obsessions

  • dipping my toes into philosophy... heidegger and dear ludwig and the handsome but troubled kierkegaard, foucault and nietzsche and the mischievous montaigne.... i love it here
  • the comment section on patti smith's substack !!! it's such a sweet little community, everyone sharing their thoughts with one another, telling stories or relating theories or simply leaving a heart for patti... and everyone kind and positive, always. i'm so glad this space exists, it's like getting a new book from patti each week, i couldn't have dreamed of a better gift :0)

moments

  • loving these days spent lying on my blanket in the grass, drenched in early spring sunshine and the warm kindness of azure skies, reading some mary oliver, jotting down a line or two in my notebook, closing my eyes and sleeping as the breeze wanders by... i love the spring <3

good things about the month

  • lovely white blossoms on the cherry tree; light cavalry overture; baking a clementine cake with the last of my clems; our bright golden forsythia; breezy days, my new wind chime singing sweetly into the afternoon; trips to the flea market; daffodils everywhere; lovingly crafting my first world war literature display; lying in the grass; naps in the sun; raspberry iced coffees; paul ricoeur; the happy reds and pinks of the tulips; kate's well-deserved guggenheim fellowship; collecting blossoms at dusk for my redbud jelly; spending all of my days off outside, walking and reading for hours and hours; pride and prejudice; grape hyacinths blooming; planting the first seeds of the season; going braless at work and embracing my inner rachel green; scott joplin tunes; buying a new first edition blunden... i love my beloved, my sweetest poet; transplanting my seedlings with dad – they've grown so tall so quickly! i'm so proud; mads mikkelsen in another round; strawberry dragonfruit refresher; the full moon rising over the hills; wittgenstein and kierkegaard; obsessively organizing the philosophy section at work; baking my raspberry lemon poppy seed cake for ralph's birthday;
