Sorry, sorry, sorry! I haven’t posted in a week again, I know. But I finished my finals and my third year of university! But even more importantly, my first year as an Arts student. I feel so academically fulfilled. Now that I’m on summer vacation, I need to look for another job. But in the meantime, I will have much more free time, which should mean more consistent blogging (weather permitting).
This midi-skirt was my mom’s. I love the colourful floral print and it just has that country-prairie feel so I thought I’d play off that to create some country class with my ankle-strapped pointy toe sandals. Was so lucky to find that one of my Joe Fresh nail polishes just happened to be the exact same shade of pink!
The world is too much with us; late and soon,
Getting and spending, we lay waste our powers;
Little we see in Nature that is ours;
We have given our hearts away, a sordid boon!
This Sea that bares her bosom to the moon,
The winds that will be howling at all hours,
And are up-gathered now like sleeping flowers,
For this, for everything, we are out of tune;
It moves us not. –Great God! I’d rather be
A Pagan suckled in a creed outworn;
So might I, standing on this pleasant lea,
Have glimpses that would make me less forlorn;
Have sight of Proteus rising from the sea;
Or hear old Triton blow his wreathèd horn.
Though he became quite cynical later in life, I wonder, what would Wordsworth think of our modern world? If he thought that the world was much too with us in the 1800’s, what would he think of us now?
