paige works in one of our nyc stores and sent along this lovely post about a weekend getaway to martha’s vineyard :)
I’m always dreaming of another land where my fairytale thoughts can come to life… and then I found myself in solitude on Martha’s Vineyard.
The beauty surrounding me in those four days was all the company that I needed. I’ve never traveled alone, and it was an incredible experience. I bunked in a hostel and took full advantage of the MV bus system, visiting every town, seeing everything the land had to offer. My days & nights spent adventuring through fields, trees and ocean. I walked through the State Forest in the rain, singing along to my own melodies, knowing in my heart that this trip signified so much growth for me. Knowing that I had taken myself to a place of isolation (no internet, no phone), knowing I had found that creative spark within myself; the spark that daily life sometimes burns out.
I documented my journey through a series of grainy film photos, a million scribbled words all over my notebook pages, dried flowers that looked up at me kindly before being picked; poignant songs that inspired, moved and compelled me to no end, and I even found ten beautiful seashells. It was wonderful.
Here is the playlist to accompany my journey:
beautiful…thanks so much for sharing, paige :)
