In this 21st century, fast paced, need it…want it…got to have it, can’t live without it world in which we exist, I’m compelled to think about things that are worth savoring. Things that will ground me in the moment. While I desperately want November 2nd to arrive, to move into my new home, to sleep in my own bed – I imagine that bed calling out to me in muffled desperation, accusations of neglect and abandonment flying from inside the storage unit in Allston – “you said it would be just a few short months” – it’s already been three months, and three more before this nomad crawls onto her beloved PranaSleep mattress, lies spread eagle across it, it gives it a warm embrace. If you knew how much I love my bed, you could forgive me for wanting November to arrive quickly, but that would mean the end of summer, and I am not anxious for it to come to a close so quickly. One must submerge oneself in summer here in New England. It should not be rushed, but truly be appreciated – the taste of the salt in the air, the beautiful buoyancy of floating in the sea, the intoxicating scent of honeysuckle, lilac, and rosa rugosa should not be missed. But one must still be participatory in this century, soooooo my ode to the instant is the launch of my Instagram Account. Follow me at: jackiefalla and see where my week takes me.
Charles Bukowski said “Some moments are nice, some are nicer, and some are even worth writing about”. I think some moments are captivating, some are more captivating, and some are even worth sharing on Instagram.
I hope this week brings moments worth savoring. Bon Appetit!
