“…the lovely full moon reflected in gold on the calm sea where it unwinds a broken column of black velvet and liquid gold, aimless but magical.”
— Jules Laforgue, tr. by William Jay Smith, Selected Writings; “The Moral Tales,”
obsessed with those stone stairs and archways in the middle of the woods that remain standing after the rest of the building has fallen to ruin
Don’t walk up the stairs
if i want to get abducted by the fae that’s MY choice and you can’t stop me
There’s something about a day when you start a new notebook that feels so fresh and life-restoring. If you’ve been following me for a while then you know I’m almost exclusively a Moleskine user (soft cover, squared pages, that’s the one). However I recently visited one of my favourite stationers in London and this one caught my eye. I think what drew me to it was the tiny gilded maxim, barely noticeable in the corner: ‘what should have been, is’. Once I saw it was squared paper inside I had to have it. I can’t wait to find a use for this one!
19/3/18 A rare moment of good lighting has graced my room today. So a rare studyblr photo has reached my blog to celebrate it. I’m feeling motivated to work but as soon as I get going i suddenly feel so tired. I’m feeling a little sad today, it’s nearly easter so the break will be good, but it means saying hello to a lot of work, and this week is so work heavy because after the strikes I’m having to cram a lot of work in, and so are the department. xxx Emily
