New beginnings! My whole blog is refreshed & gleaming…


I've reached the top! ©copyright2013owpp

I’ve reached the top!

This time I’ve reached the top & can shout properly out loud! What a relief but what a pleasure to know everything is glowing…
I restored the photos back in the last three categories, Writings, O.a writings, award and celebrations and even polished it further by editing a bit the first few articles which were as my first experiences far from agreeable to the eye 🙂
The whole setting of the articles has changed as I replaced inadequate photos which others more relevant to the subject & of far better quality, even the awards & celebrations category catches the eye by its vivid colors!

There is a big sense of satisfaction for having done the job properly…
This whole adventure got me thinking about growth & life’s journey. This blog has been a long process of stages.

1. I learn how to write, edit & post. I feel I’ve climbed the tip of a mountain
2. I visit other blogs & get advice how to add pictures & compare myself to Einstein for having succeeded
3. I sweat over the blog to add them until it looks brilliant & think this is the end of a grueling but satisfying job.
4. I erase them all again & when I realize my error I feel my blood pressure skyrocketing (I’ve never had problems with that)
5. Now I’m done and feel I can now focus on the million tasks awaiting me that have been postponed for this and wonder if it is the end of a roller-coasters & trying beginnings… I sincerely hope so!

Last but not least I want to thanks you all for your advice, my GB went from overloaded at 76% down to 5%! I am very grateful for your help & support throughout.
As new beginnings require, I am going to change a few things & hope I get your understanding here too 🙂

I am going to have to get on with my painting after focusing on my writing for a whole year which I’ve truly enjoyed & in order to have time for that I’ll have to reduce my “reader” time & liking to one day a week.

I’ll keep you updated with the results & go on posting in the various categories my blog owns.

My deep gratitude goes to all of you, my faithful followers…through thick & thin 🙂
Thank you!

Trees… The artistry of a master (Trees 1)

The next few posts will be dedicated to trees of all shape, in all places, tree-trunks, their purpose and our benefits by having them around us.
I have always been fascinated by the strength and energy that emanates from them and found my photo collection growing…
While selecting them for this project which I like to think of as a tribute to the trees around us, I realized Venice had hardly any trees (but many plants) something I hadn’t noticed on our short stay there.

A bulge, A rimple
The streaks of sap
The neat folds of a
Bird’s hiding place
Each one carved with
The accuracy and skill
Of a surgeon’s scalpel
With the artistry of…

A master.

Unusually striped jelly fish!

We were strolling peacefully
Along the beach, wind blowing
Sun hibernating… When this
Jelly Fish caught our attention.
We swiftly “stole” the moment
Into our pocket of treasures,
Locking it safely in our prized
Collection…

Of family history.

Carpets of flowers
Calling to its owner
Testimony of rebirth

The breeze of a new opening 10.4.2013

The breeze of a new opening
———————————-

I have a vision
Of bridges in a puzzle
Filling the gaps of modernization

The Chimera of all children
In total oblivion
Left to imagination.

I blow a bubble
To natures awakening
Imposing its codification

For the recovery of its creation.
I withal fear the reflection
Of man’s destruction

If it does not bow in resignation…
I suspect answers are in conception
For people with determination

Seemingly naïve to the zenith.
I have the certainty you and I
Are the concoction of a world

In ebullition the legacy of “evolution”
And the distinct impression
More and more live in wait

And listen for natures call
So we could witness the revival of
Its nucleus the breeze of…

A new opening.

Susan Cain: The power of introverts: TED TALKS: documentary,lecture,talk


This is a tribute to all the introverts… A reminder to appreciate the hidden genius that comes forth if you accept and love who you are 🙂
I accidentally got on this unique TED show (which I find quite fascinating thanks mostly to the bloggers I follow, who post quite regularly the popular ones.)
I hope you enjoy the depth and philosophical analysis of her speech.
Let me know the impressions it left on you 🙂

Susan Cain: The power of introverts: TED TALKS: documentary,lecture,talk

In a culture where being social and outgoing are prized above all else, it can be difficult, even shameful, to be an introvert. But, as Susan Cain argues in this passionate talk, introverts bring extraordinary talents and abilities to the world, and should be encouraged and celebrated.

Our world prizes extroverts — but Susan Cain makes a case for the quiet and contemplative.

Celebrating my new and organized Blog!!


Improvement, team work

Hi fellow readers,

I finally can shout out loud, my blog is nearly flawless, I say carefully nearly…Because there is no such thing as perfection, there will continually be room for improvement, but considering… it has come a long way.

There is an ” About ” and it has all been categorized, so it is much easier to pick the subject of your choosing.
I have to admit that with my computer skills I would have never been able to obtain those results ( or it might have taken much longer and many crises) and have eternal gratitude toward the patience my family excelled at during these ” trying ” times 🙂

P.S Does anyone have a clue of how to put a ” personal link ” on a Gravatar profile? ( Yes, it’s non ending! 🙂 )

Have a joyful day!
