I love Ivy on walls. Often times I get up close, real close to witness its curves, and its delicate existence. Despite the rain, I find this time of year to be quite charming in its quiet reveal of naked beauty and awakening of nature. -tM

This is incredibly powerful. Wait until the last few seconds. I believe her to be the shark whisperer -tM.
Blurring the lines between life and art, part sculptural installation and part public furniture piece designed by Ju Lee Architects makes hanging out in this park in Seoul Korea all the more inviting. Roots that gently rise and fall create different heights for people to lean on, sit, or lie down.
Taking inspiration from nature and encouraging our connection to it in my opinion, is always a good thing. -tM

A quiet power,
It cannot be still.
Its singular wave
moves our infinite existence. -tM
There is something to be said about embracing, or at the very least accepting every season for what it is. Finding beauty in those moments, after a storm, during a heat wave, in the middle of a downpour, or on a windy day reminds one to take pause. Look around, grab your lovers hand and take it slow. Because taking it slow, is sexy. -tM

When the two meet at unexpected moments, vows of friendship and beauty are renewed. -tM
Sometimes this is how I feel. Knowing when to let go is important, even if you are left there standing alone. -tM
Gohar Dashti series “Home” is a compilation of photographs spotlighting the abandoned homes in her country of Iran. It’s a solemn view of post-war spaces. It is also a homage to the power of nature and the earths capacity to renew and bring life to where life has been deserted. -tM

The August skies are so soft and demure in contemplation. So different from the sunsets of July; wild in passion and colour, igniting fires within all of us. -tM
"Garden's are our best defence against the hostile world."
There is so much that get's absorbed by nature, so much that we let go of while in her presence. We come out cleaner, more peaceful, more human. -tM
You never cease to amaze me.
You are incredibly beautiful even in your anger. You are patient and tolerant in ways that we need to be.
You exist simply, beautifully.
You know when to let go and when to unleash your hurt. It is out of desire and purpose that you create.
You hold the basis to our cognitive, spiritual, and aesthetic satisfaction.
I will always feel like a child in your presence. -tM
When nature and architecture exist in perfect harmony, it allows for a spacial transformation of an organic kind.
They don't ever have to marry, however architecture has to allow nature the space to flourish, as it must not overwhelm it nor possess it. Good architecture should let nature in. -tM
To paraphrase Pablo Neruda, the blossoms of a lemon tree always carry an aroma of exasperated love after giving birth to a lemon.
I love the freshness that lives in lemons. There lightness of colour and shape is echoed in the clarity of there flavour. Its secret symmetry can be discovered through its fragrance, discerned in part by savouring its balance of acid. It harbours within the most potent and concentrated liqueur nature has to offer in a fruit.
When engaging with a lemon, you captivate all 5 of your senses. -tM
