i woke up with a headache.
outside there was a steady, grey drizzle.
you'd think that would make a girl want to bury her head under the covers.
and it did.
but the animals were depending on me.
so i went outside.
and tho' it was raining, the air was FULL of birdsong.
and it was quite warm. and still.
the chickens clucked a greeting and got busy pecking around for tasty morsels.
the bunnies stood on their little back legs to say hello.
the horses nickered good morning.
and my headache began to fade.
and i knew it would be a good day after all.

if you read nothing else today, read this. lidewij edelkoort is more than just a trend forecaster, she's one smart, thoughtful woman. take what she says about politics today:
The word "intellectual" was coined in a time of great political distress. Does fashion have a political role? And in which way?
while i'm not certain i find comfort in that statement (look what regionalism did in the balkans), it is definitely food for thought.

happy weekend, one and all.
