Written at 4 am on 25th June, 2018 / an exhausted lone traveller surrounded by people in Dubai International Airport, halfway through a 17 hour journey. A tired attempt to explain my absence, this year, my life, whatever you need this to be —
On the 30th of December, 2017, I gave myself six months. I don’t know what else to write about this except to say that it’s exactly what it sounds like.
I told myself I had to do everything in my power to survive, to find life. It was time to pull out all the stops and to look for the will to live even in the unlikeliest of places. And that do or die, I would go to Paris at the end of those six months.
Do I have the answers now? No. No, not at all. Far from it.
All I can say is that life is still hard and it still can hurt. Even when you’re in Paris. You climb one mountain to realise, there on the peak, that there’s an entire range still ahead of you – distant, threatening. But there are moments where the human soul can illuminate like it’s been held up to the light, where a heart can glow as if it’s never known pain. I’ve wondered so many times at the ridiculousness of such possibilities. But I know them. I’ve felt them.
Even though those moments pass by so quickly, I think that maybe, just maybe... I might stay for more. Just one more. Just another one. And another one. Maybe this is how a life gets lived.
There’s longing and sorrow, but there’s a little hope too.
“You’re an immaculate human being. And I don’t think you should go just yet.”
(Still going to sleep for 12 hours now because why not.)
Picture of me taken — when I wasn’t looking — by my dear friend @subtlemuse. I’ve said it so many times already, but thank you again for Paris. ❤️
Länge sen vi drömde om Pariiiiiiis ;D
Impressionism can be so funny, amirite?
My favorite museum in Paris🍃 the space is created around the art, giving the viewer the opportunity to fully experience, interact with, and enjoy the work—an opportunity not offered at larger museums.
A Kik gosta do Monet. Muito. 💖🌸 A Kik da coleção ‘viajar ...com Lola’ representa a sensação de vento no rosto, a brisa, o ar que você respira e te preenche; sensação que a gente tem quando conhece um novo lugar. 🌿 #comlola #kikcomlola #monet #museelorangerie
What’s the difference between a water lily and a lotus flower?
The biggest painting I’ve ever seen. Monet is beautiful, Paris is lovely, and I never want to leave France
