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

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!
