My Resolution

Amazon

“For last year’s words belong to last year’s language. 
And next year’s words await another voice. 
And to make an end is to make a beginning.” 

ps. Not that I don't write. I do. 
Maybe too much, with too many words. 
To say the essential of each new day  
with few words only. That is a gift .

Sleep

Bedroom, 1890, Vilhelm Hammershoi. Danish (1864 - 1916)

Vilhelm Hammershoi - artinthepicture.com 

“Moments before sleep are when she feels most alive, 
leaping across fragments of the day, 
bringing each moment into the bed with her 
like a child with schoolbooks and pencils. 
The day seems to have no order until these times, 
which are like a ledger for her, 
her body full of stories and situations.” 


by Michael Ondaatje, The English Patient

THE Dress

Cecilia Chancellor by Oberti Gili for New York Magazine March 1998
via

The New Years Eve is coming. 
Today I am dreaming about an old fashioned party 
with long dresses, black tie for men. 
Music from classic movies. Scent of cigars. 
Tall antique candle holders.
Wine. More wine...

Bed Haven

Trouvais

In insomnia, in winter cold weather one has to dream if sleeping is not possible.
Dream eyes open.

This is what I am dreaming right now.
And the dream happens in Provence. 
Lavender scent is all around me and
I am taking a nice afternoon nap,
 in my yard in this beautiful iron bed.
Before waking up for some gardening ...

I want to stay in this dream.
Forever.
Never mind the sleep.

Silent Night





 


Christmas is finally over. 
Once more, before starting to think about the New Year, 
I will listen to my all time favourite Christmas song
Performed by Sinead O'Connor. 

This is so delicate and beautiful.
Until Christmas 2013...

Willow Tree


H.Samuel

Years ago on Facebook there was a gift application with these little
Willow Tree collectibles.
I used to get these virtual gifts from friends and fell in love with them immediately.
Have not seen them since, always wondered who makes them. 
Luckily I had saved a photo of one of them in my files.

Thanks to Google Image Search Tool -
I found the H.Samuel - webstore that sells them.

Looks like I have my future set up for birthdays,
Christmas pesents, etc. for certain dear loved ones.

This one is my favourite, Guardian Angel.
Bless You,  

Bette




Picasso

One of Picasso's famous quotes is:

"Everything you can imagine is real."

What a master!
With 4 simple strokes he doesn't leave much for imagination.
It's so simple.
When you know how!

John Stezaker

John Stezaker - Saatchi Gallery

I just love this!
I found it on Pinterest and checked the background:
the artist is John Stezaker and you can see more of his work in Saatchi Gallery

"In his collages, Stezaker appropriates images found in 
books, magazines, and postcards and uses them as ‘readymades’. 
Through his elegant juxtapositions, Stezaker adopts 
the content and contexts of the original images 
to convey his own witty and poignant meanings."

Cool!
