SHORT STORIES: "Spinning Minds"




I think Everyone is a bit broken on the inside,
  whether they know the reason for it or not.

Everybody keeps on running,
  whether they have something to run from or simply don't know
 how to stand.


Everyone is frightend by silence,
  whether it is their own or the silence between one another.

Everyone gets tired from time to time.

Everyone has got their minds filled up with memories
  of feelings never told.

Everyone has got a secret love.

Everyone is seeing ghosts.

Everyone gets lost once in a while in order to be
  found.

Everyone lives for joy.
  And the simple moments, that fill you up from the inside,
 waiting to burst out and pick you up from off the ground.

Everyone is scared of falling,
  but is longing for the jump.

Everyone thinks they're the one to stay when everything else falls away.

Everyone needs a little more time for early sunrises and late sunsets.

Everyone wants to get just a little bit closer.

Everyone wants to stay awake just a little while longer,
  before the night loses its ground.

Everyone holds on to the childish hope that heroes will never die,
  and villains will always retreat.

Everyone wants to sleep in late on sundays.

Everyone needs some music, poetry and flowers in their lives.

'Cause Everyone keeps on searching for magic,
  without seeing it hiding in the small corners of everyday.

SHORT STORIES: "The Departure"




 
 
 
"Child, we're afraid you've lost your way", They said.
 
"I hope so", She said.
 
"It's the first step to make a new path."
 




WISE WORDS: Philip Larkin



"What are days for?
Days are where we live.
They come, they wake us.
Time and time over.
They are to be happy in:

Where can we live but days?"

ILLUSTRATION: One Sentence Stories

 
 

Dorothy Parker is proof that a good story doesn’t always need to be hundreds of pages long.
Some of hers are even told in a single sentence, like the one I’ve illustrated above:
“The Phone Call”

UPDATE: Shop Still Under Construction





Unfortunately it’s taking us a little longer than expected to launch the Elisabetha&Adam-Store – mostly, because Gwenda is still on her year-long journey around the world and while great things and projects have developed from this so far, it has also, on the other hand, made our designing process a bit difficult to organize.

Nevertheless, we’re super busy working on getting it done and once we don’t have to deal with the challenging back and forth between time-zones and continents anymore, the Shop will be up and running – probably in a few weeks from now, if all goes well.
Since this is a project truly close to our hearts and we’ve already poured a great amount of time, passion and work into it, we want to make sure, everything’s perfect and well thought-through before we put it out there. So hopefully, it’ll be worth the wait
J


Until then, thank you for your patience and sticking with us.
Stay tuned for more information coming soon.

SHORT STORIES: A Travelers' Love II

The Last Round

I saw you.
Through the thick air in the small
bar around the Corner,
making it hard to breath.

You saw me.
Through the smoke of the
glowing cigarette,
between my fingers.

Just a short look
between two pairs
of searching eyes.
A question forming
behind our silent lips.

The sudden voice
of the waitress, calling for
'The Last Round'.

One more time,
thinking
'What if?'

Then we went back down the rabbit hole
of our skull-shaped wonderland.
