Between past and future…

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/8a0/8774520/files/2014/12/img_0568.jpg

It may sound out of this world or surreal but it’s actually the best day to think about that, and to realize that it is really happening! It’s just between two minutes, between two short seconds, that the whole year is changed, from 2014 we go to 2015! Just like that! Everyone thinks about the past year, and makes new targets and goals for the next one: be a better person; work twice as hard; help others; say more often that you love your close ones, etc.
I bet that it will be quite a story/book if someone will gather all the wishes and New Years Resolutions! I think it will be really inspiring.
It’s a really powerful day today! It changes a lot not only in the calendar, but also in our lives. I bet that if someone will do a research about when people tend to be better and more thoughtful , it will be at the beginning of the new year!

Today, for me, it three times a better day! It’s is New Years Eve – a day that I celebrate as good as I can! It’s my birthday – I am a New Years baby ūüôā and it’s also the day that I started a new episode in my life- I have a wonderful relation with my special person that I love so much! ‚̧ԳŹ

It is a special day! And it should be one for everyone! It marks an ending and a new beginning, it makes you feel more powerful than ever! So let’s be happy on this day, and let’s enjoy every second of it!

Happy New Year!!

Read me some…

I know, that’s probably the most “cliche” thing to say, but today, ¬†I bumped in to an article on one of my favorite sites about art and life,¬†www.adme.ru, that reminded me about one of the most important joy of life – books.

read me some

Its not that I¬†didn’t know that already, I am sure that everyone knows that, but its the quote that it was¬†used caught my eye and mind. ¬†It was a quote by¬†Albert Einstein. He was asked once how we could make our children intelligent. His reply was both simple and wise. ‚ÄúIf you want your children to be intelligent,‚ÄĚ he said, ‚Äúread them fairy tales. If you want them to be more intelligent, read them more fairy tales” ¬†…Could it be as simple as that?

Than I remembered of myself as a kid, in a time and place that books were not quite everywhere. In a time and place that was still in between the big changes, not only for the country, but for the books as well : change of the alphabet, change of the ideology of what you can or can not read, change of the folk stories and ferry tales. But still, I was entertained every night by a lot of beautiful and mesmerizing fairy tales, told¬†by my loving and great father. (I remember so clear one of my favorite stories,¬† with a white horse and a brave little boy that unlike¬†his older brothers, in a very skillful way, overcome all the obstacles to get the girl he loved. I admit, my father was one hell of a story teller, even now he can tell it to you as if he is living it!) He did like to read, and because of that we had home a mini library, that I always invaded to look at the books. I didn’t understand most of it, they where in¬†Cyrillic¬†( Slavic alphabet). Still, I was inspired to read or discover. I knew I wanted more…

Then, came the school years, so many books, and frankly not to much will to read but more will to watch TV instead… I did my mandatory school readings, but that was all… until I found a book* ( or it found me…) – my first book that I read without anyone telling me to do so. It reminded me about that fantastic world that books together with¬†my imagination open up! So many books that I read, taught me so many things! Taught me how to believe and care, taught me how to trust and hope, taught to fight and to want more. Its funny that for a few good days I didn’t ¬†even remembered the name of that first book, though I remember every detail of its cover and the stories in it.¬†How weird is that? Maybe all I have to remember about it, is that it made me to want to read more and more, and to be thankful for that.

We should read more, we all should show to¬†our kids that besides TV¬†and phone¬†there is an other world out there, like my father showed me that I can do¬†get to my happy ending.¬†A¬†fascinating world that builds us from inside out, makes us more emphatic, and helps us escape the harshness of our real world, by teaching us how to act, how to be more intelligent or skillful, to overcome all of our obstacles in life… for a better life!

*the book is called “Crime and Science” by Jurgen Thorwald – a fascinated book that could replace any time all this crime TV Shows, and that inspired movies (ex. “The fugitive” with¬†Harrison¬†Ford)

Key West, FL (I)

Who doesnt Love to travel ? Most of all as an escape from an horrible winter? I had the chance to go in the most popular vacation place in the winter time- Key West, Florida. A bright sun, a great beach and blue ocean, an amazing breeze and a good company – the Key of a great vacation!!
During the month of February in Massachusetts it’s quite cold, but this year was terrible! The real North Pole:) I guess was a late Christmas wish of a kid to extend the winter of a little bit more, so that Santa can come again to his house….. And I love winter, but even for me was too much!
So, back to the main topic – I got an invitation to a wedding in Key West, FL. At first I thought that I won’t know anyone there, and it won’t be that fun… But who can refuse a week in Key West? … And on the other side, it gave me the opportunity to get to know the person I was going with.

20140505-155430.jpgFlorida, here I come !!!!
I had to do some packing and that was it!! It’s really hard to pack for summer when you are in winter… It was like I’ve forgot how warm or hot is summer… The weather forecast didn’t tell me much.. How to remember how hot is 80* when it’s been 20* for so long?!
Anyway, as I arrived in Orlando, I still had to go shopping. Yey!!!!!

Key West.

Everyone told me that the Keys are really nice, but as I got there I realized that they were wrong!!!! It was AMAZING !
It was my first in an exotic city/town, and I’m sure that it had its part in that AMAZING, but it was really gorgeous – perfect!
20140505-154348.jpgThe sun was right in the middle of the sky, shining like there is no tomorrow, the light breeze brought the beach and ocean a step closer to us, and the palm trees… Oh, the palm trees…. They really had coconut !! The more we got in to the city, the more the child inside me cried: coconut, coconut… ( and I don’t even like them so much)
After we settled in the little house we rented, we went to get more familiar with the city. We had a few hours until the dinner at the roof top of the hotel, with the wedding guests, so we walked around on the streets of Key West. They have small streets, fully packed with little souvenir shops and bars for different parts of the world: France, Cuba, Italy, Mexico. I will try to get more detailed about the specific and amazing things that key west is famous for in the next post, right now I will try to describe if I’ll can, the most perfect sunset that I have seen – on the roof top hotel .
It was like the sun was sinking in the ocean, splashing all over the sky red, orange and purple paint. My boyfriend told me that this is one of the things that Key West was famous for. This wasn’t just perfect, it was out of this world. While the ocean hugs the sun, your special person hugs you!
