A Tire Swing Story is a bite-sized "imagining" inspired by an object I discover while wandering. It could be a curbside trash gem or a message sprayed on a wall. A lost mitten, or an antique store find. Anything goes. I photograph the object and post them together, the story and its inspiration. There will be a new story every Monday and Wednesday. On Fridays, I'll discuss writing, life, love, and coffee. (In no particular order and maybe all at once.)

Casual Fridays: Human Soup

Hi guys. It's Britt. A few weeks ago, I posted about how sometimes I pick people's flowers. I said that I did it because it reminded me of stealing lilacs as a kid and bringing them home to Mom. The other day I was out walking, and I came across this sign in front of somebody's house: 


This sign reminded me that although we often think our lives are separate, we're all in this human soup together. And what we do affects others.

Guess who's not stealing flowers anymore? And I can't wait till I walk by this spot and actually see the garden in bloom.

Many of you might be familiar with this, but I wanted to share a video that I've always loved. It's totally cheesy, but it always reminds me about the importance of human connection. (Seriously, click the link. It's worth it!)

Bridge the gap this weekend, story makers. See you back here on Monday. 
xo Britt
