Worn 74. My 25th birthday and thoughts about it.

Today I reach a quarter of a century. Hopefully I will reach two more, maybe even three. It's strange how I feel: young, full of energy and visions, yet quite old. I feel calm as if I would have lived much longer. I'm not in a hurry to live life. I like to think that I still have plenty of things to go through. God and bad. Even things that are typically lived in the early youth. I won't press them to happen. I am patiently awaiting. Ready for the years that are to come. Totally satisfied with what have lived until now.
I have learned that I enjoy life the most when I give time to things. When I live slowly, taking whatever time is necessary to understand what I experience. Time to learn. Time to taste every little bite. Without pressure. Perhaps not everybody can do it that way. I guess is a luxury to have the possibility to live like this, so open. I feel fortunate about it.

Some people have told me that I am an old soul. Others, that I have an atemporal kind of beauty. Both seem great compliments to me. They represent my way of thinking: the extremes which coexist in one place, in harmony. The female inside the male, the male inside the female. The young inside the old, the old inside the young. The beauty inside the ugliness, the ugliness inside the beauty... Not the black nor the white, but the infinite shades in between.

Have a nice day. I will too.

Atmosphere. Cozy, colorful... October

I still have a couple of posts about Mallorca left (which I don't know if I will end up publishing because I don't like things out of season) but I cannot let go October. Days are passing and the season is in full bloom. I need to celebrate it. 
October is my favorite month of the year. Perhaps it's because my birthday is in it. Perhaps it's because of the beauty of the changing colors and mystery of the rainy days. Perhaps it's because "All Hallows Eve" and all the magic around it. Those who know me also know that during this month I feel specially inspired and euphoric. The wild witch inside of me comes to the surface and wants to taste the air to the last bit. 
This year I am brand new mother and I was afraid I couldn't celebrate this time as I used to. But for now I am quite satisfied: everyday I made long walks along the canal and I get mesmerized with the vision of the leafs and the smell of the air. I feel that Fauna is enjoying too: learning about coziness and spending lots of time with the greatest father. 
The few days that are left of this wonderful month will be intense too. Tomorrow, my birthday. Few days after, Halloween. My dear friend Fabia comes to Berlin to spend this special weekend with me. Together with other friends we will make this days worth to remember during the dark season that is winter. I couldn't be happier.

Beauty is in almost everything around us. This is a blog about beauty from my point of view.
