Diary 266: An Alice Solantania Saga Weekend in East Dulwich

"why i wake early
hello, sun in my face.
hello, you who made the morning
and spread it over the fields
and into the faces of the tulips
and the nodding morning glories,
and into the windows of, even, the
miserable and the crotchety-

best preacher that ever was,
dear start, that just happens
to be where you are in the universe
to keep us from ever-darkness,
to ease us with warm touching,
to hold us in the great hands of light-
good morning, good morning, good morning.

watch, now, how i start the day
in happiness, in kindness."

how are you? how was your weekend?

 we here in london are about to get spring. and it makes all the difference. i have had 2 beautiful morning walks with filip & fredrik (bring a drink hahaha), had such a sunshine saturday so i devoured our local saturday market. i did not plan to buy eggs but this happened, even duck eggs:))) i met jessie of jessie makes, her smile is = the most adorable. then i hung out at the french house & toast dulwich. it basically sums it all up. now i am ready for a new week of wonders.

my days, at the moment, are filled with scanning original prints & playing with photoshop! too i am adoring exploring apps both for photography & film:)))

here's a tiny video:) see me? me with photography books at toast dulwich! a lovely place to drink tea in (or to devour some champagne).

it's impossible,
said pride.
it's risky,
said experience.
it's pointless,
said reason.
give it a try,
whispered the heart.


i am off to pick up a passion planner:)
