Ever had a slice of chocolate cake that made your toes cramp with delight? Me too! This particular cake was a mouth orgasm delux. Starting this year, I'm making it a Midsummer tradition to devour copious amounts of dark creamy goodness. Hell, I'd take another 4 hour train ride just to get one more bite. Perhaps someone has a simple yet scrumptious recipe to share?
I kept my promise - I brought my Pentax! There's something magical about film. It makes the world seem a tad more interesting. I have one more roll to shoot. Let's hope for great weather this week.

I've had a long weekend away. Far from city life and work. It was a beautiful trip with a lot of laughter, good food and an abundance of stunning nature. I thought I'd come back rested but the break made me realize just how tired I am. I could use another week to catch up on sleep and then muster up the energy to start running again. It's awfully hard yet worth the tears and frustration. More to come.
Happy belated Midsummer!

I try to imagine my life in a year from now. Five years. Sometimes ten. I don't need much to be happy. Once upon a time I needed everything within range just to feel safe. Now I want less and less of things and a heap more of meaningfulness. Quality. This is a lengthy operation, but it's speeding up.
I see myself having a small garden. I grow herbs, vegetables and have a beautiful succulent collection. I knit, crochet, sew and I do it well. I head into the city on Saturdays and bake fresh bread for brunch on Sundays. Art is an active part of my day. I run because it makes me feel good. Sometimes the dog runs with me. I watch more foreign cinema. I walk barefoot every chance I get. Spontaneous picnics, road-trips and concerts are always welcome. I read before bedtime and I sleep 7 hours straight. My photography has been featured. I stay in touch with my friends and dare to be open about my feelings. I love. I am loved.
