The beauty, the bird and the beating



I just discovered the very interesting work of Helena Kvarnstrom through the blog 'Another rather lovely thing'.
I believe she's both a photographer and a writer.
Her photographs are gorgeous, raw and mystic. Her writing is haunting, but in a beautiful and pure way.





Excerpt from her novella Violence

your hand will run into my cheekbone and i'll become sand.

the times you fell in love me with were: when i ran out of the store and you found me on the floor in the bathroom and i would not stop shaking. when i could not breathe on the bench. when i borrowed scissors from your mother to cut up my pills and did not brush my hair. i am running out of reasons for you to love me even before the piss yellow snow melts and you know it is up to you now. you love me best with a wet face and swollen lips and i don't mind much.


Just some beautiful images from here

I feel like flying



I feel hurt and cheated



I feel good



I feel full of energy



I guess i just feel alive

Oh so much beauty my dear! I love the one with the "angels" on benches, and that last one is so gorgeous as well! <3

And yeah, Christmas is HUGE here, but sadly it has also become very commercial. Tomorrow is a day we call Black Friday, and it is a very popular day for shopping because of the big sales for Christmas, but you know what's sad? People often are injured and nearly killed (perhaps some have been, I'm not sure) because they all line up at the stores and when they open it's like a stampede of people fighting for the best things in store. It's really ridiculous because even if they're trying to pick up the perfect gift for someone, I think the manner in which they go about getting, in fighting or attacking other people for it just ruins the whole sentiment of the gift anyway. :(

Anyway, thanks for your lovely comment dear, hope you're having a wonderful week! <3
