TUSCAN HAVEN













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

And easy Sweeps of Sky –"

A YEAR OF FOCUS

















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.
https://www.instagram.com/novemberatelier/  )

* 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 SILENT IN-BETWEEN

























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.)

MERRY & BRIGHT













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 :)

SUMMER REIMAGINED

















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.
