OMIKUJI ”fortune telling paper strips”
5 years ago back in Asakusa Temple I unlucky got (末凶, sue-kyou): future curse. Today i tried my luck and got (大吉, dai-kichi): great blessing. I chose to tie it . From the Edo Period onwards the tying to the tree was associated with “縁を結ぶ, en wo musubu” which means “connecting with s.b.” – in this case with the god of the shrine / temple. In Japanese the word “musubu” is used for “to connect” as well as for “to tie“. That’s why some people tie their good fortune strips instead of taking it home.
Beautiful, warm, shady and lonely...you are perfection 🌴🏖👒🍹🕶📚🎶💤

Every year for the past eight years I write a letter to myself on the day of my birthday. Yesterday was different, I didn’t do that. It is different this year around. There is not much to say. So here is what I will say about getting older: You get smarter. The brain recognizes patterns faster, and since ultimately that is what the brain is meant to do, this is a very good thing. With more life behind you, there is more context — and perspective is one hell of a gift, even if it comes from a stranger. By this point you’ve probably failed. And not in some small way, but in a way that shifts the ground beneath your feet. Most likely you survived, which is fundamentally the point. That thing you thought would last forever, didn’t. A corner was turned. You got better. That heartbreak quietly gave way to something else. Or maybe you are still in the process. Point is, all of this makes up a story — informs a set of values which will serve as a road map — the very thing you were after the age of twenty. And so my birthday list, in full for this year: just ride the wave and live for the present moments without looking back.
Here’s to the next year. I feel so incredibly lucky — I know so many good people. So to anyone who sent a message yesterday or picked up the phone...thank you. It means the world to me. ❤️

Photoshoot scouting and practice for something very exciting coming soon. I swear I have 0 social life and spend every day hustling like a mad woman but I wouldn’t have it any other way. I am loving every second of the creative process and can’t wait to share what I’ve been working on! 🌿✨
Did you ever pray in japanese temple? 🙏🏯👏
I wanted to wish a Happy Birthday to my favorite and inspiring @travel_inhershoes who always share interesting and positive messages, she's like the best women you can be in the world 💕
My friendly neighbourhood resident bird- The olive-backed oriole, or white-bellied oriole, is a very common medium-sized passerine bird native to northern and eastern Australia and south-central New Guinea. The most wide-ranging of the Australasian orioles, it is noisy and conspicuous.

Due to the result of the limestone densely distributed in the water, where the particles are so small that the so-called Rayleigh scattering of light takes place, scattering the blue in the visible light, resulting in this peculiarly blue in colour. The high water pressure from the blue cave created a funnel shaped spring, which at it’s deepest point has a depth of 21 metres. How freaky would it be to swim in this deep ice cold spring? 😣

I had chosen to leave, and live alone in a foreign country. 🇲🇴 🙏
