“Do you know," Peter asked, "why swallows build in the eaves of houses? It is to listen to the stories.” ~ J.M. Barrie, Peter Pan


prison break

no rules.

let this next year be out of focus and full of even more imperfection, 
full of flowers that outgrow their containers and dangle dangerously over the sides,
pushing their roots out the bottoms.
contain this, baby.


reverb 13, day 19:
how will you practice self compassion?



  1. I love this. 'Out of focus and full of even more imperfection' yes!!

  2. I enjoyed these words :) Imperfection is perfection in the making.

  3. I am still smiling at this. And I love the image.

  4. here i was thinking that next year i might try to follow some rules. then i read this.
    i think being out of focus is better.
    i think i will try 'out of focus'..
