Interaction & influences

A lover of poetry, abstract and realistic painting, music, good writing, languages, Italy, photography, holistic therapies, natural lifestyle and fully living the moment.
My life is a continual journey where growth through fun is a priority. I appreciate humor (as French humorist Gad Elmaleh) yet love a good lecture in philosophy by a Master such as Michael Sandel in ” Justice: What’s the right thing to do? ”
I’m curious about everything, from plants to Alternative ways of thinking and living, such as the works of the Biologist Bruce Lipton or Dr. Wayne Dyer’s philosophies.

The sole purpose of this blog is to share wisdom, philosophies, natural recipes, art and photography with people who are receptive and aspire to a better life. Giving them the opportunity to appreciate its natural beauty.

I would like to add/announce the opening of my Instagram account LIFE_PAINTINGS & now a Facebook page: Life Paintings where I have all my work on photography & painting.
I would very much appreciate if you gave a look/follows/likes.

For orders please contact me at…

You can now buy my paintings on my new online shop too!

    ~ Sandy

    • Wow! I truly feel honored. I am going to look up the conditions. I have no idea how we nominate others and therefore have never ventured into nominating another. It seems very complicated to be able to put a link, give direction, notify and nominate further. Thanks! I appreciate the time it takes to organize all that.

  4. Love what you wrote. I’m with you. ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. Hi oa….(i don’t know what to call XD

    Thanks for following my blog! I think I’ll enjoy reading your blog as well. As you can see, we both like arts and poetry and it shows in both of our blogs. So, I’ll be following too. Haha. Since I don’t create abstract art much, reading your blog will be a breath of fresh air of creativity. lol. Thanks! ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. Nice to meet you! Thank you for following, greatly appreciated! Love, Linda

  7. Your Gravatar does not send people to your wordpress blog because there is a letter missing from your name. Instead of oawritings, it says oawiting (missing the r) I thought you would like to know so the world can find you!

  8. I just surfed in, purely by accident and read some of your stories. Loved the picture of the Lioness of course and The Cove. We are all travaille hard to make a bonne vie! Please forgive my terrible French,,,I was not a good student in this class….but I love using the words I do remember!

    I too lose myself in my creative endeavors hoping my creations will speak loudly enough to be understood and recognized for their “genius”. The creativity I have discovered on the internet reveals skills beyond my level, yet I still hope. Creating is a wonderful, peaceful place. Writing, too.

    Write, on!

    The Lioness

    • Indeed, we do have true professionals in the blogging world. I want to nevertheless specify that in the article ” in the act of writing ” I was actually using a humoristic tone, I did not for a moment believe with all the brilliant writers out there, that I could competeโ€ฆ I thank you for taking your time to share and comment, I appreciate it ๐Ÿ™‚

  9. You’ve worked hard developing your blogging community and I love how you bring happiness to all those around you. Your art and writings give me much joy every morning. I’ve nominated you for the Shine On Award. Congratulations, please see the details here

  10. it is a pleasure to meet you! looking forward to reading more

  12. Hello and Many thanks for following Dreamwalker’s Sanctuary.. I am just catching up on my new followers… You have much talent both in your writing and your art work..
    You have created a lovely blog site here..

  13. Wonderful blog! Thank you for signing up to follow my blog! I hope that you will enjoy my posts! – B

  14. What an abundant list of interests! Thanks for following my blog this week.

  15. Thanks so much for visiting my blog and liking my posts! I appreciate it very much. I’ve enjoyed my visit here and look forward to following your posts. ๐Ÿ˜€

  16. Hi oa, Thank you for following my photography blog. Hope you enjoy. Love what you’re doing here. Will look forward to seeing more.

  17. Thanks for the recent visit to (and follow of) my blog. It brought me here and I’ve been enjoying the eclectic set of posts.

    I took particular note of the video of Big Sur that you posted a couple of weeks ago. I’ve been to that specific location, once. McWay Falls is located within Julia Pfeiffer Burns State Park, but there’s very limited access to views of the waterfall and the entire cove. The video provides an entirely different perspective. I was at this location just once, roughly 15 years ago, when I was still in the developmental stages of becoming serious about photography. I do hope to go back one day in attempt to do the place visual justice–something I completely failed to do the first time around.

    • Wow! Thank you so much for all that information ๐Ÿ™‚ I do realize through your past experience and other videos on You tube how reality is very far from the views presented to us from professionals working on premises.
      It can be a big disappointment for tourists arriving to the idealistic spot they were prepared to see.
      Having said that, I continue having tremendous pleasure watching them and believe going there must be like getting a good place for New years fireworks… or you see the whole show in all its splendor or you don’t! It’s just tough luck ๐Ÿ™‚
      Thanks for sharing your knowledge, I appreciate the effort.

  18. Hi, thank you for visiting my blog. I am enjoying the beauty of your pics and paintings.

  19. It’s a pleasure meeting you.

  20. Beautiful place you have here! Thanks for visiting The Brass Rag. Come back and see us again soon.

  21. Thanks for visiting my blog, all your likes and your very generous comment about my work.
    Iโ€™m looking forward to perusing your blog more thoroughly, but I love what I see so far!!

  22. Thanks for dropping by Ironwoodwind. I’m curious as to how you found my post. Tags? Good fortune for me? I think so. Looking forward to exploring your blog.



  23. Hello and a big thank you for visiting my photography blog and liking so many ๐Ÿ™‚

  24. Thanks for visiting my blog and for liking my posts. You have a lovely blog. I managed to see only one painting, which is beautiful, the other posts of paintings are not available, or I just don’t know how to access the post. Your photos are beautiful too.

    • Thanks for visiting,commenting & liking too! If you noticed in the five last posts approx. I was encountering huge problems with having erased all my photos from my blog by inadvertence and am in the middle of restoring firstly the poetry section but now that you mentioned the paintings I’ll take that one on instead of the photography category which I previously thought of undertaking after having completed this one. You made me realize that the paintings come first. Thanks! I appreciate the incentive your feedback gave me ๐Ÿ™‚

      • My pleasure! I’m looking forward to seeing your restored painting section.

      • I’m glad you pointed out to me about the painting category. I made it a priority thanks to you & mentioned it in my update post. I’m getting at it hopefully tomorrow but it takes a while till it’s completed. After a year there’s quite an accumulation ๐Ÿ™‚

  25. Sorry to bother you, but I’m hopelessly technologically challenged, and every time I’ve come to your blog, I can never work out where to press the following button. What am I missing, please?

    • It makes me laugh when people say this because I’m not a technological person in the least!
      But this I do know just for having done it so many times for others.
      To my young experience, when I like a post a written sign comes up asking “do you want to follow?” something like that…and all you have to do is push on that. I hope that’s how my blog works too ๐Ÿ™‚ good luck & thanks!

  26. It gives me great pleasure in giving you The Sister of the World Blogger Award Love and Blessings
    Blessings Love and Hugs Sue xxxx

  27. Thank you for visiting and following my blog “Musings of a Horse Mom.” … It’s great that you’re able to express yourself in so many satisfying ways. I look forward to experiencing some of your work. … Nurture what you love. Dorothy ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Thanks! Wow, what an encouraging comment… I hope to go on working on my writing & painting passion among others.
      I really loved scrolling down your blog, horses & dolphins being my top favorites ๐Ÿ™‚
      Nurturing what we love is indeed the kiss of life.
      I appreciate the feedback!

  28. You have a great blog here, just continue the great style.
    Thanks for your like, really appreciated.

    Beautiful work!

  37. Thanks for the like. Enjoyed looking through your shots…also just did some Paris, , so especially enjoyed. Will be following. Thanks again.

  38. I have nominated you for The Community of Bloggers Award
    Of course you never have to accept an award, just know that you are appreciated!
    Lots of Love

  39. Thank you for visiting my blog and liking my posts. I very much appreciate your notice. I feel very new at this…Good for you all the recognition you’ve received. I wondered if those horses were Norwegian Fjords. Blessings on you this day…

    • I think they are but I can’t swear.
      I thoroughly enjoyed that outing, I believe that if you do what you love it’s bound to be felt through (the photography or writing) and I was grateful it did on this post… as we are never sure how the reader will react.
      Recognition is something that came very slowly by as I don’t have Facebook, Twitter etc…but it builds up along the way with a bit of patience.
      My blog is 1 yr and 8 months old and in the beginning I was totally at loss with the system as I’m not at all technologically inclined but along the months repetition was the best of schools and today to my utter surprise I feel quite at ease with it ( I have to admit that other bloggers very kindly offered to help too) but I had my share of mishaps so if there’s anything I can help you with I’d be very happy to oblige ๐Ÿ™‚
      Thanks for visiting too & commenting it is very much appreciated ๐Ÿ™‚
      Wishing you a very good week!

  40. Hi, nice to meet you! You have very interesting “colorful” blog! I like itโ€ฆand look forward to see new post! Have a nice weekend. Kamila

    • Thanks Kamila for following & commenting!
      In my before-last post I just let know my followers that I’m taking off to support my kids in exam times then, we fall into summer holidays so, I’m taking a break until then.
      I’m sorry for the inconvenience & look forward to your visits… meanwhile I’ve celebrated my 500th post which you can browse through at your leisure & would be honored if you do so ๐Ÿ™‚
      Wishing you a very pleasant summer!

  41. Thanks for coming to my blog and enjoying my posts… IAM sure we are going to enjoy each others journey… creating our hearts desires… Barbara

  42. wonderful blog, paintings, photos and musings, Thanks for visiting my blog and planting all the likes! ๐Ÿ™‚ blessings, Brad

  43. I also like Gad Elmaleh… ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Isn’t he amazing?! I find he touches the thoughts & subjects that preoccupies everyone’s mind, each one can find himself in his jokes.
      I think the greatness of an artist is to make people laugh at themselves & turn the sad or tragic into happiness.
      Thank you for scrolling down my blog, it’s very much appreciated ๐Ÿ™‚

  44. I pinned one of your pastel paintings, and quickly removed it after reading this! I so admire your work and respect your wishes concerning sharing it.

    • I am not familiar with the term “pin” but if someone re-blog’s a post with my link or mentions my blog & puts my link on theirs I’m OK with it, I just wouldn’t like my work to be taken for someone else s, it should be mentioned in the post & they should be able to click on the image with my link visible on it.
      I truly appreciate your honest attitude, it is the way I try to live on a daily basis.
      We could use more honesty around the world ๐Ÿ™‚
      So, go ahead & re-blog if you wish with the above directions, I’d appreciate that.
      I am trying to work myself up to an eventual exposition (with a lot of luck & divine intervention ๐Ÿ˜‰ )
      or maybe an online art selling facility so, a bit of publicity can only be a good thing!
      Thank you.

  45. Thank you for liking a blog post of mine! This lead me to your cool blog here!

  46. Beautiful work, very inspiring. One day I will return to my love of Art. Maybe when I retire.
