Jane Birkin reading book. Les Midis de Jane. Paris Vogue c.1970.
A fashion muse with her simple and feminine outfits in the 1970s, Jane Birkin has also given her name to an iconic Hermès handbag that perfectly suits the woman who once declared: ‘My mother was right: when you’ve got nothing left, all you can do is get into silk underwear and start reading Proust.’

The whole future lies in uncertainty: live immediately.

— Seneca

It’s messing people up, this social pressure to “Find your passion” and “Know what it is you want to do”. It’s perfectly fine to just live your moments fully, and marvel as many small and large passions, many small and large purposes enter and leave your life. For many people there is no realization, no bliss to follow, no discovery of your life’s purpose. This isn’t sad, it’s just the way things are. Stop trying to find the forest and just enjoy the trees.
