The sea



"I am for ever walking upon these shores,
Betwixt the sand and the foam.
The high tide will erase my foot-prints,
And the wind will blow away the foam.
But the sea and the shore will remain
For ever."

Sand and Foam by Kahlil Gibran


We returned after 8 years to our beloved Dalmatian island. Our favourite beach with perfect little stones and crystal clear sea is still as beautiful as we remembered. 

It is a pure luxury - having time for swimming and reading. I like the poem that I have just read so I am sharing it with you.

As every year, I published a Christmas wish last year:


I didn't get an email last December. But I got one a few weeks ago and I was so happy.

A young woman who is accepting her childless life finds comfort in reading my old posts. She wrote that she wants to see in my posts that I am OK. Because if I am OK, she will be too.

Am I OK?

I think I am! I try to be offline as much as I can and out in nature as much as I can. I attach two photos from the Julian Alps. A dear friend of mine (a mother of two) gave me a voucher for a day in the Julian Alps at the lake and the river & a voucher for a delicious ice cream as a birthday present. I spent a perfect day with her!

There are moments when I feel the shadow of sadness. Like when I came across the news of a famous model who became a mother at the age of 52. All the world's media quoted her sentence: "It's never too late to become a mother."    Really?

But most of the time I feel very comfortable in my skin.  It is also all the heartache and sadness that has made me the person I am today. I am kind and gentle. And I know the value of life, how priceless it is. So I try to make the most of mine.
