i am fading.

(some of my mother's old childhood books! i absolutely adore the typography and colours and illustrations. also, i still read Enid Blyton books.)


"People make me feel lonely.
Their life stories, heart breaks and secrets fascinate me but their carelessness, little jealousies and unkind words push me into an abyss so dark and cold that I wish I would have never shown them my flowers of happiness.
And I want to scream “Can you not see how much time I spent growing these, on seeing the light myself? How strenuous it is sometimes just to rise in the morning?”
Instead I stay quiet and write:
People make me feel so very lonely."

Thank you Tasha, apparently my new blog updates won't be able to show up on your dashboard except you hit the follow button again. I just googled it, too bad :(
Changing URL is a bad idea :|

All of these shots are so colorful & those books are really cute. Vintage books are always beautifully illustrated. I noticed your title and quote were a little down, I hope your doing well! I'm sure you are surrounded by people who care and support you :)

I think that quote made my heart break a little. "Instead, I stay quiet and write." I feel like we all do that with our emotions.
