such great heights

they will see us waving from such great heights

come down now, they’ll say

but everything looks perfect from far away

come down now but we’ll stay

– iron and wine, such great heights

peanut butter cookies are one of the best ways to start a sunday.

while they are in the oven, the house starts to smell yummy and when they are done (which takes 10-15 minutes) my coffee is ready, too.

this sweet peaceful feeling┬áreminded me a tv show i used to love to watch: providence. it was about a family, with the daughter in center, with all their fun and difficult times. i would love to watch it again but i can’t find it anywhere. i would be really thankful if there’s anyone reading this post can help me about that. it’s the only thing i’m missing in my perfect sunday ­čÖé

thank you and happy sundays!

p.s. for the┬ácookies in the picture┬ái used kathy patalsky’s vegan peanut butter cookies recipe from her blog healthy happy life.

blossom

IMG_2114_1024

the seasons cycle turned again

an april shower now and then

trees came alive

and the bees left their hive

they came out to see you and the blossom

-nick drake, blossom

never miss the chance to make a noon walk under cherry blossoms.

thank you spring!

 

house by the sea

IMG_1354

there is a house by the sea

two jealous sisters, they’re waiting for me

and one is laid on the floor

and one is changing the locks on the doors

and i’ve been buying the time on my knees

and i’ve been selling their blankets to bleed

around the house by the sea

the scent of roses and raspberry leaves

and there is smoke in my clothes

too much time with just smoke in my nose

and i’ve been making the meaning they lack

and i’ve been burning that book they come back too

there is a house by the sea

and an ocean between it and me

and like the shape of a wave

the jealous sisters will sing on my grave

and i’ve been living to run where they led

and i’ve been dying to rise from their bed

and i’ve been sparing my neck from their chain

and they’ve been changing the sound of my name

and i’ve been swimming to them in my sleep

and i’ve been dreaming our love and our freedom

-iron and wine, house by the sea

this song means to me that the time to prepare for leaving my office has come, especially in spring and summer evenings.

i finalize the last things i need to do, shut down my computer, look out of my window to the sky and the street.

the weather in these evenings is usually mild, warm and breezy; people – most of them students – are walking down with no rush, talking, laughing, also breezy.

i make my dinner plans, and before i close my office door, i hear the final notes from this mystic distant house by the sea.

who says mondays are hard in spring ­čÖé

ocean of noise

IMG_0994

in an ocean of noise

i first heard your voice

ringing like a bell

as if i had a choice, oh well

left in the morning

while you were fast asleep

into an ocean of violence

a world of empty streets

you’ve got your reasons

and, me – i’ve got mine

but all the reasons i gave

were just lies to buy myself some time.

-arcade fire, ocean of noise

i went outside, grabbed a cup of coffee and looked above.

breathe in the fresh air, buy yourself some time – happy lazy cloudy sundays!
