The Way to Love

{The way to love anything is to realize that it might be lost. -G.K. Chesterton}

Especially. Yourself.

Don't forget to love you, you, you. Because you won't always be here.

Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one WILD and PRECIOUS life?
Maybe I should try to answer that question myself.

Pretty Porn from Design Sponge

I could look at this gorgeous home of floral designer Nicollete Camille all day long. Featured yesterday on Design*Sponge.

{Sun Down, Yellow Moon, I Replay the Past} A Bit of Prose

It's been a long week. I feel the black dog settling in around me a little bit. I rearrange furniture, put pictures in frames, eat ice cream, try to unbend the heavy tightness in my bones with movement. I tell the black dog to go home. He's a wanting thing. Sleek, with bottomless eyes, yearning. He misses my harbor of comfort, of long days and longer nights held tight in each other's animal warmth. I rarely let him inside anymore. And though this rents my heart, tugs me toward the earth in its grip of gentle teeth, I keep the door shut, let the sun go down, pull the covers close, and dream of running, of birds flying, of ocean waves, of light, of the sound water makes as it holds a body in a steaming bath, of horses, how gentle they look in the evening sun, hooves dug deep into the cool of the welcoming earth. {What to wear? 186/365 by shes jack on flickr via Design is Mine.}
