Hello April!

Standard

Welcome April !

The Motto for April is:

Plant seeds of love everywhere you go!

It is so important.

We cannot hug or be close,

but we can show our love in different ways.

Stay connected,

support each other,

with words,

show you care.

Stay strong, stay focused,

and continue to follow the rules of your government.

We can do it together.

A big thank you to all the people on the front line,

who keep everything going.

You are amazing in what you do.

 

Sending you sincere cyber hugs, thinking of you,

praying for you.

 

Have a safe April!

We need love

Standard

Dear friends,

know that you are not alone.

We are all joined in love.

 

Every situation in Life is temporary.

So when life is good,

make sure you enjoy and receive it fully.

And when life is not so good,

remember that it will not last forever

and better days are in the way.

Jenni Young

 

Sending good thoughts to each of you

in this blogging community and the world.

Take good care of yourself and stay safe!

 

Start the new year well

Standard

…. without judging

Go into your new day with open eyes and an open mind.

Meet everyone without without judging, without labeling them.

Start to meet people with curious eyes and get to know them again with fresh eyes.

I learn more about them this way.

Over Christmas I read the book Eleanor Oliphant is completely fine.

(as recommended via Beth’s blog)

A brilliant book:

 

Meet Eleanor Oliphant: she struggles with appropriate social skills and tends to say exactly what she’s thinking. Nothing is missing in her carefully timetabled life of avoiding unnecessary human contact, where weekends are punctuated by frozen pizza, vodka, and phone chats with Mummy.

But everything changes when Eleanor meets Raymond, the bumbling and deeply unhygienic IT guy from her office. When she and Raymond together save Sammy, an elderly gentleman who has fallen, the three rescue one another from the lives of isolation that they had been living. Ultimately, it is Raymond’s big heart that will help Eleanor find the way to repair her own profoundly damaged one. If she does, she’ll learn that she, too, is capable of finding friendship—and even love—after all.

the only way to survive is to open your heart

 

I loved the book, it opens your eyes in how you see people,

we often judge people but never know why they are the way they are.

What you go through in your life shapes your life.

How you grow up, what you hear, your friends everything influences your life and the way you are.

Read the book you’ll love it.

Oslo Impressions – Part 3

Standard

The city of Oslo has modern Opera house.

You can walk up and are rewarded with a beautiful view.

They are building a new Library at the right side of the picture.

You can see glass art from Monika Bonvicini called ‘She Lies‘.

It is a permanent installation, floating on the water in the fjord on a concrete platform, rising 12 metres (39 ft) above the water surface.

The sculpture turns on its axis in line with the tide and wind, offering changing experiences through reflections from the water and its transparent surfaces.
