NYC

Some days I'm a leaf. Other days I'm an island. My dream is a bright room with a desk next to a window with a view and a morning of unstructured time to work, think, read, and listen. The best nap I ever took was on a sunny day in a park in Madrid. ~* 2.08.20 *~ This weekend I saw two beautiful things: http://duskjacket.com/static/ice.jpg ~ a broken window on the sidewalk http://duskjacket.com/static/tadpoles.html ~ a sheet of ice on a rock melting with water droplets like tadpoles I also just finished a candle, made a curry, and completed some work. ~* 2.24.20 *~ Two images from this weekend: http://duskjacket.com/static/2-22-20/ A.) A trophy store with a prominently displayed clock... really love this but I don't know why they decided to do it. Perhaps a community service like a town clock? Or maybe some allegory for sports, victory, and marking memorable moments in time? B.) I smelled spring for the first time this weekend, and the light is becoming stronger : ) ~* 2.29.20 *~ An image and a video from this weekend: http://duskjacket.com/static/2-29-20/ A + B.) I hiked in a snowy forest in Vermont on a day that only exists every 4 years ~ it felt like an appropriately special way to mark it. ~* 3.07.20 *~ Two images from this past weekend: http://duskjacket.com/static/3-7-20/ A.) A note by Christina Kim from an exhibition of Boro textiles at Japan Society. I want to take better notes. B.) Time is money : ) ~* 3.16.20 *~ Two images from this past weekend: http://duskjacket.com/static/3-16-20/ A.) trying not to feel too isolated while isolating myself B.) =^.^= ~* 3.23.20 *~ Three images from this weekend: http://duskjacket.com/static/3-23-20/ A.) Working on a bread resource for friends: https://duskjacket.com/static/culture-care/ lmk if you'd like me to send you some starter! email: [email protected] B.) More sunbeam naps C.) Limited time outdoors but still finding beautiful scenes : ) ~* 4.7.20 *~ Two images of the same thing from this weekend: http://duskjacket.com/static/4-7-20/ A., B.) Two images side by side displaying a fingerprint left on a leaf.
