icelandwantstofinemeandiwillpaythemallI found out about this place from a postcard in a gas station early one morning on one of our excursions. I love surprises. Basalt columns at Reynisfjara Beach in Vik, Iceland. My hand is nearly frozen and stiff -but don’t worry -there’s still hot blood in these digits. | Image by Flower Ta @flower_ta .

I took more pictures than you could ever imagine.

 

Here’s one.

 

Thank you to everyone in my life who helped make this trip possible and to all of the great people I met along the way.

 

 

<3 All my love,

We do not grow absolutely, chronologically. We grow sometimes in one dimension, and not in another; unevenly. We grow partially. We are relative. We are mature in one realm, childish in another. The past, present, and future mingle and pull us backward, forward, or fix us in the present. We are made up of layers, cells, constellations.

>>> HOLD ONESELF

Anna. by photographer Lukasz Wierzbowski. | Found via TAT-ART aka The place that I revisit constantly. The place that reminded me of the work of people I love.

The world is small. Lukas emailed me back in 2010 asking me to check out his work. I did and the exposure to his work prompted me to immediate write a post. I think his pictures are beautiful. His body of work makes me say to myself in my head, “I wish that I had created these. I would be proud of myself to have captured these images.”

It makes me want to be better.

This picture means everything to me right now.

Everything.

Right now.

Thank you to TAT-ART for posting this and thank you to Lukasz for creating this,

FYI: T Mag’s Design issue comes out today. An alert goes off in my phone and I go and get it. After all these years, I still love them. The layouts. The feel of the bible thin pages – I just love it.

For the veils and hats which you would wear every now and then to mass. For letting me get that pink swimsuit with the two side cut-outs.  For teaching me how to swim. And for the handmade scapulars that you would make for me out of felt and ribbon with the sewing machine.

This post is dedicated to Suzanne, my Godmother, who sent me a picture of myself, age 6, during the Holiday.

This is to say thank you and I love you.
