Beautiful motivation speech

A dear pen-friend of mine shared this motivation speech from Rocky with me.
It is just beautiful, so I am sharing it with you.

It made me think. When I am old, what will be my reason to stay alive?
What is my favorite thing that I have on this Earth?
Something, that is like an angel on my shoulder.

I've never watched the Rocky movies, I will watch them one of those winter weekend evenings.

Wolfie at the Lake

It is lovely to own Wolfie. I am never lonely on weekends.  
We had a fun day together, just the two of us. 
On the photo: tired 11-month-puppy resting by the lake.

Living Now

I admired this painting in the national gallery. It is a portrait of the family of a medical doctor, painted before 1835.  More then 180 years ago.

All the members of the family are long dead.
Did the couple have any additional children?
Did their children have children of their own?
Are their genes passed on or did the family die out?
It doesn't really matter.

All that each of us has is now.
So I will make the most of my day today. 
I will read a good book (I enjoy reading the third book about Cormoran Strike) and after the lunch we will go for a long walk with Wolfie.

Which reminded me of  my Wolf, master of living in the moment:

Wolfie is mastering this skill perfectly already too, and he is not even 12 months old.

Most of the people do

I watched the movie Saving Mr. Banks. I liked it a lot.

My favourite quote of the movie is when a taxi driver says: "I have a kid."
And Emma Thomson / who is playing the author of Mary Poppins says: "Most of the people do."

What a brilliant comment!

Beautiful video

Beautiful video of the streets I walked yesterday:

A beautiful painting

I finished work earlier today, so I could cycle to the city centre and visit our national gallery. It was just reopened after renovation and the entrance is free of charge this week, so I visited it.

I like many paintings there. But the one that I liked the most today was a painting "Woman drinking coffee by Ivana Kobilca".

I just love the expression on old woman's face. It looks so gentle, kind, at peace with life, enjoying in small things.  I would like to be the same.


I would add only: and a pair of good walking shoes.

Wishing you a lovely weekend.
