Schwansee Lake - Bavaria

Not all scars show,
not all wounds heal,
sometimes you can't always see the pain someone feels.

Sometimes the most important thing in a whole day is the rest we take between two deep breaths. ~Etty Hillesum

Zermatt - Switzerland

Memory is a way of holding on
to the things you love,
the things you are,
the things you never want to lose.

Füssen - southwest Bavaria - Germany
No dia que o peso se apoderar dos teus ombros, e tropeçares,
Que a terra dance, para equilibrar-te!
E, quando teus olhos congelarem,
Por trás da janela cinzenta,
E o fantasma da perda chegar a ti…
Que um bando de cores,
Índigo, vermelho, verde e azul celeste,
Venham dispertar em ti,
Uma brisa de alegria!

Quando a vela se apagar no barco do pensamento,
E uma sensação de escuro estiver sobre ti,
Que surja para ti, uma trilha de luar amarelo,
Para levar-te a salvo para casa!
Que o alimento da Terra seja teu…
Que a claridade da Luz te ilumine…
Que a fluidez do Oceano te inunde…
Que a proteção dos Antepassados esteja contigo!
E assim…
Que um vento teça essas palavras de amor à tua volta,
Num invisível manto para zelar por tua vida, onde estiveres!
Que este decreto se cumpra em Luz e Graça.

Assim Seja!
Benção Celta

23rd Anniversary

"Chains do not hold a marriage together. It is threads, hundreds of tiny threads, which sew people together through the years".
Simone Signoret

Love is a symbol of eternity. It wipes out all sense of time, destroying all memory
of a beginning and all fear of an end.

“When you have come to the edge of all the light you have
And step into the darkness of the unknown
Believe that one of the two will happen to you
Either you'll find something solid to stand on
Or you'll be taught how to fly!”
― Richard Bach

“Some choices we live not only once but a thousand times over,
remembering them for the rest of our lives.”

LandArt in pink

LandArt, or EarthArt is an art movement in which landscape and the work of art are inextricably linked. It is also an art form that is created in nature, using natural materials such as soil, rock (bed rock, boulders, stones), organic media (logs, branches, leaves), and water with introduced materials such as concrete, metal, asphalt, or mineral pigments. Sculptures are not placed in the landscape, rather, the landscape is the means of their creation. Often earth moving equipment is involved. The works frequently exist in the open, located well away from civilization, left to change and erode under natural conditions.

I will be the gladdest thing
Under the sun!
I will touch a hundred flowers
And not pick one.

My hope is green

If you lose hope, somehow you lose the vitality that keeps life moving, you lose that courage to be, the quality that helps you to go on in spite of all. And so today I still have a dream.
– Martin Luther King, Jr

My hope is green and I also still have a dream! :)

Have a nice weekend!

Burro de Miranda or Burro do Planalto Mirandês,

This autochthonous donkey breed is located in North-Eastern Portugal, in the neighbouring area to the Spanish Zamorano-Leones donkey breed.

The donkeys are predominantly used as draught animals in agriculture and as pack animals in tourism. This population is most endangered because almost only old people keep this breed.
