Bowie on the Road | My Dark Night of the Soul + the Ephemeral Beauty of Flowers

article image placeholderUploaded by @bowie
So I got a little taste of that when I had the chance to go to the Chicago Botanic Gardens and it was beautiful just to walk around, get lost there, stare at the incredible colors and ephemeral life of these beautiful flowers. And it did give me a little more peace and energy as I made my way back into the city. I would be lying if I said I was excited to go to another city next. I'm not quite there yet

Weather patterns of your soul

And I just love that you went towards nature because nature is so resilient, and it teaches us so much about a constancy on some levels that beauty will emerge from a little tiny seed. And that's what flowers are. And it's it sounds super corny. But I embrace it all the time. I'm looking out right now to a stormy patch of sky with rain coming down and the water in front of me here out in Massachusetts

Enjoy the ride… miss you ❤️

I'm hoping it's going to be much brighter and all kinds of wonderful adventures. Come your way. I know this is about your thing, but I was just curious about how you posted the swell thing on Instagram. Maybe I should look into it. That was really cool. Posting a voice note on Instagram. I was like, did she do a video screenshot? What did she do? That was super cool. So I just want to let you know that

@bookishpodcast regarding the video share feature :)

And then if it's not the first one, then whichever one it is, you touch it. Push, pause because it'll start playing and then push the little share. Looks like a little rectangle with an arrow pointing out of it, I believe. And then just share video and then it'll say Share video. Yes. Download. When you download it, your phone will kind of open up a different area and and save it to your phone and then you just upload it to Instagram

@bookishpodcast 💙

I'm going to do a review of my cabin stay, so keep an ear out for that. It was really interesting and also too. I missed you all at the club as well. Travel is definitely cutting into my reading time, and I am so behind on my reading goal for this year, but doing my best and hoping once I get settled that I can rejoin you all again and top books. I really, really miss it. So looking forward to catching up in the future

Nothing like a small gift

And when it felt like my world was crashing down, it made me realize that I'm just such a small part of something so huge. And it brought me peace. It brought me so much comfort knowing that what I was going through at that point was although valid would get better. It was just a moment and moments pass. But it truly taught me to appreciate the beauty of the world
