A Magic Place

Last night, I was woken by the whispering sound of various voices. Curiosity paired with the need to go to the bathroom pushed me out of bed.

As I tiptoed into the living room I could not trust my eyes and definitely not my ears. What I saw and heard was just magic. Continue reading “A Magic Place | Day 23 | Advent Calendar 2016”

The Tale Of The Cursed Hat by Lucy Brazier

Once upon a time in a town far away, there lived a Hat-maker. His hats were the very finest hats money could buy and all the richest and fanciest people came from miles around to purchase his wares.

Great Blogging Events – Part 1: Weekly Events

Great Blogging Events – Part 1: Weekly Events

When I started blogging last year I quickly realised that there are various events that can tickle ones creativity, gain readers, find new blogs, build a blogging habit… Many of my readers found me through such events, and I found many of the blogs I read through events.

Her manager had been stern with her minutes earlier as she had not finished her presentation on time, could he not understand? There was too much going on today. Anja could hear every siren, every striking break and every honking horn in the street below. She could not concentrate on her work.

With her eyes closed she tried to slow down her thoughts, shut out the noise. She drew a deep breath.

Suddenly, she heard nothing. Not the ringing of the phone, not the laughing of her colleagues, none of the sounds that had driven her nuts all morning. Anja felt inner peace, her thoughts were no longer racing in disorder, her stress had evaporated. Continue reading “Of Finding Oneself”
