Reflected Grief

I found a new tumblr called Unfuck Your Habitat which I really adore. It's aimed at taking small amounts of time to clean things up, focusing on people who are busy, stressed, have physical difficulties, or other reasons why sustained cleaning is a challenge. I love how the internet has opened up these kinds of conversations - for the messy, the individual, and the tolerant. I'm trying to seek out more of these places to combat the gross injustices I often see online and offline, like Captain Awkward's Advice Blog. The light and beautiful in the world is a shimmering impermanence, like the sun at noontime. It poises for a moment up high before dipping back down toward the earth... though really, what happens is the earth goes spinning in circles, sending the light out of sight. A lot of what we see is a matter of perspective and experience entwined; a combination of the personal and the abstracted. I'm becoming increasingly aware of the importance of what we surround ourselves with - both in terms of the cleanliness of a home and the people who speak in our ears and the thoughts we invite in to entertain us.
