Such a pretty space.
Twice in the last two weeks, I woke up, read the news and immediately cried. I cannot believe we are where we are on so many fronts…it is so disheartening to know there are people (including our President) out there who are fanning the fire of division and hate. My boss, at my day job, was in Las Vegas at the concert last week…her tale of escaping the shooting is terrifying…she was with her teenage daughter. I cried hearing her story too. My friend VA’s family home was devastated in the hurricanes in the Caribbean. My good friend CF just had to move her wedding from Napa due to the raging fires. It is too much.
What is my take away here? I would love to wrap this one up with a bow. I can’t really wrap it up neatly…but I can try to wrap it up. I knew it would get awkward for me to address current events on this site…I like telling entertaining humorous stories with a good beginning, middle and a positive end. I don’t have a perfect end to this one yet.
Maybe I just want you all to know…I am not clueless about the world. I also respect differing opinions. This, however, will not become a current events blog. I want to continue blogging in these times about design. I need to do it to recharge…and maybe through these images of places and things we find beautiful, we can all feel a sense of togetherness, community, and recharging – all key to reaffirming our common bonds.
Happy Thursday! We will get through these times together! We have to!
