i’ve never been good at instagramming in the moment (much less at the “peak performance” times) so here is a midnight “later gram” of a
an open eyed pause at a 5 o’clock corner of what is a past present. .
.
which was exactly-then filled with months old typewriter poems
and
(another) glass of wine
and
afternoon sunbeams on old farmhouse floors
and
book 22 of 50 on the to-read list for the year
and
echoed calls on painted-over wall papered walls
and (another) pair of leather clogs haphazardly kicked off from a day of motion.
.
.
my first photography teacher, when i was 17, told me that i had an eye for the vernacular (in the way of architecture and interiors and the mundane, functional and domestic bits of living). i don’t know if this is what she meant but these are the things i most often see.

    Just wondering if wooden clogs are comfortable?

    @annie_and_sons i like them! i mean i wouldn’t go walking marathons in them or anything-and there isn’t arch support... but i walk a lot so my feet have a lot of calluses haha. hey don’t have give though-obviously-so if you’re on the fence and really and truly need them for every day wear i would probably consider something else:)

    @emilynicolaides oh gosh that’s so hard! i’ve read a lot of good ones this year so far. i just finished Annie Dillard’s Tinker Creek (as seen here) but some other favorites probably are Solitude by Anthony Storr and The Shepherds Life by James Rebanks. you can look at my highlights “good reads” for a few others! i started sharing some on there but i haven’t in a while. maybe i need to get back to it.
