restlessness

March 14, 2011











. . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

a grey, wet sky outside, no real plans for the day, horrible news coming from japan … all of it made me feel restless and unsettled yesterday. instead of relishing a day with nothing to do, i felt antsy all day long. so i went for a walk, bought myself a plant that really caught my eye, and upon returning home i snapped some photos around the house. they capture the mood of a grey sunday … i’ll show you more later this week.

in the meantime, i’m incredibly inspired by:
+ candelaria paris¬†(i can’t wait to visit)
+ anna, brooklyn NYC (gorgeous photos, but some of them are NSFW)

have a nice monday.

    Surely something universally restless in the air yesterday. Agreed. Here in the States it seemed easy to blame it on Daylight Savings Time.

    I have Real Food From Near and Far on my table, too. Do you know of Alice’s Cookbook (same series) — equally lovely (if not more so, maybe). Spare, simple, charming.

    haha the second one freaks me out but i sometimes like weird things like that!
    there were lovely shimmering pools of sun for the first half of the day, which i spent inside school, i don’t know where it all went :(

    I often feel this way on Sundays. I hope the new week treats you well.

    I had that same feeling yesterday, so many hearts broken, we must’ve all felt their pain. Great post. Very inspirational.

    ah, buying plants always solves my problems! looks like your restless day was reasonably productive, at least.

    I felt this same unease. I found it difficult to appreciate a leisurely day knowing the pain and suffering going on. I want to scoop up everybody there, deliver them to my bed for rest, cook them food. It is amazing to feel our interconnectedness so palpably. We are not individuals walking this planet, we are united in more ways than we can begin to comprehend.

    Thank you for this tender post.

    That’s one of my favorite records. So good.

    Wasn’t feeling exactly antsy yesterday but I kept starting something and stopping halfway, somehow nothing felt right even though I resisted watching NHK. Too much unnecessary repeats of tragedy. Love these photos.

    i think buying a plant is a really good thing to do on that kind of day !
    and “all things must pass”, it has to be said, best record EVER.
    AND candelaria looks amazing, i’ll have to go check it out soon…
    beautiful photos, as always.

    The last three pictures made my day in the office.. Thanks

    I particularly enjoyed this ones, it seems the antsy mood is not so bad after all, not if from all moods we create something and move forward ;)

    Looks like what I’d do when the mood is so grey and unfocussed. I just bought myself a plant the other day and it felt good.

    Cheers!

    Your new plant looks like it found a loving home. You’ve captures a restless Sunday perfectly.
