interlude.

Things are crazy right now and I'm on the move every two days with little rest. In a brief interlude between weddings, I found myself reunited with Eric and Nea at the farm yesterday. With little sleep, I ran to the top field to check on my foxgloves and on the way back Eric called my cell phone. "Double Rainbow!! Double Rainbow!!" he yelled. I ran through the woods to see it...and like the good little slave to my phone that I am, I snapped a picture of it, although only one rainbow showed up...


This was after I accidentally took a picture of myself trying to take a picture of the rainbow...


I look nuts. It makes me laugh out loud when I look at it. It makes me realize that beyond my personal hustle; all the rushing, the work, the worries, all of the things...Nature just keeps on doing what it will...making rain, wind, hail, tornadoes and rainbows (all of which we've had upstate this past week). And nature doesn't give a fuck about all my dumb junk.

Life is weird and wild...and in the end, we take it too seriously. Or I do at least.

I just found your blog through a link on Orangette, and the picture of you accidentally taking a picture of yourself nearly killed me...mostly because we apparently make the SAME demented face when we're concentrating. ;) And I loved loved loved what you said about how you take things too seriously. This is really something I'm trying to remind myself of...I read a posting on Gluten Free Girl the other day in which she wrote "And then I looked up from my own feet and saw that vast, glorious city that I still think of as home. The world is much bigger and richer and more indifferent than my tiny mind believes. One of the reasons I love New York is that the city doesn’t give a shit if you’re having a hard time. It just keeps on keeping on." That struck home too. I - we! - can walk around worrying as much as we want, but it ain't gonna change a damn thing, except the amount that we enjoy our lives and actually experience them.

So here's to being present, to being humble, to finding new blogs too early on a Friday morning. Thank you. :)

That's one of my favorite things to remind myself of -- nature keeps going despite the shit in my life. It's so comforting to be reminded of that.
