Dear Feather Duvet,
Thank you for no longer kick starting Q’s allergies. You’re my favourite duvet to sleep under and I’m so glad that I don’t have to choose between you and my husband – it wouldn’t have been an easy pick.
We’ve come a long way, Télégramme and I. From issue one, with it’s scrappy layout and terrible fonts to issue six, with it’s sunny yellow theme and (I think) clean, elegant design.
Issue six featured five fantastic photographers: Joe St Pierre, Fabrizio Mingarelli, Tuane Eggers, Irina Munteanu and Roslyn Julia :) It also featured themes: Golden Hour, Open Space and The Sea. If issue four was the concrete issue (all stark lines and empty buildings) and issue five was focused on people then issue six is without a doubt a celebration of nature.
It’s a labour of love to work on Télégramme, something I’ve made no bones about in the past. But I do it because I love it and I’m so happy that people seem to enjoy it.
If you like photography, especially 35mm photography then I urge you to follow the Télégramme magazine blog (when you’re done reading the latest issue, of course). I don’t update it as often as I’d like, but it has more of the same things you’d find in the magazine, so is worth checking out if photos are your thing.
There’s a mailing list now too, so if you’d like to know when the next issue is out then all you have to do is sign up here.
Phew. I’ve already started work on the next issue (which is going to be lilac, fancy) which makes a change from taking five months off and then rushing it in the last three weeks. Ha!
In November I set 5 goals for myself. I’ve been finding myself constantly swimming uphill lately – forever with a large list of things I “must make time for” but never actually seem to manage to. So I wrote myself a small list, of things I felt should be a priority for me.
I managed to tick off four of those five things (and I only missed the last item “go on 5 walks” by one walk, so that’s not so bad), so I’ve decided to carry it on for December.
I’ve set up a page for my monthly goals, so if you want to see how I’m doing you can check in here at any time, I’ll keep it updated as I tick things off.
Does anyone else find that they’re much more productive when they’re working to a list? I know some people find them a little oppressive but I always find it super useful :)
*I originally had this as ‘swim 5 times’ before realising that the pool we use closes on the 21st of December for the holidays. Oops!
(I’m aware that I’m midway through December already, I meant to post this earlier but didn’t make the time. The irony is not lost on me).
