{eternity in each moment}


. . . the now softly fading rays of sunlight breaking through the overcast mornings of early november skies with melancholy evoke quiet daydreams of the always inviting combination of grey & yellow, flax & slate, silver & gold . . .

{p.s.} thursday already! hope you’re having a beautiful week
