Rainstorms and Symbolism.

It rained today, for the first time in seemingly forever. I am pretty much 100% guilty of being all sad and gloomy when it rains; the sun and warmth and glow just feed me. Yet there is something magical about those certain rainstorms that end and then the sun comes out immediately afterwards. Like the old has been washed away and the new is coming in loud and strong. That happened tonight. So I took a walk and decided to try to appreciate the rain. Of course I took my camera... here is a bit of my journey!

NOT Just Another Manic Monday.

By Starlight Woods on Etsy
 
Monday mornings are not my friend. As a general rule, Sunday nights are not either... because I spend them dreading Monday mornings. Currently I am trying to break free of the "living for the weekend" mindset that I have become completely entrapped in. Sure, ideally I do not want to spend eight hours of my day at my desk at work. But right now, it is what I have to do.

Garden Fun!

in

Four years ago on my birthday, my mom was stumped when it came to a birthday present when she suddenly had an idea. I had just moved to a new apartment; it sits on the corner of the building and I have a cute little patio and a decent-sized mulch bed (for an apartment). She said, "How about I buy you flowers and we plant a garden?" I was skeptical at first. I am not so much a domestic goddess and only cook using the microwave. Wasn't gardening hard? How would I know how much to water, or where to plant, or what to trim??

Rant-y Garbage Post.

And I mean "Garbage Post" in the sense that this is going to cover little of everything. You know, like how a garbage pizza has every topping under the sun on it. I guess I just have a lot on my mind at this very moment, and it's all about to spill.

On Hanging Out In Cemeteries... And Being Potentially Creepy.

I Want to be Like Flora Bowley.

So after a mysterious two month hiatus, I feel like my inspiration and drive has returned with a vengeance. I can't stop reading artist's blogs, Facebook pages, reading their stories on the Etsy blog, admiring their work. Maybe it's the return of the sunshine, warm weather, and life this spring that has brought my creative spirit back with it. Whatever it is, I'm grateful it happened.
