the folly of youth

This is a blog dedicated to all the beautiful things I love.Mostly tv-shows and movies.


Marnie (1964) dir. Alfred Hitchcock

You don’t love me. I’m just something you’ve caught! You think I’m some sort of animal you’ve trapped!

The Judge: Leave. It’s your destiny. You can’t live your brother’s life for him.
Valentine: I love him. If only I could help.
The Judge: You can. Be.
Valentine: What do you mean?
The Judge: That’s all: be.


Like Someone in Love dir. Abbas Kiarostami (2012, Japan/Iran)


Amy Adams for Max Mara Timeless is Now Directed by Mario Sorrenti.

Grace Kelly is my fashion icon. There was this regal quality she had and yet there was a down-to-earth quality, as well. She allowed people to see when she was with her children, with her family… a sense of fun, a sense of humor. And yet, she carried that alongside great intelligence.
There are so many things in my life that keep me grounded. One of the things I value the most is nature. If I ever feel overwhelmed… just stepping outside, listening to the birds, feeling the sun, the very basic elements of the earth… all of those things are so special and timeless to me. Timeless to me is authentic. Timeless is now.



The real challenge in my life, the real hardship is me. It’s always been me. As long as I can remember I’ve never not been afraid. Afraid of failure, of letting people down, hurting people, getting hurt. I thought if I kept my guard up and focused on other things, other people, if I couldn’t even feel it, well then no harm would come to me. I screwed up. When I shut out the pain, I shut out everything. The good and the bad. Until there was nothing. It’s fine to just live in the now, but the best part about “now” is there’s another one tomorrow. And I’m gonna start making them count.
