Oh my. I just feel like I am wasting away. All the work at the end of the school year (and my undergrad career) is making my stomach hurt. I know it'll all be over soon and I'm doing my best to stay calm. Today I found some lovely things that I wanted to share. These kinds of things help me remember there is life beyond my immediate situation. I mean that literally: this is all about plants--living, growing, inspiring.
The first thing is a series called "Great Gardens" by Nowness. It is just a collection of videos of great gardens. The films are so beautifully shot and the voices of the owners and landscapers are so calming and passionate. This series is amazing and it makes me want to drop out right now and help them make these. Also: did you know there is a career called "Garden Writing"? What have I been doing all this time if not that?
The second is the Pentecost Rose Petal Ceremony at the Pantheon in Rome. It symbolizes the descent of the Holy Spirit. Is this not one of the most magical things ever?
