Man, that “In Memoriam” segment toward the end of the Emmy’s - We lost so many good ones this year. Again. Life is ridiculously short (I’m thinking of writing a letter of complaint) - it’s mental, and magic, and what even IS ducks? Hold onto the good stuff, my friends. Every smile, hug, handshake, awkward high fighve. They’re all worth it - because it’s ALL the good stuff. Surround yourself with happy - strive to make others feel it, too. Don’t drive angry. Make toast. Think about the smallness of us and the vastness of everything else. Life is good - it’s really. fucking. good. We can make the smallest positive choices every day of our lives, and those choices have the potential to snowball into such big, amazing things.
LAWN STORY: I just went to mow my front lawn and forgot that the last time I used it I had to mess with the height settings, so when I revved it up I cut a huge bald spot in it with the first push. I grabbed some of the trimmings from the bag and threw them on the ground to cover it up, but it didn’t really work, so I’m going to do the same thing I do when I give myself a bad haircut - Buy a huge lawn hat and just avoid everyone for 6-8 weeks <3
I’m finally reading the Harry Potter books for the first time ever (I know, shush… shush now) and oh my goodness… They’ve just reached Hogwarts and I think I might already be a tiny bit absolutely in love with it all… Ron’s cloak being too short, you can see his trainers underneath. Oh lord, that’s my school life, right there…
Anyway! I thought it’d be fun to create a series of painting as I go along, seeing what inspires me and pulls me to it. I’m working on the first one right now - progress pictures coming in just a few :)
