Too Much Talking/Πολυ Μπλα Μπλα

‘Too much Talking’ Illustration by Angela Zafiris

Now it’s time for a little rant…

I was on You Tube and I came across numerous talking heads with channels. I listened and listened to what they have to say about people, life and the universe.. blah blah blah.  I disagreed with a few things that they had to say. They seemed so out of touch. I realized it was just useless banter from people of privileged positions.  They are all so sanctimonious with their ‘crowns’ and with a talent at bringing people down because its profitable. Some have a PhD in whatever field and some are intuitive/spiritual and others who have the gift of gab aka blabber mouths.  There is a laundry list of things you HAVE to do before a certain age (God forbid you don’t want to do those things) or you do, but haven’t achieved these things yet, and perhaps you never will. That’s life!

What is right for them might not work for you. What they wanted out of life might not necessarily want what you want out of life.

So be your own life coach. Follow your own path. If life is too short then don’t listen to the dribble. We will all end up six feet under anyways no matter what road or piece of advice we take.

Now, I hope that wasn’t too much talking for you. Just a healthy dose of the truth.

Make sure to get some vitamin C this cold/flu season A little raw garlic clove ingested with orange juice in another trick to keep the germs at bay.

Να κατανλωνετε βιτανιμνη C για να αποφευγετε το κρυολογημα και τη γριπη.  Λιγο ωμο σκορδο συνοδευμενο με πορτοκαλαδα θα κρατησουν τα μικροβια μακρια.

Frosty Rose/ Παγωμενο Τριανταφυλλο

A ‘cool’ photo of a rose kissing snow (love this shade of pink) with a two layered background, rose stems and bokeh. I didn’t expect a good result from this shot.  Photography is magic 😉

Ένα τριαντάφυλλο που φιλάει το χιόνι. Λατρεύω αυτή τη σκιά του ροζ. Με δύο στρώματα φόντου,  τριαντάφυλλα και bokeh. Δεν περίμενα ένα καλό αποτέλεσμα από αυτό το πλάνο. Η φωτογραφία είναι μαγική 😉

Snow Capped Mountains/Χιονισμενα Βουνα

mtpentelitxtsnowcappedmountainsThe new year brought a new winter storm named ‘Telemachos’ (named after a character in Greek mythology) to Greece.  It snowed in the Attiki region of Greece for the first time in years. The rest of Greece is worse than Canada-yikes!  I wanted to make it up those mountains take some pictures, but the traffic is insane.

More ‘icy’ photos to come.

Ο Τηλεμαχος ηρθε και παγωσαμε!

Πιο ‘παγωμενες’ φωτογραφιες συντομα.

 

Happy 2019!/ Ευτυχισμένο το 2019

happynewyear

Happy New Year! May the new year bless everyone with love, good health, and prosperity.

It was a very rainy and windy New years eve here in Athens, but the weather didn’t stop the beautiful fireworks display from happening all over the city.

I am very glad to let 2018 go as it was a very challenging year for, not only myself, but for the whole world.  I am so thankful for this blog as it has helped me remain motivated and focused on my creative pursuits. Thank goodness for creativity!

The world can seem so dark,and life can be such a disappointment sometimes; people can be so cruel, but the beauty of art and nature balances it all out.

Stay strong no matter what the new year may bring. 🙂
