Today, I am posting a few of the things I have been looking at that help me linger longer on the shinier side of my mind.
The dark, dank, miserable side has been with me, a lot, lately.
While frittering away hours on the interweb can leave me guilt ridden for avoiding all the other things, practical things, boring things I need to do and am clearly avoiding, it does turn up some amazing stuff.
But, sometimes my head gets overwhelmed by how many talented writers, artists, crafts-people, journalists, educators, thinkers and incredibly gifted people there are on this planet. I can be left with feelings of worthlessness and overloaded with just way TOO MUCH INFORMATION.
Do you find that?
I wish I could be content with my life, a simple life. I wish I could stop the comparison game. Sadly, my crazily wired up brain just finds it almost impossible to work that way.
I love to look and find, even if sometimes it does. my. head. in.
Here are a few things of whimsy and bringing me some joy...

|Wonderful Wire Frocks from Karen Searle|

Whilst writing this, I have been listening to and loving Zola Jesus and her moody, broody vocals.
Even though Spring is the harbinger of Summer with it's stinky, hot, crisp-everything-up temperatures and threat of bushfire...I must pay her her dues.
Thank-you Spring for the unfurling of new life and possibilities.
