The morning brought such happiness to me it pushed tears into my eyes.
For a month and a half, practically the whole summer, I've been locked in a void. You could call it apathy, but to me it meant more like death of the old spirit, and in the process also the death of my inspiration. More than anything it was a time of deep personal growth. Walking through days in a gray mist has felt much like a wasteland of depression, but not precisely. It was more of a period of cold silence and growth, focusing sometimes even selfishly on my inside and letting the dark and unnecessary burdens shed like snakeskin.
In the morning I could feel the inspiration flowing again, and I've rarely felt that grateful. So that's why I'm so happy now! It's hard to photograph such a feeling, so I'll just add a list here of little slightly vain and visual things I enjoy at the precise moment:
I started missing my bangs since they've been absent for months now.
Cutting them again always feels like meeting an old friend.
30's half moon manicure with a sharpened edge and a matte finish has stuck to my nails for weeks.
I gave our orchids some coffee and they started to bloom like crazy!
I wish I could say the same thing about our poor herbs.
In the game of thrones, you win or you die.
It was worth all the wait to get the free hours to spend with these brilliant books!
I devoured the first part quickly and now the Clash of Kings is waning towards its end.
Bravo, Mr.Martin, bravo.
I've worn a lot of strappy shoes lately, so this trio is a current favourite.
All are second hand, from flea markets and eBay. I found the used Jeffrey Campbell's Clinic shoes when there was still snow on the ground. I was aching to use them, but I had to get them repaired first because both of the platforms ripped off when I took them for the first walk. :-D Just my luck, but now they're good to go!
“Sometimes you wake up. Sometimes the fall kills you. And sometimes, when you fall, you fly.”
Last but never the least, comics.
I've always been certain that comics can teach you some profound lessons of life.
This particular scene is in my all-time top list and I wanted to share it with you.
And this reminds me that I've got a two-person comic club meeting with my friend,
so I have to run now! I wish you all a wonderful Saturday evening. ♥
