Reclaim time…


AbiDashery repurposed tie dye tunic, Emerson & Oliver Tibetan tusk necklace, DressLily gold ring, Deb booties, casual outfit, tie dye, outfit ideas, kinfolk magazine

“To experience a sense of belonging, we need to reclaim our humanity and place more value on the power of relationships.  We need to be with people and in situations where our fallibility is accepted rather than treated as something to be fixed.  We need to reclaim time, to have time on our hands, time to waste, time for unplanned conversation, time for biding our time.  These qualities of belonging are always available to us." 

I found that in the spring issue of Kinfolk, typed it into a Word document, and then promptly forgot about it for a month, but I'm glad I rediscovered it.  SB and I have been so busy trying to orchestrate the next phases of our lives (thanks for the uncertainty, military) that I think we've both forgotten about both interacting with other people and accepting any flaws that those particular people may have.  
Time ticks faster when there is too much to do.  I managed to squeak out 5 minutes to take these photos in the 30 minutes I had between babysitting and driving to meet two different people in two different places to sell some stuff before getting to work on time.  It was raining and the wind kept blowing hair into my face and I really debated not posting all of these pictures because of my lovely facial expressions, but I figured, "Heck, if I'm going to write about taking time and accepting flaws, these snaps are perfect." 

… and in keeping with the theme of taking time, I wanted to share a lovely little playlist that I put together.  It is called : lie in and is rather fabulous for those days when you don't have to get out of bed and can choose to lay around and do nothing for as long as you like!

  2. I've never felt that I belonged anywhere, but I never stop looking for that place. Maybe one day.
