“As I thought of these things, I drew aside the curtains and looked out into the darkness, and it seemed to my troubled fancy that all those little points of light filling the sky were the furnaces of innumerable divine alchemists, who labour continually, turning lead into gold, weariness into ecstasy, bodies into souls, the darkness into God; and at their perfect labour my mortality grew heavy, and I cried out, as so many dreamers and men of letters in our age have cried, for the birth of that elaborate spiritual beauty which could alone uplift souls weighted with so many dreams.”
Planning our next trip to Japan for the spring time! Took this at a shinto shrine last time we were there- I'm so amazed by how sacred places go untouched for centuries, and every species of moss & lichen grows all over everything. This is where I belong 😊⠀
First official post of Tokyo, Japan. The city was exactly what I expected. I loved Tokyo and I loved immersing myself in their culture even if it was only for four days. I don’t feel like I had nearly enough time to truly experience the city which was disappointing but it just made me want to plan another trip to Japan sometime in the near future...
When you ask a 11 year old to take a photo for you ✌🏻
Sometimes I think HMMM maybe I should have kids so I can make them do things for me like take photos and play with my dogs and do the dishes. And then I hang out with my friends who have kids and they laugh at me for thinking that 😂 Maybe if I try hard enough my dogs can learn to take photos for me. Gumbo already turns the lights on and off and picks things up for me 🤔 #imlazy#dontjudgeme
