Prompt 18 – HAPPINESS

Do you know I don’t know how one can walk by a tree and not be happy at the sight of it? How can one talk to a man and not be happy in loving him! Oh, it’s only that I’m not able to express it…And what beautiful things there are at every step, that even the most hopeless man must feel to be beautiful! Look at a child! Look at God’s sunrise! Look at the grass, how it grows! Look at the eyes that gaze at you and love you! /F.Dostoyevsky/

Yes, there’s so much that makes us happy…

happiness_waterfall

…either it is beauty all around…

happiness_balloon

…something heart has been longing for…

happiness_boat

…or freedom and the whole wide world at our feet…

Do you know what makes you happy?

Prompt 17 – MEMORIES

Memories are the key not to the past, but to the future. /Corrie Ten Boom/  So, I travelled back through the years to my favourite places…yes, maybe looking back to be able to keep looking forward…

mem_Pamporovo1

Though I really feel at home in Burgas, Bulgaria, being up in the Rhodope mountains always takes my breath away

mem_firenze

My bella Firenze, bella Italia…even on a grey winter day

mem_ocean

Being near the ocean is always an adventure – usually rather unpredictable one, like up there – in Porto, Portugal

mem_home

And then there’ s always the road to where it all began – Kuldīga, Latvia

mem_childhood

Many moons ago…already/still/again happy!

What crosses your mind when you walk down the memory lane?
