Do we all dream of a love that transcends time..? That’s what I as a little girl was taught.. that “one day” you will meet your prince and you will live, (wait for it) “happily ever after”. (but I guess that really depends on the choice of stories our parents or guardians read to us every night) I was also read Bible stories and stories of wildlife/animals. So earth 🌏 preservation can start at an early age, through educating our children and reading real stories (as well as the odd fairy tale 🧚🏻♂️) stories where conservation wins. Encouraging awareness and positive action for our world. So hopefully when they’re old and grey, their world 🌎 is closer to a fairy tale eden than a nightmare of plastic pollution and chemical waste.

All around the world, 🌎 the various species of pine tree are cultural symbols. They are the subject of folklore and religion, and of stories and legends going back many centuries.
Pine trees play an important part of the beliefs and legends of many Native American and First Nations people. To many Native people, the pine tree is a symbol of wisdom and longevity. To others, its needles and sap are medicine that protects people from illnesses, witchcraft, and more.
Pine needles, sap, bark, and nuts were used by Native people for medicinal purposes, traditional handicrafts, and as ingredients in recipes. Pine-needle baskets are still a popular Native handicraft to this very day.

LONDON – A fundraising project aimed at planting 1,000 cherry trees across parks in Britain — meant as a symbol of bilateral friendship — is about to begin.

The project has been organized by Japanese individuals and companies in both countries who hope initially to plant between 50 and 60 of the iconic Japanese trees across four major parks in London next autumn, followed by a commemorative ceremony in spring 2020, the year when Tokyo will host the Olympics and Paralympics.

You know this is a post that’s been a looooong time coming. I’m kind of skirting around the topic somewhat.. I mean, should I share personal things online?? I mean when I first started out, I was sharing things about my life and I guess I always want to try and keep this as real as I can. Yes I’m a photographer.. but I’m also a human being and so maybe some of my life will resonate with the right people.
Reality check.. life isn’t perfect. Yes my recent post was “you are perfect” which you are! We all are.. in our unique imperfect ways. We are Gods creation! Or the universe.. whatever resonates with you. For me it’s both. I see God as this large force of universal energy.. the goodness and creative aspects of our world. 🌎 Life. Gaia.
Anyway I digress.. I’m actually avoiding talking about what I need to put out here.. is this a form of procrastination??
Hey.. I went to see the Lady Lever museum in port sunlight, it’s well worth a visit. Really nice pieces presented. Tick.. tock..
Ahhh look at the time. Hey maybe next time I’ll get around to sharing some jiz but until then.. know! I’m just a perfectly imperfect person trying to make my dreams a reality..
I meditate every night, and pray to God/the universe for a sign, a breakthrough.. just something to say, yes Yvette you’re on the right path. This path has value to not only yourself but to humanity as a whole! Your new life holds some (way shape or form of) possibility and meaning.
We all need that feeling right? To feel valued.. or to give value. To be of service, to help! To be a part of something greater than ourselves. To have meaning. To know we’re on the right path.
Walk on.. face life head on.
Look.. I’m not shy! Let’s just hold hands and do it together right..?
“Forget me not” such pretty little flowers. In the right environment, forget-me-nots become naturalized, sowing their own seed. They attract beneficial insects to the garden, like ladybugs.. 🐞

"There was a storm in her eyes
rocky seas from a hundred stormy nights
but also there was a light
a warm wind
from a distant shore
so that's here I headed
towards the light
that shone in her eyes
with gentle seas."

I’m admitting something really stupid here now.. I started a new vegetarian diet right.. well I’m not screaming it necessarily from the rooftops but I thought I’d try it as a little bit of a lifestyle change! Have followed it for approximately two weeks so far.
My dad owns a fine food store on the Wirral which has a butchers.. he’s a chef by trade but he also butchers the meat for the shop. So being vegetarian is kind of like the Welsh turning English.
So anyway, this is how my veggie diet is going. I was so tired and hungry one day that I made a chicken Bap on autopilot and only “remembered” that I was “going veggie” until after I ate it!! How dumb is that! Anyway I’m back on track again, eating greens and fish!
Veggie is something I want to try because of the fact that I love animals mainly. But being a carnivore since birth practically, it’s a completely new way of living.
God loves a trier...
Hey! Who makes the rules anyway. Yes I’m flawed! Yes I shouldn’t have been so dumb, but you have to give yourself grace right? Just start again! When we go wrong, laugh it off and relax! Just do your thing. Do you. Because do you know what my biggest fear is? It’s being judged and hated!! I just realized this today.. this fear literally holds me back! It holds me back because I wonder what people will think! What they will say about me!
What’s the worst thing someone could say right... “you’re a try-hard idiot who’s “trying” to be vegetarian..” see when I say it out loud, it’s said! And I’m actually laughing! Isn’t it stupid what scares us?? But also how mean we can be to ourselves!!. Hey I’m all for facing those fears and nasty voices so Let’s make way for some more grace!
The great thing about hateful haters is that now.. with social media as it is, it’s literally not tolerated anymore. So I think these shadows I carry with me need to go! Anyone that does hate on you is not worth your time or energy anyway right. I think it speaks more about them and their own inner hate anyway if that was the case. So yeah, that fear NEEDS TO GO!
Life is wayy too beautiful and also short to waste any precious energy on what “you think”,.. others may-be thinking!! I mean clearly, does it even matter anyway? No. No it really doesn’t.
Love ya! Wish me luck! 🍀 I’ll let you know how I get in with this new lifestyle change.. Yx
(trying my new diet with grace and curiosity! It’s all about new flavors & new habits!)
