A Flowery Butterfly Nation Day

du ska inte tro det blir sommar,
ifall inte nån sätter fart
på sommarn och gör lite somrigt,
då kommer blommorna snart.

-Ida's Sommarvisa by Astrid Lindgren

I need to rush forward the weather here in London so that we get a summer finally. Kick it up.

Feel tiny bit empty of inspirations mainly because of the weather (i think). I need to be filled. And only god knows with what. 

This quote of the love Anais Nin comes to mind:

"You must not fear, hold back, count or be a miser with your thoughts and feelings. It is also true that creation comes from an overflow, so you have to learn to intake, to imbibe, to nourish yourself and not be afraid of fullness. The fullness is like a tidal wave which then carries you, sweeps you into experience and into writing. Permit yourself to flow and overflow, allow for the rise in temperature, all the expansions and intensifications. Something is always born of excess: great art was born of great terrors, great loneliness, great inhibitions, instabilities, and it always balances them. If it seems to you that I move in a world of certitudes, you, par contre, must benefit from the great privilege of youth, which is that you move in a world of mysteries. But both must be ruled by faith."
Maybe I am escaping a little too much or maybe it's all just here but so overwhelmingly so that I am blocked? 
overflow, temper, waves, loneliness, inhibitions &  instabilities bring it ON.

EXCESS NOW please.
