A Walk to Remember 

Walking in silence. Alone. At dusk… awakens the senses, the need for awareness, the hunger for understanding… introspection, stillness inside while in movement, I can listen to my heart and actually hear what it is saying, realize what my soul knew already … searching for unspoken words to sooth my spirit, searching for a connection to the Universe, a connection to one’s self…

Walking in silence. Alone.

…Introspeccion, stillness inside, while in movement, so I can listen to my heart…

…and actually hear what it’s saying, realize what my soul knew already…

The Ghost of Christmas Past

Christmas is the most beautiful holiday of the year and even though we have managed to commercialize it to a point of no return it stills holds a profound meaning to me and to millions of people around the world … I believe all Christmases are happening at the same time, just like in Dickens’ “A Christmas Carol”  We are all connected, we are all the same….  I wanted to share with you the Christmas images I’ve been having lately in my mind and heart. I hope that you enjoy them and that they touch your heart as much as they did mine!

YEP! WHAT HE SAID!

My husband at Piazza San Marco in Venice, a long, long time ago... As I like to say: He was born the first half of last century! Sounds impressive, doesn't it?! (at the very end, 1949)
