Things keep being added to the to-do list; until, for some of the things, they’re too late to do. Good ideas are stacking up and being stored away; we’re thinking about major plans and minor goals – at 3am in the morning, on the drive to work, when we’re out running, or grocery shopping.

We’re thinking about planting vegetables that will survive the winter, about planning trips overseas, about brand management and business plans, about university applications, about moving house, about packing up, about something – anything – new. We’re scrabbling for a path that will free us up a little, searching for the salve that soothes young restlessness.

I know we’re all kinda like this.

But another thing I know, as I reschedule another plan, or put off chasing another idea, that as long as I can cross one thing off the list each day, I’m making progress. Slow progress, no doubt, but inevitable, indelible progress. 


  1. I can agree to that! I make small lists with tiny weekly accomplishments to keep it going - to ensure creativity! But keeping in mind the long term goals and how these little steps take us there :)

  2. this is such a wonderful post. Yes, i understand, i do these things, too. Cheers to the wildness of now, the fleeting moments of youth, the desire to grasp what we have before it suddenly fades away. <3

  3. Your photos are soo beautiful! What font is that?

  4. Indelible progress.... I love that. I, too, am slow to cross things off my to-do list, but I love the idea of accepting and honoring that speed despite what others may think. Thank you.
