a new grey and rainy winter day
a new visit to my favourite garden


film friday: blue velvet

"i'm seeing something that was always hidden."
blue velvet, 1986.
there are movies
and then there are david lynch's movies ♥

blue velvet it's dark and haunting
and also so absolutely wonderful
i don't think i could ever get tired of watching it

winter bloom

“in joy or sadness  flowers are our constant friends.”
kakuzō okakura

june, 2014.
i always smile at flowers
whenever walking down the streets.

no matter how sad or stressed i might be,
nature always cheers me up.

ps. i highly recommend to anyone and everyone to read, at least once in their life, kakuzō okakura's the book of tea


film friday: about time

"we're all traveling through time together, every day of our lives. all we can do is do our best to relish this remarkable ride."
about time, 2013.
lovely cornwall, pretty frocks and time travel theories & paradoxes aside,
i really liked how it was not so much about romance
and so much more about family bonds & filial love
and how to embrace the beautiful, little things of life
even if you can live every single day twice or thrice.

as dear emily once said, forever is composed of nows
