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?”:

my-goal-0611

“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,

Yours Ann

Because the landscape has always been an integral part of my life, I have developed a deep sense of belonging to nature rather than feeling apart from it or above it.

(Clyde Aspevig)

Have you developed your sense of belonging to nature???

HAPPY HALLOWEEN TO ALL WHO CELEBRATES TODAY!

Do not forget that we are belong to our Mother Nature!

Love you all,

“Autumn…the Year’s Last, Loveliest Smile”

autumn-episodes

An absolutely brilliant quote is said by William Cullen Bryant. I respect wit and ability to notice the unusual sheltered in the usual. Autumn is the season that is not fully appraised. I would like to steal your free minute and look at this loveliest smile through the images I have recently captured. If you let me today my endless thoughts will be sealed with silence and each of you will have time to enjoy and compose your own thoughts that I hope to read in my comment’s table. Thank You!

“I cannot endure to waste anything so precious as autumnal sunshine by staying in the house.”  Nathaniel Hawthorne, The American Notebooks

autumn-2016

“October, baptize me with leaves! Swaddle me in corduroy and nurse me with split pea soup. October, tuck tiny candy bars in my pockets and carve my smile into a thousand pumpkins. O autumn! O teakettle! O grace!” Rainbow Rowell, Attachments

too-cute-to-spook

And Lady Jane Austen just read my mind:  “Her pleasure in the walk must arise from the exercise and the day, from the view of the last smiles of the year upon the tawny leaves and withered hedges, and from repeating to herself some few of the thousand poetical descriptions extant of autumn–that season of peculiar and inexhaustible influence on the mind of taste and tenderness–that season which has drawn from every poet worthy of being read some attempt at description, or some lines of feeling.”

What are your lines of feeling? Looking forward to hearing from you soon.

Happy forthcoming Halloween!

Yours Ann

Quote Challenge Day 3: My Shadow and I

Playful Wednesday, my little Friends! It’s a Quote Challenge Day No 3, already, so fast. Do you remember that my dear Friend, Maria from Maria Jansson Photography challenged me to participate in a three day quote challenge and I happily accept it. Here we go…

Rules are the following:

  • Post for three consecutive days
  • Posts can be one or three quotes per day
  • Nominate three different blogs per day

And you still do remember that I like breaking the rules (oh, pardon, not I, but my crazy imagination likes)!

My Shadow

“My shadow is better than I, it never changes herself, never complains, never mistakes, never dreams, it is always the same and always right”. (AnRo)

And what about your shadow? Isn’t it better than you are? Think about it and share with me your ideas! It is like a cup of fresh water for thirsty Ann!

I would not like to simply nominate every three blogs per day, I am intended to do something even more interesting. I just would like to introduce my nice friends and their blogs! All of them are great creators who inspire me for my posts! It is the last days and my last three names, however,I am not able to mention all of you, which is pretty sad, because all of you deserve my best compliments! Just ALL!

And you know what I am again changing the rules and nominate all of you! Each of you, yes, you, and you, and you, and you… my little Friends, you deserve my sweetest, warmest, kindest, and best wishes! All of you are very different and very creative people. You do inspire me for all my posts, even more, you give me a strong wish to surprise and impress you. You are the engine of my car!

Love you ALL!

Have a nice Wednesday!

Yours Ann

 

Quote Challenge Day 2: Child’s Face

Happy Tuesday, my little Friends! It’s a Quote Challenge Day No 2. Do you remember that my dear Friend, Maria from Maria Jansson Photography challenged me to participate in a three day quote challenge and I happily accept it. Here we go…

Rules are the following:

  • Post for three consecutive days
  • Posts can be one or three quotes per day

And you do remember that I like breaking the rules (oh, pardon, not I, but my crazy imagination likes)!

Little Girl

” I can endlessly look at a child’s face, whose innocence and curiosity can be only compared with yours, when you were of her age!” (AnRo)

Don’t you agree? Today, when you have some free minute, find your child’s album and take a look. I am sure you were even better than this cute little doll. And you were as innocent and curious as she is. But then Lady Life did a lot to change that look to this one…look at the mirror? What do you see?

I would not like to simply nominate every three blogs per day, I am intended to do something even more interesting. I just would like to introduce my nice friends and their blogs! All of them are great creators who inspire me for my posts!

Please welcome (do not miss a chance to visit their blogs, they are awesome):

“Food cooked without a smile is similar to life without being ever in love. Smile with every spoon of food prepared with love and passion!” (AnRo)

My sweet little Friends, I won’t be Ann if I do not not change some rules of the challenge. First of all, I dared to think of myself as one of the modern great philosophers, thus quote presented today and with every next picture will be mostly mine. Can you believe it? I know I am extremely immodest person, but now I am guided by my crazy imagination who can let herself anything, whatever she likes, I am not involved!
