Opening - a short film

A few days ago, my little family pressed pause and went south in search for some quietness, sun, sea and (especially for me), space to breathe and restore myself.
I had a loose intention of video recording a few moments of our days despite having no experience or knowledge, and I've played a bit with movie making upon returning home. 

Click below if you would like to see my first attempt on film, and of course, I would appreciate any advice you have for me!


A little photo-journal |MAY|

A few details from my May:

  • blooms and naked trees (noting and acknowledging the difference)
  • wearing personal notes
  • looking up and soaking the hues
  • looking inside into the shadows
  • looking outside of my window
  • being looked after
  • deep, deep work
  • simple and delicate chamomile (I may be obsessing with moody flower photos...)
  • night watch


Space oddity

Sometimes I mention that I am quite a melancholic person. The full story would include a bit sad, with a penchant for acceptance of life as it is, mostly contemplative, and above all, an embracer of all the feelings, including sadness, despair, discomfort.

To feel it all, to feel alive.


PS: Edited, because I've learned that not everything needs to be written and because I want to say it in different words. 


Me, elsewhere |April|

It's not that I don't want to write in this space - more than ever I'm feeling the need of an active usage of this blog/a blog- as it is the lack of organisation in order to make it happen. It will happen, soon. In the meanwhile, I don't want to leave April out from my monthly journal, so here is a short record of the playfulness I have been spreading elsewhere.

Spring placed itself definitely, time is spent outside as much as possible, our house keeps feeling bigger and bigger and our garden smaller and smaller. April brought serious adjustments, both physical and mental. Though I consider myself to be up for changes overall, I can´t help to notice how much time I need to adjust to any change these days. JP doesn't stop growing (how does he dare?) and I can do nothing but sit and watch him. Nor I would like to do anything to stop him, but still... it all feels too fast...



Seven years ago, this handsome dog decided he was a part of our family. He joined in our walks at first, then,  he stood by our house day and night and took it on himself to be a keeper of our home and of our family, including our cats, standing firm until we realised that he was already ours, that he was meant to be ours, even though we were not looking for another dog.
And for the past seven years, he has earned his cognomen "the kind giant" every day without exception.
So today, as his big heart stopped,  mine shrunk considerably.
