you're just a sleepy company.


the remote and little known rice terraces of yuanyang county in china’s yunnan province were built by the hani people along the contours of ailao mountain range during the ming dynasty five hundred years ago. the terraces, once planted during the early spring season, are then irrigated with spring water from the forest above, which reflect sunlight to create the images seen here.

i’ve had a really good, tiring day. good things: 1) v. nice dream, 2) mother’s day and i have a v. nice mum, 3) loads and loads of work done, 4) helped out with lots of chores (who knew singing along terribly to stevie wonder makes doing an hour’s worth of washing up tolerable?)

being super productive feels so nice & i need to cut out the being-a-lazy-sack-of-shit part of me for good
