finding beauty & style in life—not just in a closet

I always find beauty in an unmade bed
especially one caressed by the sun.
The creases and folds that had earlier enveloped one’s body and soul
become a highlighted reminder that when we rise each new day
we leave behind the dishevelled and messy layer of yesterday.

Your words were cold and calculated.
With meticulous precision you peirced them into me,
one at a time, showing no mercy
leaving behind fridgid splinters of your brokeness, not mine.
I was vulnerable, unprepared, not properly dressed
and had no protection.
You took advantage of me,
of our relationship
of my charity
but never again will you do so.

Interior Strandgade 30, 1901

The work of Vilhelm Hammershøi brings a deep sense of peace and contentment.
A solitary woman seen only from the back evokes mystery and intrigue.
Empty rooms filled with light hold back darkness and gloom.
Each painting creates a space of clarity and calm
where minds are still and souls are at peace.
