“though we’re strangers till now,
we’re choosing the path between the stars
I’ll leave my love, between the stars …
as the pain sweeps through, makes no sense for you
every thrill is gone, wasn’t too much fun at all
but I’ll be there for you
as the world falls down …”

“Call and anywhere, I would go
All I’ll ever have, I offer
All I need is hope
All I ever am, I offer
And all I need is hope …”

Another several days of incredibly meaningful words exchanged, and I feel truly uplifted on a wave of amazingly positive energy and like-minded ideals. This is exactly what I needed in the days preceding my birthday; as I get older, I don’t find that I necessarily feel it in my psyche or my bones, but seeing that number creeping ever-upward is disheartening. Still, you’re only as old as you feel and as energized as the company you keep, and I’ve had some truly wonderful conversations since I wrote my very personal post on Saturday morning. I even managed to see my instant messages cap for the first time ever, which made me feel very fancy, hee hee! It’s the little joys in life. ♡

I visited the always beautiful and inspiring Chouchou V region for this picture, which exists as a gorgeous cathedral in the sky. My dress is the sumptuous and slinky Helena Gown by Thalia Heckroth, and I paired it with a fortuitous find from my visit to YS&YS a little while back: a delicate anchor necklace called Ever! How could I resist? It felt like an especially apropos symbol for the last few days, when words have been my lighthouse, and hope, my anchor. I hope you had a wonderful and restful weekend, dear reader. So much love and appreciation for you. ♡
