Matt. 6:34


My name is Elissa. I'm from California and I love Jesus, art, music and nature.



Anonymous asked: Where does the name of your duo come from?

Ok so we really like this band called Picture Atlantic, and our favorite album of theirs involves a lot of Latin. So we wanted something in Latin. And we wanted something that represented the significance of California to us, because living in California has been very important in both of our lives. Hence the “result of” part, because if our families hadn’t moved here we would’ve never met. So we were like hey, let’s use the Latin name for “star” for the star on the California flag. And that’s where the “Stella” comes from. I hope that answers your question, dear anon!


Depression does not always mean
Beautiful girls shattering at the wrists
A glorified, heroic battle for your sanity
Or mothers that never got the chance to say good-bye

Sometimes depression means
Not getting out of bed for three days
Because your feet refuse to believe
That they will not shatter upon impact with the floor

Sometimes depression means
That summoning the willpower
To go downstairs and do the laundry
Is the most impressive thing you accomplish that week

Sometimes depression means
Lying on the floor staring at the ceiling for hours
Because you cannot convince your body
That it is capable of movement

Sometimes depression means
Not being able to write for weeks
Because the only words you have to offer the world
Are trapped and drowning and I swear to God I’m trying

Sometimes depression means
That every single bone in your body aches
But you have to keep going through the motions
Because you are not allowed to call in to work depressed

Sometimes depression means
Ignoring every phone call for an entire month
Because yes, they have the right number
But you’re not the person they’re looking for, not anymore

Regine Ramseier, a German artist, had the great idea to created a ‘Dandelion Ceiling.’ 2000 dandelion flowers were treated and sprayed with a gentle adhesive to fix them. The dandelions were then transported by car to a little white room where they were hung.

Holy moly

Mt Shasta from the backseat.

This was my exact view about 2 years back.  I was driving home from Sasquatch, it was 7am, my friend was asleep and Bon Iver was over the radio.  One of those life moments.

Last night I dreamed that you were playing guitar with me in my room but it got stressful and sad because people were trying to take you away

Bless that one person in every group that is like “keep going, I’m listening” and encourages you to finish your story even when everyone else is talking over you.
