" no faith in fate "

---

you get what you get, and no take-backsies. revel in your choices, and perhaps too the way in which you lean towards or shrink away from those situations, people, and objects you come across.

almost nothing is fate, and almost nothing is luck. but mostly everything is the way it happens because it's the way it happens. it's not glorified, but it's pure and honest. there is beauty in that simplicity.

painfully lovely melancholy in the most minimalist moments. this is the distillation of the eternal experience, and we are all within it, around it, and creators of it.

tonight's homework:

make a slight inspection of your more complex patterns, and seek to streamline the more cross-wired ones.

" heart cibo matto "

---

how amazing are cibo matto's miho hatori & yuka c. honda?! the absolute best!

calm and collected, they have fun in the face of all other pop star whiner attention whoring simple beat mediocre label-PR push BS drivel. fun!

beautiful beats, skilled musicians, singers, and all around performers. they really embody for me a crew that can flex and wane, bloom, flourish, duck down, take a decade-point-five to regroup, and still retain all of the flush and fervor that made you fall in love in the first place.

if you get the opportunity, peep their back catalog, solo work, and their supremely confident & gorgeously produced newest release. you'll feel so much better for it.

  one year ago , i  began this blog  as a way to provide myself with a space to slow down from the at-the-time frenetic immediacy of my digital work. 
 i began to consider my basics again, as well as pare down on the gadgetry of a certain modern version of machinery that did the thinking for you. 
 choosing the polaroid land camera has allowed me to incorporate what beautiful confusion comes with letting go of all the precision, and leaves that sense of wonderment and magic intact. 
 the process of learning this camera is still a surprise. where it has strengths and weaknesses. where those subtle shifts in use or repair influence the outcomes. still fun and evolves each day. it’s like a portable therapeutic instrument which flexes and is patient. 
 i’ve brought this camera (along with a few others) with me at least every day since purchasing it, and have not stopped shooting. i hope to continue its use through all the films i find which are compatible, and then after the entire stock of the universe is disappeared, i’ll probably turn it into a lamp or planter, so that another great beauty may grow from its skeleton. 
 many thanks to all followers and supporters. it has been and continues to be a great pleasure.
