I was considering priorities and how I do not have a specific thing, person, or place I am living for or value above all else. What I find most important is an intangible feeling of love that I follow and cling to wherever I can find it...in tubes of brightly saturated paint, in cerulean skies seen through a kaleidoscope of tree tops on the farm, in kisses under a sky full of stars against a denim blue beetle. Without moments like these--what is anyone really living for?? It is the little things like playing with golden retriever puppies, trying on wacky sunglasses in thrift stores, and finding music that fits your current mood perfectly. It is about old friends and new loves...and it is a constant desire and effort to learn, grow, and stay in a positive creative energy feed with good friends.
The past two weeks have been spent filling my soul with happiness and that intangible kind of love by going to Pannikin with Anniegrace, having brunch at the farm with Emerson, Lexie, and Garrett, eating tacos at the beach with Thomas, and talking on the phone with Alé. I have been busy capturing moments on film with Noelle and playing with Dexie’s puppy. I have watched Wes Anderson films and read books and created art. I have explored Elfin Forest and baked peanut butter chocolate pretzel cookies and watched the sun set above the lagoon.
And it is all of these little precious nothings that mean everything.

When a riptide occurs and tosses you about in the sea, a lifeguard will often swim out to warn you, but other times you are left to fend for yourself. Fate can decide whether or not you drift under and away or back to the sanctuary of shore. Life can be similar to that too. Riding a constant and continuous current of ups and downs, highs and lows. When it comes to the ocean, getting dragged out to sea is physically tormenting, and in life the obstacles we face are often much more emotionally draining.
