{this moment}

{this moment} - A Friday ritual. A single photo - no words - capturing a moment from the week. A simple, special, extraordinary moment. A moment I want to pause, savor and remember.

Under the shade of the Jacaranda tree, with a warm easterly blowing, we spent a morning discovering all the new leaves, shoots, buds and flowers in the garden. There's a lot happening out there at the moment...

Here are a few books that I'm reading at the moment, and yes, I do always read several at a time!

Ghosting: A Double Life by Jennie Erdal
(Just delicious - I am savouring every moment of this one!)

The Lucky Ones by Rachel Cusk
(The first story in this collection of interconnecting tales blew me away. I'm still reeling from its intensity but eager to read more...)

The Kitchen Diaries by Nigel Slater
(One of my favourite cookbooks - I lent it to someone and now that I have it back, I'm rediscovering it all over again. It's a goody.)

Puffling by Margaret Wild and Julie Vivas
(A beautiful story with beautiful illustrations - it's been a bedtime must for a couple of weeks now.)
