"I must be a mermaid. I have no fear of depths and a great fear of shallow living."
Anaïs Nin

@meimulai Thank you so much for my mermaid necklace! I’m absolutely in LOVE with my new little treasure that you made! XO😘

please don’t paint me flawless
I am not a portrait
I am a graffiti mural
tagged on the side of an abandoned freight train
dazzling but unexpected
found in a place
most people never think to look
either you will search and marvel
at your discovery
pass by me without notice
continuing to believe that art
can only be found in museums
or places
or people
that are guarded
and immaculate.

Graffiti (and other hidden gems)

We do not grow absolutely, chronologically. We grow sometimes in one dimension, and not in another; unevenly. We grow partially. We are relative. We are mature in one realm, childish in another. The past, present, and future mingle and pull us backward, forward, or fix us in the present. We are made up of layers, cells, constellations.

Cât de minunat este să-l poţi admira pe cel pe care-l iubeşti! În plină lumină a zilei, cu totală luciditate. Aşa cum priveşti soarele. Aşa că voi veni să te văd dimineaţa şi din felul în care te voi privi vei şti că te iubesc, că sunt tulburată de vocea ta, de ochii tăi, de zâmbetul tău strălucitor şi de sunetul paşilor tăi. Te voi vedea şi sunt fericită, înspăimântător de fericită, pentru că sunt aproape de tine.

Our life is composed greatly from dreams, from the unconscious, and they must be brought into connection with action. They must be woven together.

Super stoked fairy this morning 》》 Travelling to Reading to work with creative Mr. Dekker.. baggged another job whilst riding the train too! ‘Life is a process of becoming, a
combination of states we have to go
through. Where people fail is that
they wish to elect a state and remain
in it. This is a kind of death.
