Nadya of Blue Locket!

Part two of my blog swap with Nadya of Blue Locket! Nadya is a writer, art consultant, and mama of two. She has flawless taste and beautiful, thoughtful writing. As a treat for y’all, she is gracing our Monday with a beautiful Fall post! Enjoy!


Jessica’s gorgeous blog has inspired me to look around, take in my surroundings, and find what’s beautiful. So today’s post is brought to you by the color sage. It’s not necessarily a typical fall color (like burgundy, which seems to be everywhere these days). It’s the color of the leaves in my backyard in the late-afternoon sunlight. It looks great next to navy and gray. And sage green works on the walls, on the table, even on your fingernails:

Jessica Clare

Preschool teacher, writer, trouble maker.

LIVES: Seattle. By way of Santa Fe, San Francisco, and NYC.
DAYDREAMS:Strong coffee. Gourmet magazine. Stinky cheese. Date night with new strappy heels. Green chile. Going back to India. Unabashed displays of love. Vegetable gardens. Clean sheets. Unruly stacks of books. Breaking Bad marathons. Writing like Joan Didion ,Gabriel Garcia Marquez, and Joseph Stroud. Cookbooks. French 75s. Sequins with jeans. Leaving love notes.
BELIEVES: “A human being is part of the whole, called by us ‘Universe,’ a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest – a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole nature in its beauty. Nobody is able to achieve this completely, but the striving for such achievement is in itself a part of the liberation, and a foundation for inner security.” Albert Einstein “The important thing is not to think much but to love much and so do that which best stirs you to love.” St. Teresa of Avila “People say that what we’re all seeking is a meaning for life. I don’t think that’s what we’re really seeking. I think that what we’re seeking is an experience of being alive, so that our life experiences on the purely physical plane will have resonances without own innermost being and reality, so that we actually feel the rapture of being alive.” Joseph Campbell
