Daydreaming & Doodling
I DREAM OF LIVING IN A BIG CITY. I currently live in Nashville, which is quite large by most standards. I love Nashville with my whole heart. It's my home. And while it's currently exactly where I want to be, sometimes I catch myself dreaming of a bigger city. Chicago or New York mainly. I've been in both quite a few times & love them. I have these little ideas of living in a beautiful, brightly lit condo, with a little balcony garden, walking down the block to grab a few things for dinner from the corner market and looking out over the city.
Where most people find nature scenes to be their ideal, with woods or rolling hills, I find the city to be the most beautiful and calming thing ever. I love how buildings stack against each other and make ever-changing beautiful shadows and the sounds of the city oddly soothe me. I love the idea of being able to walk most places and then taking public transportation to those that are just a bit too far.
I love strangers more than anything and the idea of the anonymity that comes with being surrounded by millions (literally) is thrilling to me.
I know, I'm probably an alien & no one seems to love a city like I do. But what about you, my darlings? What are you dreaming of lately? xo
