Floorboards

The grey light of the morning spills through your window but, with ease, you can turn over and pull the duvet up beneath your chin; it’s a Sunday morning.

Traditionally, a Sunday is a day to relax, reflect and unite; sleep, drink, eat. Keeping with this, it feels apt to reflect on the past week throughout the blogosphere and, generally, the internet.

Below you’ll find some of my favourite posts throughout the WordPress blogging community from the past week, alongside a recap of all of the posts that have been posted on this here blog since Monday.

Snowflakes and people, alike
At night, the sky is a blank canvas made imperfect by the stars; but we find this awe inspiring. Paint is made imperfect by the pigments of other colours, yet it has the power to create works of wonder. Your skin is scattered with freckles; beautiful.

All Black Lives Matter: seeking justice for Sheku Bayoh
Sheku Ahmed Tejan Bayoh, a Sierra Leonean man, died on 3rd May 2015, after being arrested by police in Kirkcaldy, Fife. He had been detained, handcuffed, pepper-sprayed, and put in leg restraints following an alleged altercation with a police officer. It is alleged that Mr Bayoh was wielding a knife, although this has not been proven.

As an avid music listener, my taste varies greatly. Over the past week, these have definitely been my favourite songs:
