I’ve been freelancing at a creative agency for the last couple of weeks. It’s quite an interesting jump from running my own business to being back in that kind of world. Really lovely people to be around though.
This weekend I did a whole lot of nothing. It’s what I needed. I did however pick some flowers from the garden and thoughtfully arranged them. Ikebana is an ancient form of art and meditation in Japan. It’s something I’ve enjoyed since I was a kid, but I of course didn’t know what it was way back then. I just used to walk around barefoot in my childhood garden snipping off lavender, azaleas (the leaves so sticky), ferns and nasturtiums. I would then sit on my front porch and take my time with arranging them just so. Then off to proudly present them to my mum because that’s who they were always, always for.
