How was your Valentine’s day? I wasn’t on my best shape (after a dentist visit) and couldn’t enjoy our date as much as it deserved, but alas, can’t we pretend that any other day is Valentine’s day and repeat it? I think I can start planning a new date, what do you think? Today we have a few pictures back from the beginning of February when we celebrated for the first time the Setsubun Japanese tradition (read more here and here) eating an ehomaki, and visited a photography exhibition by Sebastiao Salgado.
All pictures in this post are from our phones, I’ve lately read a short article that mentioned that statistics say that we check our phones between 50 and 100 times a day. It seems crazy right? And still I’m sure you even can picture in your head now that person that checks it like 1 million times breaking all records and leaving you with that “hey-I’m-here” feeling. I’ve always had a hate-hate relationship with mobile phones that has been converted into a love-hate one, I really love to be able to check our blog and add ideas on our drafts when I feel inspired and of course check Instagram or read blog posts on the go, but I always bring with me a book to leave the phone on a side, it’s like a rebellious part in me which doesn’t want to succumb to its enchantment.
I think what most interested me about the article is the fact that it mentioned that we have the best ideas and our creativity is tops when we are bored, and precisely being concentrated in that whatsapp conversation or reading something in any social network doesn’t allow us to be “bored”. I don’t know about you, but it rings true to me, I put together in my head all the visual/reading inspiration during a shower (typical!), or better, when I’m on the subway looking away with that blank stare as I was visiting another planet. In fact I wish to be on that other planet as many times as possible, one where people are mostly “bored” ;) Would you like to join me?
Thanks for following along in a post that could also be called “on blabbing”, hope you liked the pictures even though my head and conversation was today somewhere else!
Let’s talk about your phone routine! Do you check your phone often? What is the app that you are checking most? Mine would be VSCO cam and Instagram.
