Saving the Daylight

Thursday, November 14, 2013

Get the look:
It's official, Daylight Savings is over and I don't get out of work until after the sun has set. I'm still figuring out how to take photos at dusk (and accepting the fact that I look weirdly yellow in all of my pictures), but I do love the city lights in the background. Also, my outfit has a mix of summer and fall elements, which feels fitting for this weird November transition.

Maybe I'm just being sentimental or nostalgic—or whatever you'd like to call it—but this time change really is a turning point for me. Having worked at the same office all summer, I've still been in a weird "summer" mode until now. Since LA doesn't have seasons (it's been 80 degrees all week...), the slight change in light has marked the new season for me. On top of that, I've been feeling much more settled and content with everything lately. It's a bit of a crazy time, but I feel less insane (mental stability—always a good thing) and more appreciative of the place I'm at in my life right now.

Feelings of true contentment and satisfaction are a lot harder to come by than I feel like most people talk about or would like to admit. If I'm going to get all metaphorical, I suppose you could say I'm just taking a moment to save (or savor) this daylight.

And...done :)
