The great mistake













I am sure it is a great mistake always to know enough to go in when it rains. 
One may keep snug and dry by such knowledge, but one misses a world of loveliness.

Why do we go away?

.




“Why do you go away? So that you can come back. So that you can see the place you came from with new eyes and extra colors. And the people there see you differently, too. Coming back to where you started is not the same as never leaving.” 


― Terry Pratchett




I love to take photos with my iPhone during driving in a car - meanwhile my husband is the driver -  and I'm really a #Hipstamatic addict. This App is so creative and inspiring with it's thousands of possibilities.

Innocence

.


Every morning was a cheerful 
invitation to make my life of equal
simplicity, and I may say 
innocence, with Nature herself.

Mein Norden - das Gewitter zieht ab

.




Die Wolken

Seid mir gegrüßt, ihr Wolken!
Allwissende, denn Töchter
Seid ihr des Meers, und wisset
Was alles seine Tiefen
Geheimnißvoll verhüllen;
Und kaum geboren, steiget
Ihr in das Reich der Lüfte,
Und schauet auf den Menschen,
Den die Natur an's Erdreich
Gefesselt hält, hernieder
Aus schwindelhafter Höhe.
Wie euch beliebet, wallet
Nach Osten und nach Westen,
Nach Süden oder Norden
Ihr auf windschnellen Flügeln,
Und sehet Berg' und Thäler
Und Wälder und Gefilde,
Unabsehbare See,
Der Ströme Quell' und Mündung
Mit einem einz'gen Blicke,
Und seht auf Städt' und ihre
Unruhigen Bewohner,
Ameisenhaufen ähnlich,
Mitleidig lächelnd nieder.
Selbst tragt in euerm Schooße
Ihr Sturm, Gewitter, Regen.
Hier schnellt ihr Schlangenblitze,
Gefolgt von lauten Donnern;
Da schüttelt ihr die Wipfel
Erhabner Eichenwälder;
Dort strömt wohlthät'gen Regen
Ihr auf die dürren Felder.
Ihr spielet mit der Sonne,
Dem Monde und den Sternen,
Bald sie in voller Klarheit
Uns Sterblichen hienieden
Darstellend, bald in zarte,
Oft auch in dichte Schleier,
Wie's euch gefällt, sie hüllend.

Elisabeth Kulmann, 1808 - 1825

My North - the Beauty of June

.












 



."The beauty of that June day was almost staggering. After the wet spring, everything that could turn green had outdone itself in greenness and everything that could even dream of blooming or blossoming was in bloom and blossom. The sunlight was a benediction. The breezes were so caressingly soft and intimate on the skin as to be embarrassing."

― Dan Simmons









World Ocean Day

.





A healthy ocean requires robust global knowledge of ocean science. We cannot manage what we cannot measure, and no single country is able to measure the myriad changes taking place in the ocean.

the cute found

.








Two weeks ago we've spent holidays at Fuerteventura in a really beautiful villa. At the first day we've watched an adult cat passing the lovely planted garden. At the 2nd day while we were relaxing at the pool and terrace I heard some little kittens calling for their mom and we discovered these three cute kittens.





A bit too thin, very shy but enterprising and lively. We waited the whole day and the kittens too, but no mother returned. So we decided to feed them in the evening and they were so very hungry and thirsty.  And so we've done the whole week. They didn't leave the small area round the hole in the roof, but they played together and enjoyed the sun... and our nice food and the water.





The bad news after our holidays week is: the mother cat didn't return and we were sure these kittens are too young to survive without her. So we've informed our kind staff and Juanita immediately fall in love to them. She has assured that she will take care of the kittens. She's such a warm hearted person, that I'm sure, these story will have a



HAPPY END

softness

Softness triumphs over hardness, feebleness over strength. What is more malleable is always superior over that which is immoveable. This is the principle of controlling things by going along with them, of mastery through adaptation.

My North - never seen before











"To the attentive eye, each movement of the year has it's own beauty, and in the fame field it beholds, every hour, a picture which was never seen before and which shall never be seen again." 


-   Ralph Waldo Emerson




This time of the year with all it's fresh and crispy greens and the glowing yellow of the raps fields around us here in My North is so full of joy and hope. 

Wish you all a great long weekend, dear friends!! 


cordially yours, Isabella

Earth Day Every Day

.




 “Nature never hurries: atom by atom, little by little, she achieves her work. The lesson one learns from yachting or planting is the manners of Nature; patience with the delays of wind and sun, delays of the seasons, bad weather, excess or lack of water.”


 —Ralph Waldo Emerson






Let's celebrate every day a World Earth Day !!
