“On earth there is sadness inside of the beautiful things.”
Sophia de Mello Breyner Andersen
The Bonds Behind the Flowers with Flâneur/ O Fascínio das Flores com a Flâneur
Adorei este dia, obrigada a todos por terem partilhado o vosso precioso Sábado comigo e a Flâneur.
Moments spent in Flaneur exploring the meaning of the flowers with lovely ones. A very heart warming day. Thank you all.
Do you know that exquisite sensation when you meet someone for the first time, but, deep inside of you, something tells you that in another life and place you already meet her/him? These persons are our kindred souls, old souls that wander in this life and are meant to meet again and live what was left unfinished… So please, be aware that life has an end, so don’t forget to treasure the ones you love the most and show everyday how much you care for them. You won’t regret it, believe me!
In this photo is a letter to the special soul Vibeke and an old tray that I have found broken near to my house, outside of a street litter. I brought it home and fix it, and now it looks precious.
I’ve been succeed in doing this project that I have idealized in my mind long time ago and I am so happy with the results. Now, I’ve a place to hang beautiful things like old paper ephemera, letters that I am currently writing to my dear pen pals, letters that I’ve received, bouquets with gypsophilas… I’ve placed this frame in my working place, and certainly it will help me to be more creative and inspired by the little treasures that hang there. Our hands are really an amazing gift that the universe offered us… I feel that the reason that we are alive is to create beauty and things that bring us and the ones that we love joy: Small things, the best things…
P.s – Soon will be a video showing how to do this frame, is pretty simple and I don’t even know if I am able to show it, but I will try.
Preparing a parcel with vintage ribbons from my shop to send out on Monday.
A beautiful letter from Vibeke came inside of this beautiful box. Everything was so thoughtful that I felt like I was inside of a Jane Austen’s Book.
Finally something inside of me, chaotic and good, allowed me to create these two postponed letters, like Friedrich Nietzsche would said: “You must have chaos within you to give birth to a dancing star.” So these are my freshly born dancing stars ready to reach my neglected pen pals.
Slowing packaging, seeking the harmony and simplicity trough the movements of my fingers. Loosing and encountering myself in this experience of wrapping. Aspiring for perfection — knowing when it is the right moment to stop. Being content.
When this parcel arrives to its destination, it will be unwrapped and, in this temporal dimension, something magic will happen: slowly what was hidden, becomes unhidden: revealed…
“First, the initially hidden object of quest, whether a view, an artifact, or a person, must be believed to be something positive and worth having access to. If we have a reason to believe that the object in question is not worth exposing, like a Pandora’s box, we will not be enticed to open, unwrap, or reveal it (unless morbid curiosity gets the better of us). (…) The positive aesthetic experience derived from concealment and obscurity, thus, is dependent upon the possibility of uncovering the wrapping and having access to the object of longing. (…)”
