Right now. A moment that doesn’t mean much at all. There aren’t many moments that mean something specific or momentous. But right now I’m feeling. Just feeling something. Listening to the newest album of my very favorite band and savoring every note that goes through the headphones and into my ears. Looking at the little brown and black cardboard notebook in front of me and looking forward to picking up my perfectly-pointed black pen and writing in it, because it says the word “journal” on the front. Feeling the perfect and perfectly strange warm and cold winds flowing through the one open window in my dorm room and feeling that I’m perfectly dressed for both – tank top and long pajama-bottoms.
The music pierces my very core, feels like it’s flowing right into my brain. There is an atmosphere that surrounds me, an unclear one that simply points at a new type of normalcy that I’m not yet used to. The space is still too new for me to feel utterly at home in, but still, my bed in its new sheets and with the new duvet spread on it lies behind me, inviting and warm, a place that feels like my own little den.
There’s absolutely nothing special about this moment. But that’s the point. It’s just now.

great imagry, soothing words
I agree with Chloe. This has terrific imagery. I can almost see you sitting there in your tank top and pj bottoms. I’m hoping all is going well for you and you are settling in nicely and getting used to things. So far, how do you like living on this side of the big pond?
I like it! It was difficult at first, but things are getting better :).
I like this post, Em! Per usual, you’re fabulous, dah-ling.
Yes, really :^)
I like this too…makes me think (doesn’t happen often) 🙂
Best to live each one for what it is as you are doing. Hope all is well your way.
