Really needed a visual treat today—thank god I found Mike Perry. These images are from his 2009 project, simply titled Garden, and I have been staring at them for awhile. Thanks for the daydreams, Mike.

This eclipse is all about relationships. Libra = balance, which is how good relationships are formed and maintained. The eclipse shines a light (irony) into the shadowy corners of our partnerships, and forces us to address issues that may have been previously ignored—all for the sake of balance. Allow this lunar shift to provide you with the clarity and courage to face the future head on, leaving old, stale problems in the past. Clear out emotional clutter, allow yourself to feel and manifest the life you were meant to live. And, above all, love and love and love. Yourself, your partner, your life. Love it all in the purest way possible.

Lots more here.

Artist Phillip K. Smith III's super reflective (so punny!) installation in Joshua Tree, CA. 

"Lucid Stead is about tapping into the quiet and the pace of change in the desert," says Smith. "When you slow down and align yourself with the desert, the project begins to unfold before you. It revealed that it is about light and shadow, reflected light, projected light, and change."

Earthly sparkles. Please excuse the shower curtain, a replacement search is imminent.

Yesterday I...

Wandered aimlessly while sipping iced coffee
Picked lilac and sprigs of rosemary from neighboring gardens
Tested my friend's family-made, all natural skincare line
Discovered a new cafe for weekday writing
Made the best chocolate chip cookies
Read about the many uses of essential oils on a blanket in the park
Unearthed this butterfly app and amused myself for too long, probably.
