Let It Go

photo via notesondesign 
to live in this world

you must be able
to do three things
to love what is mortal;
to hold it

against your bones knowing
your own life depends on it;
and, when the time comes to let it go,
to let it go

Anxiety Hack

[S]o much angst is generated at worrying about ourselves. Lots of research suggests that doing something nice for someone else generates a positive sense of well-being. If you find yourself overcome by anxious thoughts or feeling sorry for yourself about something, find something to do for someone else.

Sounds of Technology

Sooooo true!

Already ripe avocados? Get out of here with that nonsense, Ralphs. I’m from New York, where, in lieu of avocados, grocery stores put out six hundred petrified dragon eggs and shoppers must squeeze every last one of them before buying the softest but still rock-hard option, and then bring it home and watch it go from unripe to completely rotten without ever once being edible. That’s how New Yorkers do avocados.

This made me laugh.

Gah. I LOVE it when...

... my gif synchronizes with my music. (It's the little things, right?)

First Day of Fall


Happy first day of fall, friends!

I was just thinking back to what I was up to last year and the year before on this very day. Although there are few blog posts in this time period, I have taken lots of photos to look back on.

Two years ago today, I was in Zermatt.

Two years! Gah, it feels impossible that it's only been two years. Feels like a lifetime. Watching the video made me a little teary. So much has changed, and somehow so little. (I literally wore exactly the same clothes this week. Slouchy jeans + gray sweatshirt really stood the test of time. :)

Life is insane. Even the little bit I know of it.

Sunday at Golden Gate Park


Sunny day + long weekend + lawn games + friends + finger food + doggggggggs = success. Here's a short video, if you'd like to see.
