1st of July

10:53 PM

It was my birthday.
I realized that, despite being a week late, I should document it somehow.

I have a tendency to isolate myself on my birthday, don't really know why, it's just the way I feel. I usually end up sticking to one friend and spend the day with him/her (cell phone off, laptop off). It's like I feel the need to reconnect, just be by myself, be myself.
This year, though, it wasn't like that. I wanted to be with people, and felt like having a more conventional type of birthday. And even though, I still felt the need to isolate myself throughout the day, I didn't. I spent the afternoon baking my birthday cake, then had dinner with my family and a couple of my best friends, and then we had a "Games Night". I had some other friends and family coming over and we played cards and board games all night. This is one of my favourite things in the world, just so you know. :)

I blew my candles and made a wish.

I want luck to be by my side all through this year.
I want the wind to blow.
I want the birds to sing.
I want dreams to reach me.
I want life to emerge.
I want to be.

With love,

  3. Beautiful post, and a beautiful picture. I also tend to isolate myself on my birthday, but felt the need to have a more conventional one this year. Unfortunately, it didn't work out that way. Even so, I reconnected with myself anyway. I hope you don't mind if I share your birthday wish...

  4. Great picture!

  5. Teresa será que me podes dizer se as fotos que colocas aqui são analógicas? Que rolo usas? Adoro o efeito basso e pastel das fotografias.

  6. Nem todas são analógicas, mas a esmagadora maioria é, sim.
    Esta foto, no entanto, é digital. Quase todos os meus auto-retratos são digitais. :) Beijo *
