My life is strange and beautiful lately. Sometimes I wake up, and am paralysed in my bed for a little while. I look around my room, and the things around me begin to change, until they resemble something else entirely. I lay there, unmoving, as I hallucinate, and am unafraid. I think I see a giant cockroach on the other end of my room, and become fascinated by it. In reality it is just my wardrobe. Last night I thought I saw a bearded man’s face, with a blue-glass eye, coming out of my wall. It was merely my chest of drawers. I know exactly why this is happening, and there is no need for anyone to worry. Even though it might sound like a frightening experience, it really isn’t. Not to me. I am used to vivid dreaming, and living in a world of my own imagining. I know it will pass, and I am in no great hurry for it to do so.
So much has happened in the last few weeks that I cannot process yet, cannot articulate. I know I will need to, at some point, try to MAKE SOMETHING out of everything I have seen and done – but for now I am just so grateful for the turn my life has taken, and to be living it. This is a fertile period, where everything is happening so fast and so unpredictably that I cannot get enough distance to analyse it. I am in the eye of a beautiful storm. I would not know where to begin, so for now I won’t try. Just listen to Daughter instead. Corinne recommended them to me, and now I’m hooked.
In other, more practical news, the date for the Cardiff meet-up has been set for 28th of September. I have never planned a meet-up before, so if it’s shit I take full responsibility. Hopefully it will be awesome, and a bunch of cool girls will all have a great time and go away saying ‘Geez, Holly sure knows how to throw a meet-up!’ and I’ll feel extremely vindicated. Thanks goes to Carrie for jumping on board (I can’t wait to meet you oh my goooodddddd) and if you guys could help me spread the word (via Twitter, Facebook, your blogs, word of mouth, whatever) then that would also be super-rad, and I’d be super-grateful. And finally, another thing I should thank all of you for! I recently spotted myself on the Top Blogs chart on Bloglovin, in the Photography category. As of right now, I’m number 44. I’m extremely shocked and flattered, and I wish I could hug the shit out of every single one of you. Over and out.
