Merry Christmas to all of you!
I know, I have said it already many times, but it means a lot to me, that there are some people who I can share what I feel and what I see. When I read the book of Amos Oz called From Love and Darkness, it made me think a lot about myself. I could relate a lot to the main character who is social and mostly cheerful on the outside, but feels often lost and separated in her own world. Sometimes I feel the same, although not in such a big extent, and I try to work on it that this irrational feeling of disconnectedness and panic disappears from me.
It is important that one knows that he or she can turn to others, that there are others willing to listen. The last year was kind of weird, I had a diving accident (pressure vertigo) inside a lake, I broke my foot, someone broke my window...
But there were things also on the positive side: I got to know interesting people and cultures, I was traveling, I saw two famous galleries in one year (Zwinger, Uffizi). There were many small things...I re-arranged my flat again, and decided to move to a new place at the end of the year. Also job-wise this year was pretty good.
Let`s hope that the new year is holding many nice things in it. I decided that 2014 will be the year of portrait-photography for me. As the first step I am going to have a studio training on December 29th. I want to be happy and improve, get to know new people, get inspired, and most of all find more peace and stability in and around myself.
I wish to all of you the same that you find joy in the everyday, and love, or whatever you are longing for. That you can improve in fields which are important to you and find peace in your hearts while doing so.
