there’s nothing more serene
than the sun in the windows
the quiet light
that illuminates everything
and says nothing

for once
day is

Inspiration at 12:49am
wakes you up more than any cold shower
runs faster through your bloodstream than any drug
and especially if unwarranted
empowers you
more than any dream come true

Poem assignment in my literature class alluding to Tim O’Brien’s The Things They Carried. The most satisfying thing I’ve written in a while.

Audrey Hepburn and Peter O’Toole filming How to Steal a Million in Paris, France, 1965. 

I have a really, really odd obsession with this film.

Treat her better, boy
If having her at your side’s something you enjoy
If having her in your life’s really so important to you now

I recently bought myself my own sketchbook and I’ve been trying my hand at a different style of drawing.

I rescanned some old Disneyland negatives. 

Shaky hands, blurry photos, but just as vivid memories.

I’m currently experimenting with GIF making as a different way to display my photos. I like them a lot. And they’re fun.
more cute gifs here

because I’m not in any position right now to be taking pictures on a regular basis I’ve resorted to digging through my archives for old photos I’d forgotten about to mess with and store in my drafts

y’all will see
