While others were focused on getting the mandatory equinox shot (perfectly lined palm trees with the centered sunrise), I was noticing the calmness of the water and clouds reflecting in the water. So, naturally, I went to check it out, and behold, the water was calm, and in the distance, little fluffy clouds were dancing in the sky. I loved seeing clouds' movement and its reflection in the water.
Oh, and yes, I definitely wanted to capture that perfectly well lined tree-line and sunrise for the equinox.

I had a really amazing boss when I was 17 who was insistent there were right and wrong ways to say words. Elocution wasn’t the point — it was that some words you should always say sweetly and some words you let tear through you. For instance, you always say love kindly. You always say fuck from a deep guttural place, and you say it loudly. And then she’d have us practice. “Say it with conviction, Laura. It has to mean something. Let it pull stuff out of you.” This winter lasted, like, four years. So I’ve been practicing the difference between words that rip ugly shit out of you and words that are only ever drenched in honey.
It’s probably the best advice and cheapest therapy I’ve ever been offered. (It’s also very fun.)
Here’s some ~spring vibes~ for your feed. Here’s to warmer weather and brighter colors!

I love wandering down new streets and finding awe-inspiring mind blowing fierce stunning beautiful art like this. How can one adjective describe it!! 😍
Ah NYC, I guess you're winning me over a little bit...
Cheers to the first day of spring 🌱
Trying to remember what warmer days were like instead of this dreadful snowstorm headed NY's way.
Enjoy this pretty hummingbird from St. Lucia.
You fall, you rise, you make mistakes, you live, you learn. You’re human, not perfect. You’ve been hurt, but you’re alive. Think of what a precious privilege it is to be alive—to breathe, to think, to enjoy, and to chase the things you love. Sometimes there is sadness in our journey, but there is also lots of beauty. We must keep putting one foot in front of the other even when we hurt, for we will never know what is waiting for us just around the bend. ❤️
Currently, I am laying on a military cot in the Bodø Airport. Our last flight into the Lofoten Islands got canceled, so we are stuck in the airport for the night. But get ready for tomorrow, because we will be getting to Lofoten and going crazy! Still beyond stoked on this adventure
