So one phenomenal thing about the internet, to me, is how much heartstopping magic is out there that we’d never know about, really. I feel like almost every day there is something that actually makes my heart hurt with joy or recognition or just plain human bedazzlement, this wonder at what we are and what we can create, and something I can’t put my finger on – for those of you who read Emily of New Moon as wee ones, the flash — I can’t even describe it, I actually feel like I am hyperventilating & it’s not just “oh, that’s cool.” but more like this is something that is fundamentally integral to my being on this planet and how we are all woven together.
For some reason this is coming to me: I had a dream once where I was somewhere far away, like Iceland or Mars or something, and a woman walked into the room and I was SO excited to see her, and was filled with a warm recognition and joy and we embraced and just felt good knowing the other was there. When I woke up, I realized where I recognized her from – another dream I’d had years ago.
Anyway. Here are some recent glimpses into the magical underpinnings of our universal mythology ~
2. Nationaal Archief of the Netherlands ~ Maybe it’s just that Dutch is so amazing : Spook op de Zeedijk? Come on. But maybe it’s the fistfuls of PANTHERS or the performing bears (must rescue) or babies in wooden shoes.
4. Sanna Annukka, Marimekko, & the Kalevala ~ Um, yes. Please. I was freaking about this last year, and now it’s out!! Not that I can afford the panel below, sigh. Speaking of Marimekko, I mini-splurged on this today. Thanks, Vivi.
5. This is not really 5, but there’s a clear theme here I did not notice until I made this list. That’s a little odd. Hello, cosmic hum!! Likewise, I noticed today that when I thrift, I tend to gather groupings of colors – not on purpose, and they don’t match between days, just THAT day’s thrifts all blend together in this totally magical way. It’s really odd. I’m going to start documenting them, I think, but I’m totally bad at taking photos of piles of fabric in my silly dark house. Here is today’s.
What makes you have this feeling? What synchronicities have you been noticing?
