The wind knows everything that’s inside you

“It’s like everyone tells a story about themselves inside their own head. Always. All the time. 
That story makes you what you are. We build ourselves out of that story.” 

                                                          ― Patrick Rothfuss, The Name of the Wind

“For example, the wind has its reasons. 
We just don’t notice as we go about our lives. 
But then, at some point, we are made to notice. The wind envelops you with a certain purpose
 in mind, and it rocks you. The wind knows everything that’s inside you. 
And not just the wind. Everything, including a stone. They all know us very well. 
From top to bottom. It only occurs to us at certain times. 
And all we can do is go with those things. 
As we take them in, we survive, and deepen.” 
― Haruki Murakami, Hear the Wind Sing

  2. machst du eigentlich lieber selbstportraits oder portraits von anderen? die bilder sind dir aber hervorragend gelungen – man taucht mit jedem scheinbar in diese wunderbare, sanfte und lichterfüllte welt ein

    • Oh.. das ist wirklich schwer zu sagen, weil das irgendwie etwas ganz anderes ist! :) Bei Selbstportraits habe ich das Gefühl sehr viel mehr entscheiden zu können, also das Bild mehr zu meinem eigenen zu machen. Aber ich fühle mich vor der Kamera nicht so wohl wie hinter der Kamera! ;)

  3. Is it awful that I don't even remember that quote from The Name of the Wind? I'm sad I don't though because it's such a lovely one! I love the last quote, too, and the photographs are stunning *as always*!

  4. Such a beautiful set…
    (can't wait to get the little package from your shop :)!)

  5. beautiful other-worldly portraits!
