corner view: the unveiling, true self




do you really want to open that can of worms? i'm a bundle of contradictions. always the big sister, still at a loss what to do. loving simple things and yet making things complicated. loving my friends and still managing to let them down (i really don' t mean to and wish it didn't happen). apart from that i'm a passionate photographer and writer, a dedicated reader, a mind-traveller, an observer, a cook, a carer, a ponderer and quite possibly the worst flirter ever.

i'm working on the tricky bits.

thanks to my friend jo, perfect and very patient travel companion, for taking the last two pictures here and the one featured in this post.

take a look at all the other corner views around the world via jane's spain daily!

p.s.: since cabrizette asked: i'm the one in the white dress with the red trim and the skeptical look... back in summer 1975 we were four kids, my two youngest brothers came along later.

My parents have photo albums full of photos like the first one. I always wonder how my mom could have put me in some of the outfits that she did.

Love, love, love the second photo.

I can so totally identify with loving simple things, but making things complicated... I have those tendencies too. Great post.

Jodi said...

Love your post. great family shot. great to see you!

Francesca said...

I'm sure a big sister at heart doesn't really let friends down ... as a second born of four, I can assure you that quite often is the rest of us expecting too much of our big sister! What do you write?

Elizabeth said...

What terrific photos -- and the words you write are simple and beautiful. Thanks for the corner view, for the unveiling --

I love the family photo! Good to (almost) see your face! :)
Aren't we all full of contradictions? That's what makes us interesting... or so I like to think!

MODsquad said...

That first picture is darling, and I loved how you described yourself. I'm pleased to meet you face-to-face. Great post!

travelingmama said...

I love your post and your photos! I feel very much the same. Perhaps it is all our contradictions that keep things interesting?

jane said...

i love this! your writing, your photos... fantastic! dos besos!

Cam said...

You could totally have been writing this about me! I'm the big sister, the bad flirter, etc! We are kindred spirits, I am sure of it! Are you a Sagittarius? If so, it must be some planetary alignment of some sorts! Ha! Nice to meet you!

Bonnie said...

liebe kristina, du bist mir so sympathisch :-) ich mag die art wie du die dinge siehst und beschreibst. für mich hast du etwas von amelie aus dem film. ich bin übrigens auch die älteste von vier kindern, und voller gegensätze...musste lächeln wegen dem flirten...kommt alles gut :-) wünsche dir einen wunderschönen tag*

I hear you, I'm a big sister too though it always seems like my little sister is so much better at organizing and knowing just what to do!!!!
