April Fish!

Happy April!

Glorialana Magazine

Hello God!

Thank You for the 1st day of April. I invite you to celebrate today in charming French custom concerning this holiday.

AprilFish

The story goes that in 1564, King Charles IX of France passed the Edict of Roussillon, decreeing that henceforth the year would begin on January 1, instead of April 1. But some people failed to hear about the change and continued to celebrate the New Year on April 1. Therefore, people played pranks on them, making them April fools.

In France the fish is the primary symbol of April Fool’s Day. The association with fish is a bit enigmatic, but likely has its origin in the plentitude of young and easy-to-capture fish found in their rivers in April.

During that time, the 1st of April coincided with the end of Lent when the Church forbade Christians to eat meat. Fish was tolerated and was often used in the offering…

Requiem for 50

Hello God!

Thank You for Your Infinite Belief in us, humans. And sorry for our short memory.

The Breivik’s lesson was not fully learnt. We had had another one in New Zealand. The price is 50 innocent lives taken in the moment of praying.

The Requiem is for 50 lives and it does not matter that they were at the mosque.

We are humans.JPG“What are we doing, humans?”, I am reading our desperation in the sculpture by Jose Cobo. 

It is hard to understand but the killer was growing among us. He is a product of Western education which is based on the best humanitarian ideas. I am almost sure that his grandmother had sang him a lullabies and they were in a church at Sundays. He lived in a good house and worked as a personal coach in a fitness-club. Good middle class life he had. What was the trigger for him to became white “supremasist” and kill people? The paranoid desire to be great, celebrity? Had millions likes on social media page?

We are desperate because we will never know the answers.

Steps to grow.JPG

The photo, Calvari Steps in Pollensa, Majorca, visualizes the way we should climb up together overcoming desperation and pain. With the burning candles by the accords of Lacrimosa dies illa  – “This tearful day” we are ascending the stairs of mourning to the stairs of feelings of humanity, wisdom of understanding, virtue of accepting.

With great music we are uniting our beating of hearts. Laa-cri-mo-sa – we are singing together.

To watch the video is difficult because of pain but a new lesson we need to learn.

Tomorrow morning in a crowded metro we will help to a mother in hidjab with a pram,  we will buy this strange kebab with our habitual cup from Starbucks. We will be surprise by a grateful smile of a woman and we will feel a new taste of unknown, but delicious now, kebab. And by baby’s steps we will stop growing up a killers and any kind of “supremasist”.

Samuel Huntington was not right. There are no Western, Orthodox, Islamic and etc. civilizations. We are Humans Civilization.

Lacrimosa dies illa
Qua resurget ex favilla
Judicandus homo reus.
Huic ergo parce, Deus:
Pie Jesu Domine,
Dona eis requiem. Amen.

The Flower of Life

Hello God!

Thank You for My Grandmother! I am blessed by her to keep the Flower of Life.

My grandmother died today. I am not a granddaughter from today. She was 91 y.o. and she had a wonderful beautiful life. I am blessed by having so loving grandmother.

To write these words is difficult because how to find the right ones to express gratitude and sorrow.

To visualize my grief I’ve chosen this painting by Vesna Krasnec.

My grandmother is with closed eyes now.

I am the Keeper of The Flower of Life!

My duty is blooming and growing in Love.

I am happy.  I will be happy, I promise,

Sharing Happiness and Light with you

My grandmother had gifted me the Power.

Thank You for Your open eyes, thank You for Your support. I am felling your Handkerchief you are drying my tears with.

We live and we are all a keepers of the Flower of Life.

Gagarin Day

Happy Cosmonautics Day!

Glorialana Magazine

Hello God!

Thank You for today. Today is Cosmonautics Day!

Gagarin

On April 12, 1961, the Soviet spacecraft Vostok-1 lifted off from the Baikonur Space Center. Pilot-Cosmonaut Yury Gagarin, the first man in space, flew aboard that spacecraft.

Referring to all the inhabitants of the Earth to start on April 12, 1961 Yuri A. said:”…My whole life seems to me now a beautiful moment… It is hardly worth talking about those feelings that I experienced when I was offered to make this first-ever flight. Joy!” and … 5-4-3-2 Let’s Go!

YriiGagarin

That flight took just an hour and 48 minutes. Having orbited the Earth, Vostok successfully landed in Saratov Region of Russia. Gagarin ejected himself from the aircraft at the altitude of several kilometers and descended near the place of Vostok’s landing by using the parachute.

“Orbiting Earth in the spaceship, I saw how beautiful our planet is. People, let us preserve and…

Spring Waltz

Happy Spring!

Glorialana Magazine

Hello God!

Thank You for Spring. “The World is very old; but every Spring it grows young again…” We are all young and lucky to live and feel the Joy of Spring!

Let’s celebrate the season of new hope and of new beginning! I have chosen some dresses by the House of Dior, of course, because who has doubts in that Dior created Woman? We are going to whirl in a waltz by brilliant Johann Strauss in a beautiful dresses. And a happy Voice of Spring is really sweet and promising!

65.34.17a-c 0001

The lark rises into the blue,
the mellow wind mildly blowing;
his lovely mild breath revives
and kisses the field, the meadow.

64.256.2a-b 0001
Spring in all its splendour rises,
ah, all hardship is over,
sorrow becomes milder,
good expectations,
the belief in happiness returns;
sunshine, you warm us,
ah, all is laughing, oh,oh awakes!

May

A fountain of songs is…

Cold Water

Orthodox Christians celebrate Epiphany today with ice swimming! Happy Cold Water!

Glorialana Magazine

Hello God!

Thank You for Monday! As always a new life begins from Monday. Today is the first day of February and where I have been in January? I did not even notice how January gone.

4 weeks of celebration New Year have trapped my brain in the dangerous ice cellar. I was frozen and I was under the ice. I should say it is a rather dark place where brain is paralysed.

Baikal.jpg

Cold water helps me to escape my prison. While my brain was frozen I immersed my body in cold water. It was minus 18 degrees Celsius (-0.4 degrees Fahrenheit) when I wearing just my speedo bikini have dived in the hole in the ice.

So meet the morzh (walrus) – the Russian ice-swimmer!

You know I am here because of cold water. You are reading my words now because of cold water. I am really new. Adrenaline rush…

Praying for Vegas

Hello God!

Thank You for the strength you provide to keep us sane.

We are all praying for Las Vegas now.

Sorrow.JPG

I am wordless… Just the statues by Edith Breckwoldt in Hamburg speak for me.

The Truth.JPG

Mahatma Handi helps and gives us hope:

“When I despair,
I remember that all through history
the ways of truth and love have always won.”

The Ordeal.JPG

The Truth is in here:

“There have been tyrants, and murderers,
and for a time they can seem invincible,
but in the end they always fall.

Think of it – always.”

Prayer for Peace.JPGThe sculpture, Prayer for Peace, sends healing light that The Truth is really true and we all have Hope. Please, think of it – now.

We are all here praying for Las Vegas. And I am in the Light of Your Hope with you.
