EPPING ESSEX MAGIC WONDERS

a new chapter in my life is happening:)))
one based out of epping essex

epping forest
 i have started exploring my new neigbourhood

the above magic can be found in the south of epping forest. this pond which includes a swan family is the boating lake by higham's park. started my adventure happily in this forest on friday and ended up lost  (literally for about 2 hours...)in its vastness...!!! i thought i could tackle this whole forest in a few hours:))) hallelujah was i mistaken. 

i feel so grateful and happy for this new journey to take place finally. this area is filled with peace and quiet, surrounded by the wonders of the forest yet very close to central london ( i am on the central line) where all my art, ballet and gymnastics classes are taking place.

 i am to devour the forest, get to know it fully and creations are to happen the anna pavlova candy cake fairy tale witch way;0)!

so
...
at the moment

organizing my new flat. 
i am taking my time because i want this space to feel special. a place to feel be joy. one filled with cuteness magic inspirations.

i found my lake:)

"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 can finally start living my life again
faith hope love

alice violette saga doll happiness

"when we nourish
ourselves with 
good people,
projects,
surroundings,
scenery, love,
magic, beauty and
self-care, we radiate light into
the world and
continually
sharpen our
vision, perception,
and clarity all at
once. this in turn
spreads to other
beings which
spreads to even
more. remember
that one tiny drop
can raise an ocean.
keep wanting.
desiring. doing.
breating in the 

sweet things."

A Flowery Child in Time Magic Beginning

happy wednesday to you all:)

how are you doing? how is fall happening for you? here in london it's been delicious weather wise:) today though it seems rain rain rain is to happen, but i am to keep my smiles up with delicious coffee at my new fave place in bermondsey which will make sure of this:) also the fact that i am again feeling like i am actually creating again = i am alive:))) gratefulness comes out of that. now there are only those slippery slopes days to fix. 

oh and a trump is now a president. how on earth did this happen? i guess the only thing we can do is to start here in our own little community to try a change, with kindness! to fight for a fair society where in the end it will be less anger and more of an equal level of quality of life for us all, not only spared for a few. empathy! i was gonna say that this is not a political blog but actually that is not true since life & society IS politics. 
the lovely rob bell created a wonderful podcast episode 

as of in my life though
...
picked up my new photos as created late this summer/ early fall!
the theme of my fall 
is
botanical
wild flowers

art class with my dear teacher

whether you succeed or not is irrelevant, 
there is no such thing.
making your unknown known is the important thing.

"i disregard the proportions, the measures, the tempo of the ordinary world. i refuse to live in the ordinary world as ordinary women. to enter ordinary relationships. i want ecstasy. i am a neurotic — in the sense that i live in my world. i will not adjust myself to the world. i am adjusted to myself. "
- anaïs nin
