⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀【 Louisa May Alcott 】 (@louiisamayalcott)

[Hanahaki aesthetic]
They’re in my throat, it’s getting hard to breath
These flowers, these flowers
Corrupting my windpipe

Is this how
Is this how
Is this how you really feel?

You’re not happy…
Why did you not tell me
Hanahaki
Hanahaki
I’ll sprout flowers never seen

Do you want pink carnations
Cause your love is dead
But then again so will i be soon

Hanahaki 
Hanahaki
Why do you exist?
If only to bring misery to all of the rest

I am coughing flowers and the blame falls down on you
Why do you ignore me when you don’t know what to do?

They’re in my throat, it’s getting hard to see
Theses flowers, these flowers
Corrupting my body

Hanahaki

Why do you exist?
If only to bring misery to all of the rest

I've been on a bit of a classics kick the last few days and I've loved it!
.
Little Women is one of those books I felt I should read even though I wasn't keen on the idea of it. Thankfully I was pleasantly surprised. .
It shows us one year in the Marches life, focusing on sisters Jo, Beth, Amy and Margaret.
Like most people, I loved Jo. She's a bookworm but she also has a goddamn pet rat called Scrabbles. I am all for that rat appreciation!
It's charming and cosy and I can see why it's such a classic.
.
I had a couple of gripes though. It's quite heavy on the old religious symbolism. Actually not symbolism because Alcott straight up tells us to love god and trust him etc. So a little less would be nice.
Also at times, it's a bit idealistic. The girls will cheep in chorus saying "yes mother" and an experiment that sees them do no work but all play, backfires and they realise that doing chores is the best! I mean, they are all young girls. Would they really all hate having a break from work? It's all a bit twee at times
.
Mostly I really enjoyed it. I do have a question though!
My edition ended when they are all kids still as only a year goes by. Do some editions have the entire collection, e.g. Little Men?
Anyway. A lovely read! 3.5🌟

We all have our own life to pursue, our own kind of dream to be weaving, and we all have the power to make wishes come true, as long as we keep believing.

In my creative space today, working on a bespoke locket necklace with a beautiful quote from Little Women.

I first read Louisa May Alcott's novel back in my tweens, and this was a quote I loved very much in the film version.

Tag your sister to let her know how much you love her!

Day 9 #instagramworthy challenge: what would you regret not doing at the end of your life? *having not appreciated every single moment to the fullest.*
*I will never stop smelling the flowers, collecting rocks, communing w animals, photographing adventures, staying inspired, cherishing my parents/friends/partner, writing my thoughts, watching the clouds, being grateful, relishing opportunities, trying to live like the nature-loving social justice activist Henry David Thoreau whose Walden Pond, hometown of Concord, & final resting place I got to explore with my dad today*

I don't usually run 10Ks, but when I do, Louisa May Alcott is at the finish line to give me a high five and oblige for a selfie -- 6.34 miles @ 9:10/mile ❤️🏃🏻‍♀️ #orchardhouse10k #louisamayalcott #running #runnersofinstagram

Far away there in the sunshine are my highest aspirations. I may not reach them, but I can look up and see their beauty, believe in them, and try to follow where they lead. ~Louisa May Alcott~
