The last few months have been a spiritual awakening experience. It sounds weird or new-age hogwash to say it but I just feel it. I don’t know how to verbalize it. But there’s no denying I am living in a new kind of world. I’ve been trying to make sense of it and learn as much as I can. But like with everything in life, you just have to go with the flow and the mysteries of life will unravel on their own. My absence has been deliberate. I started questioning everything I am doing in my life and online including this dear blog of mine. I won’t apologize for it but I hope you understand that sometimes one has to run away from it all to reflect and digest things. I feel like Pocahontas. I alluded to it on my Facebook post last December. “Can you paint with all the colors of the wind?” Can you? Are you awake? Conscious? Can you talk to trees? Being surrounded by the beauty of nature has been a major part of my spiritual awakening. Plus being surrounded by magical friends (shoutout to you Vicky!) In the last months I have travelled with my friends to gorgeous Croatian islands and waterfalls, quaint Slovenian countryside, magical Sicilian coves to the dreamy Sahara desert and a quick trip in Madrid to see my gay friends for Halloween. And I am not even mentioning my annual birthday trip which we did for the last 2 months around the world with my husband. The world is abundant in beauty. In everything. Here’s a quick photographic snapshot of our travels.
