for much of the past few weeks it's the flowers and late afternoon walks that have kept me from losing my mind during more than one anxiety induced meltdown. when things happen they seem to happen all at once. {i'll spare you the blow by blow} the air is filled with more than it's share of pollen this spring and as i sit along the flower beds in my downtown urban sprawl i ponder the fast moving current that has been underfoot and kept me off balance since middle march. the only thing firmly planted at the moment is the delightful cherry out my window that waited so patiently to blossom. so as i harness the energy to take on spring then summer weddings, grow my business, move to a new home and ever so delicately balance a bevy of projects at my doorstep i remember that winter tends to lull us into a bit of a coma and when we awake to a new spring a delayed response to all the budding change is not all that unnatural.

tillandsia - fasciculata

so swimming upstream against the current isn't always such a good idea. the more you fight it the more it will sweep you away. sometimes you just have to let it take you freely to new and unfamiliar shores. i will keep this in mind as i'm mired in buckets, boxes, books and tchotchkes that i've collected over time and prepare to unload them as well as my anxiety and continue to gather dirt under my nails and find solace in the seeds of change all in the name of love and marriage.

amaranthus gangeticus

a soulful tune for you. my heart melts every time.

enjoy what's left of this beautiful day.
