How do I stop treating my grief like a stranger?
Use it to autumn-ify your whole face.
To keep track of the cozier days ahead.
Scenes from an imagined movie about real heartbreak.
Look no further than these photos.
From the pages of a seasonal sketchbook.
It only feels like it’s forever.
Shaking off our autumnal ennui.
High hopes and racing hearts.
Pull on a woolly sweater and let’s do this.
May’s theme is HOMESTRETCH.
