the only thing for certain is that everything changes.
it could be useful to remind ourselves that our basic needs never change:
the need to be seen and appreciated,
the need for nearness and care,
and for a little love.

this is given only through slowness in human relations.
in order to master changes we have to recover slowness,
reflection, and togetherness. there we will find renewal.

Santa baby.

Soooooo I don't need anything for Chrissy, just my friends and family.
I've been reflecting on what a beautiful year it's been.
So grateful for everything and everyone in my life...
BUT if we must go there, I would wish for Santa to give me
...these stellar {skates}.

They remind me of when Jen, my mum and I would skate down
Iron Horse Blvd. Which was a weekly date on the weekends.


She's my sister. Without her, I don't make sense.

this week has been a flash of exhaustion and not being able to maintain momentum.
i don't know if it's the full moon, the eclipse or my body coping with grief.
change is all around me and i think i'm just acclimating to it all.
hopefully this weekend will be the way to recovery.

Only people who are capable of loving strongly can also suffer great sorrow,
but this same necessity of loving serves to counteract their grief and heals them.
Leo Tolstoy

one day that has equated to everything the past 14 years of my life and
today it changes its history.

one, happy birthday mum you would have been 59! a tea party like you always had for us would have been for you on this special day. may the memories continue to grow with age. love and miss you so.

two, my grandma, the first princess di, was laid to rest today with a celebratory champagne ceremony to a beautiful long life. I am happy to have witnessed the way in which you aged so gracefully. we will miss you so.

It’s not what you are that holds you back,
it’s what you think you are not.”
Denis Waitley


She spoke words that would melt your in your hands
and she spoke words of wisdom.


Celebrate endings,
for they precede new beginnings.
