Hyperbole and a half is back! And she's talking about the Big D... Depression. I read this at work and started crying because often that's pretty much how I feel. And to people who have never experienced depression it's so easy to say "just look on the bright side". This is so important to talk about and to not feel ashamed about. This is reality.
These people live and work in a landfill and have found a way to make musical instruments out of rubbish. And they are amazing. It fills up my heart.
I've lived in London and reading this list made me have a physical yearning for that city that I love. I had no job, no money, and only 1.5 friends so it wasn't an easy time but that city is one of my heart homes...
Sometimes I like to have a base that is monochromatic, with a bit of texture.
Then splash on colour with shoes, blazers and necklace...
And then walk home unexpectedly in this get up. Looks pretty. Not great for exercise, really.

(There must have been a strong wind inside this day. I'm always leaning to the same side!)
Today I'm thankful for the ability to walk home. I really enjoy it and love being about to be in my head and in my body at the same time as being outside. It's such a good way to connect to the city that you're in.
When I wear something a little bit out there (for instance, this much colour) the ladies at work just say "Oh! You have a funky sense of style!"
So, all in all, working for "The Man" hasn't yet changed my style... I hope.

Today I'm grateful I bought this dress in 2006 in Ireland. I mostly got it as a joke because the colours were too much. But I love it now and get so much wear out of it. Sometimes you just have to take a chance!
Today I had the sad business of going to a funeral. It's very sad and scary when you friends parents start to die. It's also nice to be able to celebrate the life of a good man with old friends and many people who loved him and his family.
This was a Jewish funeral and I'd never been to one before. It was very simple and beautiful. My friend and her brother got up and spoke about their dad. They did such a wonderful job. I don't know how they kept it together. After the ceremony we accompanied the family to the burial plot. It was really nice the way the rabbi said that we were walking along with her dad on his final journey. After a few words the family and friends were invited to place 3 shovelfuls of earth onto the casket. It was so final but there was something so right about being returned to the earth...

Today I am thankful for family and friends and the cycle of life.
Lover of naps, cuddles, wine on patios, travelling, shoes, friends in near and far off places, food, blogs, dancing and most of all giggling.
Philosophy: We are here for such a short time. Shouldn't we be using it to take good care of each other? Shouldn't we have small adventures while we are planning big ones? Shouldn't we all encourage and share our magical talents? Shouldn't we be filling the world with nothing but lovely things?
Yes! Just jump if you have the courage, just jump and be happy!
