“Life cracks us into unrecognizable shards 
of former incarnations. 
Slivers of our hurt and our pain and our shame 
nestles next to fragments 
of our truth, our divinity, 
our fierce reclamation of power."

"It is this very brokenness that allows us to knit together, 
kaleidoscope style. 
And we spin and shift and turn to the light 
until we appear brilliant, 
lit from within. 
Suddenly we are revealed; 
unexpected beauty born directly from brokenness."

"We have to be willing to break in order to become.” 

words: Jeanette LeBlanc

softly into a new week.
packing for tomorrow's shoot 
an early train ride away,
picking out white details
on a dark day.

My soul month November arrived
with its diffused skies,
darkening nights
& invitation to retreat a little,
dream some more, 
quieten down.

The colder & shorter days
give a special quality to light.
That’s when the earth’s muted greys glimmer.
A whole lot of softness with edge,
I think that’s what I’m forever trying to capture.
Not too much of one without the other.

A warm buzz inside
from spending time with a dear friend yesterday,
a walk with my husband today along the coast,
the breeze adding an extra spring in the step.
Current state of mind:
subdued on the outside,
a riot of colour inside.

After dinner,
a glass of red & this interview with Ellen Von Unwerth
(my goodness how kind and down-to-earth she seems…).

Wishing you a lovely rest of the weekend.
Just that, rest.
