Life is easy. Why do we make it so hard? Jon Jandai at TEDxDoiSuthep


The last time I posted a video was in December. I select the material & post only what is in my eyes valuable information so, when I found this in the first comment of Theecograndmablogspot.com from “Cat” I had to share it with all of you.
It opened my eyes to a way of thinking that was always there had but had to be reminded of & had to be brought back into focus…
Enjoy it!

Nature’s display of perfection

This time round I tried to pique your curiosity by posting first the close up & wonder if you have recognized what it is.
I received this arrangement & was fascinated by the shape of that one… see next picture to understand 😉 so I took a few close-ups in the hope that you’ll identify it & enlighten me with its name.
Enjoy the next ones too!

P.S http://bloomlisa.com/ suggested below in the comment section that it might be a Waratah which I Googled for images & searched for info in Wikipedia.
Here’s what they say…

Waratah (Telopea) is an endemic, Australian genus of five species of large shrubs or small trees, native to the southeastern parts of Australia (New South Wales, Victoria and Tasmania). The most well-known species in this genus is Telopea speciosissima, which has bright red flowers and is the NSW state emblem. The waratah is a member of the plant family Proteaceae, a family of flowering plants distributed in the Southern Hemisphere. The key diagnostic feature of Proteaceae is the inflorescence, which is often very large, brightly coloured and showy, consisting of many small flowers densely packed into a compact head or spike. Species of waratah boast such inflorescences ranging from 6–15 cm in diameter with a basal ring of coloured bracts. The leaves are spirally arranged, 10–20 cm long and 2–3 cm broad with entire or serrated margins. The name waratah comes from the Eora Aboriginal people, the original inhabitants of the Sydney area.

Thank you Lisa for the effort, it’s very much appreciated 🙂

Andrea Bocelli “Vivere Live in Tuscany” HD720p (Modified) Lajatico, Italy 2007


For those who have followed me from the start know that I’m a big fan of Italy, its language, its culture and who could be a better ambassador for its country than Andrea Bocelli.
I just had a most memorable hour thirty two minutes which transported me to a magical Tuscany warm summer evening…
I don’t usually post long videos so as to save space but this called for an infringement to the rule 🙂

(2 Hour Nature Relaxation Video) A Day in Big Sur, California 1080p Relaxation Video Pure Nature


A quick post I could not resist of a video I just found, on mesmerizing sea waves in a spectacular nature spot this time, in California. (The last one was in the Carribeans)
It is one of the rare places of untouched and totally wild nature we have today… a pleasure to the eye.
I love the idea of being able to visit the world from our own home and be lulled into a state of blissful stupor 🙂

Enjoy it and take the time to indulge when things get too much for you or even when it doesn’t…. just for the fun of pampering yourself!

Celtic Music – Hero’s Journey-An exquisite piece- A must!


Thanks to bloggers I follow regularly who posted a few times Celtic music, I got to fall in love with some of the tunes.
As a coincidence I found today on you tube’s front page Celtic music which lead me to this most exquisite piece!
There’s something in the notes that just stirs your soul. One can just see their whole history unfolding in front of our eyes, it’s poignant, melancholic and terribly moving.

What do you think?

Another Celtic tune based on medieval times. I took inspiration from Skyrim but the song has nothing to do with the game itself, so once again don’t judge the song for the game or the picture, thank you 🙂

Thanks for all your support , rating the video,add to your favs and leaving a comment
is always appreciated and helps me a lot.

As always I recomend to listen with earphones since the sound quality on youtube is not the best.

The deep blue- English prose and acrylic painting “Le grand bleu”-February 2013


Le grand bleu Dec.2012 ©copyright2013owpp

Le grand bleu Dec.2012
©copyright2013owpp

The French title of my recent painting was inspired by a film I had seen quite a while back called Le grand bleu” which, if I find on you tube will only be able to be posted if it has English subtitles. It was very popular at the time. The only thing I would have changed, is its ending which is quite tragic. It is very poetic, artistic and mostly directed to lovers of nature.
This prose is a tribute to the ocean.

The deep blue
—————–

I see you
Crash in foam
Die on shores
Dissipate, vanish

To the deep blue
Abyss where lies
The mysteries of
Ancient history

Bury in the
Protective embrace
Of natures singularities
Whisper to its constancy

Roam through its jewels
Confer with the council
Breathe nimbus of glory
Oxygenate your inhabitation.

I look for boundaries
There are none…
Search for strain
Vanity or fame

But all I see is you
Crash on the shores
Scatter and evanesce

Embrace the deep blue.

To the quarrelsome, all our wishes -January 2013

All our wishes
—————

Beautiful person
Warm and sincere
Accomplishing
Your dreams

Fame, beauty, furs
Very little for you
Dear to all the hearts
Paroxysm of fervor

Your ardent request
To be reciprocated
Your hunger for more…
Adulation and worship

Your yearning became
Your weakness, zeal
Turned to hostility
Love broke to fragments

Limited, sectional, separatist
Erratic condemnation
Supercilious and arbitrary
All gone in a moment of conceit

What you thought was
A Bona fide to another
Was plain arrant disaster
To what was dear to our hearts

Yet, we wish you
With all humanity
To come back,
As compunctious as can be

With renewed awareness
Tolerant and receptive
Nonjudgmental
To its supreme

To fulfill your dreams
Not of fame or beauty
Your request, hunger
For what is dear to…

Our understanding.

92Y Video From The Poetry Center Archives: Ian Frazier And John McPhee


Gabi Coatsworth is the one who introduced me to
the discovery of John Mc Phee when she reblogged
an article about him which was fascinating by just
a small published piece of an article he wrote. It
Came from the Fairfield Writer’s blog.

Indirectly, with this interview, I got to Ian Frazier,
who is a charismatic person in his own right and I am
sure going to look up soon enough his works too.

I then, looked John Mc Phee up on You tube and couldn’t get
enough interviews of him…

He is witty, fascinating in the knowledge that pours
out from him and a huge talent in the literate world.

I hope you will enjoy this delightful time you’ll spend
watching 🙂

Last December, Ian Frazier and John McPhee—two of The New Yorker’s best “place-profilers”— appeared at 92nd Street Y’s Unterberg Poetry Center to read from their new books: Frazier’s Travels in Siberia and McPhee’s Silk Parachute.

After their readings, the two writers were interviewed by Mark Singer, and today’s video features an excerpt from that conversation, which ranges from the origins of their recent work to how they’ve influenced each other over the years.

Sweet worries 1991 ( Prose in its English original text! )


baby sleeping

This prose was written in the midst of child-rearing. The times we thought, would be frozen forever.
When we thought we’d stay in pampers and pureed foods till the end of our lifetime…

It is to be noted that it’s the one and only time I wrote a prose in English.

Sweet worries
————–

Hush little baby
Please, don’t drive me crazy
Hush little baby
Oh! Beautiful as a daisy

A gurgle
A yawn
A bottle
At dawn

A smile
To forgive
A hug
To forget

A yawn
At dawn
The bottle
Is warm

I cuddled
My bundle
And time
Was mine

Hush, little baby
Please, don’t drive me crazy!
Hush little baby
Oh! Beautiful as a daisy

I hope you enjoyed this little moment of innocence and softness.
