I think a little blogging is in order. Why? Well, because it's raining, and 61 degrees out, and I'm curled up in my robe and a blanket, drinking coffee, and it's Saturday. I decided during the middle of the summer (more realized) that I spend far too little time actually feeling content, and did I have some control over this? Turns out, I do. Not that I always did. But I do.
I was noting that last night when I was also curled up on the couch, eating Colby Cheez-Its and watching Tim Burton's Sleepy Hollow, and feeling enormously comforted by the dark vibe and art direction of the movie - aided by having my vintage sputnik lamp on in the "game corner" and having my favorite "bonfire"-scent candle going. CONTENTMENT. I think the key is not so much that I think all the world and all of life is glorious and perfect, but enjoying the small moments, and not stuffing them full of anxious thoughts about what do I have to do next and how am I going to get what I want sooner than later and yadda yadda.
That was fine in my 20's but it doesn't work anymore. It doesn't work for many reasons, but mostly it doesn't work because I have a very full schedule and many responsibilities, so I MUST, I NEED to take time to clear my brain of expectations of the future. I don't really concern myself with that much, anymore. I know some of the things I need to do, but beyond that - who knows.
Tonight is CPT's Pandemonium, and some lovely friends are doing my little play The Birds and the Bees, which will be great fun to see again. AND, I will find some way to deck myself out because it's PANDEMONIUM. Pictures maybe forthcoming. I do not feel photogenic anymore. That's the problem w/looking at pictures from... my 20's.
But. I've done a bit more thrifting and have some treasures to show. Will probably just go the easy route and use Instagram to post them here. But since thrifting is still one of my favorite things to do, and my summer of austerity is over, I'll be posting more. AND it's costume season so hopefully I'll score some major finds. Score.
