• Beneath a white Blanket •
As parts of the country are sleeping under snow today I’m looking at the snowless pavements and imagining what my log cabin would look like. I think it would have a hayloft with a skylight like Heidi’s, and I’d sleep on sheepskin and blankets and stargaze as I drifted off to sleep. I long for that feeling of melting snowflakes on my face and in my eyelashes. Go on, tell me about how beautiful the snow is where you are... ❄️🤪

A new week, a little vintage inspiration, and yes, if you're wondering that's a little bit of our first snow on the ground. 🙊❄️

I’m a bit keen on snow as you might have gathered. And I’ve been wanting to live in a snow globe all my life. They’re such magical things. And I’ve wanted to try this picture for a week or two. Today felt like the right day to give it a whirl. My inspiration for it came from my son who, although being only ten, has always managed to turn everything he touches to magic. His creativity is unfettered, uncritical and his attitude is relentlessly can-do. There is nothing he won’t attempt to make. He pushes my own boundaries of creativity, and we’ve gone from me helping him realise his ideas to him helping me realise mine. I hoped he was coming into my snow globe picture with me, but at the last minute he jumped out and I was left in my snowy scene without him. And maybe that’s the way inspiration works. I still think it would have been a sweeter picture altogether if it had been him in here too, but I’ll just have to settle with it being a grown woman in a snow globe 😅
⭐️I’ll post the separate photos which went into creating this scene on my stories, along with some of the magic spells I used in case you’re interested 😉.⭐️

Words are just words on a page.
It’s the vision created through the heart that gives them a deeper meaning.
And that is how the story of love begins to unfold.

Many times, I had said
“I love you” under my breath.
It was not your outer appearance that caught my attention, but a sight of premeditated experience, a sense of déjà vu.
It was your heart that I had recognized, for it stood out from the rest.
It had aroused and exhilarated my soul many times before, and held me tight in my demonstrative dreams.
“I Recognize You”

According to Greek mythology, as punishment for teaching mankind how to make fire, the Titan Prometheus was chained to a mountainside in the Caucasus for all eternity. According to Georgian stories, it was the icy slopes of Kazbegi to which he was chained. @rooms.hotels
G R A T E F U L | Prima di venire inghiottita dal vortice natalizio, voglio fare oggi un piccolo bilancio di questo 2017.
Sono grata a questo anno (TERRIBILE) perché è stato molto duro con me, ma anche molto generoso.
Mi ha fatto piangere molto, ma anche sorridere molto.
Mi ha schiaffeggiato forte, ma mi ha dato la possibilità di crescere e di scoprire la mia vera strada...almeno per ora!
Mi ha amareggiato e deluso, mi ha fatto perdere molte persone, ma mi ha anche regalato grandi soddisfazioni e mi ha fatto incontrare tanti amici nuovi senza i quali non potrei nemmeno immaginare il resto del viaggio!
Mi ha confermato il supporto della Famiglia, quella che ti rimane accanto nonostante tutto, nonostante l'uragano che hai dentro. E degli Amici, quelli veri, pochi, pochissimi, sempre meno...ma che sono rocce e sono lì e sai che potrai sempre aggrapparti a loro.
Sono grata per questa foto e per tutto quello che significa.
Un progetto bellissimo, al quale tengo molto e che racconta ancora una volta la mia amata Roma.
Sono grata a tutte le bellissime persone che hanno lavorato per questo risultato e che ancora una volta hanno creduto in me e nei miei sogni. Grazie!
Tutti insieme siamo riusciti a raggiungere uno straordinario risultato: presto questo lavoro sarà su @magnoliarouge e ciò riempie il mio cuore di gioia e di orgoglio.

It has been a strange week with a series of unfortunate events for me, so I have been reflecting and thinking of how I feel accomplished to get me through these weird occurrences.
I feel accomplished because when I was in Lisbon, I was nervous of the steep incline and how that would hinder my experience exploring the city. I was nervous about not being able to keep up with people I didn’t know, I was nervous about my knee giving out, I was nervous about letting these things that made me nervous hold me back from living my life while traveling to this beautiful city.
I met people who pushed me, who accepted me, and who guided me through this city. I was able to see the city from a viewpoint that required much walking, and a steep incline, and I was wearing regular, non-grip booties no less.
I feel accomplished because I saw this view of Lisbon with my own eyes, and if I can do this, if I can get past my fears, I can get past the other hurdles that come my way - I just have to believe I can, right? Positive vibes.

It was my honor to have photographed a man who had been homeless for over 20 years, who is since that moment fighting for a place in society, who keeps being held back by bureaucracy but does not give up till he can finally be what he is so willing to be : a good father to his daughter.
She is in foster care, he is fighting his demons day after day.
I salute you Chahid.
