MAGIC IN THE BLOCK













i put on my dreaming lens
& walked around the block.
 you don't always have to go that far to find some magic.


it could be the way the sun gives the roofs 
an early kiss goodnight,














lurking inside the pages of a book,









engraved in old walls 
that whisper a million stories,









woven in the the frosty fairytale world
of January,










 sometimes it stares you right in the face :) 







“And above all, 
watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you 
because the greatest secrets 
are always hidden in the most unlikely places. 
Those who don't believe in magic will never find it.” 


― Roald Dahl

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 :)
