Sea shell dreams

“And so with the sunshine and the great bursts of leaves growing on the trees, just as things grow in fast movies, I had that familiar conviction that life was beginning over again with the summer.” ― F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby

Life here has been busy and hot, and demanding and certainly colorful, way too colorful to remain concentrated, so I’ve decided to take another short break.  I need to finish the sea-shell dreams I’ve started a month ago, to chase the sunset and the wind that stole the drops of my inside, purple rain, to find a way to learn a proper use of the tenses in the English language/ this is not meant to be a metaphor :), I do have problems with verbs and if you have advice on how to improve that by myself, do share!!!/.  And to all of you that come here and cherish my posts, may you have lovely days filled with inspirations.

I’ll be back soon!

Love& Peace …

9/11 – Foolish games

“If we learn nothing else from this tragedy, we learn that life is short and there is no time for hate …”
Sandy Dahl, the wife of Flight 93 pilot Jason Dahl.

* * * * *

Day by day the games of peace and war damage the strength of humanity that holds the parallels and the meridians on Earth at the right place so we can exist not only today, but tomorrow too. The humanity, once valued as priceless by me, by you, by all of us who find grace and happiness first and most of all in the laughter of children, that humanity now suffers, weak and burning in pain. That humanity is almost brought down to the ground, praying on tired knees for a change and a ray of hopeful light.

I wonder how many days with smoke and flames, how many towns destroyed under the liquid sunshine we have to witness, to realize that in these foolish games only the innocent leave their lives buried in ashes and concrete. How many memorial services we have to swallow through eyes torn apart by the salt of the tears, how many names we have to engrave through the flowers left in memory, to understand that in these foolish games kindness dies first and the new day that comes carries rage and sadness that leads to new games, new wars, new tragedies … ?

The man with an engagement ring in the pocket that never came back home from work; the son whispering “I love you” on the phone to his mom, knowing there are minutes left to live; the little boy that never got a birthday present from his dad, because he was on duty saving someone else’s life; Who will explain the rules of the big games to all these strangers? Who will tell them that they’ve reached the finishing line without the right to throw the dice? Who asked them if they want the title “A winner with a special prize- the death”?

I can go on forever, upset by how the world has become, how easy people choose to fight in the name of power over faith, in the name of lost causes over hurt ego and pride, but today is not about blaming who’s fault were the tragedies, today is about the fallen and their families, a day to honor the memory of all who lost their lives! And we can hope, we can only hope that the blood and the tears shed will help humanity to give the world a lesson, to give every nation a purpose to treasure the peace and the colors of smiles left …

Versatile Blogger Award

 

After all the troubles I’ve had with my previous blog, it was really nice to find this morning that I won the Versatile Blogger Award.  According to the Rules, to accept the award, I need to:

  • Thank the person who awarded you and link back to them in your post.
  • Tell 7 Random facts about yourself.
  • Pass the award on to 15 new found bloggers.
  • Contact each blogger you want to pass the award on to and let them know you’ve done so, and let the giver of your award know you accept it.

Thank you very much to Morganna and her Lizbeth’s Garden for that honor! It was really a pleasant surprise!

Also thanks to Magdalena Herman for another appreciated award, really pleasant surprise!


Seven random things about me …

1. I don’t like pink colors, chocolate and gold.

2. I love blue, silver and white roses.

3. I wish I could live in Australia. Actually I wish I could live in a different country every other month. And when I see the whole world, to retire in Sydney and have my coffee with view the Opera, listen to Mozart and write poetry for my other half …

4. I like my coffee without sugar, but with drop of milk.

5. Airplanes make me feel good. I love the actual flight.

6. I’m very naive at times, having faith in people I shouldn’t have and thinking that everyone means good. That’s something I still haven’t figured out how to get rid off.

7. If I didn’t hate winter and cold I would’ve liked to do ice skating. Tried it once and definitely not my thing, despite the fact that I can sit and watch ice skating for hours on TV.

Here are my nominations, I know I’m not supposed to give the award to the people Elizabeth gave already, but I’ll have an exception on my nomination list:

1. Olivia

2. Jamie Dedes

3. Cherlyn

4. Cheryl

5. Sonam

6. Saber

7. Rachana

8. Victoria

9. Marissa

10 Lady Nimue

11. Life between the lines

12. Aleza

13. Dragon Ka-tet

14. Butterflies of time

15. Rea

Once again, thank you Morganna for the honor! I am now off to inform my nominated people for the award and you, my dear readers, thanks for stopping by here, though the Scent of my heart has now the sound of Broken Sparkles, I’m happy to see you all at my new home!

And I’m sorry for the messy look of the blog, transferring the content from one blog to another needs a bit of re-arranging … smiles!

Love& Hugs!
