From Greece again, with peace !

My dear readers, I hope this little post will bring you some freshness, relaxing vibes for your minds, joy, hope and trust in all the good values that inspire us, day by day. I am also attaching a few photos as images can speak for themselves and I hope that, wherever you are, this summer with a nice number otherwise, 2022, can bring you 222 reasons to feel healthy, loved, trustful and joyful, no matter what.

First of all, the choice for an escape to Greece was excellent; the seaside landscape was amazing, the weather was at its best and there were not so many tourists in the seaside resort where I spent my days. Every night I was able to admire fire flies again in the darkness, after many years.

An amazing discovery is linked to the local flora. I have always, wrongly, thought that passiflora grows very far from where I live. Well, it seems that this amazing flower, having a lot of benefits about which I hope to write a future post, grows in Greece, too. It was a magical moment for me, when one evening, while we were walking towards the beach to see again the fire flies, I noticed the passiflora in a green bush near our small village route. I hope you also have such magical discoveries this year!!

I am choosing this other photo on purpose; you all know how the world is now and how it has been in the recent 20, 30 years, although our grandparents went through a world war….mankind has not learnt anything from its history…One of the things I am sure of is that we don’t know at all anything about what and who is behind conflicts and bad news…but we are all suffering because of them, some more, others less. Please read this in any of the languages and, for one second, just close your eyes and imagine a round blue ball smiling and smiling and smiling. Let the blue ball be our Earth and let our positive thoughts help it be healthy, safe, happy and durable… we shall never have another planet to live on.

Time for a little meditation, under the palm trees – happiness is for free, good things take time, live simply so that others can simply live….The breeze, the perfume of the roses, the amazing stones, the ships passing by… and all these things are quite enough to make many of us happy 🙂

As I am mentioning these amazing fire flies, please enjoy this song and focus this summer on all the positive things in your lives:

Of course, photos with the sunset, my favourite time-moment of the day could not miss. This precious sunset was taking place near a beach bay called Lefkimmi. I had the luck to watch the whole sunset with my boys and enjoy the sound of the waves, the amazing smell of the sea, the soft sand I felt with my feet…. and to realise, again, how grateful I am for all these.

Have a wonderful summer everyone & keep yourselves healthy – body and mind 🙂 !!!

World Water Day – 22nd of March

Water – the source of life and even more that that. We could not live without water but do we really appreciate it? Thanks to this day we should really learn to treat water with more respect, appreciation and care. Water is an essential condition for our life and health.

Water is the cradle of life; if there had not been water on Terra, we would not be alive today. Still, the quality of waters all over the world is not what it used to be, especially because of humans’ actions everywhere. We should be more and more numerous to respect water surfaces and keep them clean.

Myself I am a big admirer of seaside places; some people love lakes, other would never get away from the ocean if living there for long…or some love rain – I could agree with all of them. I cannot explain why but water surfaces give me beneficial emotions, energies and I feel so happy whenever I spend time besides any type of water surface. I also love rain, as long as I don’t get completely soaked…In my home town, June is the “‘rain-month” already for many years now; it is raining a lot every June, but later in the year, thanks to that, I find the best fruits and vegetables in the fresh markets all over the country.

You all know much more about water, be it through your work or private lives; this day is meant to remind us all of the value of water and make us cherish all the water zones we have – on the continents or outside them.

The Buddhist Masaru Emoto has said: “Water has the magical capacities to give birth to all things and to keep information“. This thought is something wise we should meditate about, especially that our bodies contain, as you all know, lots of water. Drinking enough water also adds up a lot to our general physical and emotional health.

Enough talking – now, dear readers, go and drink a glass of mineral water, look at the drops of dew on the grass, check the clouds, wash your hands with warm water, listen to a waterfall or whatever puts you in a magical contact with…. Water. May you be blessed with healthy “waters” to drink and to admire!

Seaside spring impressions

Hello again from the virus-free seaside ! Spring in seascape areas is something completely magical. Trees are still in bloom and the sea water is coldish; the beaches are empty and you feel like the king of the sea. Sunny days are great and that specific iodine air is filling your lungs with the powerful healthy energy of the sea. What can you wish for more?

Wild goose flying

You may run into wild geese, lazy cats or dogs, seagulls, swallows or even little fish in the waves that are welcoming you naturally in their environment, still calm in May. Simple moments of life which become amazing when you realise that you are the only spectator.

There are algae here and there and so many shiny stones and shells that you feel you’re walking on some beaches in Greece; the healthy sea smell is reaching your nose and you see a little bar where they prepare the famous ”hamsii” 🙂 you cannot be wrong, this is the Black Sea, the amazing, calm and relaxing seaside of Eastern Europe.

And there is a lost person walking somewhere further thinking about you as ”another crazy tourist” when they see you alone on the sand…. But you don’t care at all, you are the master of the seaside, everything is all yours! The sunshine is perfect, the sand is fine like face powder, the sea boasts some amazing shades of turquoise, dark blue and grey and you decide to taste the famous ”hamsii”. Houuh, the wind is blowing with strength and your hat is running away 🙂 🙂

Wow, some trees are still in bloom and it feels that spring still has a long way to go; but it has got warm enough for one good icecream! Some waves grow bigger and bigger and there is a nice beach corner where you can eat the icecream in calm; hopefully the lazy cat will not disturb you. Take some photos before the wind starts again to blow. This moment is perfect, a blend of spring and summer, a mixture of land and water and a combination of happiness and melancholy – breathe in this air, fill your lungs with the sea salty particles, add some more joy and love in your heart and may these seaside impressions bring you positive energies for the whole year!
