indoors


I'm writing lists on small post-its and sticking them to the edge of my bedside dinner table (long story, small home). Right now it looks like I'm going to sleep tonight, and tomorrow night too, feels pretty amazing. I have something to show you, but it'll have to wait for a little while longer. Recently I've been taking photos of everything but the things I ought to be photographing. And yes, there is a list for things that need to be taken photos of. Also a list of dresses to make.


Sunshine is pretty great, especially indoors. I'm not an outdoorsy person in the spring, if ever. Too much pollen and brightness and happy people. This spring I've mostly been stuck at home because of my leg and stuff, but I've been strangely cool about it. At first it was really, really annoying but then I just watched a lot of good films, and whenever I felt even slightly creative I took bad (and good) photos of things around me (and of myself too). If you get bored of photos that aren't of books or art, I apologize in advance. I personally enjoy experiencing splinters of other people's lives.




Today I learnt that tussilago farfara can have roots up to 70 centimeters long. (Lately I've been collecting useless information more than ever before. It's okay.)

orange

Today a stranger on the street told me how the grey of my pants beautifully compliments the orange of my oranges.

withered


This year has been unlike any year before. It's been tough and lovely at the same time (sometimes just tough and sometimes just lovely). I'm sorry I disappeared. I still need to get my health back before I start working on any major projects, but I just wanted to let you know I'm getting there. Soon-ish. I hope. As soon as I start to sleep at night again.


And if there's something I hate, it's not being allowed to walk. Not being able to walk was easier.
