeat

+ Recipe to try

+ Enjoying this app. Confession: I did a one minute meditation the other day. Better than nothing, right?

Stopping by to say hello! And that I haven't forgotten about you or this blog. Life is busy with the important stuff - family, friends, and finding rest when and where I can.

I was especially inspired by these two blog posts on time well spent. (More on that later.)

It's Not Friday

But I have a spare 5 minutes to post this new tune by my all time favorite group, Sylvan Esso. Foot tappin' good!
