Rainy days

Rainy days have finally started, reminding us again that in one week it is actually December. Autumn is gradually loosing its significance, as we seem to be moving from summer to winter and then to summer again, completely skipping fall and spring time. At least here in the big city there is no such thing as…

Some thoughts on self doubt.

A wise woman once said to me “Change is a law of nature, but fortunately humans have the ability to re-adjust”. I often ask myself what is right and what is wrong. If I am a good person or a bad one. If I am too little or too much for each occasion. How my worth…

Those early mornings

There is a particular time early in the morning that time moves slower. It is unfortunate that most of us don’t have the time (ironic) to feel those moments, the smells and chill and early dew. Everything moves in-between the seconds then and there is plenty of time to reflect and slowly prepare your mind…

Thoughts by the fireplace…

Humidity has made its appearance this afternoon, although it is a gorgeous sunny November that actually feels like April. Sitting by the fireplace, just staring at the fire can make you think a little more deeply than usual and this is what is happening for me right now. I enjoy these moments with a cup…

What slow living means (to me)

I thought I should write a few things about this thing called “slow living” and how I perceive it as an idea and lifestyle. First of all, there is no “rule” board or specific regulations that you must follow, anyone can translate it the way they want. It is a broad idea, that first started…

Wondering aloud

When life gives you lemons…

There are some days that are just happy days. Nothing special happening. Just calm, relaxing, stress free, usually sunny, happy days. I love when this happens. When you wake up in the morning with lemon-pie cravings and an Illy espresso to go with it. These days also tend to run fast and the evening comes…

Freedom

   The island didn’t always use to be a blessing for me. Well, blessing may be a little too strong of a word to use for such a thing, but in a way, it is. Now it is the place I get my freedom, but I used to hate coming here. Everything was surrounded by…

Calm feelings

    It is a mind blowing game, reality. An ever changing, constantly flowing river that we are in, showing its calm sides and its rough, wild streams, some small or large waterfalls that either end up on quiet lakes or take us further away to more rough streams. Sometimes we get washed ashore for a…
