Watch your thoughts,
for they become words.
Watch your words,
for they become actions.
Watch your actions,
for they become habits.
Watch your habits,
for they become character.
Watch your character,
for it becomes your destiny.
Eating my fav sandwich in the morning: avo, coriander and sea salt
Enjoying Beatrice’s most amazing home made cookies.
(The French Macaroni’s are to die for!)
Going out to dinner with my Italian teacher
Drinking coffee outdoor home-town-style with my ex roomie
And family-life style at my childhood friend’s house
Cuddling with their new-born, Emilia (I know, she looks mostly frightened)
Going to the library with grandma
Hanging out with Mio
And Carola’s daughter Nova (taking pictures at each other)
Spending Friday nights at home.
(Here we invited our neighbour Bosse up for scallops served with pasta in a creamy white wine sauce, topped with roasted pine nuts and sprinkled prociutto, à la mamma! Best restaurant in town the World!)
Making my vision board and having awesome talks with my coach (no, not the cat ) Feeling excited about coming chapters in my life!
Thanx for peekin’ in!
If you have built castles in the air, your work need not be lost; that is where they should be. Now put the foundations under them.
Henry David Thoreau
The first snow has fallen.
White frost decorates the brittle autumn leaves. Random little spots of ice remind me that it’s time to store away the bike soon.
Nature is in transit…
Glorious September is gone. Puzzling October will soon be over.
The trees are almost bare.
I love the fact that I live in a country with four different seasons. I love the shift that nature performs every breathing moment, manifesting change. Sometimes unmistakable evident; leaves twirling down from the trees in the fall. The sound of running water breaking free in spring.
But most often, change comes creeping.
And we don’t see it until we wake up one morning and find the fields all covered in snow.
It makes me think about our human nature. How we too, are in a moment of constant change (paradoxically as it sounds). And how mornings, moments, lunches, dinners and goodnight’s go by, without us actually realizing that no day will ever be the same.
We are not who we were yesterday.
We won’t be entirely identical, tomorrow.
How does change feel?
If I were a tree, how would I know…
when it was time to let go of my leaves?
We are always looking for signs, but sometimes there are none, except for a notion, an instinct deeply rooted in us.
Vanessa expressed in a blog post a while ago, that she felt like she was “in the air between the letting go and the landing”
Maybe, in the movement of falling, the transformation takes place.
At the end of the day you can either focus on what’s tearing you apart,
or what’s holding you together.
Artist: The Black Keys
Released: May 2010
Favorite tracks: All of them, though I particularly like the first half of songs.
The Black Keys are definitely one of the best blues rock bands of the Century. Some say this album is “slick” compared to their early albums and truthfully “The Big Come Up” and “Rubber Factory” are much more dirty and raw. But then again, “Attack and Release (which is already on this list) and “Brothers” is so well produced, and I dig that. Sort of spotlessly muddy.
