So many palm trees in Santa Barbara… from the moment I stepped foot in that city, I fell in love with it.
It’s such a beautiful, calm place. Walking under the blazing sun, smelling the ocean and seeing happy faces all around, was a pure blessing. What a peaceful moment. We truly were in a bubble, away from anything bad in the world. I loved it, and it was exactly what I needed 💙
A soft summer breeze is blowing, I’m hearing the leaves tickling each other and giggling with a distinct whistling, as if they are actually little human beings. Everything is alive in this forest, and I myself am part of it. I’m as human as the centenary tree in the middle of it all. I’m part of everything in this place, as much as they’re part of me.
My elvish skin is nourished by the sun rays, just like the flowers, and I blossom throughout the year in the same manner. I feel more connected to the ground I walk on, than the weird city lights I see being built in the far away. I wish they’ll stay that way. We don’t need artificial anything here, it’s already so full of life.
Cherry picking is probably my favorite activity, after laying in the sun and reading. I love that my Grandma planted a bunch of cherry trees, and that now we get so many of them every year. They’re so full of juice, and better eaten fresh, right after being picked. Oh how I love my summers in Serbia ❤️
I sat there between the cherry trees, smelling the freshly cut grass and blooming roses. I was reading yet another Greek tragedy… I’m so fond of those. My life hasn’t been as adventurous as Ulysses sailing the Ionian sees. I haven’t met no cyclopes, or witch-goddess, or even sirens. Or even had a mortal love. Those stories aren’t just tragedies, they’re so vibrant they make you feel alive.
Beautiful Zurich… the lake is huge and there’s so many swans around, it looks dreamy. You can hop on a boat and go to the neighborhing cities, or stumble upon some weird trees while going to the old town; even though I’m coming here to see my best friend, I realize that it’s such a nice vacation spot.
