Thoughts running through my mind...

On blows of fate...
Life is full of experiences. 

Good and bad. 
I must allow myself to fathom out these painful feelings. 

Even if it means I have to hit rock bottom first before I can rise up again.

On how important it is to accept things...
It is important to accept not only the blows of fate but all the other „little“ obstacles life throws our way. 

Any day something can happen that will change our life forever and nothing will be as it was.  

We have to accept the „never again“.  

On getting older...
I admire and respect older people because a lifetime of experiences shines out of their eyes. 

I don‘t think it is a shame to get old, it is simply another stage in our life.

 It is a privilege to reach an old age.  

On balance in life...
I think life is all about balance. 

We should avoid extremes. 

Better to sit back and let things happen, calmly contemplating their impact.  

For life‘s balance, there has to be laughter as well as tears. 

On my emotions....
When they come, I try to face up to them. 

I write. 

Writing always helps. 

Putting my fears into words helps getting a grip on them, 

putting them into perspective 

until I am no longer paralyzed by  „what ifs“.

Easter Sunday...

 Easter Sunday...

early morning walk; blue skies; sunshine; bells ringing; quiet and peace; family lunch; homemade marble cake with cream; another walk through town; savoring the moment!

Review: S08.E15 - Kill Screen

I liked this episode. It wasn‘t a terribly original plot/case and it was pretty predictable who the killer was, but it was fun to watch anyway.

Pink Wednesday....

Feeling pink today... 

Just one of these days when everything falls into place; when you get up feeling rested and well; when the scale says you've lost two pounds w/o even trying; when a stranger smiles at you; when you have an appointment at the hair salon and feel pretty and attractive while browsing through the April issue of the VOGUE; when not even the gray, wet April weather can dampen your mood.

Just....feeling pink!
clock wise: pictures 1, 4,6 = screen shots of April issue Vogue.
picture 5, Barbara Palvin for Vogue
picture 8, Claudia Schiffer for GUESS campain, (brand's 30th bd)

and just because this "Louis Vuitton" ad was too gorgeous for words... take another look!

First Almond Blossoms

Nothing says Spring to me more than the beautiful sight of the first almond blossoms.
