When it rains, I love it.

Let’s embrace Swedish melancholy. Embracing rain is a good start.

“Melancholy shouldn’t be confused with depression. Melancholy is an active state. When we’re melancholic, we feel uneasy with the way things are, the status quo, the conventions of our society. We yearn for a deeper, richer relationship with the world. And in that yearning, we’re forced to explore the potential within ourselves – a potential we might not have explored if we were simply content. Through our melancholy we come up with new ways of seeing the world and new ways of being in the world. Melancholy and creativity go together like ebony and ivory on a piano.”

I enjoy moments longing as much as I enjoy the moments of being in love. I sit comfortably in both places.  Of course, it is always better to be on the love side of the line, but nevertheless, you can make some really great things happen when you are in a state of longing. Its good to be empathetic, vulnerable and wired to your heart for a bit.

I longed for one of these beautiful rain jackets for about 6 months. The longing did not go away so I figured it must be love. It was. I love my Stutterheim jacket.

I am smitten with these. Keep the things you need in a place made for looking for things….

Sieve and Oil Can Set

Sieve for him

Reuse a sieve to help you find the things that sometimes you might be looking for. The oil can is just so much prettier empty and adds that touch of industrial flare we upcycling tree huggers seem to love.
