  What I’ve been up to? I had a feeling that in the second half of last year things started slowing down a bit, especially how the time used to fly by. But then Christmas Holidays happened and went by so fast; I miss them so much. I immersed myself in peaceful moments, painting, reading, writing, praying, baking… The Christmas lights and scents. And with the sunny and warm weather, the endless walks in the forest. I just miss the Christmas time. And can’t believe it’s the end of January already. And because I took quite a prolonged time-off, naturally, a lot of work was waiting for me when I got back into the saddle, but having this beautiful sunny […]

  What I’ve been up to? Boy, have these past weeks been hectic; I’ve tried and managed to check all the “to do” plans for the first half of this month, all the work related tasks, preparation for the Holidays, so I can now finally just kick back and take a much needed break. Baking, listening to classical music, reading, paining, writing, long walks in my beloved forest. It is a magical time of the year. And joyful. Hopeful. And it’s a time when I miss her even more. The memories of us baking together. As much as it is painful, I, as always, every moment of my life, know God will fill me with joy, comfort and peace. As […]

What I’ve been up to? Enjoying the beautiful, sunny and very warm October – I can’t recall the last time October has been so beautiful, so enchanting! Being in short sleeves and walking barefoot on grass, in October? Yeah. So there have been many many walks in my beloved forest – the colors so beautiful, it made my heart sing and my soul clap. With the leaves falling off, I’ve had quite a lot of work around my country house, including cutting of the bushes, and there’s a lot more left – I am sure this rainy and gloomy weather will pass, eventually, so I can get back to work. There’s something so peaceful and tranquil working on your own […]

What I’ve been up to? Despite a lot of happenings in August, there was no Random Thoughts – as fleeting as Summer is, I had to take advantage of its every moment, and prioritize. There’s a time and place for everything, and every season has its charms – but it’s just something about Summer, sunshine, long days that makes me long for it every time I think of how quickly it will pass. Yes, Autumn (too) is beautiful, and chasing sunshine makes for a realization to not take anything for granted. As I look around my vast land around my country house and see all the work that needs to be done in these cooler Autumn months – I can’t […]

What I’ve been up to? The beautiful, sunny and very hot weather – it was time to take a few weeks off. To see places, to do stuff and – to do nothing. Feeling and maybe even being busy is not the same as being productive, and when you’re tired and had already accomplished much of what you’ve set out to do, it’s easy to take the time off. And everyone needs to unplug, to drift away, relax. This past few weeks, I’ve been doing quite a lot of reading and painting, and embarking on some other creative endeavors. It’s good for the mind and it’s good for the soul. Writing, another technique of introspection, is also important for me, […]
