Looking back over some of my recent posts, I realize it must seem like I live in an unrealistic, rose-tinted dream bubble where my life is always peachy keen and nothing can go wrong! I figured I should clarify why I’ve chosen to never bring any negativity to this blog. Like any normal person, I have my bad days, but I’ve made a conscious point to not use this blog, or my twitter or facebook for that matter, as a venting forum to complain about whatever silly or negative thing annoys me on a given day. Honestly, I find it really strange when people use social media to complain about their personal lives. From the start, I wanted this blog and my posts to be a place to reflect on the beautiful things and moments that bring me joy, rather than wallow in the personal little miseries that are better left far, far away from a “share” button! Anyway, there’s my little spiel. Enjoy these pretty pictures! xo
The title of this post is taken from a beautiful novel written by Kazuo Ishiguro. I wrote the bulk of my Master’s dissertation on it a few years ago, but most of all, it’s just one of those books that stays with you. In many ways, the novel is a celebration of fleeting moments of beauty and pleasure, as well as a warning that without these things, the world becomes a very dark and meaningless place. I’ll spare you of any more literary mumbo-jumbo, and instead share with you the kind of “floating world” that Ishiguro inspires – one where afternoons are suspended, artists of all kinds congregate, and the world is painted with a palette of soft hues . . .
Have a beautiful weekend . . .
