Botanical Tattoos

Lately I can't stop thinking about getting a tattoo, and I have been really drawn to plant life. I love the work of tattoo artists Pis Saro - it's so delicate and realistic. Maybe I need to go to the Crimea and get her to tattoo me.


Hummingbirds in Slow Motion

This is pretty incredible.

I Think My Life is Passing Me By

Life can disappear on us just like a cup of coffee consumed on autopilot. In other words, to really experience life itself, as opposed to just more thinking about life, we need to remember we’re having an experience.
-David Cain

I have had this thought more than once in the past five years. As I let my life get busier and busier, I realized one day that I had no idea what I had done with myself yesterday, the past week, or the past year. Everything was a blur, because it was crammed so full nothing sunk in. I'd like to say that this realization woke me up and I immediately changed my ways, but that is so not true. I am still working on how to lead a life where I actually get to experience my experiences. It's hard.

This blog post reminded me.
