arrangements & other details


Dear readers, another month has passed without me writing or showing images. Partly, this is due to our still far too busy schedule and tons, that need to be adjusted, builded or moved. At least brushes are involved again.

Still, I don't know about you, but I am also having a bit of a hard time, dealing with everything else, that is running through my head right now. Running through life, in general. There is the beauty of summer; the taste of cherries and midnight wine. And then, on the other side, there is so much heartbreaking stuff going on and things, that make me boil. Seriously boil. Still millions of people, who have to flee from hunger and war, while the amount of racist attacks increases like crazy, we have Great Britain with a decision, I would have never believed to happen and #Blacklivesmatter, so does every single human being on this planet deserve respect and equal rights. You see, even now, I don't even know where to start or to stop. Many of these conflicts and problems are not new, but it looks like they're mounting up these days and I am truly struggling with finding proper words or at least, a direction to head to.

Therefor, I am trying to concentrate on the small things, the details. Slowly moving forward, beauty and anger side by side. And I am forcing myself to always speak up, when it is needed. Always talk about respect and treat people respectful. Never ignore the slightest signs of racism and hate. Confront others. Even when it is annoying and people will look at me in a weird way. "There she goes again." What the heck, the opposite would be even harder to bare. Happiness simply doesn't stop with me.
