Direction

It is not about having everything to start the journey through life well. I think it is most of all about where I want to be and what I am willing to pay just to reach my goal. I imagined a boat, with me controlling the rudder, I start to sail but without a definite direction, my boat, in the sea of life will just keep on moving, maybe reaching a land where I don’t want to go to, or worst, I continue to sail, looking for that “island”, but without knowing really what I want and the willingness to make sacrifices, I will surely be like a boat without a destination that when the storm comes the probability of sinking is very high. With this thought, I promise to myself to live today to the fullest with all the most beautiful and positive feelings, to reach my goal, a step at a time.

Wishing everyone a beautiful Sunday!

A fairy garden to light up my day…

Bardolino, Lake Garda, Italy

It’s a  cloudy and cold day and yet… this small but very interesting town in Lake Garda has so much magic in it, the day seemed brighter and warmer.

Lake Garda and…

Who hanged this heart of stone?

“It is only with the heart that one can see clearly” this phrase reminds me of…The little Prince (in the book written by Antoine de Saint Exupèry) “It is only in the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye”.

Someone painted this on a wall…

Wishing everyone a wonderful Sunday!

“Acqua alta”, Venice

Venice…Though in the past few days the city and its inhabitants were greatly affected by the bad weather condition here in the north of Italy, though in some parts of Saint Mark’s  Square you can still see the effects of the “acqua alta”, considered as one of the worst in the history of Venice, it is amazing how this historical city in the veneto region, for me, the most romantic city in the world,  is still so beautiful though today it seems to be pleading to be protected and preserved for the future generations to come. Venice is not only a beautiful city but it also represents one of the most precious and beautiful legacy the past has ever given to humanity.

Weekend

It’s been raining a lot out here but this little pink rose caught my attention. Inspite of the cold, wind and rain… it can still bloom giving me joy in these gloomy, cold, rainy and windy days of Autumn.

Wishing you all a pleasant and restful weekend!

It is not about telling someone “I am sorry!” It is what you do to show you are sorry. AFS
