Sunny Daze

With fall upon us, I have been taking the extra time to truly enjoy what the beginning of this season has to offer. Fun photo days are something I genuinely look forward to. They always seem to lift my spirits and spark creativity. From searching for a good location, to funny photos, to getting the perfect shot, to getting home and having a drink while looking through all of the pictures from the day. It all has some serious meaning and it makes life more enjoyable.

Yesterday was a beautiful day, the sun was shining, and the fresh air was rejuvenating. Spending the whole day adventuring and embracing my inner model, it was truly one of the best days I’ve had in a long while. Nowadays, everyone is talking about self-love and self-care, mental health days, etc. Being able to take that time to relax and genuinely just have fun, no pressure, no worries. That to me is the greatest form of self-care.

It’s been hard lately with the uncertainty that is the world right now, and quite honestly, the uncertainty that is my life. My dream is to travel, to have fun, to experience, and to love. Yet as a currently unemployed young adult, with a very short resume… I’ve had some bad days. No one prepares you for the harshness of the world, and no one prepares you for a global pandemic, climate change, or any of the other plagues of society. However, I am truly, trying my damnedest, to embrace life and enjoy the present.

I hope you are able to enjoy your own sunny daze.

Below are a few of the bloopers I hold dear.

  1. The harshness of the world continues to knock me sideways at times –
    and after what feels like a long time “on hold” somehow, the prospect of a kind of fresh love and travel (even in the midst of all this scary stuff) is showing itself here in my life too (though in a bit of a tangled way, as life tends to do).

    The day the option of simply having gone gets truly stomped on, what have we left?

    I want a world with engagingly crazy smiles in creatively wild pictures… and pictures that makes us want to be the most adorable alien in the room.

    I dunno much about influencing, but I know inspiration when I see it.

    1. You seem like a poet in life, more than a poet just on your blog. It’s truly inspiration to me to read this, and feel the words so completely. I appreciate this, it brought a huge smile to my face and a feeling of understanding to my heart. It may sound strange, but it really just means so much. Thank you for seeing something, in a world where most people just glide past genuine experience.

      1. Well that’s the most beautiful thing I have read in a long time.
        That’s one of those… “if everything else goes totally pear-shaped from here, what I have just seen will somehow make it all ok” moments.

        This piece (originally written for my mum, not long before she died) has floated around here and there over the past few years. Maybe it’d look good among awesome aliens…

        The treasure on fingertips

        I saw a miracle,
        shining out through tired eyes
        and a smile
        that could still discover distant stars…

        even in me.

        I saw a miracle,
        spellbound by her fragile,
        fearful magic
        into a world
        whose borders crumbled in a chair.

        Lighting my Universe with smiles.

        Forgiving me for killing them.

        Every now and then,
        she’d squeeze my fingers,
        just to remind me
        that holding my hand
        would always be the fastest way to freedom.

        I watched waves
        and stars
        and thunderclouds
        roll in
        across her shoreline…

        and I’ve seen such sunsets in her wake…

        but the sky still searches for her fingertips.


    1. Thank you for taking the time to check them out, compassion and empathy are somethings that we as humans need to thrive. I hope to see more of it in the coming years.
