๐Ÿ’ป I’ve done therapy (the kind where you talk with a psychologist or social worker) several times in my life. It’s a great way to talk things out and get insight when life balls up on you and you’re struggling to see the way through. Carla Akil does a nice job explaining how therapy works.

    I particularly like the photo of the chair. Really like it.

      It’s very interesting, isn’t it. Just something about it is compelling.

    I agree about the chair photograph, I love minimal, simple photography like this.

      I didn’t know how the Film Washi S would respond in blazing direct sunlight but I figured the chair’s shadow and the deck’s slats would be more prominent. Nope, but the glowing chair is interesting in its own right.

        I like that the slats are near invisible, it makes the chair even more prominent.
