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.

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.

Protective Circle

Circle us, God!

Glorialana Magazine

Hello God!

Thank You for Your Circles. The circle is a sacred figure – Sun and Full Moon are circles. You know what I have discovered today when I was thinking about this post – my eyes have two circles inside – big and blue one with a black spot in the centre. Of, course we see our face every day in a mirror but when we have seen in our own eyes consciously last time? I am feeling your eyes now and my wonderful knowledge about the circles inside your eyes keeps my happiness about our connection warm as a pancakes I have cooked in this Maslenitsa’s evening.

The cheerful circle of paintings of Russian artist Igor Shaimardanov “Pskov Maslenitsa” vibrates by a radiant protective waves. Save the moment inside you now and a shade of darkness  will not touch your heart with this memory.

Protection

Circle me, God.
Keep protection near

The Shortest Day

Magic Winter Solstice!

Glorialana Magazine

Hello God!

Thank You for tonight. We are celebrating the longest night of the year when the Goddess once again becomes the Great Mother and gives birth to the new Sun King.

“The winter solstice celebrates the return of hope to our land as our planet experiences the first slow turn toward greater daylight”, I am reading in “The Circle of Life” by Joyce Rupp and Macrina Wiederkehr, “…winter darkness has a positive side. As we gather to celebrate the first turn from winter to spring, we are invited to recognize and honor the beauty in the often unwanted season of winter.”

Let’s embrace winter’s darkness tonight. I have gathered “dark” photos to emphasise how beautiful winter is, and how much we are happy to live in this magical moment!

Winter Solstice

So the shortest day came, and the year died,
And everywhere down the centuries of the snow-white world
Came people singing…

4 Muses

4 Muses from Vivaldi will bring Inspiration and Joy for the weekend!

Glorialana Magazine

Hello God!

Thank You for Antonio Vivaldi. Everybody knows something about his great music. I have never met a person who does not know Vivaldi’s The Four Seasons, for example. Did you know that the four concertos were written with four sonnets?

Today we are lucky to have the unique possibility to see how Vivaldi’s genius is creating. Who helps and inspires him? On this magic scene Zoltan Molnos‘s paintings reflect the eyes of Vivaldi’s Muses.

Winter

Winter Concerto in f-minor

Winter Muse had come in purple… Purple is exactly for f minor. Allegro non molto as December, the first son of Winter, is sudden and unpredictable. My heart is beating is his tempo. My past pain dictates:

“Frozen and shivering in the icy snow.
In the strong blasts of a terrible wind…”

Tender and fragile violins before are frightening now. But my heart is beating in hope, past is in…
