I'll meet you there.

“You have to make mistakes to find out who you aren’t. You take the action, and the insight follows: You don’t think your way into becoming yourself.”

I exist unconsciously and I’ll die unwillingly. I am the interval between what I am and what I am not, between what I dream and what life has made of me, the abstract, carnal halfway-house between things, like myself, that are nothing…How disquieting it is to feel, how troubling to think, how vain to want.

Self-satisfied smile at Highclere Park.

Yesterday I got to go on a tour of Highclere Castle, the set for Downton Abbey. It was surreal. You weren’t supposed to take photographs inside of the castle, but loads of people surreptitiously ignored that rule (including myself).

My favorite part of the tour was wandering through the gardens. It is unbelievable to think that someone actually lives here. That this wide expanse of earth and field and tree belongs to someone, and is where they were told as a child to go out and play.

I feel so grateful to my AirBnB host for inviting me along. I never even knew that this was a thing you could do. If you’re ever in Wiltshire, and you love DA, I definitely recommend making a trip. The garden tour is only £5, and is well worth the trip.  

This photo does not depict how pleased I was to visit Downtown Abbey today #!!! #whaaaat (at Highclere Castle)
