SHE WAS MAGICALLY BEWITCHED BY HER NAÏVE ASTONISHMENTS

hey beautiful creatures😊

how are you all doing?
 i hope it's all good and that everyone is feeling the joy of christmas coming around the corner:))) sunday it starts with the magic of advent. 
it's been such much rain here in epping these past couple of days but other from that there has been beautiful mornings filled with podcasts and books. just started reading mansfield park by jane austen. i hope to get as good a read as tolstoy's anna karenina which i read about a year ago or so.

here's some glimpses of my life this past weekπŸ’œ

i am playing with various tones/ shades/ colors on some of my most recent self-portraits
a nature spirit bewitched by the beauty of the planet



the scenario 
epping forest

a couple of other versions of my candy cake ballerina princesse faerie
she was reaching for the moon and instead become one with the stars 🌟

found this image in my google drive and memories overwhelmed me
i miss my daily afternoon walks in this garden

OH MY GOD πŸ¦‹πŸŒΈπŸ•ŠπŸŒŸ:)))!!!


flowers and nature
the beauty of life

"their beauty immerses us with color, taste & touch.
it also provides a third of what we eat.
beauty and seduction is nature's tool for survival,
because we protect what we fall in love with.
it opens our heart, 
and makes us realise we are part of nature and not separated from it."

-  this quote is from louie schwartzberg's
 ted talk: nature. beauty. gratitude.
i've included his whole talk in the end of this post.

louie's thought on blurting out "oh my god" πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’•

Oh: something caught my attention which makes one present/ mindful.
My: means that it connects with something very deep to your soul. it creates a gateway for your inner voice  to rise up and be heard.
God: is that personal journey we all wanna be on, to be inspired, to feel like we are connected to a universe that celebrates life.

oh dear his ted talk is so amazingly beautiful!!!

hey lovely creatures:)πŸ’œ

it's been such a long time since i blogged. i took time out, a very well welcomed time out. way longer than i thought but all comes in its own time, all needs to have its own time.

i have been creating lots of art & fine art photography projects. 
it has too been my birthday, went to the movies for that day (as you'll see below) and bought myself a dress from zara πŸ‘Έand spoke to my most beloved ones.
started taking a class again in my art school in peckham ( lived 7 1/2 years in east dulwich for those who does not know which is a neighbour to peckham) and i love going back there.  mondays = happiness!
i too bought a piano ( i always wanted one i even took classes as a child lying to the teacher saying that we did own one...it only lasted for so long...)  from ecco epping ( a charity shop)

he who works his land will have abundanceπŸ¦‹πŸŒΈπŸ•ŠπŸŒŸ

oh my god
she is waiting she is hoping she is dreaming
feeling abundance coming her way
i am part of...
you us the planet the universe 
we are one
i am a child of god
we have a heavenly father & mother
holding dear to that guidance and hope
epping forest

oh my god

hope you are having a happy joyous start of our weekπŸ˜ŠπŸ’œπŸ’•

recently i listened to (as i do weekly) krista tippet's podcast and her conversation with the amazing frank wilczek, this show inspired me from my brain to heart all the way down to my toes:)))πŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œhis new book "a beautiful question" is such a delight. you see, for a few years has been all about seeking beauty of our planet our earth our universe and to devour it, to nourish all my awake moments.


seeking
are you there beauty? it's me alice
a gratefulness princesse of the blooms
oh dear how precious thy beauty

i found this lovely lavender park outside of where my now art classes with jason is taking place. it is such a wonderful place, valentines mansion. it is filled with the buzzing of bees. they could care less of my sweetnessπŸ˜‚there was enough candy for them i guessπŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’•
the dress and "flowers" are from a place i volunteer at, havens house...a charity perfection filled with a carol & a maggie kindness (the epping kind).


 manipulating & such loveliness

i have found a few faves. i think i shot about 30 images for this self-portrait.

a corner of mine filled with magically created music by masters

it's been a while since i blogged. i have had a little lovely break refreshing my daily habits. it was in dear needed.
now yeey again my days are filled with ballet, french, morning walks, art, photography, mixed media and readings of poetry and the bible while listening to classical music. i too do some singing practices and above all dreaming. oh and yes the dream journaling.

so every morning i take notes from podcasts i listen too  and various books , at the moment the wonderful book series by terry pratchett's, discworld book one (the color of magic)...an imaginary world/ planet that are standing on a turtle and some elephantsπŸ˜‚ wizards and witches and all and everything inbetween.
