hello I am happy
Using old photos 19-year old me took because I can, and because I’m not at home, and because this will still always be our field. :)
Happy birthday, lovely!!
It’s May 23 today, which means that I took these photos exactly three years ago.
And they’ve been those kind of memories I keep coming back to ever since.
Write even more.
Write even more than that.
Write when you don’t want to.
Write when you do.
Write when you have something to say.
Write when you don’t.
Write every day.

teaming up with Simon a little over two months ago was a good idea
What I would really like to do is wander about the streets searching for pretty places like cafés or restaurants or libraries. And we’d have a coffee or tee and talk and laugh and hold hands and sometimes sit in silence and read, or maybe we would just make me do nothing for once.
And sometimes we’d walk in and turn around on the spot because it wouldn’t be the right place. And sometimes we’d go in anyway.
And sometimes, we’d find the perfect place to be.

sometimes I really like an instagram photo and then it takes me three weeks to actually sit down and overwork it
“Ich glaube, es gibt kaum jemand auf flickr, der es so versteht Ehrlichkeit und das Leben an sich einzufangen. Und nicht nur in Bildern sondern auch in Worten. Du fängst das Leben ein, und das ist wunderbar.”
“Stop comparing where you’re at with where everyone else is. It doesn’t move you farther ahead, improve your situation, or help you find peace. It just feeds your shame, fuels your feelings of inadequacy, and ultimately, it keeps you stuck. The reality is that there is no one correct path in life. Everyone has their own unique journey. A path that’s right for someone else won’t necessarily be a path that’s right for you. And that’s okay. Your journey isn’t right or wrong, or good or bad. It’s just different. Your life isn’t meant to look like anyone else’s because you aren’t like anyone else. You’re a person all your own with a unique set of goals, obstacles, dreams, and needs. So stop comparing, and start living. You may not have ended up where you intended to go. But trust, for once, that you have ended up where you needed to be. Trust that you are in the right place at the right time. Trust that your life is enough. Trust that you are enough.”

a city that isn’t mine
memories that are yours
my appreciation left behind
with those who I need to find
for when they were there
I was alive
