i wish i had galoshes

It seems the weather here is stuck in a gloomy state, so I turned to one of my favorite poets to lighten everything up. I absolutely love his style. I felt this poem was appropriate.

in Just-
spring when the world is mud-
luscious the little lame baloonman

whistles far and wee

and eddieandbill come
running from marbles and
piracies and it's

when the world is puddle-wonderful

the queer
old baloonman whistles
far and wee
and bettyandisbel come dancing

from hop-scotch and jump-rope and


baloonMan whistles

- e.e. cummings

quote love

She started writing notes and keeping them under her pillow, and then she started writing them on her pillowcase, hoping they would help her have better dreams. And if she couldn’t sleep, she could just read them and be reminded of something so stunningly beautiful that her heart would swell and her bones would sigh and for just a second, the world would not seem like it was going to crush her

make a statement

These statement pieces I found via jenniferloiselle on etsy are extraordinary. Handmade in London, each headband and necklace is unique in its own right, and sure to turn heads.
