i do believe

we're surrounded by mythical creatures all the time. they're in books and in movies and when we were young sometimes we could see them or be them. i think it's nice to go back to that time when we could be anything we wanted to be, when one minute we were human and the next we were a fairy. perhaps we turned our cats and dogs into dragons or unicorns. whatever it was, it was magic.
the mystical part in all of us should never die. sometimes it's nice to just...believe.

hi! i'm Lena, but you can call me Lulu. i love Frida Kahlo, feminism, art, reading, kitties, and drinking tea. i love the film Amelie and i think that the tiny traveling gnome has stolen my heart. i want to own a bookshop and live above it one day. i get quite passionate about things. i tend to think too much. i'm kind of a hermit.
