Japanese Year in Ukraine

2017 is the year of Japan in Ukraine. Thus, Ukrainians have a unique chance to get to know more about Japan and its culture. I was particularly lucky to visit Japanese Gardens which are presented right in the city. I felt very inspired by the seen. There is no single element or design component indicative of or required for a Japanese garden. The simplicity of Zen design is often the main finished attribute of a Japanese garden, which encompasses peace, calm and serenity. Varieties of design elements are generally incorporated to achieve the full effect of a traditional Japanese garden. Have a look:

Spring Stroll with Camera

There’s nothing more exciting and challenging than a new video about spring!😊 This time it was particularly captivating since I was literary under the weather and grey clouds that were frowning at me. They were pretty against of me, did several attempts to stop me, but failed. No power can stop Ann when she holds her beloved camera and hunts for spectacular views to share. There’s always something unique to be seen through my camera lenses. Believe me It’s worse fighting against weather and any other obstacles. For some of you this video will be special one, cannot tell why – you have to watch it till the end, surprise is waiting for you…😉 I guess spring is the most generous season, isn’t it, dear artists? So much beauty in every detail that you need extra time and battery to capture them. I continue my spring journey to discover the unseen and to admire the known, are you in? Then click the magic link:

My dear Friends, remember that my reward is your sweet comment, I need them so much! Thank you!

Love you all,

Blossoming Easter

My dear little Friends, Easter is approaching and this is the last week before a very important holiday that is celebrated this year at the same day by all Christians. Isn’t it great?

In Ukraine, last week before Easter is called Holy Week. This is a special week when people should find some harmony and peace with this world and with each other. No bad thoughts, no abusive language, no bad behavior, no alcohol, and etc. New beginnings come from endings, many people are able to draw a parable of their own lives and faith journey from the observances of Holy Week. We are given a chance to take a look around, to forgive and be forgiven, to experience the truth and honesty. Not even food restrictions are important as our souls purification.

The preparations for the Great Day are in full swing and many of you have a long to-do-lists. At this vanity of vanities I would like to come to your home as Easter Bunny and bring you some minutes of blossoming springtime I was lucky to observe during last weeks. Just click and relax:

“Easter is…
Joining in a birdsong,
Eying an early sunrise,
Smelling yellow daffodils,
Unbolting windows and doors,
Skipping through meadows,
Cuddling newborns,
Hoping, believing,
Reviving spent life,
Inhaling fresh air,
Sprinkling seeds along furrows,
Tracking in the mud.
Easter is the soul’s first taste of spring.”
Richelle E. Goodrich

Happy forthcoming Easter! May you be blessed and loved!

Dear Friends, do not you feel the first flavors of Spring. I believe that my new video and these spring colors will help you:

Aren’t these colors make your surroundings brighter and warmer. I love first touches of Spring, they are so innocent and fresh. Spring is long awaited, spring is already in our mind, heart and soul.  The most inspiring period, especially for me, since I am engaged in a new venture. I started to write an ebook about Ukraine. 10 stories spiced with interesting and unknown information as well as decorated with unique photos. What will you say? Would it be interesting to you? I appreciate your answer. Thank you.

Have a relaxing Sunday evening and successful forthcoming working week!

Love you all,

Yours Ann

Snow & I (Fun Time Series)

Dear Friends, as I promised you here a good choice for this weekend – my film. A new episode of Fun Time with Ann (with Ukrainian subtitles) devoted to snow, winter and fun. Where there is Ann, there cannot be a serious topic, though do not forget that I do usually talk unserious about serious. In every joke there is a piece of truth, right? Thus, this is a very serious work which took lots of my time and knowledge. I confess that this is the FILM I IMAGINED FIRST and only then filmed. I played it in my head before pressing record button. I guess better not to talk much and let you watch, and share with me your after thoughts. You know how much I treasure every your comment and like. They are vital muses for my creative and hungry mind, yeah, I am very hungry for your comments. Be generous!

Enjoy weekend and relax well!

Love you all,

Yours Crazy Director

P.S. What would you say if I tell you that I have a wish to write an ebook? Any ideas on topic? Looking forward.

Sunday Photo Quiz

My cute Friends, the best way to relax at Sunday evening is to look at these photos and answer me “what does you see?”:

“Anyone whose goal is ‘something higher’ must expect someday to suffer vertigo. What is vertigo? Fear of falling? No, Vertigo is something other than fear of falling. It is the voice of the emptiness below us which tempts and lures us, it is the desire to fall, against which, terrified, we defend ourselves.” (Milan Kundera)

“You cannot score a goal when you are sitting on the bench. To do so, you have to dress up and enter the game.” (Israelmore Ayivor)

Looking forward to hearing from you!

Love you all,
