Shouting on the rooftops!!! My photography category is RESTORED!!!

Celebration!!!

Today I feel like shouting off the rooftops, blowing them away!!! I cannot believe I did it!! It took me a whole week… long & intensive days of repetitive movements… But finally the photography category is RESTORED!

It has immensely improved, I would be proud & honored if you’d take the liberty to browse through and give me your impressions.

I kept promising & procrastinating, discouraging at the sheer amount of energy needed to correct my ignorance.
But a promise is a promise!

You all remember the shock and horror I felt when I had thought I was making order in my media “cleaning” it up
only to realize that all the photos on my blog had vanished…

I am now halfway through so, I still need your patience:)
I am hardly reading any posts as all my time goes to the restoration but it’ll get done and life will resume its course after that.

I am looking forward to it 🙂

P.s
The photo was taken on new year as a first time experience on firework-photography. It took me about two hundred shots to select a few, it was a thrilling & creative experience which I’ll share with you as soon as I’m done with this!

That one chance we have at living… (climbing the stairs of our life)

Climbing my way up…

I always thought my happiness was dependent on a disciplined life and misery on a chaotic food plan.

I believed my behavior was the culprit of my inner-hell.

But a few weeks of frantic bingeing triggered off by some stone in the way of my life made me realize that yes, a clean organic measured food plan contributes to a clear mind, a certain level of stability, an awareness and ability of absorbing the NOW fully but it is not responsible for life and the realities surrounding it.
It does not answer for your reactions towards it and it is surely not the coordinator of your inner.

The inner is your sacred place, you are the only one owning it, it is the birthplace of bliss that you will help grow, the stillness that you will lovingly water and observe carefully as each leaf appears, each twig added, it is you that makes it happen, it is where it all begins…

As you nourish it, its heartbeat will get stronger, it will take all the place, pulsate and vibrate, let itself be cradled in the niche of your soul.

An amazing blogger http://soberidentity.com/ told me not too long ago “that whatever I do toward my food does not change my true self” which I understood to be my soul.

Its health is dependent on my choices, true (whether I nourish that bliss and stillness or not) but it will never change size 😉 nor betray me in any other way. It is intact, unblemished and most importantly it is and will always be what defines me.

True peace and happiness is WITHIN independent of exterior consequences. One can be a total living misery with complete abstinence. Mind-torture is a frame, a free lodger, a habit gone wrong, it is especially badly-wired energy. Our choices are to direct it.

The way is not simple but it is easy as long as we are determined to make a difference in this ONE chance we have at LIVING.

How Do YOU Define Yourself Lizzie Velasquez at TEDxAustinWomen


This is a video you won’t forget so soon 🙂
13.10 mn of bravery, wisdom & a lot more each one of you is going to take in his/her own way.
I have learnt from it that the body is a shell if without a soul & hers shines through the darkest of tunnels as bright as can be… it is full of humor, upbeat, ambitious so deep & wise you can’t go any further (Through Media’s unique emphasis on it we just got sidetrack for a bit too long 🙂 )

There is so much to learn, to take with, remember where our priorities should be if we want to reach our full potential & never doubt in each & everyone of us when we think we don’t mean that much…

We all have a place on this planet.

n a time when beauty is defined by supermodels, success is defined by wealth, and fame is deified by how many followers you have on social media, Lizzie Velasquez asks the question how do you define yourself? Once labeled, “The Worlds Ugliest Woman,” Lizzie decided to turn things around and create her own definitions of what she defines as beauty and happiness.

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in local community. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.*

The rose caught in a rainfall

©copyright2014owpp

I have realized that even though I have plucked up my courage tonight & started to restore my photography section (which is much harder than the two previous ones I did as each post can contain up to nine photos!) I still need to share with all of my faithful followers, my work… one of them photography and offer you this rose offered to me 😉 and caught in a rainfall (which I’m quite proud of :)) as a tribute to the very talented photographers I follow out there & from whom I learn everyday a bit more.

I am taking this opportunity to remind you how amazing you all are & how much I’ve benefited from your blogs since I opened mine a year & four months ago should it be in my writing, poetry, painting, gardening or photography.

Thank you!

Nomination for the Versatile blogger’s award!


versatile-blogger-wordpress

I was kindly nominated for the versatile blogger’s award as a big new year’s surprise by http://earth-rider.com/2013/12/27/the-season-of-giving-awards/ and even though I had taken the resolution to restore all my vanished photos back into my blog instead of forever procrastinating I decided that such generosity shouldn’t go unnoticed & took upon myself to immediately get to it before getting on with the restoration…
So, my excuses go to all my bloggers for not following, liking your posts. I hope you forgive me & understand the sacrifices needed for me to update my blog.

A blog is not one of quality when the photography or the natural recipes categories are void of photos…

Here are the rules I got from http://versatilebloggeraward.wordpress.com/vba-rules/

Thank the person who gave you this award. That’s common courtesy.
Include a link to their blog. That’s also common courtesy — if you can figure out how to do it.
Next, select 15 blogs/bloggers that you’ve recently discovered or follow regularly. ( I would add, pick blogs or bloggers that are excellent!)
Nominate those 15 bloggers for the Versatile Blogger Award — you might include a link to this site.
Finally, tell the person who nominated you 7 things about yourself.

So, here goes, the fifteen bloggers I nominated are …

http://clanmother.com/

I know that not all of these bloggers will have the time to accept this award as it is quite time consuming nevertheless they are each and everyone in its own right a blogger of tremendous high quality which merits to be recognized by publishing its link in this blog.
This will be my tribute to their achievement in the domain of their endeavor 🙂

Finally I’ll include as it’s required seven things about myself.

1. I’m mad about the sea & anything connected to nature
2. One of my dreams is to go off-grid & live off the fruits of my labor
3. I dream (once again 😉 ) of a kind gentle honest world
4. I’d like to secure a safe future for my grandchildren
5. Surrounded in an atmosphere of artists is where I’d love to thrive in
6. It would be nice if my weaknesses would get weaker 😉
7. I’d love one day to have the privilege to meet a personality (again, in the domain of art)

All my thanks again for this award!
