every day i learn more about myself but at the same time i become less of myself. does that make any sense? . * i have a virtual guestbook! https://www.yourworldoftext.com/~danibloop/ ✉ ・゚゚・*: .。. .。.:*゚:* : ✼✿ ・゚゚・*:✼✿.。.。.:*゚:* 📹🍵🕯️🌫️🕵🏻‍♀️🦔🌬️🍃 all welcome ✼ * * ✼ ✿✿ traces of last year 16th February '21 -- currently in awe of the passage of time. that is all. 24th February '21 -- the colour brown. a single cloud. green screens. a street photographer that was late. recipes from the South. messages that cannot come fast enough. a drowsy haze. a teabag is set aside. the jacarandas bloom. 27th February '21 -- feeling big and small at the same time. the smell of blossoms in the night. 5th March '21 -- looking ahead to what looks like is going to be another restless night. 13th March '21 -- the smell of perfume – or wait, has the world always smelled this sweet? 28th March '21 -- i. emerging from a long night. observing the wind and the petals it carries. where will it take them? an opportunity appears. bones have grown heavy. need to relearn how to lift them. i must find a caretaker for my peace lily. is the ocean in my future? ii. three plumages stained crimson resting on the ground. two of them now know true silence. 6th April '21 -- a place by the sea i no longer remember, kept away from me with layers of glass and cloth. a tortoise with a phone number on its shell in the event it gets lost. a childhood home with the same strawberry bush by the doorway, and the same half-moon window except this time i'm staring at it from the wrong side. 7th April '21 -- nostalgia means painful homecoming and i think i finally am grasping that in its entirety. not because i'm reckoning with a return to what i once knew, but because i am returning to what was already long forgotten. 8th May '21 -- must all things end? 14th May '21 -- the letter "i" has fallen off. an hour later, it reappears. ✿ ✼ now have some fish: 𓆝 𓆞 𓆟𓆜 𓆞 𓆜 𓆞𓆟 𓆜 🌌✧・゚*:✧・゚☽༓・*˚⁺‧͙🚣🏻✧:*☆
