If I could I’d press mute to all the noise and disorder,
and throw myself with abandon to the dance
of these balmy days and velvety nights.

I’m drawn to that late-afternoon glow,
when a hazy veil descends before the lens.
And that faded, milky light come evening time,
enveloping the skin like the softest cotton shawl. 

Päivistä haluaisin häivyttää hälyn, epäjärjestyksen,
heittäytyä joka solulla  näihin hellepäiviin
ja iltoihin, jotka ovat linnunmaitoa.

Nautin niin loppuiltapäivän kajosta,
joka laskee linssin eteen pehmeän usvaverhon.
Ja se illan kelmeä, kermainen valo,
jonka pehmeyteen voisi verhoutua.

Oh yes...
Gorgeous summer days to you sweet Kerrie ❤

Yes, I think that's the thought at the back of my mind.
And why inconveniences like needing to cook and tidy up
feel so unmotivating right now ☺
A lovely summer to you, x

Thanks for always being so sweet and kind dear Nines.
I think with such a long, dark winter over here,
the summer light does feel extra magical.
Hope your having a lovely summer over there, x

It's been so nice to hook up on Instagram, Alicja,
it's another world over there :)
Thanks so much for your kind words,
the sentiment is completely mutual! ❤
