Не бросайтесь словами

Не бросайтесь словами поверьте их потом не вернуть
И не изменят ничего ваши прости и забудь
Слова ваши возвести и сокрушить могут все мосты
Прoшу, не бросайтесь словами они живут у самой души

Cлова ваши могут согреть и могут спасти
А могут сто бед и обид с собой принести
Вам тогда не увидеть бьющих через край чувств
И не понять почему полный мир порой так пуст


Ведь только чувствами видим мы истины суть
И только словами можем приблизится к ней чуть
Но сейчас то ли языку, то ли душе не хватает слов
И только сердцем слышу истины я зов

Кричит Тишина

И кондилябры словно застыли и свечи
Вечер словно остановил все на веки
Дождя не допросиш он теперь немой как реки
И звезды как рыбы потеряли дар речи

... Но в эту ночь здесь кричит сама тишина
Гул такой будто воет людей толпа
Не пойму как может мыслей тишина
Быть пронзительней чем жестокие слова?

Добро

Говорят что миром правит только зло
Есть это, будет и было очень давно
Не боясь на всю жизнь заразится от зла
Люди на земле вершат темные дела   
Присмотритесь ведь за каждой дверцей
Живет добро у всех в сердце
Чтобы когда наконец решим искать
Себя во мраке зла не потерять

Живет оно там долго, живет как птица
Ей нужно помочь навсегда поселится
Поверьте добро у нас никому не отнять
Его как луч солнца можно только принять!

Ведь только добро на всей жизненной дороге
Спасти может от каждой тревоги
И только оно к нам однажды вернётся
Когда чье то счастье в нас отзавется

Visiting "Manet: Portraying Life" Exhibition

Two weeks ago I decided to go to Royal Academy of Arts (RA) in order to visit Edouard Manet's exhibition, but because of my laziness and busy days spent on various projects at university (but still more of my laziness) made me postpone my visit. Eventually, today I have stolen some time from my schedule and went to RA. "Manet's Portraying Life" is the first major exhibition in the UK devoted to the work of Edouard Manet. But most importantly, it is the first to focus on this practice as a portrait painter. Quite strange fact though, since Manet was a very committed portraitist throughout his career. Unlike his 'tokayo' as spanish love to say or surnamefellow Claude Monet, Eduoard Manet embraced more of a realist approach. And his elegant awkwardness of style established him as the father of modern art.

What is Happiness?

This is a question that has not bothered me for a very long time, maybe because I don’t know how to answer it precisely. Some people seem to be happy, but they do not think about it. Others just make plans to be happy. It is difficult to understand who is happy and who is not, because people rarely admit that. Few people have ever told me "I’m unhappy". Most say, "I’m fine, I’ve managed to get all I ever wanted". What about You? Yes You! What makes you happy? And please don't tell me you have everything that a person can dream of – a family, a home, work, good health. You do not mean that meaning of life is work, the family, children, a wife or husband, do you? And please do not change the subject...In order to see what other people think about this phenomenon I have asked a few friends of mine what is happiness and these are the answers:

"Happiness is love, love to people around us, love to the things we do, love to ourself. It is inside our soul, within us."

From Prison To Luxury Hotel

You may call it which way You want: interpreting a space or new way of marketing but lately some spaces that once were prisons converted into buildings that serve many purposes and some even into luxury hotels! Do not know what about You but I am not going, even if they have chairs from gold decorated with emeralds and diamonds.
  
Four Seasons, Turkey

At Sultanahmet, in an ancient city bounded by the mystic waters of the Golden Horn, Sea of Marmara and the Bosphorus, find 65 Istanbul luxury hotel rooms and suites housed in a century-old neoclassical Turkish prison. 


Why You Should Read It: Pride and Prejudice


One of Jane Austen’s greatest novels, and one of the greatest novels written in the English language, celebrates its 200th year anniversary this year, and this is why you should read it.

"It is a truth universally acknowledged that a single man in possession of a good fortune must be in want of a wife." -this is the first sentence of Pride and Prejudice and stands as one of the most famous first lines in literature!

My Gorgeous Birthday Cake!

I am finally sharing with You my unusual and insanely delicious 20th birthday cake. Probably there is no need to explain why my family has decided to design it this way: with Big Ben, me and an iPad in my hands with mom's picture set as a background, altogether located on two books... They say every detail matters, it really does.



Let It Snow in London

Finally in January snowfall made an appearance in London. Prior to this I could not resist my desire to play snowballs, so as soon as my lecture was over I went to the nearest park and had fun with my friends! ... London is beautiful under snow, but sometimes it is a bit depressing. Better to see sun in the sky but there is long time until summer arrives...



Eat Laduree, Pray, Love

In the name of world peace, I will not take sides to declare who invented macaroons because that really doesn’t matter. What matters to my palate is the taste of aristocratic macaroons -one of the most important contributions to humanity from the country that gave us Coco Chanel. It goes without saying that I am a very big fan of this boutique and luckily I am living very close to one of the destinations where you can get as much macaroons as you want. One of "a few" advantages of living in London I guess.


6 Minute Short Oscar-Nominated Film
