Foie - "Pretty Fine" (rough version)
I’m doing okay, you could say
deep in my heart, there’s a house that can hold just about all of you
righteous wrath is I think, calm and retains empathy before and afterward to all other beings.
oh no, they were really meant for anybody and I’m just glad that they’ve been of some help or relevance to you ♥
anxiety is immensely complex and can be an insidious and alienating experience (for oneself and others) - it’s often overlooked or played down. I’ve found it hard to approach others or speak up about it myself and I’m aware of the misconceptions/stigma surrounding mental illness in general, so I’m happy to talk or listen any time if you ever feel like it c:
I’ve felt tremulous and weary of late but my heart still works and my mind, although brimming with the sum of my experiences - yet aches for more
so I suppose I’m fairly average in the wider perspective of things haha
thank you so much for sending this by the way, it’s certainly left my evening on a positive note. wishing you with sincerity, all the very best for things to come ♥
Abandoned Cottages in the Woods Overtaken by Animals
In a series titled Once Upon a Home, photographer Kai Fagerström captured the new residents of abandoned cottages in the woods. After residents had passed away or relocated, a group of feral animals took over the spaces. In a story published for National Geographic, Fagerström captured the “wild squatters” in a handful of derelict dwellings near his family’s summer home in rural Suomusjärvi, Finland.
“When I go into these houses, it’s like stepping back in time—the past lingers in the corners”
I remember about a month or so ago, waiting tentatively in the GP’s office and picking up a rather dog-eared National Geographic (a small ritual of mine, it’s the only calming distraction for me of any subtance) and pouring through this article. It couldn’t have been more fitting and I showed it to my mother, who usually reads the newspaper and becomes rather stony-faced and deaf to my exclamations (eg: ‘woah mum, check out these Russian summer-time cottages by the river isn’t that just darling? mum. mum. mum.’). My description of the family of badgers caught her interest and brought a smile to her face on an otherwise droll winter morning. I’d highly recommend reading up on the back-story of this series, as it took a lot of patience and quiet discovery.
an excerpt from Anders Nilsen’s sketchbook after his girlfriend died (click through for full-size)
"I’m gonna sit right down, and write myself a letter
and make believe it came from you
I’m gonna write words oh, so sweet
they’re gonna knock me off of my feet
a lot of kisses on the bottom -
I’ll be glad I got ‘em
I’m gonna smile and say
"I hope you’re feeling better"
and close with love, the way that you do”
-Fats Waller, 1935
"I gotta break this cycle somehow, I’m sick of this pain
I’m sick of living this way, okay I’m done now - not having fun now
there’s just so many reasons, feel as though my soul’s a broken puzzle and I’m missing pieces”
