Trying to Think Positively…

July 22, 2014

Once again I haven’t posted anything new for over a week…

I have several subjects that I will share with you in the near future, just in the last few days I simply couldn’t concentrate on anything – the latest events have left me wondering what direction we will chose and if there’s anything that would put an end to this bold murder without causing more damage.

With shocking images and news reaching us daily I can’t stop thinking about the people who lost their loved ones – their lives have been changed in a blink of an eye and the whole World must seem as a dark and dangerous place. I must admit even I have to try hard to shake off all the grey shadows that keep covering my thoughts like a thick blanket…

I’m trying to think positively and look for beauty and there’s no better place to do this than in a garden.

So here’s a minute of silence…

And the stillness of Nature.

    your post moved me Kristina. Living in the Netherlands, this tragedy hit close to home, but I stopped following it after the first day. I just didn’t want to keep being exposed to the media hype again and again. As a result I’d distanced myself, and as far as I know, there was no one we knew on that flight.

    However on the train today I saw a newspaper with a list of the names of all the passengers -Dutch as well as British and other nationalities, it really shocked me and brought home to me the scope of what has happened.

    So thanks for taking some time to acknowledge this sad event too, and for offering beauty and nature as consolation, which they are. Your photos are wonderful. x S

      Thank you for leaving a message,Sarah. I’m glad you didn’t find this post too over the top – the media has already showed everything they could, which of course is too much… I have one big problem – over-thinking, so my brain hasn’t stopped for a week now… I guess having experienced what it’s like living behind the iron curtain, having heard the stories about the sufferings of my great grandparents, I’m once again shocked by the naive statements made by the West. Everyone wants peace, yet the price we are paying is too high. K.
