July

It has been mild summer so far but beautiful as well. Do you feel sometimes so delightful about the whole life that you cannot even embrace this delight? There is so much beauty in this world, so much love around, so much creation. Summer with my son. We spend days playing in the garden, picking raspberries and pea pods, wandering at the river and going to the seaside. He is a great companion and teacher. He taught me to stay in the present, to be always open to spontaneous joy, that everything is the matter of choice and nothing stays the same forever.

Wanders

Summer wanders in the woodland. From land to the land to the Peace and light.

Summer time...finally I feel connected and settled where we are. I took me a long time to find my way here (Scottish highlands). I learned though quite few mistakes. I do not try to fit anymore people and places where I do not belong with my heart. I understood that the best way to be happy is to follow my own pace and my heart.
 I have got the feeling that maybe, maybe I will start painting again. One breath at the time...
wishing you all beautiful summer

12

It is time of the year when there is so much daylight, when there is so much blossom and greenness everywhere. Time of warmth. Beautiful time to be born. Elliot is 1 now. 12 months have passed.





12 months of endlessly growing love, joy and....exhaustion. 12 months of learning new life, finding balance between holding and letting go, following my intuition. 12 months of bedtime stories, singing, laughter and being together. Sharing every moment together, staying in the present. He is my teacher of mindfulness.12 months of many first: words (mama and tata which stands for daddy in Polish), strawberries, paintings and drawings, discoveries of the world around him, joy and laughter and first solo steps on his birthday. 365 days of saying 'I love you' and 'goodnight'. 365 days of gratitude for him, for this gift of life.
Thank you Elliot.

Family adventures

Elliot and I went to Edinburgh few weeks ago. It was a beautiful, little journey which we made together. Traveling with a child as a companion creates a special bond between parent and child, creates a special and unique memories. Every day is a journey and I am delighted to create memories with my son, together.

We had time full of play at playparks, museum and  Summerhall. We played, we laughed, celebrated spring in full blossom our first one, with many to come,  together...

Juno

I have so many thoughts which I would love to share. They come and go during the day when I am with Elliot. They all spread out somewhere in the corners of my memory at the end of the day. In the result of that the best will be to post gratitude list (the thought came during breastfeeding, the best time to unwind).
Gratitude list. April:

soda bread-my first ever,
garden,
bonfires, fossils and 'Autumn' by Ali Smith,
'20th century women' movie,
every single day and moment spent with Elliot,
