grateful days: allison rae hipple from the underwing

today i am grateful for...

scene study

1. The sweet smell of Nag Champa burning on muggy nights.

2. The lingering transcendency of Fleet Foxes' music, and the guitar pick I magically received from a very kind man.

3. My hair's innate decision to keep growing and growing.

4. Freshly sharpened pencils, set and ready for the first day of school, just like the little kid I am.

5. Learning how to undress in front of the mirror and knowing there's more to this life than what I cringe at.

thank you ahip for sharing your gratitudes! this list inspired me to start my morning off with "white winter hymnal" and sharpen some pencils to sketch with. i miss the first day of school. i was always so giddy, hugging everyone to pieces and itchin' to see who my new teachers were. and school supplies... i might have to share my favorites very soon. what are y'all's favorite school supplies?

Oh, thank you, Ginny. What a lovely way to start the day. Enjoy sketching sketches and humming hymnals. Peace peace peace. -Ahip

Second back to school post I've read today - making me feel all autumnal. I liked coloured pens best, and always had grand plans for neatly underlining the titles of each subject's work in a different colour...I had usually stopped doing this by the second week back!

Oh definitely notebooks filled with blank paper. What will fill the pages? More importantly, what will fill the edges of the pages? Frustrations, calculations, lists...?

I have to say my favorite school supply is colorful sharpies and crayons.

Hope you had a wonderful day. :)

I, too love back to school! My favorites are
1. Mirado black warrior pre-sharpened pencils
2. graph and handwriting-practice papers
...can't wait to see your list!
