let's be wildflowers,
let our souls be scattered by the wind.
let us grow, wild and free,
tall and brave,
in the places where our longings
let us grow between the cracks
and we will make everything beautiful.
- poem by Gaby Comprés
I adore this picture ✨ I’ve been passing the last few days drawing Swiss mountains and listening to ‘calm vibes’ playlists on Spotify ✨🌿 there’s quite a lot going on just now and my job officially starts in less than 5 weeks after nearly 4 months of time off and I don’t feel remotely ready, but c’est la vie! 🐳✨
I was working today and when I stopped to take a break, I sat back and for just a moment thought: this summer is so different from last summer. So much has changed in just one year. I am in a much better and happier place; I just can’t believe what a difference a year makes. It was *so* hard to see what would result from what seemed like rock bottom, emptiness, dark times and rough roads that seemed to go on with no end in sight. There were certainly times where I wanted to give up, and I’m not proud of it. But I am so glad that I had even the slightest piece of something in my soul to force myself to hold on. There were and are so many blessings that have come along since then. Those silent struggles were meant for something... I don’t know if it was God’s timing to place this on my heart or if I am just having random rambling thoughts, but there it is. This is me being honest, open, and vulnerable. Because I feel someone else out there is having their own silent struggle, too, and it’s okay. #sorry#thisshouldhavebeeninmyblog
The banks of the Tagus, my private inner sea and ongoing subject of mine for a long time. It’s a region I enjoy a lot to photograph, one that someday I might put into a proper project, and the reason why I like it is because its many contrasts in a small area: nature vs city, rural vs urban. And a river that slowly flows in the middle.
