Serenade: Pablo Neruda

Cradled Moon, a celestial fine art photograph by OR Photography

Cradled Moon

Serenade
With my hand I gather this emptiness,
imponderable night, starry families,
a chorus quieter than silence,
a sound of the moon, some secret, a triangle,
a chalk trapeziod.
It is the oceanic night, the third solitude,
a quivering that opens doors, wings,
the profound population that isn’t here
throbs overflowing the names of the estuary.

Night, name of the sea, fatherland, root, rose!

– Pablo Neruda

Free Spirit: Sasha Pivovarova for Free People April 2011

I am so longing for warm spring days free of drizzle and rain! These lovely, carefree, bohemian looks from the April 2011 Free People catalog featuring Sasha Pivovarova are exactly what I wish I was wearing right now (and please, throw in a baby white tiger or peacock or two…)!

San Francisco, Darkly

These recent days of mist and rain reminded me of pictures I took a few months ago in and around San Francisco (at the Palace of Fine Arts, Civic Center, and the Bay Bridge, respectively).  They all have a dark melancholy about them that seems to fit the current mood quite nicely.

Office Space

I believe you have my stapler…

So, we have a smallish office space (or very large closet, depending on how you look at it) in our apartment that has been begging to be transformed into something awesome since, well, since we moved in over 7 months ago. I’ve been craving a little creative work space of my own and think it might be time to start envisioning the space’s potential (chalkboard paint anyone??). The boyfriend will also be needing his own work area so we will need to find a way to turn this into a his & hers co-working space. These are some spaces and inspiration boards that have begun to get my creative juices flowing…
