    End-of-year wishes

    I haven’t been much active on this (or any other) blog lately but I wouldn’t want to miss out on this last post of the year. May it be somewhat personal? You know, I could count the reasons and excuses for my absence here readily but in the core, there definitely lies shortage of discipline and motivation. I don’t function well based on swings of mood, I need plans, deadlines and visions. Then I make progress, then I am creative. Abandoning the planning and dwelling amidst doubts, negative thoughts and lazy attitudes have always led me into the hell of rejection and it is so easy to get tempted to…

    Merry Christmas

    I thought I would not create any Christmas post this year but here I am as I could not resist the tugging of the moment. I find the Christmas card I’ve created this time to be soft and peaceful and playful and those characteristics reflect both my feelings and my wishes to you. Enjoy the Christmas time in a peaceful and relaxed way and get all the energy it offers. MERRY CHRISTMAS!

    Christmas wishes

    Christmas will be here in just a few days so before you become absorbed in final preparations and Christmas festivities, I’d like to wish you Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays. When I was looking for some wise words to share with you on this special occasion, I came across the following quote by the comedian Demetri Martin. It made me laugh and feel the mirth and I thought, why not something funny for a change? Here it goes: “I set a personal record on Christmas. I got my shopping done three weeks ahead of time. I had all the presents back at my apartment. I was halfway through wrapping them,…

    Merry Christmas

    As I invested many hours within last several months in moving and merging my blogs here, I skipped writing many intended posts and shooting many intended photos, but finally all is ready here to be continued. I’m looking forward to my next blogging and photography adventures and I hope that they will be enriching not just for me but also for you who come to visit my blog. I still have quite a few photos to be shared, a few reflections to be pondered over and I plan another photo project for next year to further develop and enhance my photography skills, I will tell you more about it in…

    Here we are again, at the end of another year. Nobody knows what the next year holds for them and how they’ll be able to embrace that. It’s time to wish one another strength, health and happiness and it’s high time to send New Year cards to our friends, families and business partners. Someone celebrates the last day of the year as a milestone, others refuse to see anything special in it, but the truth is that the date changes and we need to get used to that new number… I’ve posted New Year cards in this blog since 2011 and just a few weeks ago I was made aware…

    2014 is over and when I look back at it, I can see so many things that challenged me, enriched me and pushed me forward. We may be a year older but also we are a year more experienced and that counts. I became strongly aware of the fact that circumstances of our lives are never ideal but offer us many chances to grow personally and follow our dreams. And learn or develop something we should have done years ago but perhaps needed to grow up to it. I didn’t share many posts on this blog in 2014 but I’m pleased to say that I successfully finished my 52-week photography…

    Happy Easter

    I have one more photo from Rabštejn nad Střelou which I want to share with you, I saved it for this special Easter occasion. Easter is a symbol of hope and generosity to me and the hallelujah it sings gives strengths and humility, both of which we need. Enjoy the Easter days and let them fill you to the brim. Happy Easter! Bůh s Tebou – God be with you

    At the close of the first day of this new year I’d like to send my best wishes to you and accompany them by words that I find very wise: “Live your life each day as you would climb a mountain. An occasional glance towards the summit keeps the goal in mind, but many beautiful scenes are to be observed from each new vantage point.” Harold B. Melchart Beauty and inspiration often lie in the ordinary so let’s keep our eyes, minds and hearts open and enjoy that all. A Happy New Year!

    The end of this year will arrive in two days and although I usually don’t make a lot of fuss about it, this turn makes me look back. It was an enormously difficult year for me to deal with and challenged me in many ways. There is a saying in Czech stating that things are never so good so that they couldn’t be better and never so bad so that they couldn’t be worse. So I tell myself that perhaps I should be grateful that things were not worse and hope that they will be better. I was watching “The Lord of the Rings” film series a few days ago…

    Easter Wishes

    A few weeks ago I visited the city Plzeň, holding my camera tightly and eager to take a few photos. Cold wind was blowing while we were strolling through the city and the city looked quite gloomy. Nevertheless, when sun emerged among dark clouds, the atmosphere changed dramatically. A prominent contrast appeared and conjured wonderful scenes… I like the contrast in the photo as it suits Easter perfectly. The darkness of Good Friday lightened by the hope of the Resurrection, no words needed… Wishing you a blessed and happy Easter!
