diary 272: just because it's black in the dark; doesn't mean there's no color

hey!

how are you all? i hope you are having a joyful end of august days.

as you may know i wanna keep this little space of mine a joyful inspirational place to come visit. but to be honest right now it would be truly dishonest of me if i pretended to be filled with joy. see i have struggled with my mental health since i was a child, i am not ready just yet to say exactly what i have been/ and am still struggling with. the hardest journey i have ever been on is this one that started in feb. 2014, it had been building up over the course of a little more than one year. i started to get my life back in order in november of last year thanks to medication and therapy for a year and a half with day care in a very amazing hospital. obviously (or at least for me) there were many many practical issues i had set aside, i could only focus on staying well for the longest time. i am slowly starting to get things in order:) however, recently there has been a couple of seriously worrying stressful things happening. my medication sort of deals with all the worries and stress, but the other day my psoriasis is back. as a 6 year old to soon turn 7 i was diagnosed with this, the stress then was starting school. the little me, i feel such compassion. in the beginning i only had it on my elbows but soon it was covering my whole scalp, it was awful. so itchy which made it bleed by me scratching. i was too ashamed about this. 6-7 years later it slowly healed. and now it is back. on top of this, my gas is not working which = ice cold water. i need to take magnesium baths now to do all i can to not have this thing flare up that badly again. 

so whatever i say here i am telling myself:)

on a lighter note, i have a little team behind me so i am not alone:)
paris, thank you for today!

so despite me being severely stressed and most of the times, feeling unsafe there are good moments too:) for example when i was invited for tea at my friends sue's house and to meet her beatufully furry kitty katty:)))  was such a precious moment for me:) next week we are to explore charity & junk shops in crystal palace:)

A Journey Of Devouring Quirky Sweet Cheeks Faerie Tale Magic

yes that is us
the faerie tales of violette
our journey

i have had a few days of tiring paper fixing thingies type of days, so draining. reality can be such a downer. anyways, feeling a tiny bit empowered since i am starting to understand some basics. yeey:) august overall for me is to organzie and plan for our fall of 2016. feeling tiny excited. looking forward to our next season.

 so the august days are filled of teachings, plannings, clearings with magical mornings.
meeting lovely people. afternoons in my park and my garden.

as for something else;0)!
 this lovely new friend googled my middle name....  to maybe catch a glimpse of my works:)? oh dear!  i knew this would have me google myself:) i found a lot...specifically my most personal works coming from a journey that started for me in february of 2013. 

here are some from this path
with
some other thingies:)

next spring
=
ophelia

with love from ophelia

i haven't seen you
for what seems like an age,
not even a word torn from the
corner of a page
have you scrawled to remind me
that you knew i was here,
alone in the dark
with my mouth full of fear
that you'd never return.

while i've tried to remember the 
sound of your voice
my heart has bled violets
i've had no other choice,
and now you've returned, you don't 
know my face;
your eyes are blank walls
and nobody tells
why all i can see
is my reflection in them;
no recognition
of our skins' intuition -
what is the condition?
i don't understand.

and now i'm in water
surrounded by flowers
whose petals i've cried
over hours and hours.
my heart has grown heavy
and i'm starting to sink,
my hair turns to willow,
my eyes cherry-bloss pink,
returning to flowers 
is all i can think.
from out of my chest
 sprout blue hollyhocks
all round me is silent 
but the sound of a clock
and the roll of the water
 as it circles my face
like translucent lace;
the veil of my watery pall.

i wanna end this post
