As weak as it is compared to the other forces on the spectrum used by physicists and astronomers, gravity has bound us all, and no matter where we go or how we hurry and sweat to accomplish, we all in the end return to the Earth. If this is not us, then why do we store here these pieces of Earth, ash returned to ash and dust to dust? If we are something more than this, why do we insist on this warehousing of husks? Our memories are short; her view is long, and inscribe what we will on what we have to hand, what she gives to us will all return to her to be held in her bosom.
🌈 Filed under things we love. Philadelphia’s rainbow connection encourages residents to display rainbows for children to find on their [socially distanced] walks. The rainbows are mapped via a crowdsourced google map, helping to direct parents to find each rainbow in their neighborhood. .
This is the entrance to The Athenaeum of Philadelphia - an independent membership library and museum with beautiful reading rooms. With 24 ft ceilings. Yes. Amazing. I posted the interior last year, but thought you’d appreciate seeing them together. The building is a National Historic Landmark and one of the first Philadelphia buildings built of brownstone. It faces Washington Square and is one of the 16 surviving member supported libraries (like the Providence Athenaeum that I’ve posted before), from the time when free public libraries didn’t exist.
Unfortunately, it’s closed now, like so many things, but when things are operating normally again you can tour the building. There are only a few member-only rooms.
And this concludes my Instagram homeschool for the day. Peace out quarantine peeps. #theprettycities #worldinbloom #phillylove
This home and property is unique and appealing as it offers two lots. This home has the most amazing yard and outdoor space as a result. Truly, it is an urban oasis which is impossible to find in this part of the city. The yard and home are clearly maintained very well. The interior is a bit cluttered for my taste, but I see past this to the beautiful original floors, front door and a home ready for lucky new owners to make it their own. Who couldn’t use more outdoor space at this time!? Located in Port Richmond on the edge of Olde Richmond, just outside of Fishtown, this home is a great value at only 425k (and we can negotiate that). Let’s land you this home and you can pop outside for @littlesusies pies any morning you wish!
Sending you all peace and love ❤❤What's something peaceful you plan to do today?

These configurations formed into our forms are made of the stuff of the Earth itself, and while it will act as our provisioner and give us what we need to code and cobble together and somehow set alight the recognizable shapes that we are, it has not yet allowed a one of us to escape. The Earth will let us walk around a bit, laugh and eat and marry and fight and sing and lie and dig in the ground and fly in the sky, but we’re none of us leaving.

One day we’ll tell our grandkids all about the time that a man with a mullet and an obsession with tigers was the most popular person on the internet. We’ll share how everyone became a bread baker and doing push-ups was cool. We’ll tell them about the lines at the grocery store and they’ll say, “But why toilet paper?” and we’ll shrug because we’re still not sure. We’ll give them lectures on never taking things for granted: gathering with friends and family, picnics in the park, and eating at their favorite restaurants. They will roll their eyes, and we’ll tell them to stop touching their face. I bought the fancy coffee, and I savored my walk home from the grocery store, and I picked out some new candles. What are you guys doing to brighten your day a little? 💓
I’m Nohra, the face behind Camino Kombucha. I’m its owner, brewer, salesperson, account manager - you name it. Camino celebrates the DIY spirit of people coming together over food and drink, and you should know that it’s pretty much all DIY behind the scenes, too!
I founded Camino in May 2018, and since then, it’s been a lot of hard work. The startup all happened while I was still studying engineering at Drexel. But when I see someone’s face light up after trying their first Camino - especially when they made it clear beforehand that they’re not interested in kombucha - it makes it all that work absolutely worth it.
I got into real estate the same way most people get into it - I kind of fell into it and decided to give it my best shot. ✨
While I was a business student at Temple, I got a part-time job at Starbucks (16th and Walnut). This turned into a full-time job and the company ended up paying for my education, and I ended up working the morning shift and making coffee for everyone who was heading to work in the morning. Meeting all of these professionals on their way to work ended up being the best education. I would ask everyone how they were doing, and some would respond with an eye roll and say “Is it Friday yet?” and other’s would respond enthusiastically and tell me about their day. I wanted to be in the second camp. 🙋🏻♀️
As I finished my first internship, I knew I didn’t want a career that had me looking forward to Friday - I wanted something I loved. After getting to know my customers more, I learned that a few were real estate agents working from the Keller Williams office across the street. They were my favorite customers and the ones who always seemed to look forward to Mondays, not Fridays - so I thought I would get my real estate license instead of applying for another internship. 📚 •
I took the real estate class during spring break and took the exam that summer. As I was starting classes my senior year, I was also starting my real estate business. My first year was harder than I ever could have imagined. The second year was harder. But I still knew it was better than being the person on Monday morning saying, “Is it Friday yet?” 🙏
Now, I spend my days in a business I love and my nights and weekends showing homes to people I love working with. It’s the best ever and so worth the struggle at the beginning. ✨
🌬 // I’ve always had a mindset that I want to improve ever year. That every year I want to be stronger/smarter/faster than before. I think I will always strive for this, but often times things happen that set us back and don’t allow us to be perfect.
@mysticmamma said it perfectly that ✨”these setbacks aren’t necessarily bad events but moments that are designed to stop us in our tracks and wake us up.”✨ Sometimes my daily yoga can feel as moments of tuning out rather than tuning in, but If I really listen in, I can notice that my body is constantly giving me clues. Observing where my 🌬breath🌬 is shallow or held can bring such valuable information especially when I’m working through something.
The next time you’re zoning out, bring your awareness to your 🌬breath🌬: sip in an inhale through your nostrils and fill your body with air. HOLD the breath at the top, and then slowly exhale through the mouth, releasing everything. Perhaps using your breath as a tool to help experience all the physical pleasures of being alive.💕
