because i am getting to know her





there is a change in me, subtly these last few month a layer has fallen revealing another version of me. Lately i have realized that i am quieter, the quieter that feels at peace, I look at things differently, what i need and what i want. i am starting to see a whole picture, a map and where i stand on it. My cravings have changed, although i appreciate beautiful things i want less and less of them. What i do need, and what i want is experiences. the craving for foreign land, languages and culture i can no longer ignore. I am leaving the house that for a short while i called a home, for a new one -it's bones saturated in history but with promises to put into practice the lessons i have learned, new ideas and with the eagerness to learn more about who i am.

In this new place I will consciously make an effort to live in the moment
while making sure i do the best to protect it for those who will live in the future.
I am me like wool is wool,i know this now.

it is such an important moment in your life and when that happens is so good to be aware of that, because somethings things happen and we only discover after, that, we were changing and didn't get it.
Beautiful words.

First that blouse is gorgeous. Since my brother passed away I don't, can't look at life the same way. I live frugaly, keeping things that "mean" something and I think about all the things he had left to do and I do them, or at least I try. Your generosity in opening up is very appreciated
