  • Funny thing about windowsills, they're both the same and different everywhere you go.

    I quickly snapped this photo from the top story of a tour bus in Dublin, Ireland.

    Admittedly, I'm surprised the photo came out so well, since my previous stops had been the Guinness Factory followed by the Jameson Distillery. Regardless of my state of mind, however, it remains one of my favorite photos of the trip (and in my collection) to this day.

    It reminds me how beautiful life can be even when your life is in disrepair... How even the simplest things still thrive without tending... How sometimes, rough times produce the best experiences and stories you'll ever tell... And even though we all live differently, sometimes we all take a second to lean out the window, rest our arms on the windowsill, and just be.

    I guess what I'm trying to say is forget worrying so much and embrace what you have. Like many music artists of our time and past have said, these are the best days of our lives - every one of them.
