Characters

When I'm out and about in the crowds, I look for people who catch my eye because there's something about their character that make them 'special'.

Sometimes it's the way they make their mark among the others.

Sometimes it's the way they move.

They might dare to do something you're afraid to do.

Or they know how to control themselves, their body.

Sometimes they look at you with that deep, wise look.

Or you feel in tune when hanging around them.

Sometimes you're fascinated by their 'happy-to-be-here' look.

And sometimes the whole personality pops-out like a shining star.

Some characters are so strong that you notice them right away, but I believe, when you stay long enough among the people, you can find something that fascinates you in every person you see.

Captured

Following the previous blog post, there's one more thing to notice when talking about for-ever.

The traditional garment. It looks like this tradition, this style is immortal. It seems it was, it is and it will be here forever.

In a way it is captured in time. It fits into any year, to any age and gender.

Little details make the folk costume unique, personal and creative.

But I believe it's not only the dress that makes you 'beautiful and interesting', but also how you wear it.

When you feel comfortable and relaxed wearing it, you become a whole person - a person that attracts attention and admiration from other people.

You glow!

You shine!

Traditional garment has no age limit.

It fits to young and old, big and small,...

... and from the top of the head to the toes.

Try it one day - maybe it bewitches you too!

For-ever

Some things are meant to last for-ever:

celebrations (with a style)...

focusing on important things...

tender thoughtfulness...

smiles...

and smiles and smiles and smiles...

greatness...

humbleness...

glowing personality...

a little connection with roots...

great company...

and walking home with a fulfilled heart...

No matter the year, the season, the age... - some things are meant to last for-ever.

Modern meditation

Today is a special day. A perfect day for meditation, for inner peace and for thinking about harmony. Will you spend some time listening to your inner Self?

We don't have to be all alone in a monestery or a church to meditate. We can do it wherever we are - in the middle of the street, next to our friends or family, when hiking in the mountains... If you practice to 'switch off' wherever you are, then a place for a meditation can be found anywhere and whenever you feel like it.

Christmas is a good day for meditation. It's a good day to polish the soul and stop the world.

Today I am thankful for a time for meditation, a time for inner peace and stillness.

Back in time

Do you often 'travel' back in time in your thoughts? Are you sorry for some days that they passed by unnoticed? Are you inspired by the people or achievements of previous centuries?

I can't stop being amazed by the old times. What they've achieved in architecture, how they lived their life with the nature, how they've experimented with the clothing...

Transient

I would like to have a peek into Da Vinci's daily life, or see how Michelangelo or Rembrandt managed to paint in a cold, difficult circumstances... Life of the farmers, slaves, poor people, composers, astronomists... Ooh, so much to learn, so much to admire!
