Wednesday, February 26

I’ve gotten used to sleeping with my curtains peeled back ever so slightly. I can see a little rectangle of sky when I lay in bed. In the morning the sun nudges my shoulder as I scramble to wake up and start my day. It’s become such a comfort to see my little corner of the sky each night. My black curtains sweep across the entire window, making my room a fortress. But with that small little crack for me to peer up and out of, I can watch the night move and change. I love feeling so small as I lay in my oversized bed. I love feeling so connected even in the detached moments of half sleep.

The best part is the tree. The tree that is sturdy and stable in a way I know I cannot be right now. I can’t explain why seeing that tree makes me less afraid of the dark or why it makes me feel that everything will be ok if I breathe a little deeper. I’m not sturdy. I’m as looped and changing as my record player, singing melancholy song after melancholy song and the gothic clouds mold themselves across the sky and peek at me from behind the arms of my ever present tree.

  1. This is beautiful. I felt as though I was looking through your curtains and I could feel that tree's sturdiness push through me. We all need that little piece of sky.

  2. This is absolutely beautiful, the kind of thing you read twice, because you can't take in all the beauty of it in one go.

  3. your words always get me, em. i sleep with my curtains open too. there is something so beautiful about the night sky, and it makes getting up in the morning that little bit easier too (i find) x

  4. If I can't sleep with my window open I suffocate.

  5. I am ashamed to admit that I haven't been by since you put up the new header. But I love it.
    And hello.

  6. Within one's world, lies a happy little kingdom. :)

  7. i went from sleeping in a room with an east facing window, to one facing north. we keep the blinds and curtains shut tight to keep the bitter winter cold out. my soul misses waking up in the sunshine on the weekends.

  8. Most people think of hair plays a critical part of their personal style. We all want to have healthy hair, luxurious head of hair, but some of us always have dull and flat-looking hair.
