Strange Summer

I wonder. Where the sun is? Where the sun went this year? Did somebody got some? Or did everybody had to find it elsewhere than in the sky?

Summer did not go according to plans. It was one of this strange summer, taking hours as they come, with no sandcastels and many raincoats days.

I am longing for hot chocolates and warm jumpers, for spiced tea and movies on sunday afternoon!

2021 is and will be – it seems – till the end a very special year. Not one we will remember with sparkles in our eyes. And yet, somewhere it gave us something. I am not sure how to describe it yet. But it will come.

We will overcome the grey and messy days. We will find our strenght back, somewhere between what we wish and what we have.

An invaluable lesson

Face to face

The Lioness bewitched

Enjoy your day!

It’s up to us

As days are becoming brighter
Everyone is hoping for a new start
In this long and everlasting battle

And if
Instead of waiting for the world to make a move
We took the chance to open the window
Bring our smiles on the scene
Let go of expectations
And not just hope for better days
But fully appreciate the little things
And make tmore of them

Heart and soul ready for a new ride!

Only the beginning

***

No more projects
Was this true?

Freedom of being
Doing what feels right

Acceptance of what is
Enjoying moments as they come
And go

Freedom of testing
Taking pleasure in the making

Projects are alive
Objectives belong to the past

And this is only the beginning of a brand new life…
