Perhaps they make me think of the hanging gardens of Babylon, or Victorian conservatories. Or maybe it’s just the way they seem to add life to a room. Whatever the reason, hanging plants have always captured my imagination. The jolt of fresh they give to a home is invigorating. Maybe that’s why I can’t get enough of these Japanese hanging plants, Kokedama, I’ve seen popping up on the internet. They even inspired me to write a Japanese style haiku poem(oh dear). Poetry is not my gift, and I had better spend my time, “kokedama-ing” the naked window in my kitchen.

Eager for heaven

They make their home in the sky

And pull up their roots

Caught in a journey

Are they falling or rising

Suspended in air?

Minute most precious

Life is paused for a moment-

The view is lovely

New Things!

Well hello world!
My name is Abigail,
And this is my first blog post.
I’ll tell you more about myself
In the days to come.
I’ll share my loves, likes, dreams, thoughts
And I hope you’ll be nice
It takes courage to do something new
To send your thoughts and dreams,
Out into the world.
So here’s to new and exciting things!

“We keep moving forward, opening new doors, and doing new things, because we’re curious and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.”
-Walt Disney
