All right

I'm back. Don't ask me where I've been. I don't remember, I was half dead. I was sick and unable to do anything! I couldn't read, eat, talk, move... - anything. It was no fun.

I wish I had the right magic potion at hand then...

Luckily, I'm feeling better now. It's time to catch up with my work and other obligations. I still can't sit at the computer for long, but at least I can do other things. Today, you can find my post at Vision & Verb, also, don't forget to join me from time to time at my FB page and G+ to get inspired and creative. It's wonderful to connect with you!

Sometimes, little things make a difference; and that's exactly what I love about you and your visits. Just saying hi or writing your thoughts in the comments can make a difference - for me or somebody else. Some of you already made a difference by supporting me and my project(s). [More about the progress I'll write in a few weeks to you via e-mail and personally]. Maybe that was a little step or gesture from you, but a big difference for me. You've changed my life! 

I think, we can do so much together, if we try! Esp., now that we feel so sad and wonurable in this world situation, everything matters. We should step together, support each other, be together! Thank you to everyone who decided to support me! :)

My world is breaking to peaces lately. Physically and literally. I don't know if this means that something good will come out of this. I hope. Our renovations of the house are still in the 'dirty phase'. I still don't have my own bed to sleep in, floors are gone, you'll see white dust everywhere...

I don't know what will the future bring, but I try to be brave and say: everything's going to be all right.

How about you? Are you all right?

A Special Day

Sometimes the days are perfect. Sunshine, interesting places, nice company... and the camera. No need for anything else; everything is pure harmony.

It is exciting to explore places you've already seen, but there's always something different and surprising waiting for you there. It's the time when you feel that things are in a place, when nothing is missing, when the day is rich just because it is the way it is...

Anywhere I'd go with Vladka, I would love in. Nevertheless, we choose a place which stirs our imagination, takes our minds back to the old, mysterious times and enriches our inner selves. We went to Žiče near Slovenske Konjice.

We've chosen a glorious silence. Behind thick walls, we didn't find closed, darkrooms, on the contrary! A soft grass under our feet, clear skies above our heads, and tired walls talked about life in a distant past, and wide open doors invited us to enter a magical mysterious world.

Although the old Gothic cathedral propagated behind the silence, it was not difficult to imagine the sounds of coral singing, sometimes echoed from the high walls. Certainly they were 'close to heaven' when the monks in white gathered in the church and left the sublime vibrations of sounds. Heavenly sounds, heavenly melodies...

The walls didn't stop us from exploring the old monastery. In fact, our cameras sang cheerfully because of our enthusiastic views on different colored stones and remains of walls. How many times the walls were touched already, how many views the majestic architecture has conceived?

It was a nice day, a special day. The one you don't forget. The one that echoes in your heart.

When I look at the photos that emerged in our wandering, I see Vladka right beside me...I hear her story of her life. And I hear how sounds of our digi-cameras create a new melody, our own melody.

It was a special day, a nice day...

Too short... We will have to do it again :).

Do you want to know how Vladka has seen and experienced our day? Then you have to jump to her blog Ustvarjalna skrinja and let yourself into her hands.

Enjoy!
