close-up shots of snowflakes captured by Alexey Kljatov in his backyard in Moscow, 2013
"I capture snowflakes on the open balcony of my house, mostly on glass surface, lighted by an LED flashlight from the oppopite side of the glass, and sometimes in natural light, using dark woolen fabrics as background."
Ring Around the Sun
Dennis MammanaFrom New Zealand’s Aoraki Mt. Cook National Park a glorious halo circled the sun over the snowcapped and cloud-shrouded mountains of the rugged Southern Alps.Such beautiful celestial displays occur when tiny ice crystals form in the Earth’s upper atmosphere and refract and reflect sunlight in a ring 44 degrees across. -

If you want to succeed in your life, remember this phrase:
That past does not equal the future.
Because you failed yesterday; or all day today; or a moment ago;
or for the last six months; the last sixteen years;
or the last fifty years of life, doesn’t mean anything …
All that matters is: What are you going to do, right now?

‘If two points are destined to touch, the universe will always find a way to make the connection - even when all hope seems to be lost.
Certain ties cannot be broken.
They define who we are - and who we can become.
Across space, across time, among paths we cannot predict -
nature always finds a way.’

Life always give us exactly the teacher we need at every moment.
This includes every mosquito, every misfortune, every red light, every traffic jam,
every obnoxious supervisor, every illness, every loss,
every moment of joy or depression, every addiction, every breath.
Every moment is the guru.

“Shinrin-yoku” is a Japanese term that translates as “forest bathing” and describes immersing oneself in a forest environment in order
to experience the healing effects of Mother Nature at her best.
It is believed that the trees themselves emit natural aromatherapeutic benefits from the essential oils in the woods that are inhaled over an extended period,
causing an actual "magic in the air."

I hope that I get to see you love what you are.
To know yourself as gift and worth and truth.
That you see what a huge thing it is to have the courage to break your own heart.
That you have chosen wholeness — even when it has shattered you.
And that you will one day see that you can be whole and broken in the exact same spaces, that they nestle side by side — and that this is the way of things…
That you trust there is brilliance to come.
That you own what is yours to own, both the bad and the good.
That you do not insist on owning it all. It was never all yours to hold.
The truth is that the more intimately you know someone,
the more clearly you’ll see their flaws. That’s just the way it is.
This is why marriages fail, why children are abandoned, why friendships don’t last.
You might think you love someone until you see the way they act when they’re out of money or under pressure or hungry, for goodness’ sake.
Love is something different.
Love is choosing to serve someone and be with someone in spite of their filthy heart.
Love is patient and kind, love is deliberate. Love is hard.
Love is pain and sacrifice, it’s seeing the darkness in another person
and defying the impulse to jump ship.

Be patient and find someone who your heart and mind both agree with.
You will know it’s right, when a person satiates both your mind and heart perfectly.

Uneori suntem nevoiţi să batem căile lungi ale vieţii sub un cer furtunos sub semnele unor zile ce ne vorbesc trist despre limitele cugetului şi faptei noastre;
alteori mergem nimbaţi sub cupola de aur a aurorei.
Viaţa omului e luptă şi îndemn.
Ea poate fi povară şi bucurie, după cum poate fi ură şi dragoste, moarte şi creaţie.
Deschide larg porţile inimii tale de om, făptură în care întreg universul a privit o dată, deschide lumii acesteia o altă cale, oricât de mică, o cale nouă, dreaptă, săgetătoare, cale de lumină în beznă, scară prinsă încheutorile cerului, deschide-o din dragoste, din bunătate, din dărnicie, că e prea multă delăsare, prea multă trudă şi răutate.

Remember to look up at the stars, and not down to your feet.
Try to make sense of what you see, and wonder about what makes the universe exist.
And however difficult life may seem, there is always something you can do and succeed at.
It matters that you don’t just give up.
