Food for thought: simplify

13 Sep

Beautiful art, photographs and musings by Laarni Gedo

You know how sometimes you meet people who in the space of a few moments manage to impact you, even if it is in a subtle way? Well dear blog friends, that is what happened to me recently, when one of my guests caused a deep impression. She just mentioned that she painted and took photos (she also surfs and teaches), and gave me the link to her website, so I looked it up and bookmarked it for later viewing…

An then it happened. BAM! The word on her cover page: SIMPLIFY. It stirred something inside me, at a very deep level, and made me question what I am doing with my life and where I am going. Now during the week, I don’t have all that much time for such reflections, so I thought I’d save it for the weekend to digest this food for thought: simplify.

And while I checked her website, and also her Tumblr, I came across her beautiful paintings (this one here is my favourite), her gorgeous photos, and her wonderfully inspiring musings. Wow! I find them really thought-provoking and beautiful.

The one that accompanies this beautiful black and white photo goes: “Woman trust nothing but your heart and what it says — you will be ok.”

And the caption for this photo: “Love, in all the right places… this one made me smile and stay awhile on my way to rushing and hurrying to get somewhere, as if to say, “slow down, love a little”.”

Maybe these ‘messages’ stir just me, and others lie in waiting for you, so why don’t you check out Laarni Gedo’s website and her Tumblr blog and see what it offers you? Have a wonderful weekend everyone!

Barcelona's Spring cloudy skies

Passeig de Colom

Spring in Barcelona can be a little fickle (like in most parts of the world) and often brings cloudy skies, rain and chilly temperatures. Such will be the weekend weather according to those in the know, but that doesn’t mean you have to stay indoors… there is beauty in those cloudy skies too!

With any luck, the rays of the sun will be able to perforate the overcast skies and bits of blue make an appearance. Fingers crossed for dry evenings though, because I am going to do some al fresco dining this weekend… I’ll tell you more about it soon!
