Too much of yesterday was spent in sad panda mode. A close friend left on a jet plane, leaving his life here behind. He’ll be coming back to visit when he can but for the next two years his home will be in the South. Not exactly an expatriate, unless the South attempts to secede from the Union again, but still, a stranger in a strange land. While I was sad to see him go I do wish him well. I allowed myself to mope for a while (and will likely do so now and again) but my moods are so mercurial. I still managed to have a lovely, quiet evening and an excellent day today. I paused on the way to work this morning - to snap photos of a few subjects that caught my eye. At Clockwork our first CSA delivery of the season arrived from Jackson Hollow Farm. And I read an interview with the always delightful Thao Nguyen. All little reminders I’ve got to keep doing what I can to make myself happy in the here and now and quit clinging to any hopes for the future.
Bonus: “A 600ft jellyfish pattern has appeared in a barley field in Kingstone Coombes, Oxfordshire, in what is one of the most intriguing crop circles ever seen in Britain.”
Plus: Also of unusual size? This orange man/monster made from construction barrels in Raleigh, NC. Oh, those creative saboteurs.
And: A co-worker has been designing logos for a client. While researching/inspiration-seeking he encountered the Invasion of the Neutered Sprites. Be sure to click through a few of them to get the full effect.
