Note To Self, Note To Others

To mark national time to talk day, I thought I'd share one of my inktober doodles that seems rather apt today, and every day.

It's OK to not be OK. It's OK to ask for help.

As my mum and I were walking through the backstreets of Corfu town last summer, we stumbled upon a traditional Greek orthodox wedding. It whisked me right back to 2000 when I was a bridesmaid at our family friends Mixalis and Necteria's wedding at St. Spyridon church. Nostalgia overload!

February and Valentine's day go hand in hand, so I thought I'd share a few of my favourite lines dedicated to that funny thing we call love:

To love is so startling it leaves little time for anything else. // Emily Dickinson

If equal affection cannot be, let the more loving one be me. // W. H. Auden

The devil hath power t' assume a pleasing shape. // Shakespeare: Hamlet: Act 2, Scene 2,

Journeys end in lovers meeting. // Shakespeare: Twelfth Night, Act II, Scene III

The high luxury of not having to explain… // Virginia Woolf, from a diary entry
