dear kaylee,

last night
I put my head on the pillow
with full intentions of attending a photo gallery opening
the next day, at 10am

today, 10am comes around, I’ve slept well
I’ve eaten breakfast and made my bed
I’m feeling renewed and prepared to wander the streets of new farm
after surrounding myself with some kick-ass photography

instead, I find myself invited for coffee
with my dear friend and his gorgeous little boy
we stroll to the local cafe down the road
basking in the morning sun rays
and listening to planes fly overhead

an intention I set for myself recently
is to infuse more and more play into my everyday
I want to stop taking life so seriously
but still be taken seriously

if seriously means not doing things that make my inner child happy
if seriously means dulling down my creativity
if seriously means sacrificing my curiosity
I’m not interested

so this morning
with 10am long gone
I’m invited by a curious little seven year old
to play with his lego on his bedroom floor

I follow him and ask
“what do you want me to make?!”

his heart-warming reply
“I want you to make whatever you want to!”

so I sit down
on the damn bedroom floor
and I engage my inner child
to create whatever I want to create

I’m submitting to life a little more
going with the flow
circulating my energy

how are you?

all my love,
