A song for Ukraine

The British artist Ed Sheeran has released these days a song that he had filmed in Kyiv, Ukraine, a little bit before the Russian attacks against Ukrainians. The song features Ed Sheeran and rapper Lil Baby performing in the cold streets of Kyiv before “the devastating acts of violence started”, as Ed Sheeran himself explained. The singer has added a personalised message too, in white and black, at the beginning of the video, sharing his support for this Eastern European nation. This song, ” 2 step” is part of his latest music album, “=” (pronounced “equals”), which was released publicly in 2021.

Also, related to the same subject, he also shared his thoughts on the 11th March 2022:

“11 Mar 2022, Ukraine

What we’re witnessing in Ukraine weighs heavy and my love goes out to all of those affected by the devastating conflict.

Martisorul The 1st of March

Martisorul is a very nice Romanian spring celebration that also exists in a few other countries. In general, men offer on this day little objects to any female persons in their lives as a sign of friendship and celebration of spring. It can be anything – little animals, flowers, birds, drawings, shells and it is even more valuable if it is handmade.

I hope that all of you will have nice surprises on the 8, some of you must have had already some on the very 1st – after all, any day is good to bring a smile for the people we love; even men can receive such a little thing, at least if we get inspired from our neighbours in Bulgaria 🙂              

I wish all of you a Magical Spring with good health, vitality and happiness near those special ones in your lives!

martisor

Desi cu o mica intarziere, am dorit sa scriu despre Martisor deoarece este una din cele mai frumoase traditii din Romania, dupa parerea mea. Stiu ca sunt subiectiva insa iubesc primavara si tot ceea ce simbolizeaza ea. De aceea, am asteptat mereu Martisorul cu bucurie, speranta, optimism si nerabdare, marcand in acelasi timp sfarsitul iernii, cel putin simbolic 🙂 Martisorul din imagine a fost colorat de mine cu ce am gasit prin sertare iar in alti ani am reusit sa imi fac timp sa creez propriile martisoare din diverse materiale.

Sper sa aveti cu totii parte de suprize in aceasta luna, poate ati avut pe 1 …poate veti avea pe 8 insa orice zi este binevenita in a aduce un zambet pe fata celor care conteaza pentru noi, desi martie e in general dedicata femeilor. Insa, daca vreti sa ii suprindeti si pe barbatii speciali din vietile voastre, cred ca pot primi si ei un martisor, dupa modelul vecinilor nostri bulgari  🙂 

Va urez o Primavara cu sanatate, vitalitate si fericire zi de zi alaturi de oameni dragi !

 

Snowy tales of Luxembourg

snowy landscapesnow ClervauxLux north snowsnow n Luxisnowy castle

Following my fellow blogger’s suggestion, I have decided to post some little snapshots I have taken in Luxembourg during these winter months. Some are simple, others are poetical, many are different landscapes with some water symphony as I was saying on his blog. 

Most of them are taken in the north of Luxembourg  and some at the Clervaux castle, on a  nice sunny winter day; I used my simple Canon camera and I am happy with these photos but I still have a lot to learn 😉

I think that each season has its beauty, thus winter, too, even if we sometimes freeze. The most important thing is not to let our hearts freeze 🙂 Hoping you will enjoy my photos, I wish all of you a happy and healthy winter even it is not much left and thank you again for reading my blog !
