Courage to talk about Hungary

I haven’t talked about my courage list for a while (and an update is brewing) but one of the points on there was to talk about my political opinions just as openly as about everything else. So I’ll grab the occasion to talk about a lady who doesn’t shy away from doing something against injustice: …

How to keep a man and other madness

Have you ever seen the numerous posts, books, programmes that promise women to teach them about men, about how to build a relationship, how to make them connect sexually?  

Posts you need to read

Like my writing, my reading is quite irregular. Sometimes I don’t visit for weeks and once I’m back, I don’t understand why I’ve ever left. You folks do faboulus things here, you keep things real, authentic, exciting and inspirational. Let me share a couple posts I especially connected the last week:

‘We Are The World’ Blogfest: “In darkness, be the light”

Do you ever sit in front of your TV, newspaper, news site, feeling sad, angry, discouraged about the status of the world? You’re not alone. I don’t believe that it is the reality. There is so much good, inspiration and love out there, but unfortunately it doesn’t get enough stage time in media. The ‘We…

Books of the year so far

  Books are my favourite things ever. I often think that if I’d lived in the times before writing, I’d have either broken the rules to learn it or would have sat around the fire every night to listen to the tales of the villagers. Today we have an extreme amount of choices for reading…

The first

It’s the first day of the month, and more than that, it’s the first day of the second half of the year. Time to stop and ponder, where are we and where do we want to be?

The creative doubt

Artists are famous for their self-doubts (some more public, some less so) but it’s not an artist’s privilege – we all question whether we are good enough.

Photo of the week: Peacefulness

I can hear the quiet looking at this picture. Even with the memory of the incessant frog-choir, it was peaceful harmony. I felt me there.

A short skirt…

There are many reasons for people to have fat. Only a few has anything to do with laziness and willpower. I’d like to put this out there.  What’s it got to do with skirts? Well yesterday wearing a short dress brought up some long-forgotten fear in me that I didn’t expect. I never wear short…

I’m a writer (Coursera assignment)

When do you think one has the right to say “I’m a writer”? Once they are published? Once they get paid for writing? Once they do it regularly? I didn’t feel for a long time that I was allowed to say I was a writer even though I’ve been writing since I learned the letters. The books came…

Favourites of this week’s photo challenge, Focus

The weekly photo challenge from WordPress this week was to show in-focus and out-of-focus moments. I love browsing through the responses and I thought I’d share the ones that really captured me.
