Celebration


_20170912_100223

Hi everyone!
I couldn’t believe five whole years have gone by since I started this blog.
Forgive my absence.
Lately I have been having computer issues and couldn’t keep you updated with my work, the exhibition, my photography…
But I promise to start posting again as soon as it’s all fixed.
Only then will I feel entitled to fully celebrate this milestone 🙂
Best of luck to all my faithful followers and visitors and best wishes for a safe and warm winter!

Time to celebrate 1st year blog anniversary!

Wow! One year already! It was a year filled with… well, no words can describe the amount I’ve learned, grown and received from all my fellow bloggers.
There’s a tremendous amount of appreciation I’d like to express to everyone who took an interest in my blog, took their time (which is precious indeed) to like and especially comment (that takes even longer:)) without all that positive feedback I don’t know if I would’ve had the tenacity it provided to try more & better…
Thank you Thank you Thank you! The pictures posted here under are for you all.

Hi everyone!

I am trying hard to keep away from posting but couldn’t resist sharing this last drawing inspired by the long warm days ending off in magical scenery…

Enjoy the next half of this month, it goes quicker than we think 🙂

Taking time and limiting my posts

Summer is here full swing and I am going to take time with my family. I’ll be going on liking and reading your post which I always enjoy… They give me time to learn, ponder and collect a load of useful information.

I am thankful and very grateful to have found such a wonderful bunch of creative bloggers!
I will still post but only when it won’t take me away from my family.

Thanks and enjoy the sunshine!

Grace, beauty & raw power…

A few years ago
On my birthday
Was offered to
Me,the privilege
To watch, for the
First time in my
Life a polo
Game that we
Accidentally fell

Upon on a day’s
Out at the beach.
Horses and dolphins
Being my favorites,
I could not resist
The urge to capture
Their grace and beauty
All encapsulated in one
Mass of raw power…

P.s
Having said that, I prefer
Seeing them in their natural
Habitat 🙂

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.

Perfect imperfect flower
Radiant in uniqueness
Glowing in strength
You are more beautiful
Than all the rows
Of fluffy petals
For you stand out
And catch the eye
Of the passerby.

Good times, what a blessing! Nov. 2012 ( oa essay )

This essay was coming out of the low moments as a result of doing what I have most pleasure in doing. Writing and painting and sharing it on the blog. Music and photography will have to wait until I start feeling more comfortable with those .

Good times
————-

Does it occur to us that sometimes our writings have a tremendous amount of despair or self-abuse described?
Writing is for everyone liberating. It is the first thing that comes to our mind when hurt gnaws at us. At the end of the page we feel cleansed.
But could we focus for once on the times rays of rationality beam through? The days we tuck in fourteen hours of work, feel tired but so alive?
Get so absorbed in our task that we forget about food and eat solely for the physical energy. What a blessing, what a truce! So much easier than the fight.
What about the enthusiasm, the love and joy we spread around, the closeness to our cherished ones and the protective wings we encircle them with, the peace felt, by doing small and seemingly insignificant tasks that feel grand to us?
Small is sometimes big.
Is that not a far brighter subject?
The saying goes “without obscurity we would not see the light“
Appreciation comes from the lack of… Had we not gone without in the past, how could we know what is here now?

This essay is dedicated to all those in recovery. To a world of people who have the courage and audacity to face and work on their imperfections, which everyone has.

To them I bow and wish to give an apercu, a glimmer of what can be, with a bit of tenacity.

Be strong, do not bend to what you would call our darker moments yet, be flexible and undulate with the current, it will lead you to quiet sparkles, to serene bliss and undetected Nirvana.

Can we believe? I do.

That is the journey I took many years ago. Every year I believe I have found all the truth that exists and every year I am proved wrong. There is always some more…

There are many ways that lead to Rome. To a few, it will be wisdom, others, knowledge or experience, which is the best teacher of all, it will lead you to the light brought by comprehension… To that instant of clarity, the split second where it all fits…

The doors open and you walk in a state of…

Life is worth living for, the past trials were all worth it, for this inner-discovery. No loud trumpets, no explosive fireworks, just, THIS… NOW…

And that is all that matters.
