a dreamer is one who can only find her way by moonlight, and her punishment is that she sees the dawn before the rest of the world... by 

~quote by Oscar Wilde.

im feeling slightly melancholy this morning….i dunno why….
but it probably explains why this image grabs me so much….

i love the way her hair is blowing in the breeze…….
if i can choose a magic power i want to be able to stop time…she is growing up too damn fast for my liking….
