This has got to be my favourite set of photos Edric
and I did together! It was shot under a dead tree with branches overhanging in all directions like a skeleton umbrella. The first photo was of me pretending to be part of the dead tree i think. Pretty sure i felt mass awkward leaning around under a tree but yeah it turned out pretty cool with the branches and all! I feel like a zombie from some arcade game.. but in a good way, you know?
I saw this jewellery box in the window of a charity store a few months ago and really couldn’t say no to the tapestry. Now i know tapestry this and tapestry that is always grandma this and grandma that but i just can’t get over it! Everything with this sort of tapestry/carpet weave i just have to own. I mean i have a jewellery box, a backpack
, a overnight bag, a blazer, a vest (oh just saw another bag
on my bookshelf) with this fabulous floral tapestry thing. So much love.
Now we didn’t know there would be a dead tree at the park at all, but luckily i had an outfit that would suit the location perfect. All brown, murky, muted and well dead tree like (the fringing on my vest pretty much is like a dead tree in clothing form!)
Oh and i’m completely getting into the whole fringing/crochet/bohemian sort of look these days. So this vest seriously just had to be mine. When i wear it, it makes me want to twirl around in circles.. it flies like streamers in the wind.
Absolutely amazing what nature has to offer! Guys, if you have any local trees like this.. you have to give this a shot :) By the way, Edric

Steve Jobs’ 2005 Stanford Commencement Address
Last but not least, Steve Jobs’ 2005 Stanford Commencement Address. Here’s a youtube clip Tom once showed me. It’s a little bit inspirational and perhaps also a little bit tear-inducing. Not really a fan of Apple as such but there are certainly some more than powerful words said here. Enjoy.
“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.”
A long blog post always makes up for a lack of blog posts.. right? :D
