pulling out images
from the haven where we stayed last summer,
in the middle of Tuscan countryside.




can you hear the peace?


all images shot at 
La Lodola in Asciano.

"Daydreaming is its own reward."
~ Marty Rubin

i, too, join in the throngs
who praise the New Year 
for offering a blank page.
a whole lot of goodness to hold onto,
some trivia to let go,
tweaks to be made.

my magic word for 2019 is F O C U S
again & again,
i seem to have fallen in the trap
of my personal creative time
slipping away. 
 this year i will be guarding it,
marking the alotted times in my diary in ink

my 2019 list:

* fine art photography

(i already made an effort to, yes, *focus* on this
with a dedicated new instagram account November Atelier
~  find me there if you fancy.
it's my quieter place.  )

* shift focus back to blog

* website up & running

* Paris

* the perfect white shirt

* uninterrupted, scheduled time for personal creativity 

* no work stuff in the evenings & weekends

* more reading & writing, phone down

* presence

i'd love to hear,
do you have a magic word for the coming year?
any plans, adjustments, wishes?

i am so thankful for all the kindness & encouragement
over here in the past year.
wishing you a creative New Year,
rich in meaningfulness.

the main festivities are wrapped,
those slow, in-between days arrived.

in-between goes for this post, too
– more moods & music,
less words.
they simmer beneath the surface,
ready to take form 
for the new year about to unveil itself.
i want to hear the silence
& take heed. 

(the ethereal compositions of Ola Gjeilo,
a new discovery for me this winter,
is like filling the ears with music 
that is like the most beautiful silence
– stirring, a call to pause, 
allow the soul to soar.)

Wishing you a special Christmas time
& a New Year filled with whatever it is you're hoping for,
and more...
Thank you for the love over here,
and I'm sorry things have been a bit quiet recently.
That will soon change
I feel it in my bones :)

I feel thankful to my core
for the gift that is photography.
for time & a quiet house
at the beginning of the week
to breathe, dig inside
& imagine.
on this particularly dim & grey November day,
I fancied gathering my hem 
by the faint window light
& reimagine summer.
