and it’s ok.
For a very long time I tried so much to follow projects and stay on track with some sort of scheduling for this blog. Today I’ve decided to give up. I’m not saying I’m going to stop writing and sharing here, but I’ll never again trying to follow some sort of project from other bloggers.
I used to love this little blog of mine, but something happened recently and now it seems so difficult for me to sit here and share. I keep thinking that maybe I shouldn’t share certain things and I should try to make this space with a little more structure. Maybe I should follow more what’s out there. Maybe I should share only work related things. But all of this is not me. So this morning I consciously decided to stop worry so much about this little space and just write stuff I care about and share some personal stuff. I hope this is ok with you and if it’s not, I’m sorry. I truly am. But this is me and I want to find my voice again.
So in the last few days I’ve taken even more pics than usual (all with my phone) and I’m sharing some precious moments with you. Flowers and little things (like the little piece of an old tile I found at the beach) that inspires my drawings. One of my botanical illustrations that I’m carving into a stamp for new works. A little moment of classic Italian mood at the table. A spread from the latest Oh Comely magazine, love reading this first thing in the morning when it arrives in the post. This is my daily life in this little village on Lake Como. This is me after I moved here from metropolitan Milan, after I changed my life and decided to try it out on myself. It’s not always easy, but I love every minute of it.
Yesterday I took half a day off and decided to explore parts of the lake that I’ve never visited before, the views from high up are breathtaking, the little villages are charming and my eyes and heart are full of beautiful little things.
