“There is not one set path in life. Don’t be afraid to walk your own path, to follow your heart and passions. This is your life to create.” – Avina Celeste

Balance…

Live a balanced life – learn some and
think some and draw and paint and sing and
dance and play and work every day some. (Robert Fulghum)

Enjoy …

“We were made to enjoy music, to enjoy beautiful sunsets, to enjoy looking at the billows of the sea and to be thrilled with a rose that is bedecked with dew… Human beings are actually created for the transcendent, for the sublime, for the beautiful, for the truthful… and all of us are given the task of trying to make this world a little more hospitable to these beautiful things.”
― Desmond Tutu

 

Cities

“…Arriving at each new city, the traveller finds again a past of his that he did not know he had: the foreignness of what you no longer are or no longer possess lies in wait for you in foreign, unpossessed places.”
Italo Calvino, Invisible Cities

O Christmas Tree

Hi everyone,

Inspired by Malinda Kathleen Reese and her very funny google translate sings (e.g. “Shape of You” by Ed Sheeran), I wanted to share the google translate version of the German Christmas carol “Oh Tannenbaum” with you today.

Why not use these lyrics at your family get-together this year? A lot more entertaining than the proper translation…  Merry ho-ho-ho and enjoy the holidays!

O Christmas Tree O Christmas Tree,
How loyal are your leaves!
You do not only green at summer time,IMG_1016
no, even in winter, when it’s snowing.
O Christmas Tree O Christmas Tree,
How loyal are your leaves!

O Christmas Tree O Christmas Tree,
I like you very much!
How often does not have at Christmas time
a tree of you rejoices me!
O Christmas Tree O Christmas Tree,
I like you very much!

O Christmas Tree O Christmas Tree,
your dress wants to teach me something:
The hope and permanence
gives comfort and strength at all times,
O Christmas Tree O Christmas Tree,
Your dress wants to teach me something.
