Last Bits of Summer

I had these pictures lying around from a month or so ago, and I thought it would be nice to share them with you now that they are still slightly relevant. And the pictures and memories of summer cheer me up in these difficult times, so there you go :)


Can anyone read the names that were carved into this tree? I always love seeing weathered signatures of someone somewhere in history leaving a mark saying "I was here!". Makes me wonder who that person was. 

Sometimes, when I come across a place that reminds me of the fact that we are just a tiny speck on the timeline of this earth and even humanity, I just stand there and try to feel history. Thousands of people have walked were I stand, have felt feelings there, have lived their lives passing by that spot where I am standing and thinking. Even the place where you are sitting right now has history, meaning. Think about it.

  7. Very true. My mom and I walked down the street my grandmother grew up on the other day (we've recently relocated back to that city, I'd never been before) and although her house was demolished all I could think was that she'd walked down that alley as a girl! I realize what you're saying applies more to anonymous people, but I love the sense of history of realizing a member of your family has been there... eighty years before!

  10. I hope youre dad get well soon. I know such times very well. Everything seems to be allright, nearly perfect but in one moment something schocking happens and everything seems to crash into a black whole of pain and sorrow. Be strong!

  11. deze foto's geven me een ongelofelijk nostalgisch gevoel naar de ongeschonden zomers van mijn kindertijd!
    En ik vind het, net zoals jij, ook zeer leuk om soms eens stil te staan bij dingen die vroeger miss gebeurd zijn op de plaats waar ik nu zit..de straten die ik bewandel, etc..
    De geschiedenis fascineert me keer op keer!

  12. This summer has been bittersweet. Sometimes I get too tired from overthinking all aspects of history and destiny, but still, there's no future without.
    These pictures are beautiful, peaceful, but still melancholic. Totally unimportant aspect is that we have almost exact shoes, which I also wear in my last post.

    Hang in there, girl!! xxx

  21. I've been catching up on your blog, and I was heartbroken to hear of your recent traumas. My own father had some very serious health issues not so long ago, and so my heart goes out to you and your family during this time. I hope he gets better soon and that you can take him for that pizza. xxx

  22. I looove this dress. It actually made me think of the Dylan Thomas poem 'Do Not Go Gently into that Good Night' but rather put on a yellow dress and do not go gently into autumn :)

  23. Ik vind het ook heel fijn om daarover na te denken. Als je van Antwerpen naar Zelzate rijdt kom je langs een pilaar die een brug ondersteunt, daarop staat er geschreven 'marry me'. Elke keer als we daarlangs rijden glimlach ik even en denk ik na over hoe dat het misschien een deel van een grote scheme was van iemand om zijn/haar geliefde ten huwelijk te vragen. Jammer genoeg kan ik de boom niet lezen (sniffles) maar het doet me altijd denken aan Robbie hoed en Marian!

  24. Hm, well I know my butt is the only one to ever have sat in this office chair since it was new when I got it... I guess maaaaybe my desk has history?

    I'd have been way too paranoid to wear white shoes near all that green grass. Grass stains, ah! You look lovely.

    I hope your father is doing well and getting better. My father is rather ill himself so I know how worrying it can be, especially if you live at all at a distance.

  25. You look lovely in that yellow summer dress. I love the little white shoes you paired with it. I think about the people who left their mark in places too. I wonder who they are and where they are now if they're anywhere.
