"Here is my secret. It is very simple: It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.."- Antoine de Saint Exupéry

It’s been a while…

It’s been a while since I’ve started this blog. To be more precise it’s been one year.
It has been quite an extraordinary experience for me. Quite a wild ride of the spirit. Though a very beautiful experience. I have connected in the blogosphere with beautiful minds and amazing souls and I have learned so many fantastic things…

—————————————————————————————————————————–
12 months of reflection have passed so here I  share with you 12 things you don’t know about me:

1. Back in my country  I have a University Degree in Librarionship and Archives. I have spent a long time in the State Arhives  and in many Libraries and I have been living among books since I’ve known myself.
2. I am a very strong empath. This can be in life both a blessing or a curse.
3.I have started studying English in school when I was 12. Still the theory is never enough, so few years later I started learning English on my own. I owe what I know now to a magazine that has changed my life. It’s fabulous and it’s called National Geographic. Every week I borrowed from the library and read the new magazines  with the dictionary by my side, translating every word I could not understand. I am forever grateful for the wonderful articles, the amazing photographs and the beauty of this experience. For a child born in the grey communism like me  this looked like and still is a miracle.

4.I believe in karma. I have seen it working in life . You can call it God’s hand or the law of compensation. All I know is that it works, we receive what we give and we pay for our debts and errors.
5 I am working on becoming a vegetarian. I can live without meat. But I will never be able to give up on cheese and milk, also because I was born in an area where the cheese is one of the best local things that are produced only to be sold all over the country.
6. I have a great respect for nature and all creatures, I do my best to never harm and to protect all living creatures.
7. I write poetry since I was about 13 years old. Most of my poems have got lost as they were written on whatever piece of paper I could find.
8. I love plants and wildlife in general. I grow myself few plants and they bloom often. I have grown in my life many many plants like cactus, Hybiscus, Rose, Clematis, Orchids, Chrysantemum, geranium, ficus , bonsai, cyclamen…
9. I absolutely adore children and animals, they are the most pure of souls.
10. I love art and I had a time when I did paint a lot.
11. I am addicted to music. rock, pop, classic, new and old

12. My first post on WP has been  “Rest my soul…”

 

And if tonight my soul may find her peace in sleep, and sink in good oblivion,
and in the morning wake like a new-opened flower
then I have been dipped again in God, and new-created.
~D.H. Lawrence

Though despite my need for inner peace my soul will always be fiery restless.

  2. Hi Ela. It’s extraordinary that you and I started this journey around the same time. I started mine the last day of February last year…but then I took three months off at the end. So good to be back and to be reading your posts and to be delighting in all of the sensuous, beautiful, provocative images you post. And most importantly, to be receiving your kind and generous words of wisdom. Congratulations on being you.
