My little apartment makes me claustrophobic. Its drives me crazy some days. Even my kitty stood at the front door and wondered where the rest of the house was. She thought I locked her in a closet. In truth my house is just the size of a closet but it is very hard to explain that to a cat.
Some days I get so claustrophobic that I make my boyfriend "walk Me." I am so well behaved I don't even need a leash. :) Yesterday was a walking day...
With no direction, no goal, and no one but myself, I set out for the sake of exploration (And to find my sanity once again.) Two and a half hours later I arrived home with a handful of photos and a understanding of why it is important to avoid the ghetto at night. What I found after the time spent meandering could be summed up as lessons from the soul.
#1: water Heals the Soul.
I think this one is self explanatory. Whenever I feel stuck in the city, I go to water. This might just be my childhood instincts growing up by a lake, but I feel instantly relived at the sight of any form of liquid.
#2: It's Time to Bloom.
Literally. Yep it is only February 5th and yet the cherry blossoms are beginning to bloom already. If mother nature is ready for rebirth, than I am too.
#3: Never Put your Camera Away Too Soon...
Or you might miss something. For me, I almost missed this little Todo dog and this amazing fence he guarded. The owner of the pup thought I was insane when he found me on the ground snapping photos. No worries however. I asked if I could take the pics (After the fact. Better late than never.)
