They Met Above The Tallest Fir In The Forest

They met above the tallest fir in the forest.

The encouragement that I’ve received from you wonderful people who read my blog has helped to spur me on today. It’s been an extremely challenging 1st of January. Emotions that I thought I’d buried, resurfaced and I didn’t know how to push them back down. I found myself whispering ‘fuck off, fuck off, fuck off’ to the voice in my head insisting I climb back into bed mid afternoon. I didn’t climb back into bed, by the way. I count that as a major victory. And I made this picture. Another victory, as it was this close to not existing.

  1. The picture is stunning, as I’ve probably said about your work before. So wonderfully winter magic-like. Your accomplishment from the first is wonderful as well.

  2. What are the origins of this depiction of someone floating over a fir tree? There is something like this at the end of The VVitch – seems like an ancient symbol.

    1. Sorry it’s taken a little while for me to reply to your comment. You know, I’m not really sure what the origins are. I am most definitely going to do some research and see what I can find though! In my case, this idea just randomly popped into my head and I thought ‘that’ll work!’ The end of The VVitch is one of my very favourite scenes of all time. I love that film! X

      1. Speaking of this movie…Instagram user sifjar_ just posted photos from The Witch Screenplay Book, which is sold on the A24 store. $60….hmmm, a little steep but this looks tempting. Never mind that I’ve long since run out of bookshelf space and books are stacked all over the floor!

  3. I’m sorry yesterday was hard for you, and I am very glad for your victories of not climbing back into bed and of making this picture. The picture intrigues me – I feel like there are a lot of possible stories within it…

    1. Hi Abi! Sorry it’s taken a few days to reply. ❤ I'm doing a bit better today…still feeling quite melancholic but I'm putting down plans and have hope for the coming week. Thank you so much for the feedback on the picture, I'm going to try and write a poem to go with it. 🙂 I hope you're well. X
