Stef+Naomi Photography: Sunbeams and You

26 Feb 20140226-170334.jpg

Flowers in her hair,
Eyes closed.
Endless dreams,
Mind wandering.
Alive,
And truthful…

She dreams.

I couldn’t stop myself from picking up my charcoal pencils and drawing the night away.

This is what I ended up with.

Then & Always

22 Apr

I dreamt about you again.

I called out your name,

begging you to stay.

I felt defeated, my screams unheard.

You left, you had to, and I on the floor

Tears falling, heart empty, had to face

Your absence yet again.

 

It’s always the same story.

I’m in trouble,

I see you,

I scream for you.

You seem so near,

But I can never have you back

Like I used to,

I could never hug you,

I could never talk to you…

 

You are gone.

 

You come in my dreams now,

Like you did when you were around.

You’d walk into my room

And smile from ear to ear

Hello my dear Jamie,

Hello my dear child.

 

You were the kindest soul in my life,

The hero I have come to know.

 

The day you left us,

My world, our world, fell apart

 

It’s never been the same.

 

You were the kindest soul in my life,

The hero I have come to know.

 

You had the biggest heart.


I still think about you…

 

I love you, Lolo.

Then and always.

 

  

 

Travel Finds JCAF Bags: Thank You!

19 Apr

I’ve been getting messages about how my friends have stumbled upon our JCAF ladies in #Intramuros. 

Can’t say it enough, years ago I would never have imagined that I would be able to share my art, my passion, in this way.

Jayme (@travelfindsshop) and I had one goal: to share our love for both traveling and art with all of you. 

2 years, 4 collections.

Thank you for the continuous support and love you show for this passion project of ours. Let’s continue to support our local workforce (yes, these bags are handsewn in Cainta) and more importantly, let’s continue to spread the love for the art. 

A big thank you once again to all those who have been posting their adventures with our #TravelFindsJcafbags. I am eternally moved!

Tired of the hellos and goodbyes

And the in betweens…

Painting and Poem: Chaos

16 Jan IMG_7061

I felt him sneak into my life, like sunlight slowly invading the room on early mornings. But the sunset came, just like any other day…and the sun, and him, were gone before I knew it.

Painting and Poem: You’re Out There

29 Dec

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/c77/35298479/files/2014/12/img_5639.jpg

Painting and Poem: You’re Out There

I feel you’re out there,
Like a country I’ve long dreamed of visiting;
Of which, I’ve collected a thousand beautiful pictures;
Of which, I daydreamed of spending late afternoons, chasing sunsets,
And evenings, watching stars.

I feel you’re out there, somehow, somewhere,
Waiting, just waiting,
To be found.

Poetry and Painting: Nothing & Perfect Little Girl

27 Dec

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/c77/35298479/files/2014/12/img_5430.png
Painting: Perfect Little Girl

Nothing

Transient feelings.
Explosive, real.
Beautiful,
Ephemeral.

You, me,
Us.

One after another,
A rampage;
In search of you,
The feeling,
The taste,
Of you, me,
Us.

Nothing feels the
same.
Nothing tastes as
good
No one can be
you.

Transient feelings,
Floating, searching,
Looking, waiting…

That night, those months,
Your words, my words,
Love.

Transient feelings,
Unreal, staged, empty,
A rampage,
One after the other…
In search of you.
