well, i better get to sleep this minute and stop this line of thought or i’ll head to the fridge. where i’ll find all of this. said no one ever.
make. me. one.
i don’t quite want to explain why, but i had an eye opening experience about how it feels to be homeless for a several hours and it really makes me see how the world can feel inhospitable and cold. its a complex issue but a reminder to try and keep my heart open and see. see the truth, as beautiful and as ugly as it can be.
yesterday i was overwhelmed by the ugly and then today i had the clarity to reflect on the fact that i have a lot to be grateful for and that humbles me. there are a select few people who love me despite all my terrible flaws and secret vulnerability, and that is a miracle i can’t believe sometimes. it wan’t always this way and so it is especially worth being grateful for.
i can’t even bear looking at this. how are some animals so sidfoirebg uoygfrueguhf ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh cuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuttte!
i’m staring at it like i’m the big bad wolf because i just want to grab it and squeeze it and kiss it. okay, that just sounds so wrong. but you know what i mean.
i could watch them for an hour.

This raccoon never left the side of a cat who was dying of a tumor. The cat was comforted for the final hours of her life by her long time friend.
the last gif tho, he pats the cat, omg
THIS IS THE BEST THING I HAVE EVER SEEN :’(
interspecies love. tears.
now this is a shot i’d like to have taken. this takes my breath away. i always like the mix of humanity and beauty. human possibility. us at our best.
up up and away, in my beautiful, my beautiful balloon…
okay, this is the last one. something so simple can be so pretty.
its almost summer.
apropos nothing, i feel like sharing strawberries with you today!

neurons firing. synapses triggering. lightening striking. minds peaking. hearts waking. souls quaking.
as above, so below.
i love new york city. i was trying to think of why i love cities so much. when i was in my depressed and railing against humanity state of mind, i used want to move out “to the country” and be far away from people. but now i love people. for the most part. the people i encounter on a daily basis are so nice and i just love the flow of energy when you approach people from a very positive loving place. today it was the guy who sold me the cakes i was buying for my nephews. what an awesome guy. and the women working the check outs at all the places i was buying easter gifts from. and the woman who scheduled my heart ultrasound. nice people are everywhere but not everyone sees them. oh you will get the odd misery person but each person is individual and so i’ve learned not to hang on to the negative residue and move on to the next. so far i still have issues while driving and really, i do need to look into racing vehicles legally. anyway, i love cities. i love the mix of people. i love not being bored and if you are wild and adventurous enough to search you will find endless things to do. you will come across countless people who will share a part of their story with you just for the asking. you can exchange heart energy and you can learn and discover something around every corner. i’m just a city girl at heart.
i was born to understand humanity and learn to love it. i can simultaneously be aware of so much horror logged in my brain files and still walk out the door with love intent.
(so sorry i don’t know who took this picture.)
