When I started this blog, I had zero idea of wordpress or blogging in general. It turned out to be something I really enjoy. And most important, meeting likeminded people here , broadening my horizon even…how wonderful.
There is this one person here on WordPress, of whom I knew a wonderful, wonderful YouTube Clip, The “Pebble in your Pocket Meditation” many months before starting this blog.
Then exactly this person’s blog is the first I ever get stuck with and just a few months later, this wonderful, mindful, creative, unique person nominates me for a blog Award. How can I not feel honoured…and how can I not accept it?
So thank you very much, David!
I know somebody has nominated for the Award yet, but please let me nominate you right back, too, because your blog is beyond amazing.
To accept the Award, I have to do the following things:
1. Post the ABC Award logo on my site
2. Write an ABC list that is relevant to who I am
3. Nominate others for the Award
Posting Award Logo: check!
My personal ABC-list turns out to be like this:
Artmaking is something I enjoy doing and which keeps me in the here and now
Buddhistic teachings – so peaceful, so deeply philantrophic and a truly rich and deeply experienced form of psychology to me
Creativity is intelligence having fun – a saying I really like 🙂
Drinking tea just to drink tea – my evening ritual after sitting Meditation
Eftalou is a place on the Island Lesvos, Greece, I will never Forget.
Forgiving yourself and others -a real gift and a real challenge at times
Green is my favourite colour – since kindergarten times
Hesse- one of my very favourite authors
Insight – this is what I sometimes have, sometimes don’t have during sitting Meditation
Joy – something precious, something you can share in abundance and it multiplies.
Kunsttherapie is the German word for Art Therapy and I just got accepted as a art therapy Trainee at college- for which I am very grateful
Loggia – my happiest place in the apartment
Meditation – sitting Meditation has become as natural as brushing teeth. I will take my zafu on every trip, even to a sleepover with friends
Never thought It’d take so Long to come up with this Alphabet Poem 😉
Often is a word I use way to often (you see?) and which tends to be a bit attaching here and there…oh well
Painting – is a way to be mindful to me
Quiet – a Quality
Reading – a Passion.
Sea – I love to go visit the sea and spend time at the beach, listening to the waves and doing my “pebble top ten Beauty contest ” 🙂
Thich Nhat Hanh’s Dharma talk on the 2nd of June touched me deeply.
Under the stars – each summer I want to sleep outside under the stars and watch the sky til the eyelids drop.
Vino is not only the word for wine but also the Name of a Pony I wanted to buy aged 11 as soon as I won the lottery (never happened)
Where is my next roadtrip /hiking trip going is a fun question to ask
X strikes me as a difficult letter to be creatively writing about myself here
Zafu – my dear Meditation cushion, has travelled the world with me (so far, Europe, but we’ll see to that)
Here are my favourite Blogs – each of them touching my heart, making me thoughtful or happy, each one is deeply inspiring
