Sometimes since I've been in the garden I've looked up through the trees at the sky and I have had a strange feeling of being happy as if something was pushing and drawing in my chest and making me breathe fast. Magic is always pushing and drawing and making things out of nothing. Everything is made out of magic, leaves and trees, flowers and birds, badgers and foxes and squirrels and people. So it must be all around us. In this garden - in all the places. ~ Frances Hodgson Burnett, The Secret Garden 🌿✨ I’m already missing the green 😭
One of the reasons that I’ve been so little on Instagram recently is that I’ve been working on my Master’s thesis which, ironically, is about Instagram. But it’s done now, I finally submitted it this week! Feels good and weird at the same time.
The other reasons for my lessened presence here? Well, it just simply seems that Insta isn’t among my top priorities anymore. I’ve lost a lot of followers in the past 10 months or so. I hope you guys - the ones that are left - don’t mind me posting less often than I used to! I’m still here, just not as much as before. 🙂
I think our grown children forget that mothers are always keeping an eye out for them, that they know every inch of each of their child’s face, and within the close vigilance is with the intention of love. They forget that a mother’s love also means no matter how much they have grown up, their mother deeply understands them.
Ce regard qui erre, qui cherche la lumière et qui soudainement s’arrête sur mon visage et me fixe. Tu observes mes lèvres qui bougent pour te dire des mots doux avec une voix beaucoup trop aiguë, mais que tu aimes pourtant. Puis, ton regard me quitte et retourne errer dans ce monde encore flou et serein qui est le tien.
The winter light is coming and it's intense, perfect for capturing those quirky shadows all over the house.
Quick shoutout to the amazing @photoartbyjessica, this was edited using JM Authentic 10 (one click) 😍 I'll post a before and after in my stories.
