three things to make me happy this grey Monday morn:

the delicious breakfast I had yesterday at 
The Market Coffee House with Paper Rock and Scissors

re birthing of plants that have been in hibernation

and lastly, but most importantly,
new shoes

starting the week with a smile

bordeaux beauty

oh yeah hello life
I'm back
I'm ready
and, I seem to be, a bit more able

what fun HawkandFallow had in Bordeaux!
and who could blame her with this type of beauty surrounding?

the chateau -

the bedrooms

the gardens

the views


the roaring fire in the kitchen

the bike rides

the food 
(yes, I did eat this all by myself,
for lunch.)

the village

un peu de repose

I am a very lucky girl ...

Tomorrow morning I fly to France for a whole long week

and I simply cannot wait

You know when you desperately need to be away from everything?
When you reach your limits and the wound in your heart needs space to heal?

"Music needs the hollowness of the flute,
letters the blankness of the page,
light the void called window,
holiness the absence of self."

see you all in a weeks time
when hopefully the fresh air will have blown away the cobwebs

they're just clothes

ok, so I am a bit hesitant about this post.

I want to pre-empt it all by saying,
this will not become a blog in which I post a picture 
of myself every day.

ok? phew.

brooks shane salzwedel

yet again 'My Black Book' has shared 
a beautiful little secret with us
 in the shape of

His ephemeral landscapes are created using layers 
of graphite, tape and resin

His work is spell bounding.
I want to float in his world please.

they give me the feeling of being lost, but being ok with that
