My new cute lil hammy <3

Few weeks ago I got a present for my friend, a cute, copper yellow, syrian hamster, which was a couple weeks old. I got him from a breeder, which had around 20 of those small lil animals in a tiny box where they were crawling on top of each other. Since I wasnt really planning to get him that day, I wasnt prepared, I had no cage or anything to carry him in… So the lady gave me an icecream box, which I put him in. Thats how we rolled home. Thats why I named him Tortik, which in russian stands for cake.. He’s adorable. And now I have two roddents: a hammy and a guinea pig. I only need to add a bunny, a chinchilla, a degu, a rat, a mouse and a squirell to complete my collection. Lol

Romantically Apocalyptic Winter

Winter is not just dark nights and cold days. Nor is it a just a cozy time spending with relatives. For me winter is associated with silence and peace, the type of silence of the mind and of the emotions one experiences standing on the white, covered in snow field, which stretches out into infinity. The sun is high, the sky is blue, the snow diamonds are glittering and shinning in cold, still air. The spruce trees are transformed into magical, unrecognizable objects of imagination. As time stands still, the nature seems frozen, wild and forgotten – this vision of timelessness brings ultimate peace upon the contemplator. Past, future: none of that exists – all is buried under the white, purifying, glowing particles of water, that are formed in the shape of star of David. The desolate, empty landscape of sharp, whiteout light is providing a space for unity between man and nature. Witnessing this kind of winter is a fantastic, grand experience of freedom and liberation of the mind from the daily, hectic, often meaningless activities. I could roam these spaces endlessly, feeling in sync with the universe around. Here are some nostalgic images of Russian spacious, continental winter.

Focus and feel the lack of limitations:

A thin line between courage and madness

I’ve injured my foot on the weekend, and spent my entire Saturday at a hospitals waiting room. Luckily I’m okay, although I am limping like a Quasimodo lol. So while I bummed around on a couch, I stumbled upon some videos, which are as visually compelling as they are frightening. They got me thinking about […]

“You never know…” poem by Vsevolod Rozhdestvensky

Poetry, a sidelined art that is like music, emotive and touching, has always been my passion… Maybe because I’m a granddaughter of two poets, and poetry speaks to your very soul. I don’t mind spending my evenings translating poems that have touched my heart. Here is my attempt to translate a poem by a Russian […]

The Assault

Digital art by LordHayabusa357 “It gets Harder from Here on Out” http://fav.me/d7bk6mw I think I might have talked too much about soldiers yesterday, cause I had a weird dream. I dreamt that I was a part of an elite military unit. We were in a city paved with yellow cobblestone, the sort you might find somewhere […]
