inspiration tuesday.

i encourage you to explore the gems over at The Commons, a showcase of public photography archives on Flickr. right now, i am so drawn to writing history with the light, so to speak, looking into the eyes of our ancestors and seeing their stories spill out on to the paper.

ALSO, i am feeling mega-inspired by a new project i have in the works. {more later, i promise.} AND i am in heaven right now. seattle is bathed in sunlight and light breezes. it is seventy-two degrees.

What is inspiring you today, my dears?

peace. & LOVE.
