it was way too humid to be outside yesterday but we definitely went outside anyway and found this actual magic fairy forest🌿 Beautiful day of bikin + hikin + canoeing down the St. Croix, thanks for adventuring with me @hellocatierae 🙌🏼
my mind is a treasure room some days glitter and glisten and gleam like jewels in my memory some are turquoise and some are emerald and some are gold and I'll keep collecting more as many as I can carry
And do you ever dream of oxygen? Of breathing in every place but where you are now? Of ocean air blowing down your trachea, clogging up your bronchioles with salt crystals? Of taking great gulps of sultry jungle air, swollen with liquid, dripping with papaya juices and warm coconut milk? Of the frantic, euphoric swallows you might take of Himalayan summit air, thin and papery and savagely cold, slicing like a razor blade down your throat? Of choking down the nauseating flavors of metropolis air, ripe with sweat and taxi fumes and fresh baked bread and molding nectarines and Jacaranda blossoms all mixing together into something new? And if you could save little chunks of it in your pockets or hold it all somehow down in the deepest corners of your lungs you would.
Behind the scenes: Me contemplating the worst decision I have ever made in nature and whether I will have to be airlifted off of this actual 3 inch wide ledge while @angelafriesen_ and a delightful family of Korean tourists points and laughs at me in their go-pro movie. Don't know how I survived this...
This place was more beautiful than I ever could have imagined and I've definitely never felt more like a pirate hunting for treasure in my life as I did paddling into all the island crevices and floating through tunnels and passageways between caves in my little kayak ✨💎💫
I'd build an opera house for you in the deepest jungle 🎶✨💕 • • Happy birthday to my sweet angel boy and I promise you 23 will be filled with so much love and adventure that you won't even be able to handle it😇
