what happens when i turn off the internets






Friday night I found myself without any plans, which is nice. Unintentionally, I fell into this really sweet blissful mood where I wanted to rearrange the guest room. It was already about 11 o'clock at night when I started, but I turned on the radio and listened to a really cool radio show called The Signal on CBC Radio that was playing the most beautiful, spare and experiemental music. I spent the next few hours hanging dresses and pictures, moving furniture, going through drawers and finding little things, organizing the closet, trying on dresses I had not put on yet and it felt so calming and almost trance-like. And when I was done the fruits of my labor looked like the above. I took the photos the next morning and basically wanted to spend the whole day in the guest room...
