*October light




I love how the light is changing in the seasons.
The later the year, the lower the position of the sun
and the more the sun comes actually into the rooms of our home.

Everyday the leaves of our birches turn a little more yellow,
and soon no leaf will be left on the fine black branches.

My dear old neighbor lady passed away.
I can feel her presence with me since.

As always there is so much I would like to say,
but my words are stuck. I wonder if that knot is ever loosening.

Have a cozy Halloween!

*with the wind and cherry trees


{Music: Wherever you are – Angus & Julia Stone}

One of my favorite places – 
the cherry tree plantation.
As kids we always climbed up the big cherry tree in our garden
and played Star Trek, the original series with captain Kirk, of course. :)
The tree was our spaceship.
And like so many children I fantasized about living on a tree.

*at times





At times
I feel like a deer
in a very small forest
surrounded by streets
 full of fast cars
and unpredictable humans.
The noises make it jump
from one end to the other –
perpetually.
Constantly being on the alert,
never finding rest.

*Mired in fog


{Music: Lighthouse – Patrick Watson}

Leave a light on in the wild
Cause I'm coming in a little blind
Dreaming of a lighthouse in the woods
Shining a little light to bring us back home

When to find you in the backyard
Hiding behind our busy lives
Dreaming of a lighthouse in the woods
To help us get back into the world

Cause I know
I've seen you before
Won't you shine
A little light
On us now

Won't you shine a little light
In your own backyard
Won't you shine a little light
In your own backyard

Dreaming of a lighthouse in the woods

*softly




Softly as in a morning light.

*September


{Music: Au dessous du volcan Yann Tiersen}

We had so many sunflower fields this year in our surrounding
and when they started to wither with all their different brown tones
and hanging heads from the weight of all the seeds, they looked even more beautiful.

 What is pain
after all.

*sunny days




We are having some really nice, sunny autumn days right now.
Ideal to make some last preparations in the garden and home before winter is coming.

*home


Making those little movies gives me the opportunity
to share some of my favorite music.

This song is from the brilliant composer Max Richter
and is called Horizon Variations.

*end of summer

End of summer in my vegetable garden.


{Music: Je te Laisserai Des Mots Patrick Watson}

The big green fruits in the greenhouse are from my luffa plant.
I am still waiting to be able to remove the sponge.
Hope it will work again!

Have a nice Sunday!

{Note: If there pops up any advertisement in my movies, 
then it is because I use music from other artists.}

*pastel ocean




 
 The last pictures of our Croatia trip.
The rocks have been so warm from storing the day sun.
The pastel colors, so soft and delightful.

September has gone by so incredible fast.
I made some more little movies
that I will upload soon.

So stay tuned and enjoy the new season!

*between olive trees





In the south
the evening light
feels even more magical.

*Sveti Duh & surrounding






This part of island Pag did not feel like Croatia at all,
it felt more like Egypt or another distant land.
The dark clouds looked amazing above the white of the hills.
The water was clear and refreshing.

*underwater






 We could not do as much snorkeling as we planned to, 
because of the weather and the temperature of the sea,
but the times we did were really calming.
The ones who know me better, are aware that I love to be underwater.
Water will always be my element.
My zodiac and moon sign are both water signs.
I'm always positively surprised about the outcome of disposable cameras.
Have a nice Sunday!
