beautiful nikki mcclure

to instantly fall in love with this artist:

a generous self-guided tour. worth watching every minute of this long lecture.

from her website:" Her work depicts the virtues of hard labor and patience, which is inherent in her process as well as in the images themselves: weathered hands washing dishes, people sweeping, mothers caring for their babies, and farmers working the land. But there is also a large element of celebration, of taking the time to roll around in the grass and get wet from the early morning dew. The need for all of us to lay down on the ground, grab hold of the earth, look at the stars and dream. She magnifies the importance of simple things, like the change of seasons, slowing down the world for a moment so we can actually taste it."

um amor perfeito

Um livro, poema, jogo. São cubos de brincar ao amor, com as sempre belas ilustrações da Maria João Worm.

Novo em folha, como a flor ( ou como o amor deve ser ). Comprei aqui, a chegar perfeito pelo correio, num dos próximos dias.
