A little spark
From a holiday
Nearing
To its end
A bubble
To walk
On water
To pretend…

A memorable day in Relaxing sea wave sounds #2


This time I managed this video on my own about 95 %! It’s the sea as it was today, windy, cloudy and sunny. I hope you like the music choice. It’s less shaky this time round but I still could use a tripod (it’s on my list).
Enjoy it and let me know if you have any suggestions for further improvement… there’s always room for that!
Thanks to all for your constant support, it’s thoroughly appreciated 🙂

This is my second video on You tube. I’ve tried to make some improvements and hope you’ll enjoy the relaxing sounds of the waves accompanied by music. Positive feedback is always welcome!

Yasuni – Invest on the Planet


Playamart-zeebra designs reblogged this and I found this video fascinating in the sense that people can make such a huge difference to the preservation of our planet.
We tend to think we are victims of a system that decides about “progress” and we have to go blindly towards a catastrophic future our kids will be having to witness, live, suffer and accommodate with…
But there’s much more to it when you look at the bigger picture. This video is a message of hope, love, strength, perseverance, belief and appreciation for the miraculous rebirth we witness of our planet as we wake up every day to it.
It’s a nice way to spend 2.34 seconds 🙂
Enjoy!

A memorable day in Sounds of Nature – Waterfall #1 (my first Youtube video ever!)


A memorable day in Sounds of Nature – Waterfall # 1

Published on Aug 18, 2013
I’m proud to present to you my first video on Youtube. I hope you like it. POSITIVE feedback is always welcome. Enjoy!

I can’t believe it…I have finally published my first video on nature in You tube. Let’s be honest, I would’ve never managed it on my own. My very dear ones told me how it’s done 🙂
It is not yet thee perfect version (those two side bars are there because I held my camera the wrong way!) but I’m very happy with the result. The music comes from one of my favorites… Enya, which is soothing and a good counterbalance to the strong powerful cascading stream.
Water and its sounds have always fascinated me in the sense that it has such a soothing influence on the human behavior.
I hope you like and enjoy those short 6 minutes. Let me know what you think of it.

P.s I had to change the music as it was copyright and as a result we can’t hear the sounds of the waterfall which is very disappointing but there’s not much to be done besides being careful next time!
I had the same problem with photos in the beginnings of my blog and somehow I did not connect it this time to music, hence my mistake. I’ll have to find out how to download music the right way 🙂

Unique Birth: Gorilla Twins 2013-06-13 Burgers’ Zoo Arnhem, The Netherlands


This is three minutes and nineteen seconds of sheer tenderness coming from one of the strongest animal on our planet. What is fascinating is those two extremes coming from, what seems like a block of concrete on a first encounter.

Enjoy it and let me know what your impressions were 🙂

2013-06-13 In the Dutch Burgers’ Zoo in Arnhem a unique moment took place, N’Gayla a gorilla in captivety gave birth to twins. It was known that the 20-year-old female gorilla was pregnant, but not that she was expecting two baby gorillas, furthermore special was that she was expected to give birth later this summer. Main Carer Wilco Limpers: “At first I didn’t notice that she was having a twin birth, I was filming N’Gayla how she licked her young born clean and ate the afterbirth, then N’Gayla suddenly grabbed something out from the straw:.. another gorillaaaaaa! I really did not know what I saw.A twin birth from gorillas is only occurs about once or twice every ten years in European zoos. “Gorillas usually get only one young at a time. Twin births are for them rarer than in humans. Mother and babies are doing well and the newborns have been seen drinking. Mother N’Gayla literally has her hands full with her ​​little ones.
Gorillatweeling verrast Burgers’ zoo. In de Arnhemse dierentuin Burgers’ Zoo is in de nacht van woensdag op donderdag 12/13 juni 2013 een gorillatweeling geboren. Moeder is N’Gayla , vader is Bauwi. Een unicum, aldus Burgers’, omdat bij gorilla’s tweelinggeboortes nog zeldzamer zijn dan bij mensen.In dierentuinen komt zo’n geboorte één à twee keer per 10 jaar voor. Van moeder N’Gayla was bekend dat ze drachtig was, maar de geboorte werd pas later in de zomer verwacht. De verrassing was groot voor de verzorgers toen ze donderdagochtend eerst één en later een tweede jong zagen. Moeder en jongen maken ‘t goed en zijn inmiddels buiten te zien. Volgens Burgers’ zijn het een mannetje en een vrouwtje. Music: My First Love by Ernesto Cortazar.

The world of silence
————————

Alone to be yourself
Through your eyes
Not another’s
Befriending
Harmony to
Whom you owe
Nothing, everything…

You pick conticent
Plenitude that
Obliges nothing…
Words unsettles
Whereas silence…
In blessedness
In its right measure

Nothing better for
Unadulterated repose.
Alone for the world tires…
Verbal duels, ambiguous
Phrases, complex minds,
Primeval instincts…
Wary, dominant,

Sometimes wild,
Sensitivity at skin level,
Applying pity in most
Unforeseen moments…
Very little for you who
Flees from all that.
Weary to the point…

Of taking refuge in
The World of silence.
