September | MI

I’ve been distracted lately. It’s been purposeful. I have a hard time dealing with emotion, particularly my own so I seek out other avenues to direct my attention and energy. I’ve been outdoors a lot, distracting myself with particularly “good” things but occasionally in a moment of silence or reverent thought I begin to fully grasp the loss I’ve experienced. I’m void of a partner, of love. It’s strange going from sharing every aspect of your life with someone to having no one. It’s lonesome knowing that your point of view is entirely insignificant.

I’m not sure what the point of this post is other than reflection so really don’t mind me.

On another note, I’ve been listening to Neutral Milk Hotel quite often as of late and one thing that’s been sticking with me is their verse: “How strange it is to be anything at all.” How truly, truly strange being is.

I have been having such a hard time connecting and communicating with people as of late. I feel adrift, like my consciousness and body have somehow separated and there is a break between what I think and what I feel. It is as if I am physically incapable of attachment, mentally detached from my heart.

I went to the forest yesterday and it was pure magic. So many beautiful late summer blooms peacefully residing in harmony with the changing fall leaves.

It feels like my life is falling to shambles at my feet and I can do nothing but idly watch.

Lovely late summer days call for dresses that match the sky and forest frolicking in search of plant friends and warm patches of sunlight from above.

I’ve been aloof lately. School has me in a tizzy, taking two theory classes in one semester was likely not my brightest idea but I know I’ll come out of the semester a hell of a lot more informed and ahead of the game.
Anyway, to help cope with the madness I’ve taken two long weekends recently. Keep your eyes peeled for photographs. Though my minds a mess my eyes have been seeing much and my feet have been traveling far.

Dizzy, busy, tizzy.

Camping out in my head to escape the storms below.

Yesterday was my last day of Summer vacation before my first Fall semester at a new University begins. My friend Dillon and I took a trip to Bay City and we bought lots of yummy candies at the candy shop. Later we walked around the State Park, went on swings (I love to swing), and threw a beautiful bonfire for our friends to commemorate the final days of Summer.

Yesterday was good and I would like to do it again please.
