feather lightness.



After spending much of yesterday's sun trying to fix my poor, overloaded computer, I started thinking of... well, feather boas, of course. Pretty, soft things, a tad luxurious and bit ridiculous--in equal parts.

It's safe to say: Sometimes feathers work as my personal Calgon, take me away moment. (Am I dating myself to reference Calgon at my moment of saving?)

What do you think about when you feel the need to get away?

I love Faiza's obsession with French fries; it's so funny! I have no idea who or what Calgon is. :) My mind usually goes straight to the beach when I need to be calm or centered . . . that is, either the beach or wine. :)

I love that! I think about the sea whenever I need to escape. And sometimes the mountains...the Canadian Rockies specifically. The majestic snow capped mountains with beautiful turquoise colored lakes just takes my breath away. Instant relaxation :)

Bubble baths, books, tea out of a proper tea pot, walking along the shoreline..

I love these feathers! I actually think about hot bubble baths and candles, kinda cheesy I know, but that's my thing! XO!

I think about mountains and wide open spaces. Big skies and cool breezes... *sigh* what I wouldn't give to be hiking today...

Nicole said...

i think about long runs, trails, and my couch!

I think about the ocean, the beach on a nice and calm day, sometimes its grey and stormy (which I like) but other times it's blue and green and sunny and calm.

Lana said...

I think about being out in nature, somewhere on the mountain and then I can feel calm and gratitude. Have a great day!

I was so there for Calgon take me away. I feel so less alone now :)

When I need to get away I'm always on Kauai in my mind...so I might as well just move there since I'm there mentally A LOT lately. sigh

When I feel the need to get away I go for an extended walk in the woods. xoxo

I like this alot! I have a tattoo of a feather morphing into crows. It is a peaceful reminder to me about certain things.

Oh, I find music always calms me down. Or laying in the dark, or sitting in a shower fully clothed...
