the above image is a feature of the wonderful creations by alexander mcqueen. who on earth is the  photographer? please if you know, email me/ comment:)))

i always endowed madness
with a sacred, poetic value,
a mystical value. it seemed
to me to be a denial of 
ordinary life, an effort to 
transcend it, expand, to go
far before the limitations of
the human condition.

I Never Fancied, Jewel - I Profess You!

i profess you jewel

so live your life that the fear of death can never enter you heart. trouble no one about their religion; respect others in their view, and demand that they respect yours. love your life, perfect your life, beautify all things in your life. see to make your life long and its purpose in the service of your people. prepare a noble death song for the day you go over the great divide.
always give a word or a sign of salute when meeting of passing a friend, even a stranger, when in a lonely place. show respect to all people and grovel to none.
when you arise in the morning give thanks for the food and for the joy of living. if you see no reason for giving thanks, the fault lies only in yourself. abuse no one, for abuse turns the wise ones to fools and robs the spirit of its vision.
when it comes your time to die, be not like those whose hearts are filled with he fear of death, so that when their time comes they weep and pay for a little more time to live their lives over again in a different way. sing your death song and die like a hero going home.

(poem from act of valor the movie)


yesterday's art class was SO productive:) 
even though i should have learned more teachings from joanna i just had to continue on my own journey. everything has its own time!

i never fancied, jewel - i profess you!
bright i see and soft i feel the outside of a flower.
save but glow inside and - jewel, i should guess you,
dim to sight and rough to touch: the glory is the dower.

you, forsooth, a flower? nay, my love, a jewel-
jewel at no mercy of a moment in your prime!
time may fray the flower-face: kind be time or cruel,

jewel, from each facet, flash your laugh at time!

HOPE LOVE JOY

hey:)))

how are you all? 

i hope you are having a life filled with joy and not filled with worries. there are such terrors happening in the world of ours. such sadness. constantly. so it can easily makes us loose hope. this place here will always be dedicated to hope, love & joy. i think it's important. what if we all came from a place of love & joy? maybe to strive towards this will make our world a safer happier place? i truly hope so.  just to start with oneself. one step at a time!

of course
always 
with
honest
authenticity

every morning now includes this wild flower garden within dulwich park. it's such magic. this morning i brought my zenith-e camera since it's such a blessed creature. it just creates magic:)

here is a photo by my samsung galaxy phone together with some photoshop play:)

one of the days i looked like this
 vintage "nightgown" from the classic car boot sale
from one of their £1 bins:)))
antique cross necklace (gift from my mom)
bangles from screaming mimis
prada belt
office sandals

my dress above was bought for this purpose:))
remember?
 it was part of my faeries of the flowers series


dream with the dreamers and invent
things you never knew you had in you.
think with the thinkers and discover
ideas that mold who you are. smile at
strangers and make friends that last
a life time. laugh with friends and
let those memories burn through your
heart. travel with travelers and
explore a life beyond your imagination.
love only one, and grow old with your
best friend. let these things bring
fire to your soul. so when you look
back at your life, you'll have no
regrets. and you can leave this place,
better then when you found it.

i'll leave you with some faerie magic


"i have eaten fairy bread
and i have drunk fairy wine
and i've danced in a fairy-ring
among the eglantine

the fairies have enchanted me
and that is how i know
when i look out upon the sea
where the waves blow

that it isn't any wind at all
that stirs them to a froth
but just a laughing elfin sprite
dancing the north

and that is how i always hear
down in the singing brook
a maiden's voice imprisoned where
the willows lean to look

and the willow, she's a princess
although she seems a tree
and all the flowers talk at night
just like you and me

this may seem strange to your mind
but it isn't strange to mine
for i have eaten fairy bread and
drunk the fairies wine."


(unknown)

i wish you hope love joy

if you have time

THE VIOLETTE GIRL & SOME ROBERT BROWNING ROMANCE

hey:)))

how are you all? i hope you are having a colorful butterfly week:)!? 
please fill me in if you have the time

today was such a joyful day. 
thanks to a paul & tracey, the teachers of my garden class at walworth garden & farm.
well not only them but too some girls like lisa!!!! and a seejung....only god knows how to spell her name but it's how one pronounce it (in my world anyways) i got to plant beetroot, sage & something else. i am working on a little film covering our 5 weeks (i created a tiny movie from our 2nd class which  you can view here)

yesterday was such love with joanna at the union chapel. the theme/ subject of the day was that of van gogh. so joanna had brought sunflowers and some magic paint:) always the places where she teaches is full of wonderful human beings. such a treasure to devour. 

tomorrow  
the camera cafe and getting some ballerinas and the adidas gazelle perfection sneakers. 
plus visiting some galleries. 
and yeeeey, sending out our second issue to our family of violette loves. to the wonders of dilka bear, jenny alexander, lisa lily rose (whom by the way is our faerie tale magic editor) paulina gora & simona candini. 
oh

the nature of flowers
from my endless magic morning walks around dulwich

found a little notebook from 2008 which such doodles & thoughts. i paired some of the thoughts with a book of the works of robert browning, a book published in 1905. and it was a gift to someone in london 1922. someone has devoured these pieces of work back in 1922. is that not magic? such history. i am to devour. such things to discover in the world of charity shops.
