The Men Of My Life

Today was Father’s Day, and I guess it doesn’t make much sense to post on this occasion, when you don’t have a dad in your life anymore.
But I thought I would write down and share a few words anyway.

Maybe I do believe in fairies after all. Fighting Darkness With Light.

A Heart’s Journey To The One It’s Beating For

My heart is beating so fast,
It feels like it’s gonna break down my ribcage,
Pierce my skin,
And go find peace to the place it’s beating for.

petite liste d’un dimanche de février

petite liste d’un dimanche de février

Waking up later than usual, strolling at the flower market on Columbia Road, letting the scent of a lavender bunch take me back to the south of France, making pancakes, watching a Harry Potter film wrapped in a warm blanket, and taking a purple bath… these are some of the things I like to do on a Sunday. And the list never ends…

to the moon & back.
