Hello from the longest night of the year! 

If you're an old reader of this blog you may remember me loving Yalda Night as my favorite celebration of the whole year. This night is really special to me. Tonight I decided to publish my Yalda-inspired project to celebrate this beautiful night with you, my very dear readers! 
May your longest night of the year be warm and full of fruity moments! :)

Days are crazy around here and I am so looking forward to pass these two weeks because my sister and her family will be here in two weeks for visiting and I can't be any more excited! 
Hope everyone has calm and beautiful days. :)

p.s. I hate deadlines!

This is so funny that I had totally forgotten about a third roll of film swap which Julie and I did very long time ago! But you know it seems that the film knew about the poor result so it hid itself from me; because when today I picked up the developed film from lab and scanned it, I could barely see any of Julie's exposures there! (Sorry Julochka!)
They are not really satisfactory as "film Swap" shots but I like them as they are. 

p.s. Thank you so much ladies, it's great to know that you're still here. :)

Hello friends.
It's me. Shokoofeh! 
From a cold Monday night. 

Life has been a whirlwind lately.
Work. Projects. Portfolio. Thinking. Processing ideas. Writing. Letters. 
And I am in the midst of applying to graduate school. 

We even had snow in the early November!

I am feeling fine.
I miss here so much. I actually miss this blog, and taking daily photos. 
I miss you, and your comments. 
But I am there most of the times, which is easy and inspiring. 

So don't forget me, please?
I will be back to you so soon! xo

My creation

It's all about gratitude. To be reminded of all the things you've always had.
All the things in your life which are so naturally yours that you forget about. 
The simplest, tiniest, most implicit in your soul; your flesh.

To be reminded of how life can be unsophisticated sometimes. 
If you just want it to be. 

The simply happy moments between two seconds; between two short breaths.
Just the feeling of being alive. Being able to laugh. to hug. to touch. 
To feel.

It's not easy all the time, the life I mean.
But it's so simple and so magically yours which you can't help but falling in love with it. 

Happy November, world.

Okay, there is really no picture in this post. Because... because I haven't taken any. Instead, I have a very engaged mind filled with thoughts which substitute every single minute with another.

It's raining, and it makes me feel better. It's raining so hard like it's never going to stop. Like nothing is ever going to stop... And that's all I really need to believe.

The unfamiliarity of each moment. 
The unknown journey through the tiniest pieces of everyday.
The change. The perpetually sense of lost. 

It's raining. 
The words, ideas, concepts appear for a moment, or two. 
Melt down just before I could grab them.

I should make a list, I know.
I know that's my way to keep things ordered. 
Yes, I need to write things down.
On a piece of paper. 
Then suddenly everything is alive. Clear and distinct. I know.

And there is a title above my list:
Plan your exit from the comfort zone!

It's still raining.

Hello friends.
Finishing off my exam finally gave me some ease. Loads of laundry done and now it's time for clean up in my room and workspace. 
Nothing like a cool autumnal day can make me feel inspired! :)
