Reflections

Sunday at last, nice and quiet, coffee in my hand and apartments to check on the internet. I’m listening to the birds chirping outside and peeping on Sam who sleeps like a puppy with his paws gathered.

The days pass by quickly, I barely notice them, between photography classes, interpreting  here and there, a coffee with a friend and making dinner, Monday turns into Wednesday and suddenly it’s Friday all over again. I want to do all sort of things, I find photography exhibitions nearly every other day, but either they collide with my classes or the weather prevents me from getting out of the house.

Today we’re going to a friend’s place for lunch where I’ll be photographing her  3 years old with Sammy boy. It’s raining again, I can feel it in my limbs, especially after the party yesterday; we didn’t go to bed until 2 am. I’m too old for that, while everybody was dancing I petted Kalle, the dog of the guests. Both he and I were looking at each other with that pained face saying “turn down the music and then turn it off”.

Have a lovely day!

Round and round

Hi, how y’all doing? I had a minor breakdown yesterday, felt all of a sudden old and out of place and quite unhappy with how things are for the time being. Instead of doing anything about it (although it´s quite hard to steer clear of the dark thoughts once they set in), I let myself collapse into a sea of tears, feeling sorry for myself instead of seeing all the good stuff I´ve got going on. And then I went to sleep at 10:30 pm, exhausted and fed up with myself.
