Things I noticed, captured in photos, because.

You know what? It's been YEARS since I shared with you random photographs taken while out and about in real life, so this is a a good old fashioned vintage blog style post! I miss the act of just showing up and sharing photographs of things that I discover day-to-day.
I was going to call this post "Stuff I Would Post at Instagram if the Algorithm Hadn't Ruined Everything."
And as an aside, Instagram feels kind of crazy competitive... so I will still post there, but I need to notice my frustration and let it go. It's a small thing in the big universe, I know.
The good news is that I recognize that I am most comfortable right here at the blog. It's my space. It's cozy. I can talk about things in more depth, or tell a story, or link to relevant posts, or share tutorials or whatever is going on. I don't have to research the right #cool hashtag or or ensure that my photograph looks snazzy in my grid-o-photos.
Random Other Stuff
PS>>> I've been working on a new Zine, should be out this week! 🧡
PSS>>> Please do take care of yourself this month and stick at least minimally to your journaling practice! The holidays take us on tangents and we so easily veer out of our normal healthy routines + habits. So the more of the healthy stuff you can keep doing, the better you'll feel this month!
