“When one door of happiness closes, another opens, but often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one that has been opened for us.” – Helen Keller

Peaches, pears, oranges,
strawberries, cherries, figs,
apples, melon, watermelon,
oh, music of my senses,
pure pleasure of the tongue;
let me speak now
of a fruit that fascinates me,
with the flavour, with the hues,
with the fragrance of its syllables:
oh tangerine, oh tangerine.
Pêssegos, peras, laranjas,
morangos, cerejas, figos,
maçãs, melão, melancia,
ó música de meus sentidos,
pura delícia da língua;
deixai-me agora falar
do fruto que me fascina,
pelo sabor, pela cor,
pelo aroma das sílabas:
Eugénio de Andrade, Portuguese poet (1923-2005)

“The spirit of her invincible heart guided her through the shadows” – Gabriel Garcia Marquez, One Hundred Years of Solitude
*this is a quote from one of my favourite books of all time*
My daughter playing with the summer wind and our orange curtains. I always find these moments so magical, like a beautiful dance.
*This is not a real polaroid. I took the photo with my camera and gave it this polaroid frame later*
One love. One universe. One planet. Whispering. Around me. Far away. Giving. Growing. One love. Learning to love. Pure bliss. Everywhere. Everyday. Choose love.

Yes, this one of my favourite states of mind – even though I love every season. I can’t stop smiling when I look at this photo (can you spot my son’s hand on the right of the bench?). It is a tough walk to get to this beach and imagine if you are carrying some summer stuff with you. At this point we were enjoying the view and resting before we continue our walk down to heaven. This Portuguese (still) hidden beach is called Odeceixe!
This is what you get if you dare to go down the cliff path! I think it’s worth it, don’t you?
you worry too much.
You have seen your own strength.
You have seen your own beauty.
You have seen your golden wings.
Of anything less,
why do you worry?” – Rumi
Welcome to my city: Porto (Oporto) in Portugal! These are two pictures I took a few years ago during Christmas Time. I decided to play with the Christmas street lights and this was the result. Which one do you prefer?
