Music – The Twilight Sad


Song from the album ‘Nobody Wants To Be Here And Nobody Wants To Leave’

“There’s A Girl In The Corner”

And you’re not coming back
And you’re not coming back from this
She’s not coming back
And she’s not coming back from this

There’s a girl in the corner
And she’s crying for you
Gonna die for you
She’s not coming back
She’s not coming back from this
And you’re not coming back
And you’re not coming back again

You said you’d leave me and I’ll forget
I’m more than one and I see how it fights
You thought you want me but you just forget
You rolled in on but not too far
And you’re not coming back
And you’re not coming back from this

To all the boys you knew,
And all the [?] outside, outside,
Outside, outside, outside

She’s not coming back
And she’s not coming back again
You say you feel it too much
You say you feel it too much
She’s not coming back
She’s not coming back
She’s not coming back
And she’s not coming back for me.

Have a great day you all…  

Thank you to The Twilight Sad for their great music! ❤

A Powerful Antibiotic from Nature…

tumeric 2

Turmeric

35082

Raw Organic Honey

Hello everyone,

this is not one of my usual post but is about “Health” and “Natural Remedies” I feel that this is something I like to share with all of you, especially right now that is Winter Season  it’s easy to get sick, weather change, cold temperatures, snow, rain, cold wind, humidity and so on…we need to be wise and protected because cold and flu is easy to catch and is not fun.
I have to say that I am a strong believer of the power of Nature not just in my Art but in everything I do and I use natural homemade remedies. I have seen great results most of the time.
What I am going to share is the recipe I used to cure my “Cold”  when I got sick around New Years Eve.
My symptoms were a cold associated with sore throat, cough, loss of voice, muscle aches.
This special and precious natural mixture did wander for me and is known as the “Turmeric Golden Honey” is claimed to be one of the strongest natural antibiotic. When you take these two ingredients together it strengthens your “Immune System” and is as well a great anti inflammatory.
The mixture is composed of Turmeric and Raw organic Honey. Turmeric is a root  part of the Ginger family cultivated in India and Asia, when dry is a powder having an intense yellow color used as spice for cooking, can be found in every food market, actually is really good and add a unique and exotic taste to your food giving you lots of great health benefits. (I suggest you to Google health benefits of Turmeric).

The Turmeric yellow color is very pigmented and maybe you remember one of my previous post where I explain how I experimented Watercolor painting with Turmeric .

Turmeric Flower

Now let’s get the “Turmeric Golden Honey” recipe:

Ingredients are:

  • 3.5 oz. (100 grams) of Raw Organic Honey. (I use organic raw wildflower honey)
  • 1 tbsp. of Turmeric powder.

Preparation of the mixture:

Add 1 tbsp. of Turmeric in 3.5 oz. (100 grams) of raw organic honey, mix very well with a wooden spoon and place the Golden Honey mixture in a glass jar.
If you want to make more double the dose and store it at room temperature.

How to Use:

Take upon the first symptoms of colds and flu:

Day 1 – Take ½ tsp. every hour during the day.
Day 2 – Take ½ tsp. every two hours during the day.
Day 3 – Take ½ tsp. three times a day.

The Golden Honey mixture should stay in the mouth until dissolved.

The cold usually passes after three days, in mild cases, but sometimes takes longer for the body to recover.
I took this for one week and kept taking ½ tsp. once a day for few more days when I was feeling better until the cold was gone just to keep my immune system strong. Thanks to this homemade mix you can be able to prevent cold without taking any drugs and prescriptions and use it as alternative.

Use it also to boost the Immune System Take ½ tsp once every couple of days as needed.

 

I remind you strongly that if you suffer of any medical condition and taking any medications please consult your doctor before trying this natural alternative as it may have adverse effects on some individuals.

Poetry – Crystals

Purple Flame Ring


Crystals

translucent surface
of an inner energy

powerful light
radiating rays of depth
in the history of nature

sun reflection and donation
of universal love
for the humanity to hold

a cosmic revelation
sometimes unknown
like puzzle pieces to find
within our soul

awareness will come
with perception and feelings
love is power
light will shine

“Turquoise is considered one of the most ancient and old gemstone in the history of men and was mined from thousands of years.  Turquoise is a protective stone, emits protective energy,  was used from warriors for protection, power, strength and  courage. Many honored Turquoise as the universal stone, believing their minds would become one with the universe when wearing it.
If given a turquoise by a loving friend, that stone would protect the wearer from negative energy and bring good fortune. The turquoise is the symbol of friendship “

2016 Update – Laptop Fail…

maxresdefault

2016 Laptop Fail…

 

Hello everyone,

sorry I haven’t been posting as usual! There is a reason why and I will tell you all about it!

I just want to give you an update of what’s going on during my early 2016.  In my last “Post of the 2015”  I wrote that I got sick with the Flu, that wasn’t a nice ending of the year, but I got over the Flu very well taking care of me with rest, warm, lots of tea and a great natural recipe made out of “Turmeric and Raw Honey” this magic natural antibiotic did wander for me. I should make a post about it sometimes! 🙂 I also like to thank all of you that left me beautiful and lovely comments to get well soon! Thank you!

Anyway the reason why I am not posting as usual and during the past days I did some reblogs, is because my nearly two years old HP Pavilion Laptop decided to go to sleep and never woke up!!!
Can you imagine how frustrating this can be?  All my digital work and data are on it!!!! 😦

I had to use my Kindle Fire to check my Blog, emails etc… and with a Kindle isn’t easy to type long posts, but I am grateful that I have been able at least to read and reply  to your nice comments, my apologies if I missed someone.

I am pretty good with computers and I did try any advice and suggestions I found online to wake up my laptop. Actually it did woke up 3 times, but after last time seems there is no way for everything I did try. This type of fail seems to happen very often with laptops of all kinds of brands in fact this is the second laptop I own that fail, my first one was from another brand and it lasted five years and same thing happened.

I have to say that I am disappointed this time because I don’t think that a nice laptop from a great brand like HP has to have such a short life less than 2 years! I still hope that there is a way to fix it.

Right now I had no options than get a new computer, which is great of course, this time is not longer a laptop but a great desktop! It wasn’t planned at all for me to buy a new one but I need it for my work and my livelihood. I am sure something great will come out of all this wish me well! 😉

For the end of the next week I will have my new set up and I can go back to my work and new posts!
Also for who wander about my weekly “Fridays Meet and Greet Event” and the “Feature Event on Saturdays” will go back on soon stay tuned because I will choose new Blogs to Feature, stay connected!!! ❤

One last thing Thank You so much to all the recent “Follow” that I received I am full of appreciation!
I did Follow back everyone I could and I will check back your Blogs! Stay connected.

Have a wonderful 2016 together we can keep walking doing great things…
Wish you a wonderful day or night!

Video release – Love

When imagination can save your life…here it is latest work of Ewian the new video for the song “Love” from last Album “We need Monsters” I hope you enjoy….

EWIAN

Here it is, probably our last video for ‘We Need Monsters’, for a song called ‘Love’.
It´s about an indian seamstress who is daydreaming during her work as a kind of cognitive survival strategy.
It took us one year of production to film the different seasons.
What I intended to express with this song is that imagination can save our life. Like it saved the life of this indian girl.

Have some magical moments in 2016.
