"E Ciàula si mise a piangere, senza saperlo, senza volerlo, dal gran conforto, dalla grande dolcezza che sentiva, nell’averla scoperta, là, mentr’ella saliva pel cielo, la Luna, col suo ampio velo di luce, ignara dei monti, delle valli che rischiarava, ignara di lui, che pure per lei non aveva più paura, né si sentiva più stanco, nella notte ora piena del suo stupore."
back to work, in my lovely city, Amsterdam.
I'm excited about all the new projects to come, a brand new website with cool new jewelry, a collaboration with @odettebarberousse
and I want to start drawing & screenprinting again!🖌 🎨
➳➵➳I'd love to have your feedback. Do you like to see inspirational colorful pictures like me Lomography pictures or graphic patterns or would you rather only see my jewelry? Please let me know in comments! THANKS! #inspirationalpicture#iamamsterdam
One of the photos I took of @sly5thave in the last months. I thank all the great artists that I'm shooting these days that have made music came back again into my life.
Soon more pics of @sigloxixoficial
For me, the moon is our watchful guardian, overseeing the Earth and all its crazy ongoings. I love its illusive stillness and often look up to admire it, reminding myself that at all times, regardless of what is going on, there exists true calm.
Don't let your dreams be just dreams. ✨ One of my favorite quotes.
All throughout my teenage years (and the first half of my twenties 🤔), I wanted to follow a different path. I had dreams but I didn't want them to be just dreams. I wanted my dreams to become reality.
It was not easy and I had to deal with a lot of judgement based on "standards", "expectations" and my favorite - "society".
I was being judged for not being the person society wanted me to be. I was taught to get a job that pays the bills whether it makes you happy or not. I've been judged for wanting to move abroad and start a new life. I was told I should be dating people from my hometown and not overseas. I've been judged for not wanting to have children because that's something all women should want.
The list goes on.
When someone told me I couldn't do something, I would do anything in my power to prove them wrong. Stubborn as I am, I didn't want to give in but I always cared too much and I think it's only normal to do so - especially when it comes to our parents, our grandparents, other family members and close friends. Those people are important to us and we don't want to let them down.
At some point I started to feel guilty for not meeting their expectations and for not being the person they wanted me to be. I felt guilty for simply being myself.
I was told I was doing everything wrong but their wrong was my right. What they considered to be the right thing, felt wrong to me.
Have you been there before?
I would say you can't make everyone happy but you can make yourself happy. People like to have expectations or make assumptions. It's not their life - it's yours. Chase your dreams. 💗
