Find out which shot i was most pleased with from this shoot here :)
Also find out how i answered questions from an interview with blogger/photographer Alex Cameron here :)

i know i've been boring people with a lot of talk on philosophy and mindfulness. these things sound hard-to-digest for those caught up in a cycle of busy-ness and to-do-lists. but what if i tell you you can feel calmer. you'll have clarity. you'll feel happy. you don't need to read books or meditate. all you have to do is think less. stop dwelling over what you couldn't do and where you should be. give your whole to what you are doing right now. give it a try!

According to Eckhart Tolle, suffering needs time. If we stop living in the yesterday and the tomorrow, we stop nourishing our sorrows. Ask yourself, "What, at this moment, is lacking?". You'll find that the real you is devoid of any suffering.

This picture is a part of the picture-based interview i'm doing for Alexandra Cameron. She gave me 15 questions, and i have yet to answer 6 of them. One of the questions was "What scares you?". I'm scared that time will pass me by. that it will take me over.

What are you scared of?

this too shall pass

You've got to get yourself together
You've got stuck in a moment
And now you can't get out of it
Don't say that later will be better
Now you're stuck in a moment
And you can't get out of it

Those of you who are very close to me know how confused i have been over the past few months. i felt stuck. i hit the dip. today i feel i'm out of it. 
between the battle of the mind and the heart, the most common suggestion is to balance it. that answer never sat so well with me. partly because i am simple minded. if it's the heart, i will go for it. if it's the head, i will go for it. but mixing the two is something i have to battle with. However, now i acknowledge that whichever is the winner, it is a part of me in the end. and there's no loser in this field. 
I admire you who has followed your heart all along. That act takes courage and resilience. Especially when every single person has a different opinion about what you should do. These people, as much as they care for you, give you a subjective opinion based on what they wish they could have done. So the next time you ask others for suggestions, don't take it seriously! Keep an open heart and a clear head.

a rendezvous with romance


Of course i know that these are all for show
To decorate my limbs and let us know
That through these things a constant love will flow
With them we are not on our own

a fairy tale ending

there were the remains of a mist from last evening. the trees were slowly turning yellow. it had been raining forever and a day. when i finally got out of bed, i did not feel like myself. my head was in a daze. i started walking around wearing a mask. singing songs of happy tunes. but it was clear to me, i was lost. and that when i got back, i would never be the same.

I know! Another mask picture. But I've always found these animal masks so interesting. They add some kind of spook, don't you think? Imagine my brother walking the dog at midnight wearing this mask.
