People and animals in the photographs of Flora Borsi

People & Animals, does it get any better?

Gudsol

Hungarian photographer Flora Borsi produced a stunning series of self-portraits “ANIMAEYED”. Each image is original in that girl’s right eye replaces the animal’s eyes. Even more surreal it gives the make-up and props to help the girl to be like the animals themselves. Creativity Flora is already known to the world: her work has been exhibited in the Louvre and the Saatchi Gallery.

The Streets and Alleys of Baltic (10)

retireediary

I will be doing a series on streets and alleys of the Baltic countries.

I have been to all the Baltic capitals which includes visiting of some of the UNESCO Heritage sites like Vilnius, Riga, Tallin etc.

What I found most interesting are the alleys and the streets which all have their own characteristics.DSC_0361

I am not able to tell you exactly where those alleys and streets are; in my simple mind, they are my memorable parts of the Baltic.

I like the cobblestones, the quaint street, the colored walls on both sides of the alleys, the cafes along or encroached onto the roads, the crude masonry wall facing and last, but not the least, the friendly people.

They leave an undeletable part in my memory!

Caring for Myself is an Act of Survival

I have come to believe that caring for myself is not self-indulgent. Caring for myself is an act of survival ~ Audre Lorde

When I read this quote the other day, I was able to resonate with it and thought it ideal for this weeks kindness challenge.

I often wondered why did it feel so natural to be sympathetic and kind to those we care about—yet so hard to treat ourselves in the same fashion? Why did it feel uneasy to say no to a family member or a colleague when I wasn’t up for the task? Perhaps I just didn’t feel like doing anything at that moment.  Don’t I have that option?

We’ve been led to believe we’re selfish if we think about ourselves or if we give we’re going to look good to them.

I decided a few years ago to invoke self-compassion and kindness towards myself…

ALL BECAUSE YOU LOVE ME

Where Words Daily Come Alive.wordpress.com

unnamed (1)

Before I go to sleep
I hear your angels
as they sing to me
a soft spiritual lullaby

Full of such soft melodic
notes in which everyone
is alive with the joy of
your adoring love

And your many children
the stars seem to sparkle
shining in perfect unison
while praising your holy
name

Causing my eyes to close
while allowing me to rest
so peacefully within my mind
with visions of your paradise
lulling me to sleep

For you have given dominion
over my life as I sleep to your
angels, so I may never know a
restless slumber…
all because You love me.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
1 Peter 5:7 NLT

Casting the whole of your care [all your
anxieties, all your worries, all your
concerns, once and for all] on Him, for
He cares for you affectionately and cares
about you watchfully.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
