Love in Paris

Hello God!

Thank You for Paris. This city is special in my destiny. I with my Dream Man had decided to marry there. You know I love to return to this happy time because the good memory of the crystal clearness about our future together works. It, this memory, works really good in a cloudy times.

We were walking hand in hand and Paris was our love song our heart were singing in unison. As on these wonderful paintings by French artist Jacques Guignard.

She plays

She plays the violin in happy dreams about Love.

He Dreams

He asks the Moon to help in finding her.

Together

They are together now and the rain is dancing in a joy to see them under an umbrella.

Paris

Their Love is blooming in Paris. But who is in blue? Nobody, just shade of fear to loose the feelings.

River

The river Senna has taken out all fears and Love freely flows in their hearts.

WeddingDance

Their wedding dance is waltz of Love, of course, by Strauss.

Miracle

Miracle have happened. The embodiment of Love is on the way. “Salut!” their daughter will say in French, because of Love in Paris.

Thank You for your light smile and a small tear from your eyes because of sweet memory we have just relived again.

Snegurochka, Mizgir, Kupava

Hello God!

Thank You for love we all live in and love stories we create. As I promised tonight is devoted to fairy tale about Snegurochka again. Snegurochka’s love story is as old as Greek ancient world where Aristotle teaches us to love. And this story will repeat again and again…

Snegurochka, Mizgir, Kupava

Oh, la,la, all faces are familiar. Snegurochka (Julie Gayet), Mizgir (Francois Hollande), Kupava (Valerie Trierweiler) are on the stage tonight.

Snegurochka

Father Frost and Spring Beauty had a daughter, Snegurochka, whose heart was made of ice. Her heart was unable to know love. But she was young and beautiful and she wanted to live and know what love was.

Mizgir

One day a rich merchant came through town. His name was Mizgir, and he was young and tall. Mizgir stopped in the village, called to all the young girls, gave them nuts and spiced bread, and danced with Kupava. She was the belle of the town, parading around in velvets and silks, serving sweet wines to the youths and the maidens and living the joyful life. From that moment he never left town, and, it must be said, he soon became Kupava’s lover.

Kupava

Kupava had announced her own wedding to Mizgir. The ceremony took place, but then Mizgir noticed Snegurochka, and… became smitten with her, and begged her to love him. Yes, it was love from the first sight.

As we know Snegurochka was a creature from snow and ice. So she asked her mother, Spring Beauty, for help, but as flowers duly emerged under the Sun, the Snegurochka’s heart began to melt because of the fire of love. Mizgir had found her, and she was able to love him. They went to the Tsar, who blessed their marriage. But Snegurochka’s destiny was to die, having discovered the meaning of love. As she melted away, Mizgir, unable to live without her, threw himself into the lake.

TheEnd

There is no happy end in a love triangle story. All participants are wounded. Mizgir has lost his reputation. Snegurochka goes to a psychotherapist for antidepressants. Kupava has just left a hospital after heart attack. Nobody is happy and right here.

We are a mortal humans. Perhaps, to have the gift of discovery of the meaning of love is a good price for all pain and wounds?

Thank You for thinking with me.

Tasseography

Hello God!

Thank You for my tiny cup of coffee I am enjoying now. Something magical is in the air. Black as the devil, hot as hell, pure as an angel, sweet as love – Prime Minister of France Charles Maurice De Talleyrand said about coffee. We are indebted to great French travellers for much valuable knowledge about this divine beverage. Yes, the French know everything about pleasures of life.

“…The plant with the jessamine-like flowers is the most exquisite perfume of Araby the blest given to the human race by the gift of the Gods” I am reading in “All about Coffee” by William Harrison Ukers.

FortuneTelling

Today’s night, you know the period from 7 to 19, January is “Sviatki”, when a fortune telling is eligible and true, I dedicate to tasseography. Wonderful paintings of Harry Roseland create miraculous atmosphere for the fortune reading. Soft light and clear kind and tender faces of participants of this magic ritual promise a happy vision.

FortuneTell

Tasseography, also known as tasseomancy or tassology, is a divination or fortune-telling method that interprets patterns in tea leaves, coffee grounds, or wine sediments.

CoffeeReading

Psychologists approve the method as helpful – the process of tasseography stimulates the imagination to create individualized interpretations and solutions. Coffee reading is a fun, healthful and creative way to listen to yourself, they think. So let’s try!

FortuneReading

Do you know what I see in my cup? It is an apple! The symbol of apple means achieving new knowledge. Oh, that is true, I am incredibly happy to share with you tonight’s new knowledge about tasseography. I have never heard about it before.

Thank you for this possibility to share my world, it makes today worth to live.

King and Troll

Hello God!

Thank You for the Miracle of breathing and seeing our beautiful world. We are on the Pink Granite Coast. What’s the magician place! The King and the Troll are waiting for us.

PinkGranit

The Pink Granite Coast, so-called because of the colour of its rocks, is one of the most beautiful stretches of Brittany’s ( France) coastline. This type of pink rock can only be found in two other places in the world, Corsica and China.

Troll

Be wary of the loathsome troll
that slyly lies in wait
to drag you to his dingy hole
and put you on his plate.

His blood is black and boiling hot,
he gurgles ghastly groans.
He’ll cook you in his dinner pot,
your skin, your flesh, your bones.

Do you recognise your fear? Ha-ha, this funny stony troll is your biggest obstacle to live a life you want! Could you imagine that the troll’s tongue in Miley Cyrus style is your fear which is kidding on you?!

King

The Lion is Courage.
He is your King
You have forgotten
In the friendship with the troll.

Stone

The Path is difficult
But only yours.
The King will open you the door
The key is yours, it is Courage.

Stones

“Our route toward spiritual evolution is radiantly clear. We all have our own unique individual journey to walk toward enlightenment. Living on the brink of evolutionary change means that new ground is being broken and new consciousness is being raised. Truth is of the essence – we have no dogma, no set formula, no prescribed rules, no false standards to follow,” Linda Tucker is writing in her “Mystery Of The White Lions”.

Lighthouse

“All we have is the truth within our souls. I believe most of us want to follow the light, the path of healing and not destroying our earth, but we don’t have the courage, the lion heart, to follow our individual truth toward enlightenment. Giving in to our fears, we bury our “gold” beneath the false value systems of our societies, and we attempt to comfort ourselves with the notion that we have no power or responsibility for what is happening to our world. The reality is that, potentially, we all have the power of light – the Lion – within us. The very first step is to overcome our fears. Thereafter, our hearts will lead the way.”

The very first step is to overcome our fears. Thereafter, our hearts will lead the way – I repeat Linda’s words again and again.

Beautiful

Below I suggest you to spend just 5 minutes of your life for a wonderful and encouraging animation with magic music from Peer Gynt by Edvard Grieg.

You know the troll is just a picture my imagination have created. Have you really seen the troll? So, congratulations, you are in my company. We are here to overcome our fears. Thank you for sharing my way.

Loius Adventure

Hello God!

Thank You for Moscow. I love this city. I was studying and working there and it was the happiest time in my life. When the West is going to celebrate Thanksgiving, we have our own entertainments.

Loius

A Loius Vuitton trunk-shaped pavilion has appeared on the Red Square. The luxury brand said the pavilion was inspired by sketches of a trunk which belonged to Russian Prince Wladimir Orloff and had his monogram “P.W.O.” in large letters on the front.

theTrunk

The trunk was supposed to host the Spirit of Adventure exhibition of designer suitcases on December 2, but its fate already looks in doubt.

LoiusV

We, Russians, are so unpredictable and spontaneous. Louis Vuitton fashion house asked to remove the pavilion from Red Square almost in a day when it is was installed. The main reason of this authorities decision is unpatriotic advertisement of French fashion house on the main Square of Russia. But this summer Dior was allowed on Red Square. I said we are so unpredictable and spontaneous.

LouisVuitton

The pavilion is going to be removed to Park Gorkogo. It will be nice to have a possibility to see the Spirit of Adventure exhibition. I hope the adventure of Louis in Moscow will have a happy end.

Thank you for reading and sharing my hopes.

Sweet Rondo

Hello God!

Thank You for inspiring my parents to send me in a musical school. As a result I am a pianist and you know a lot of facets of life I see in a musical forms. Today I am inspired by Rondo.

SweetRondo

Rondo is an Italian word that means round. In music a Rondo is a piece of music which has one main theme, which is heard several times, and other musical ideas in between each time. If we give the main theme a label “A” and the other musical ideas “B”, “C”, “D” etc. then the form of a rondo can be described as ABACADA. The sections in between the main “A” section are called “episodes”.

Episode

In our Sweet Rondo the main theme (A) is Chocolate. Episodes are Marzipan (B), Praline (C) and Marmalade (D). Could you hear it: Chocolate, Marzipan, Chocolate, Praline, Chocolate, Marmalade, Chocolate? Mmmmouthwatering!

Rondo

So close your eyes and feel the pleasure of chocolate as it melts upon your tongue, feel the different episodes in our sweet rondo.

Thank you very much for sharing my inspiration and enjoining the moment with a cup of coffee and a chocolate candy. I am with you!
