i love them.
bought and watched two really great ones this month.

jack white. what can i say? he is a genius.
in my opinion, one of the most intriguing and creative characters in music. the way he explores is inspiring.*
was sad when the credits rolled.

"the white stripes are at the same time, the most fake and most real band in the world"

* if you like this, you might also like "It might get loud"

wow. great film. beautiful art. interesting stories.

i was especially intrigued by the work and personality of mike mills and the story of margaret kilgallen, who died at the very young age of 33.
a lot of a-ha moments in this film.


the 26th year

these are my friends. 
these are my days.


parentals (plus one charlie chaplin moustache - my dad's one is real..haha) 
and brother lurking on the side

this is how i roll.

26 more years of this? i can't wait.

if your pretty face is in any of these pictures, that means that you're totally awesome in my books.

my friend anthony (lee martin) has this rad canon 500 something something fancy camera and he was kind enough to document the 26th year. check out more of his work on facebook. thanks dude.


like lot's wife

the heart is a strange strange thing.
speaking words i either completely misinterpret 
or don't understand at all.

looking back too many times.
into the same old road.

quiet this mind. you know how it never rests.
the past always steals my peace. 

that beautiful peace.

you know and i know
that looking back only leads to 
pillars of salt.


a note to self

i don't ever want to forget to have FUN and laugh at myself. 
that's when i am free.
to care less about what others think. 
to let others be.


a little girl in the big city

it starts with the seed of a dream. and it grows into a desire of the heart.
not easily swayed by the passing of time or fashion or even the way your eyes look to and fro from one option to another.
it remains. 
and you forget about it. and then you remember. and you forget about it again.
and then you remember again.
and everytime the desire grows and you grow more curious.

what would it be like to follow that dream into reality?

He leads you onto that unknown path.
and He makes a way where there is no way. 
He goes before you and He gives you favour.
and He answers every prayer.
and you know, you KNOW that this is where He is leading you.
away from the known.
into the unknown.

i know you are scared cos you cannot anticipate the change. the consequences of following.
but you are compelled. and you are excited.

don't be afraid.

don't be afraid to make mistakes.
try not to overthink, overanalyze or reason too much.
take risks. trust.
try not to avoid the call of your heart if it leads you to life.

when you go down that road. and its right.
when you take the risk. and its right.
everything will change. it will be great.
and you'll be guided by an inner strength. it is well with my soul.
the peace that surpasses all your understanding. guarding your heart and mind.


God will sometimes lead us down unknown paths.
and we'll have the courage to follow.
and oh boy, it will take courage.

but you will have peace.
cos you'll be living the life you were created for.
