Monthly Musings- June

Monthly Musings- June

Art

Scottie Cameron is an LA-based artist who constantly nudges the lines of minimalism and maximalism, taking inspiration from each frame of thinking to evoke a sense of uncertainty. Not a single one of his pieces is alike and each one forces the eye to peer more deeply inward to see the curvature of a pipe, the placement of a hand, or the underlying texture beneath a shoe. Each item exists in perfect placement and balance with each mobile or immobile part of a given work.

Music

Picture yourself in a bright yellow one-piece swimsuit and a straw hat with a cold cocktail resting beside your towel that is strewn messily beneath a rainbow umbrella. You look to your left and your best friend is cutting up watermelon and to your right, you have a half-eaten baguette and dog-eared romance novel. What kind of music is playing? Click the playlist to listen 🙂

Literature

Confession: I didn’t read anything in the month of June, but this one I plan to start immediately after posting this blog 🙂 Look forward to my review of The Dud Avocado by Elaine Dundy on the next episode of “Monthly Musings” with Lexi Jade!

Video/Film 

 

Hari Nef is one of my most favorite people that walks the face of the Earth. She is #literally the only reason I still have a Twitter account. This video almost completely explains why.

Other

The Messy Heads have started a podcast discussing various topics such as relationships, emotions, etc. The most recent upload was a discussion of what the word “home” means. This is something that has created somewhat of a film that I think lays softly over the years immediately following one's teens-the idea of leaving home, only to constantly attempt to rebuild that same idea time and time again.

Self-care

Taking walks is something I did a lot before I started college, but now I feel like a can barely find 15 minutes to take a stroll down the block. This month I am setting aside time to walk at least three times a week. Nothing too strenuous and nothing that feels too forced, only a soft stroll to give my mind a break and let my body take over for a bit.

..maybe next month I’ll start running 🙂
