Myths and Legends…

Rome has had many faces over the centuries, always evolving, forever finding a way to stay current while honouring her past…   Photos taken by Pamela with a Nikon 5300 DSLR while in Rome, Italy. October 2017

Pictures…

Over the years, as I busied myself with improving my mental health and helping those who helped me, I found less time to paint. I started taking pictures instead. Sometimes they are artistic and sometimes they are just little snapshots of everyday life. It started out as a way to catch moments in time that…

Tired on Tuesday…

tired because unruly kittens are running amok at night. The kittens were roughly 6-8 weeks old when we got them and very tiny. To keep them safe at night and while I was away from the house, and also to keep Sheba from being bothered since she wasn’t feeling well, I devised a crate system…

Stone Flowers

I finally imported the last batch of photos from my camera onto my laptop. Among them are my last trip to Bulgaria (last summer/autumn 2017) and the trip to Rome shortly after. ¬†We went to Hungary and Romania as well but it seems I didn’t managed taking photos while in Budapest (I was sick, the…

Goals (Part 2)

Goal #1 was to publish a blog post on a daily basis…so far so good. I am not sure what Goal #2 will be…yet. It’s a work in progress. I did vow that my life would be different after this move. I wasn’t planning on ever moving back to the States but hey…never say never…or…

The Creative Brain Blues….

I have realized that although I don’t lack talent, I do lack certain other things that are crucial to success. This has just recently come to my attention and it smacks a little bit of self-sabotage. Surprise! Surprise! I am not alone in this. My brother is right there with me. It appears that we…

Syncopation Stress…

I had hoped that my four year exile to India would help allieviate some of my “love language obligations” and in a way it did. It also exacerbated the root of the issue and threw me into a state of limbo. I had less obligations, which I thought would allow me more free time to…

The Placeholder Problem…

Just to clarify…I am not angry with any of my friends or family, I am not going to leave anyone high and dry and cut them out of my life. This is my issue, I got myself into it and I will get myself out of it. You might be wondering how exactly I got…

Goals…

I need to set some realistic and obtainable goals. I posted awhile back that I had felt defeated and in some areas of my life, I still do. The big one being my plans for Stara Planina Meditation Center. It is my Ultimate Goal but I am having a hard time obtaining it at the…

Ebb and Flow…

We are approaching the end of a month and a season not to mention a time where, personally, I notice the light change and for whatever reason that triggers bipolar episodes. The fact that I am aware of this causes some apprehension and I admit that I become a bit hyper vigilant over the years….

Defeated…

I have been feeling defeated lately and so I have stayed away. I try to stay optimistic; look for the silver lining; find the lessons to the problems and usually that works but lately that hasn’t been the case. In addition to feeling defeated, I also feel unheard and just a bit invisible and I…

The Curve Ball Conundrum…

Why is it when you are trying to get back to things that need to be done (in this case blogging) Life decides it is going to throw you a curve ball? This has been my conundrum since my last post. I felt great about the prospect of things slowing down, we were all settling…
