exactly one year has passed since the 2013 floods here in calgary. it was a bizarre time in the city. i was fortunate and my home was unaffected. the week after was a lot of thumb twiddling, but the city was resilient and bounced back even stronger.
this week has been gloomy and grey. the kind of week where i forego any type of productive early morning routines to sleep until my last alarm goes off and nags me out of bed. i always say though, on days (weeks) like these, coffee tastes so much better, bon iver sounds so much sadder, and hiding out in a yoga studio all day seems like a pretty sweet deal.
also, pink things appear much pinker.
