New home, old friends. Very happy to be in Ocean Shores!

A weekend away in the New England NP/Cathedral Rock NP on Gumbaynggirr Country for Carly's 31st b'day <3

Blue Ridge Mountains by Fleet Foxes plays softly

Friend time, fam time and a little bit of sunshine

Don't you just love swimming in sparkles? Shot my my housemate and dear friend, Lisa <3

Covid and La Niña conspired against us this summer, but I did sneak in a few golden days with my brother, nieces and friends. And it's not over yet!

I feel like this photo captures my self-perception really well. Funny when you think you're being yourself/living your truth and all that then look back and realise you totally weren't. At least not compared to now. I guess it's hard to spot when you're in the thick of it. All of this rambling to say, I reckon I'm currently the most me I've ever been. It's nice.

Depollute me, pretty baby
Suck the rot right out of my bloodstream
Oh, dilute me, gentle angel
Water down what I called being grateful

Oh, you kissed me just to kiss me
Not to take me home
It was simple, it was sweetness
It was good to know

You look perfect, you look different
I don't wonder about your indifference
If I said you could never touch me
You'd come over and say I looked lovely

Oh, you kissed me just to kiss me
Not to make mе cry
It was simple, you are sweetness
Lеt's just sit a while

Depollute me, gentle angel
And I'll feel the sickness less and less
Come and kiss me, pretty baby
Like we'll never have sex

Besides, sometimes to resolve desire, it's better to let the thing bloom. To feel this thing, to let it catch you unaware, to hold on to the ache.

What is better than believing you are heading towards love?

Open Water by Caleb Azumah Nelson

"We need a home in the psychological sense as much as we need one in the physical: to compensate for a vulnerability. We need a refuge to shore up our states of mind… We need our rooms to align us to desirable versions of ourselves and to keep alive the important, evanescent sides of us."
Alain de Botton - THE PERFECT HOME (2006)
