leunig's poem


HOW TO GET THERE

Go to the end of the path until you get to the gate.
Go through the gate and head straight out towards the horizon.
Keep going towards the horizon.
Sit down and have a rest every now and again,
But keep on going, just keep on with it.
Keep on going as far as you can.
That’s how you get there.

a colleague of mine sent this beautiful poem by leunig, who is also a great cartoonist based in australia. a quick reminder for us to keep reaching your dream. you can slow down and take it easy but don't ever give up. 

have a great start of the week!

freunde von freunden











i always love stalking (um i meant, taking a peek) at someone else's day to day real homes. so when i came across freunde von freunden at danica's blog i'll just have to repost this. fvf is an international interview magazine based in berlin and above are some fave different houses i found across their site. 

i especially am really excited to find sandra juto and johan have been interviewed on fvf because i have been following them since my early days of blogging (the last two pictures), see their home here.

also see my old posts on other home interview projects the selby, lifecycling and the closet voyeur. love this kind of projects, so if you know any similar ones do let me know!

little news, this year i will be a blog contributor over amanda's blog here comes the sun on the film photography topic. very excited. 

how's your beginning of the year so far?

majestic casual



have i ever mentioned majestic casual youtube? i found really good music and photography from there.

still in the vibe and excitement of the new year, here's some new music finding from majestic casual - i'm currently really liking love is real by moods.




i'm also liking this tune gitdown by flofilz. as much as i said i wasn't really into hip hop music, i think my taste has slightly changed and i'm loving the jazzy piano playing in the background.

do you have any new music to share?
