Mariell Amelie and being an only child
I have two siblings and my husband has one. Thomas has no siblings, and we're thinking about keeping it that way. We're also thinking about having another child in a few years. Our minds are not made up, but I have become curious about only children. There are a lot of myths surrounding them that I don't buy into, but I also wonder -- do they get lonely? Or do they just become the kind of people who are comfortable being alone? There's a big difference between loneliness and reveling in a relationship with one's self.
Anyway, the photographer Mariell Amelie is an only child and her self portraits are so full of beautiful isolation. Check her out here.
