A quote from a Therapy Thoughts interview.
Went to the dentist. Why is it not covered? Made this.
I was up early yesterday and went to Granville Island while the market was still waking up. People were setting up booths and others, like me, were killing time until stuff opened. Walking around I kept thinking I hope you have a good day and your business does well. Not in some fluffy insincere way but in a way that is painful and connected and empathetic. I wanted these people to be okay, to do well.
I couldn’t help but think about how different our world would be if this was how we thought about things. Take care of each other so we can all do well and have decent lives. Don’t we all want everyone to be okay or has the individualism of capitalism crushed that from most of us?
Typing up quotes from The Secret Life of Trees I basically only underlined stuff about how trees help each other. Like humans they are social and live in communities. They take care of each other. And so should we.
Another quote because I’m up early and I can’t help myself.
A great quote from the Nancy podcast.
I don’t know if I love how it looks but the point of this is to play around so who knows.
A couple more quotes.
From Krista Tippet.
From Happiness by Heather Harpham. A lovely and beautiful book.
May you eat burritos. Lots and lots of burritos.
I’ve been going through stuff I wrote on my phone either in Notes or Google Docs and putting it up as blog posts. It’s working well for me.
The writing stuff out by hand days are behind me and I rarely feel compelled to sit down and write a post. Writing on the go was jiving with me. As I waste time on the b-line (yes making students bus to UBC from the other side of the city because of terrible zoning is a huge waste of my time) I might start writing blog posts.
I want to post more. I want to be more on top of shit.
I’m not gonna be a student forever so documenting and sharing this moment seems worthwhile I’m just usually too exhausted to do it.
I feel like blogging and writing again. It's nice to be back to that.
I needed a break after writing for a living proved to just be really awful and soul crushing. There were a few years there where I didn’t feel like writing.
If you’re meant to do something you get back to it in time.
I also have more energy and feel like a human again. It’s been a year (more or less) and I feel like I’m getting back to myself.
May you have faith that it’s all going somewhere and will in fact work itself out
Life is awkward
I hope all these mental health podcasts are better than whatever Charlotte is listening to
Not loving the sweater vests
No hospital visits this time
How long have you been here? I couldn’t say.
How are they always at Shibuya Crossing?
May I be able to sleep when I get back
Are you awake?
Does anyone know what’s happening?
Does it get easier?
I just don’t know what I’m supposed to be
Every girl goes through a photography phase
Nobody ever tells you that
The mountain in the distance
Which way is Mt Fuji?
The Maples look great. I miss taking those pictures
Kyoto is lovely
May you find your way. May you find yourself. May you enjoy the journey.
Onsen onsen onsen
Daikanyama is hip
I can’t tell the difference
I thought I’d missed you
Looks of sadness and longing
To be seen
To be close to somebody
To have Phoenix songs play in the background of our lostness
Friends you get for a moment. This one transitory moment. It will never be like this again. You won’t be back round this way.
Glico flashes neon wishes
I’m wearing a new clean shirt and it feels good. Post travel greeting of my closet is going well.
The car dependence
Why are these kids unsurprised?
