Wind blows


One of the girls I met in London blog and her weaving works combined with my life in Klaipeda inspired this. The wind, the sea...ships...and lines.

Joy of Reading


I have been reading a lot recently. Books are windows to other worlds - they can take to places you have never been and make your life more exciting:))

A friend of mine has a whole blog dedicated just to books. Here it is: https://gribook.wordpress.com/

Life is a fasinating journey where we are lead to places we could have never thought about, encountering people we could not otherwise have ever had a chance, being taught lessons we could have never imagined.

In the Alps

This summer two friends of mine - Vaida and Bogdan  went to work in Swiss Alps with cows and cheese.

Šią vasarą du draugai praleido Šveicarijos Alpėse, kur dirbo ūkyje su žalmargėmis ir sūriu...:)

Tea time!

For my 24th birthday we had several pots of tea, different pies, other snacks and poems to share.

Sharing is caring


Sharing is caring. This one is about what I learned from living in the community. Thank you friends for caring!

Fields of Gold

Winter is over now
The blossom's on the tree
now I can breath.

The Snow's all gone from the ground
where no life could be found
But I can see green
New life can be seen again

Did you hear that summer rain sing?
When you knew, new life could be begin
you planted a seed, just to watch it grow
into a Tree of life

Hoping, you could be walking
in those fields of Gold
Where the skies are always blue.
The fruit is on the tree
It looks so sweet!

But when your roots are dry,
and your suffocating,
Just put aside the earthly things
that have kept you bound,
and be fruitful

It's Love, Joy, Peace, Patience,
Kindness, Goodness, Faithfulness, 
Gentleness and Self Control
Tree of Life

Worldviews


Inspired by my Theology class.

A long time ago, perhaps in Middle Ages or in Renaissance... before the Enlightenment Period, people believed that the Earth is flat. They wanted toreach the sky. The moon, the sun, and the stars were thought to be hanging somewhere above, at the top of the sky.
People believed that they live in some sort of a bowl. If they really really wanted, they could reach the sky. That's where the story of Babel kicks in. People started building a tall tower to reach the top of this world.

This picture is about them - from the past and their perception of the world.
