Mediterranean Moving Moments: My Pictures from Europe 2013

I wrote quite a lot in my diary when I was in Europe. Here are a few photos and I wanted to share extracts from a piece ...

Once you see the range of natures formations, you realize how insignificant you are. Yet, every seed of life has a place. Whether the endless blue sea, or the harmonious marriage of the mountains and the coastline. What is realized is that control is far beyond humankind...

I release myself to be with what`s natural to me, instinctively. Define my own creativity. To love endlessly, with a compass guiding towards Motherland (a place to revere, celebration and nurture).  I am trying to keep my attractions in perspective, but there is no perspective when love is in the air. Existing, letting go the need to place barriers or affirmations....

But as the laws of nature state, you will attract back what you make of yourself: thoughts, emotions and choices. Wash back into the ocean of it all, where life begins and often ends.

Fatigue, I remove the shell on my back full of duties. I relax and try to breath all the history into my lungs. Where magnificence is realized is in abundance of beauty is outside, so vibrantly alive. Then you can quietly return to your heart and mind and remember inspiration - a reason to make art and express love.
