She was always fond of the stars. I could tell by the way she would glance up at the night sky every time she would slip out of the car, or merely step out on the bar’s balcony for a cigarette. She’d stand there in silence, ignoring the chatter of the music, dark eyes gleaming with amusement; pondering the universe, the galaxies. Meandering in her own Lilliputian world of what ifs; and so, she would come back to reality with a visage of sadness, a diminutive frown of regret, as if she wished to be somewhere else, somewhere beyond the stars. She didn’t belong here.. and neither did I.

Before Siri, I Was the Only One Telling Randy Were to Go
Our daughters claim they never heard us argue when they were children - unless we were traveling. I remember those days. Randy would be driving the 32-foot motorhome and I would navigate, or at least trying to because, as some of you know, I am directionally challenged. Maps and I don't get a long very well. These were the days before GPS and Google Maps. The only person telling my husband were to go was me and sometimes it wasn't in a sweet voice like Alexa.
Green lanes in the UK

Urban Foraging for Wild Souls
Many people have no idea just what kind of abundance exists right in their back yards. Urban foraging is a fun and easy way to learn about local ecosystems, beneficial and medicinal plant species, and for teaching children about the importance of our natural world. As our country - and world - become more urbanized, we have to actively search for little pockets of nature where ever we can.
Tribal art is a heritage that must be preserved and promoted.
Tribal art is a heritage that must be preserved and promoted. The concept of tribal art is one of the most controversial issues in art circles. Another name that passes through primitive art: it evokes myths from colonial superiority, the supremacy of Western culture and looking at the works of art from other cultures as intrinsically lower, it should only be observed as curiosity, a product of an undeveloped society. In spite of that, the influence called Tribal Art has had in Western artists in the twentieth and 21st century, has been so great, has given birth to a large number of new movements and forms of expression, which possibly cannot pass Overl, nor is it seen as inferior.

All You Need To Know About Travelling To Austria
Did you know that Austria was the first country to publish postal cards? The idea was then adopted by various other countries. Austrians are said to have the highest standard of living in the world and the paid holidays for a month may or may not have been the deciding factor. My trip to Austria was the gift I gave myself on my 28th birthday. I had always admired their way of living and wanted to experience it first-hand. With my birthday coming up I wanted to spend it differently than I had. I booked the tickets a month in advance and even got a neat deal on the tickets and hotel. I informed my family and friends a week before my birthday that I will not be home this birthday. They were happy for me since this was the first time after my break-up that I was ready to come out of my shell and try things on my own. Break ups teach you two important things- one, that how capable you are of loving yourself and second, how much of that love can you share with your partner. The time after we parted taught me that I was lacking on the latter and therefore the relationship came crumbling down. I had no choice but to pick up the pieces and move on.
