Transparent door

Imagine having a transparent door. Nothing to hide, no fear from breaking in, no separation from 'in' or 'out'.
Do you think you have to be brave to have a door like this? I think so.

Imagine that that kind of door is the door to your heart... Transparent, clear, 'open'. What a brave heart you have to have to show it to the whole world! Not many people can do that.

I think there's still a way to be brave when we are not brave enough to choose a transparent door. We can decide to have an inviting door and when people knock on our door, we can let them in or not.
Choose the door that represents you - big, small, wide, decorated, painted, vintage... The door will invite people who have the same feelings, the same expectations, the same values. It will be easier to decide to let them in or not when they knock on your door. (Of course, practicing to let everyone in would be the best thing to do, but for a start, this is one way to practice bravery).
Free yourself from fear!  And be creative on a search for the door that fit you the most.

The June's theme for photo-project 'Beauty is where you find it' was: 'Doors'. Let yourself get inspired by other bloggers and their marvelous images by clicking the links on the Luzia Pimpinella's blog. Enjoy and be brave! 

Art of Wood

Nature is full of gifts. One of them is wood - it can be used in so many ways, shapes and forms. Here, in Austria, I think living with wood has become a tradition, glorification of Nature and art.

There's something about wood that makes you feel 'at home', warm and comfortable. Like you are held in the arms of Mother Nature. 

But here, people went further with it. Full of imagination and love for Nature, they started to play with the wood, carve in it, paint it, build with it... You will find it everywhere in their lives.

Houses, fences, playgrounds, furniture, bikes, shoes, bowls, pots... Things are not just made from wood - they are carved in, decorated little pieces of art. With a personal touch, every piece of wood becomes more than just a wood. It becomes a story-teller, an expression of feelings and a dance of natural forces.

Wood lets you play with it, but it doesn't allow you to do everything with it. It gives you freedom and boundaries. It gives you a lot, but not everything. You still need to listen to it, love it and care for it. You still have to respect it and use it the proper way.

Wood is like a living being. It can make your heart sing when you treat it with love and care. Or it can burn out in a few minutes when you treat it bad.

We always have a choice how we treat others, how we treat everything in our world. In our Lab, we are choosing harmony, beauty and respect. How about you? Has art of wood taught you anything for life, too?

Reflections

That's how I think I look inside... sometimes. ..

Transient

Reflections of the reflections of the reflections... And a brand new composition, a brand new image in my head.  

Can you guess how many reflections are here on this image? (It was created with one click only). 

Time stopped

Time has stopped. I'm listening to the silence, whispered by the snow sprinkled over the streets and fields.

Words become speechless. Everything is perfect just the way it is. In silence.

What else to wish than: let it snow!

Let the stopped time rests your soul and body...

Stories

I wonder what are the stories behind these facades... 

Romantic?

Horrifying?

Old-fashioned?

Simple?

Long?

And I wonder, what are the stories that you write behind your facade?
