Hi, I'm laura. I love reading books, the cure, haruki murakami and tea.

here's where I'm most active these days:
▲ instagram: galaxiesanddust

..but you can also check out these:
▲ personal website / portfolio:
▲ my goodreads profile
▲ galaxies&dust photography on facebook
▲ my redbubble portfolio

One day a long time from now you'll cease to care anymore whom you please or what anybody has to say about you. That's when you'll finally produce the work you're capable of.

― J.D. Salinger


Swirl of Light.
This is a gentle reminder to myself that things aren't always as dark and scary as they seem.
That everything is temporary.
Even the darkest of nights and those mornings, waking up with a lump in your throat and a burning chest, and not the slightest idea how to make it through another day. 
Everything is temporary. 

If you can, try to remember that it's mostly your own thoughts stopping you.
Stopping you from being alive and present and being the person you really want to be.

That one person who loves without boundaries or reason,
knowing deep inside that the only purpose of life is to be truly alive and compassionate to others - and yourself - in every single moment. 

Although it is embarrassing and painful, it is very healing to stop hiding from yourself.

Pema Chödrön

feel free to use this texture, I am happy to share. 
of course it would be great to see what you've created, so please notify me if you use it on any deviantART submission. 
thanks a lot!

Hello my dearest friends and followers, 

for some reason I've been keeping silent about my new, own! website for several weeks, probably because I didn't feel it was ready to be presented yet. Sure, there's always room for improvement and I could go on working on this little site for years, but then again: I really have to move on to some more important projects. Now. 

So, what the hell:

Of course, I'm still not completely happy with it, and I'm absolutely ashamed about my recent lack of activity concerning photography itself. I mean, I do love to take pictures, but I always feel so obliged to bowl down other things first (work, university, university..). However, I neither plan a career in that area, nor am I making any money with it.. just like building this website, I'm photographing only for the value of the experience itself - whenever I can. So I guess, it's alright?

Anyway.. thanks for your support. :heart:
I'm very thankful and happy about ever comment or favorite and it's really nice to see that so many people find my textures useful. You guys are creating wonderful works of art, I can only bow my head.

Best wishes to all of you!
