leaf with water droplets

a couple of weeks ago i decided to go to the conservatory in roath park, as i’d somehow not been in there before. i’ve been missing out all these years living in cardiff! despite having to walk around barefoot due to my shoe strap breaking, it was absolutely worth it. also i got myself some chocolate cake on the way home. win/win.

a couple of weeks ago i went to roath park to take some photos. it was far too hot for me and by the time i walked home i was melting into nothingness. totally worth it for some lovely photos though, and for the first time in 4 years of living here i finally walked all the way around the lake! i don’t know why i hadn’t before. here’s to many more photo walks.

// i was reading this interview with curtis sittenfeld, and this bit in his three pieces of advice really stuck out to me. it totally applies to other types of writing to – like blogging:

“Write about subjects that you feel obsessed with, rather than choosing a topic because it seems timely or important. Any topic can be timely or important if you handle it well. At the same time, if you expect to find readers (or be paid for your work), realize that [fiction] writing is a kind of conversation. Nobody owes it to you to find your work interesting.”

// basically, all of the yes. if you feel down/burnt out/whatever about blogging, just read that.

// these minimal, muted collages by joe webb are freakin’ awesome. danielle sure has an eye for some fantastic collage artists.

// i l-o-v-e textiles and when i came across this (and other) pieces by emily barletta i was bowled over. she’s got that simple yet complicated thing down-pat!

// illustrations by dan hillier are just crazy good and you should check them out. doooo it!

flowers, fleurs, blommeΒ 

if there has ever been an everlasting love in my life, it’s flowers. no matter what, i’m always going to love them. whether they’re in the wild, store bought, a pattern on a dress or trinket, or in a painting. whatever their form, the love is strong. for as long as i can remember they’ve been, well, almost a part of my identity it seems.
