As some of you know, Ive become a little concerned of late with what I consume. The other day, though, I realized perhaps its just as important to think about what I expel. Hence these pictures of houseplants. The quality of air in this city is, how shall I put this, diminished. Luckily in an effort to beautify our personal environment, my fantastic wife acquired a number of natures most elegant air purifiers.
Still, you cant really complain about air quality once you realize youve been fuming up the place with your own exhaust. Which is one of the reasons why I recently decided to ditch my personal FaceBook page. When I started this blog I wanted to produce and share thoughts on the internet that were more than simple reactions to the clutter and chaos of this world. However, I havent held myself to the same standard on my personal FB page. I realized Im not good at FB. It distracts me from things, important things, like my family, and my own presence in the time and space which I inhabit. It distracts me from doing photography, writing and learning more about worthwhile things. Instead of producing things I can take some pleasure and pride in, I find myself trying to be clever all the time. Which is kind of idiotic.
As most of you know the political situation here falls somewhere on the scale between dismal and catastrophic. It sucks. It sucks the air right out of my lungs. I dont want to talk about it anymore. Its not that I dont care about the country I inhabit. Its not that I dont care about the people. Its that right now it seems like theres nothing to do except shout. And that seems predictable. It also poisons the air which is already thick with more CO2 than it needs. It also draws the attention of bullies who can out-shout me and or do worse.

So today, I thought Id try to convey some fresh air from my home to yours. Lets contemplate the beauty of houseplants. Lets take a deep breath, and make room for something that can absorb our exhaust. Just breathe, baby. Just breathe.
