I’d love to say these are “just because” roses, but they’re not. They are because I completely lost my cool the other day for reasons that seemed immensely important to me and there’s apology tucked in these stems. But that’s beside the point.

I found this feather at the top floor of a parking garage where there’s literally no birds. The chances of this feather falling and landing right on my path in front of my car are very slim.
