Early Admiration

The sound so sweet
The rhythm of my heart’s beat
A move that takes my breath away
That look that drove me completely crazy

Love is Free

A cold and grey November day
The sun decides do hide
I’m looking out the window while
My heart goes on a ride

Happy Week!

There are two awesome but also busy weekends lying behind me (one with a big birthday party and the last one I spent on excursions in the woods regarding my phytotherapy school). Unfortunately, that means that there was and no time for scheduling my regular posts for this week. For now, I leave you with a really cool instrumental song that is very popular over here these days. Have a great week!

Break

keyboard-393838_960_720.jpg

Hi friends, I am happy to announce that my vacation week has finally come. That’s why I will take a full break from blogging. Perhaps dropping in from time to time but no posts for this week. Actually, I had planned to work in the garden and to make some day trips. But then life happened and I will be in Vienna for half of the time in order to support my sister.

Have a great week and take care, friends, see you next week!

As I announced last Wednesday, we are in the middle of the end spurt of the preparations for the Big Fat Liechtensteinian Wedding. In addition to work and other duties, time for anything else is more than rare. Therefore I am no posting like usual this week (and keep the comments closed on this post). But whenever possible I will drop in, of course. Stay tuned for the big wedding post any time next week.

Monday Song

music-2087771_960_720

Did you notice that at times you are talking to someone about something important for you and after a while, you notice that that that person looked at you but did not listen at all. They only focus on what they want to say next or on what they want from the situation regardless of other people involved. They only hear what they want to hear and then they log off. The problem is that they overlook important details that way… I just thought of that when I heard this song lately because it reminded me of my colleague at work… life cannot only be roses… lol! So, let’s see the irony in each situation and take it with humor! Happy Monday! Read more ›

I almost couldn’t believe that in the beginning of January, my favorite Italian singer already turned 80! He is a singer, producer, actor, comedian, entertainer, … an Italian megastar who is famous in whole Europe. I loved his funny movies and also his songs with his unique smokey voice. Believe it or not, he still makes music. While writing this post I have listened to several songs he published in his 70’s… and he still sounds the same amazing!

Today I am sharing one of my favorite songs of his. I hope you like it too. Read more ›

Letting Go – Take 2

melancholy1

And here comes a new one poem for participating at Neha’s Calling all Creative Minds/Poets/Artists to a Poetic Collaboration – “Letting Go”

51.jpg

Letting Go

 

What happened once is long ago

Regrets and guilt won’t change it though

 

And all the wounds, well, quite a lot

From all the bullets others shot

 

I think it’s time to let them heal

And stop to make it a big deal

 

Too long I kept the past alive

And cut myself with its sharp knife

 

Too long I carried it along

And kept myself from moving on

 

I look above and see the sky

Was it ever so blue and high?

 

There’s so much room to just be me

I’m letting go and flying free

The 2017 Respect Award

I stopped doing awards because I want to put the message in the center of the attention and not my person. But this award has a special meaning to me because the person who created and forwarded it is deeply respected by me.
It is an honor to receive this award from you, Robert! Thank you from my heart and know that I appreciate you and your gesture very much!

Art by Rob Goldstein

I give this award out once a year as a way to acknowledge
and show respect to fellow bloggers.

I respect you because, you’re compassionate, witty, interesting,
rebellious, imaginative, patient, open-minded, and creative.

I respect you because you are generous with your words and
support; you walk your talk.

I respect you because you raise my spirits and make me smile.

I respect you because you make me a better blogger.

I respect you because you make me feel human.

Nominees don’t have to do a thing.  Nada.  Nothing.

I’ve done my best to avoid nominating people who don’t accept
awards.

But again, this is a no obligation award.

A Public Apology to Myself

This is one of the deepest writings I can remember. I am sure that everybody who reads it finds themselves in there too.

Annette Rochelle Aben

Dear Annette,

I want you to know, that I am sincerely sorry for not treating you better. For not seeing you as worthy of honor and respect. For not being more supportive in those times when you needed me the most. I want to take this time to assure you that I will make demonstrating my responsibility to you, my top priority.

For all those times, I allowed you to accept the shame in the face of verbal, physical, mental, sexual and emotional abuse, I apologize.  You NEVER caused people to behave this way, even though they told you it was all your fault.  You didn’t “ask for it” and I am sorry I didn’t know how to protect you from the attacks or the resulting pain.

For all those times, I allowed you to own the guilt for requiring others to honor their contracts with you, I apologize. You…

Dear readers,

This post is written by Claire, Irene’s daughter. Mom has been at the hospital since Thursday the 8th of June and is still there.

After many days of sleeping she finally woke up. She is still in the intensive care unit and will need some time to recover. We are not sure if it will take weeks before she will be home again.

Mom is a private person and to her it was a big deal even revealing that she doesn’t feel well. So for her sake I will allow her to decide which details to share and which details she wishes to keep to herself. But I would like to assure you that the issues she is having are physical and not mental.

To Mom, her blog and fellow bloggers mean the world. She tells us about her friends, about common interests and about why she likes…

The past weeks and even months were more than filled and at times really stressful. I had a hard time keeping up on all ends. The worst time is over and things will get into a new order. But before this happens I am going to take a complete break. I am on vacation from tomorrow on and will try to stay away from all that looks like a screen. So, don’t worry, I am still alive just giving myself a break. I will be occasionally back reading your posts in about 10 days and from July 3 on I am back posting as usual! Read more ›

Happy Wednesday everybody! I hope the week has been good so far. Today I am sharing a beautiful song. I liked it already when just listening to it on the radio without concentrating on the lyrics. When I checked them out this song became even more interesting to me. I think you can interpret the meaning in many ways, may it be regarding relationships or even spiritually (which was my thought in the first place). But no matter how, this song has something that makes you think! Read more ›

Happy Romantic Tuesday, friends! Today I am sharing a song I loved from the first moment on. When it is love then you develop an inner power that makes you overcome everything even the hardest blocks within you. When it is love, you are following that new road and never think of walking or looking back but only ahead. When it is love there is only one option: together! Read more ›

I know country songs are not everybody’s thing. But whatever it is, I love it. It gives me a feeling of an unburdened uncomplicated time. It gives me a feeling of home and an also make me happy and melancholic at the same time. Really, I don’t know what it is. Anyway, here is a song suggested by one of my friends, Keith of MusingsOfAnOldFart. It is that kind of country songs I really love to listen too in the car on long rides or when sitting outside and enjoying the sun and nature! Thank you, Keith! Read more ›

How Love Feels

 

How can it be

A pair of eyes

Enlarged my heart

Of twice its size

 

A touch without

A hand but with

A look that feels

Like love’s true kiss

 

What have you done?

Got lost in you

Your heart my home

The world all new

 

A prisoner

Unsolicited

A soldier

Who capitulated

 

That’s me since you

Have looked at me

I think that’s how

True love does feel

 

In Love and Light

Hi, my friends! Today we are having a holiday and God knows I need it! My colleague is on sick leave for another 2 weeks. This makes 6 weeks altogether! I don’t complain because of working more. Oh, no! I really love my job. But when you rely on your days off you already have something planned for them. I also have my therapy practice and at the moment there is a lot going on in my private life as well…. next to caring for my sons, the household, the garden,… So, I really enjoy this day for catching up on as many ends as possible. This song is exactly what I need to dance all the work away 😄

I Have Been Interviewed…On Radio No Less!

Look at my sister! She gave her first interview on Annette’s Blog and she did great. Have a listen!!

But I Smile Anyway...

A few weeks ago the lovely Annette contacted me, asking if I would like to take part in her Radio Podcast Tell Me A Story on the radio station The Magic Happens.

I was tentative, nervous even, but a tad excited too… and you know me, I can be like a young excitable puppy sometimes!

The other night we sat ourselves comfortably down for a chat that should have lasted half an hour, but went on into the ‘over an hour’ range! And the interview was born! So if you would like to spend just a measly half an hour listening to my inane ramblings, and Annette’s dulcet tones, please click here or below…

http://themagichappensnow.com/tell-me-a-story-with-annette-rochelle-aben/

The Podcasts are in alphabetical order and I see I am in very good company, but mine happens to be at the top!

So please, have a listen and let me know what you think!

Waterfall – Stargate feat. P!nk and Sia

[Sia:]
I’m in your waterfall
I’m in your waterfall
I’m in your waterfall

[P!nk:]
Oh, I’m in the jungle now
You’ve been seeking, I’ve been hiding out
Use your love, it scares me so deep down
You may find me, ’cause my heart beats loud, so loud
It beats fast, in the places where you touched me last
I can feel the burn my skin, it has
But the return of your beloved hands, hands

[Sia:]
I’ve lost control
I paddle, but you’re too strong
But I gotta trust your flow
‘Cause boy, I’m in your waterfall (waterfall)
Oh, I’ve lost control
And babe, it’s a relief to know
I got you keeping me afloat
When I’m in your waterfall

[Sia:]
I’m in your waterfall
I’m in your waterfall
I’m in your waterfall
I’m in your waterfall
[P!nk:]
I’m in your waterfall
I’m in your waterfall
I’m in your waterfall
I’m in your waterfall

[Sia:]
Baby, you’re my oxygen
When I cannot find my way on Earth
You know I can be when I hold on
Even when the rapid’s strong

[P!nk:]
I’ve lost control
I paddle, but you’re too strong
But I gotta trust your flow
‘Cause babe, I’m in your waterfall ([Sia:] waterfall)
But I’ve lost control
And babe, it’s a relief to know
I got you keeping me afloat
When I’m in your waterfall

But I gotta trust your flow

Oh, I’ve lost control
And babe, it’s a relief to know
I got you keeping me afloat
When I’m in your waterfall

I’m in your waterfall
I’m in your waterfall
I’m in your waterfall ([P!nk:] yeah, yeah)
I’m in your waterfall ([P!nk:] I’m in your waterfall)

I believe that love conquers all as long as it is really love. Love is not staying strong for each other when times are good and giving up or turning away when things get difficult.  It is not falling apart and giving up only because things are not going as desired. It is standing up and giving each other hold. It is backing up each other and standing tall with and for each other even more the rougher times are! It is overcoming your own pride and fear. Perhaps this is only a romantic dream…. but I believe that when love is true this is not only possible but a natural consequence and reaction.  Read more ›
