Weekend artifacts.

My human.💛

Full bloom.

Till the wheels fall off.

To the most genuine, generous and patient man I know, happy birthday @anthony__aquino 💛

Mary Oliver, a million times over thank you - for your words and the light you shared with us all.

Wild Geese by Mary Oliver
.
You do not have to be good.
.
You do not have to walk on your knees for a hundred miles through the desert repenting.
.
You only have to let the soft animal of your body love what it loves.
.
Tell me about despair, yours, and I will tell you mine.
.
Meanwhile the world goes on.
.
Meanwhile the sun and the clear pebbles of the rain are moving across the landscapes, over the prairies and the deep trees,
the mountains and the rivers.
.
Meanwhile the wild geese, high in the clean blue air, are heading home again.
.
Whoever you are, no matter how lonely, the world offers itself to your imagination, calls to you like the wild geese, harsh and exciting - over and over announcing your place
in the family of things.

Here’s to more alive new beginnings.

“No, we don’t need more sleep. It’s our souls that are tired, not our bodies.

We need nature.
We need magic.
We need adventure.
We need freedom.
We need truth.
We need stillness.
We don’t need more sleep, we need to wake up and live.”

That California winter light 💫

Film studies with @gracehopkiins

Creative playdates are necessary.
.
No shotlists, no deliverables, just time in the studio with a new film camera in hand.

Over the last four years, I’ve had the insane privilege of being a witness to this moment time and time again. Yet each time, it stops me in my tracks.
.
It’s not a perfectly composed photograph or was ever intended to make the ‘selects’; it’s a second in between shots when each of these women’s light can’t help but radiate.
.
A moment in which women from worlds apart have that ah-ha moment that together we can accomplish what was once defined as the impossible.
.
After more than a year in the making the beautifully sourced, designed and artisan made @the_citizenry India collection is live. It takes a village folks, near and far, to make something like this happen.
.
Hats off to the @the_citizenry team for having the vision and determination and the very talented artisan partners who brought it all to life.

Full Strawberry Moon / June 28. 2018
.
Proof that endings are often beautiful beginnings.

Rounding out this summer awaiting @anthony__aquino’s safe arrival. He took off this am with his moto gang, @tddlmrtn, @apow_wow, and his first true love (🏍) for a coast-to-coast road trip . Here’s to nights under the stairs, open country roads, and wearing your helmet. 😘
