A bucket of battered pomegranates. I’ve held this photo for nearly a year, hesitating to post it. It doesn’t feel “Instagram-worthy”. There’s much pressure on social media (a lot of it is self imposed, I realize) to gloss over our more common experiences and broadcast only our highs. I’m guilty of it. That fear often paralyzes me from showing up here or uploading a simple, ordinary moment like this. It’s a personal pattern I am trying to break.
This was taken on a blustery winter morning in Zarakes, Evia. It’s a small seaside village on a Greek island where each Wednesday a local farmer’s market assembles in the main street. We buy bright green heads of broccoli, tightly packed bundles of aromatic fresh dill, crisp, juicy apples and mounds of succulent tomatoes and small, thin skinned cucumbers.
On this particular morning the wind was blowing the stalls around, and the skies were a smudged charcoal grey. There was a single slip of light and it fell right on these pomegranates. I happened to catch it before the skies sealed up again, and shortly after began pouring rain. Laden with produce, we ran to the car and began the rocky, off-road journey back to our housesit. More on that magical place soon.
When I'm with you I'll make every second count
Cause I miss you
Whenever you're not around
When I kiss you
I'll still get butterflies years from now
I'll make every second count when I'm with you
Yeah we've had our ups and down
But we've always worked them out
Babe am I ever glad we've got this far now
Still I'm lying here tonight
Wishing I was by your side
Cause when I'm not there enough
Nothing feels right
So I'm coming back to show you that
I'll love you the rest of my life.
Не знаю, чем я заслужила такую командировку, но я, кажется, в раю 😍
