Yesterday was Valentine. For me it was my cousins birthday. We woke up early to surprise her in the morning with balloons and breakfast. The entirely family had come to my brother’s place where my cousin was staying for a while. Even the family dogs came. I left Yoko at home.
I’ve seen many things written on Valentine’s day. Some just think it’s commercial. Some are too single to give anything about it. It seems like it’s not a lover’s day anymore. More a celebration on being single. Protesting to be together with some one. I’ve always thought of Valentine as something stupid but I became to see the point in this romantic day.
It’s true in fact you should always be lovable and nice to your significant other. But in daily life there’s not always time for romance. Either people already have kids or people are too busy. It’s always good to remind yourself to be grateful in life and maybe Valentine’s purpose was to be grateful for your lover. I think it’s beautiful.
I was super grateful to celebrate it with my family in the morning. Although they may not be my lovers I do love them very much. Me and my uncle shot these images.
Hope you had a grateful and romantic Valentine. Tell me about it if you want.
The sun has disappeared for weeks now. I woke up today feeling the need to write but I felt so uninspired by the weather and the dark clouds circling around my apartment. The rain on my window glass. The only consolation was a warm kitty on my lap with an occasional chance of some nails buried in my skin. When I shot these images I knew I was going to be in a bit of an analog mood. Amsterdam enveloped by clouds. It seems never-ending.
After last weekend, which was intense I’ve been processing business and trying to be creative as possible. The day after the weekend I haven’t been feeling really great but today I somehow woke up with the most vivid dreams and felt inspired by them. I’ve written about achieving goals before and how hard it sometimes is. People are proud of their succes and like to show it but I’m more intrigued by their road to succes.
