A Book for Company

When it gets too hot around here, one of the nicest things to do is to just… stay home…

A good start of a good day with a good book!

We all want goodness in our life so let’s work for it and allow it to work for us!

Reading takes that first step but once you start it will carry you away to an imaginary universe!

You get lost in time, putting together in your mind whatever you’re reading!

Your mind turns into a screenplay!!

You “design” the narrator’s voice inside as you go along in the story!

Your face turns serious, then a smile, then you’re amazed… what’s next?!

Maybe one day we should all turn our life into a book… it would certainly provide enough material for a big one, I’m sure!

But until then, I delight with other people’s writing skills!!

With the ability they have to turn words into action, into living stories!!

Keep Walking

Isn’t this so true?

And I think it’s transversal to all “segments” of your life.

Do your bit, invest in what you believe and don’t easily give up.

However, if you keep chasing whatever doesn’t want to be near you… is it really worth chasing?

Each of us has their own vision and perception and so there’s no such a thing as an “objective reality”.

Each one of us has their own limits… the thing is what do we do once we reach them?

And it’s ok not knowing.

Sometimes you react, sometimes you just let it slide by. There’s no right or wrong.

So in doubt, be yourself.

Whoever appreciates you for who you are won’t allow you to slide by.

Happy 4th!!

Happy 4th US people!

A year ago I went to Governors Island for DJ Tiesto…

What a crowd, what a crazy atmosphere!!

For me, it was the most free spirited festival I’ve seen and I was surprised by it! It’s definitely a party!

People were free, wearing whichever clothes they wanted to (or not… 😁), partying in anyway they wanted to!

And sometimes you do need a bit of partying in between the pressure of work, life and everything else!

It’s a real unplugging experience!

Plus, an absolutely fabulous sunset with a view to Lady Liberty!

Give me music, friends and a drink and I’m a happy girl!! 🎀🎊🎉🕶🙌🏼👏🏼🎉🎊🎼🎼

The NYC posts: One loud moment in NYC

One of my most powerful memories of NYC was the WTC memorial…

In the loudest, most lively and vibrant city in the world, where you hear ambulances and police cars 24/7, this was the loudest silence I have ever heard.

You can only hear water streaming down the monument.

You look around and again you can’t help feeling overwhelmed for so many different reasons.

It’s bigger and stronger than everyone in there.

It’s impossible not to feel an indescribable amount of respect, sadness and “not understanding”.

I felt it and I’m just an outsider.

An outsider but a human being. And you’re not indifferent.

That monument is there for a reason.

It’s there for thousands of reasons.

The thousands of carved names are now a reminder of what used to be thousands of real Lives.

1 name = 1 Life.

Could be anyone of us.

Randomly any given day.

May God protect us all and may Humans protect each other.

The NYC posts: The first NYC highlight!

One of the highlights of my NYC solo trip was definitely the TOP OF THE ROCK!

The view from the top of Rockefeller Center was simply astonishing…

All of Manhattan right there before my eyes!

I stayed there from 5:30pm onwards because a friend of mine had told I couldn’t miss the sunset. She just forgot to mention the sunset would be around 9:30, summer time 🙄

So I waited…. and waited… until finally the sun decided to set… and these pictures try to capture the beauty of it but it’s impossible.

It’s breath taking (much like Dubai, you need to stop and stare to fully grasp your surroundings)!

The photos can’t show the colors, can’t show the way buildings reflect the light as the day turns into night!

It was simply a privilege to see.

It was magical!

I might post a few more (or a lot more!) pictures of my trip because there were so many important and meaningful moments that I’d love to share!!

Plus when you’re by yourself you have too much time to think…

I thought: “what am I doing here by myself?”

“Why did I come alone if this is something I wanted to share so badly with someone?”

And ultimately I found my own answer…

I’ve done it because Life provided me with the opportunity to do it at that time. Not before, not after. I knew I wouldn’t be able to do it later on. So I took it. And I thank the people who incentivized me going alone. I thank them for giving me that chance.

The NYC posts: New York, New York! 💙

Exactly one year ago I was in the middle of my trip to New York!

What an adventure!

I went solo on this one and I remember how terrified I was of traveling alone.

I felt it was something I had to do and I’ve done it.

At the end of the day, I felt safe and not lonely as there were so many tourists traveling on their own!

But what I remember the most was the feeling of overcoming a fear.

A feeling of independence, true freedom and empowerment which changed the way I saw myself.

I haven’t traveled by myself since then but I think I’d do it again.

Although I did love everything I learned, I’d love to go back in good company to share the few things I haven’t done on my own.

The city’s atmosphere is just amazingly insane!

You can see the history in the buildings, you’re taken to the movies you watched and “see” them happening there.

I would say I didn’t completely fall in love with traveling alone but I definitely fell in love with New York!

Regarding the lone traveling… I definitely think at some point everyone should do it, even if just for a week, somewhere they feel safe.

It’s a life lesson.

To the paintors out there!

To all the paintors out there: I have a challenge for you!

Some might take it, others might not even read this… it’s ok… I understand!

Anyway, here it is…

I play with words and try to describe everything through my words.

I would love to see how words can translate into colors and shapes… I would love to see how you translate the idea of Love into a blank canvas.

I would love to see it through your eyes and your art!

What’s your vision of love?

But not any kind of love…

Love in its purest and most sincere form.

Untainted.

Pain free love.

Unconditional, open, promising love.

The first love.

The truest one, undamaged by the following learnings.

The peace you felt, your safe haven.

The fireworks of raw Passion making you feel Alive.

The overwhelming feeling.

These are my words… what’s your painting?

Are you in?
