“«Ho sceso, dandoti il braccio, almeno un milione di scale
e ora che non ci sei è il vuoto ad ogni gradino.
Anche così è stato breve il nostro lungo viaggio.
Il mio dura tuttora, né più mi occorrono
le coincidenze, le prenotazioni,
le trappole, gli scorni di chi crede
che la realtà sia quella che si vede.

Ho sceso milioni di scale dandoti il braccio
non già perché con quattr'occhi forse si vede di più.
Con te le ho scese perché sapevo che di noi due
le sole vere pupille, sebbene tanto offuscate,
erano le tue.”
- Eugenio Montale

On this day in 1840, my favorite artist ever was born. For that reason, I’m posting my favorite painting of his at the moment (Pathaway in Monet’s Garden In Giverny) - it’s on my lockscreen and cover photo on Facebook too 😂 - and some of the shots from his temporary exhibition I visited in Rome earlier this year.
Happy birthday Claude Oscar Monet 🌸
P.S. I was in a hurry when I was posting this and the composition of the second pic bugs me very much. Don’t mention it.

What I’ve been thinking about today: what separates great from legendary? A very well written book from a literary masterpiece, a beautiful and meaningful visual art from the iconic paintings and sculptures we see in museums? Who even decides what’s a masterpiece and what’s not? Were there artists and writers better than those who we consider the greatest, but they are, for one reason or the other, not heard and known of?
Have you ever thought about that?

I had to reupload because the galaxy part somehow ended up blurry and my perfectionist ass couldn’t stand that. So here it is again

World Mental Health Day was yesterday but I am, as per usual, late for everything (maybe not THAT late this time, since this whole week is a Mental health awarness week).
I don’t have to tell you how important mental health is, because you, hopefully, already know that.
Instead, I’m writing this caption as a little reminder - be kind to others, but even more important, be kind to YOURSELF. It can be hard at times. But. I can honestly say that learning to be my own best friend is the most valuable thing I’ve learned in my 21 years of existence.
(If you struggle with that, imagine you are a child and take care of yourself accordingly.)
Big part of that is REACHING OUT to someone of you need help. It’s okay to be fucked up and lonely and not okay. It’s okay to need professional help. You are not any less for that!! Please remember that.
If you feel like you have no one to talk to, you can DM me. And I mean that. There are people in the world who have “WWDD? - What would Dunja do?” on their lockscreen, so I think I can say my advice is pretty okay.
Take care💓.
