— ‏‏‎ ‎‏‏‎ 𝑗𝑎𝑛𝑢𝑎𝑟𝑦: a blossoming metamorphosis

  • sparkling wine; the trill of birds in the morning, followed by the symphony of raindrops in the afternoon; leftover panettone for half its price at the market; vanilla-scented body lotion after a cold shower; lists of books soon to-be-read; fresh bread with cinnamon and honey; the blank pages of a new journal being filled with dreams and wishes; re-discovering an old beloved band, white chocolate milkshake with heart-shaped ice cubes.

— ‏‏‎ ‎‏‏‎ 𝑓𝑒𝑏𝑟𝑢𝑎𝑟𝑦: in time of daffodils

  • the moon gracing the skies mid-afternoon; memorising e.e. cummings poems; the warm seaside wind; coconut bread served with a spoonful of greek yogurt; moon jelly season; white cotton curtains swawing with the wind; getting an ear infection from swimming in the ocean too often; recovering in bed while watching 'the joy of painting'; the acceptance of feeling fragile in exchange for the gentle promise of healing.
