magic unfolding poetry christmas new years words

scrolling Instagram  these days has turned into a far more meaningful endeavor. As we aim our course for 2020, we find ourselves unfollowing many of the “influencers” that once inspired us on some level and finding more and more accounts that provoke thought and inspiration on a whole other level.
