“even weirder, i seem to be doing my fall cocooning early this year. do you cocoon with the changing seasons? i always do, and i am cocooning real hard right now. i always become terribly introspective when the temperatures change. usually i make epically long to-do lists, inhale books and blogs and news articles and fashion magazines, plan projects and try out new ideas, and obsessively edit my pinterest boards with a crazy fervor (hah, anybody else do that?) i feel all sorts of inspired and feel such strong urges to do all these new things, except none of these ideas are any more than half formed yet, so it just feels all jumbled. you too, right? i mean, it can’t be just me. i just want to crawl inside myself and sort things out until i can come out at the end a beautiful butterfly. or maybe i’d settle for an organized butterfly, hah ;).”
