#Tbt , I think, yesterday one year ago. I can't believe how fast the time flies. And at the same time, it's incredible to see how much happened since then. We were in Cologne that day (again) and went to the music store where we spent ages. When we went outside, it was already dark and we went back to the Rhine to (take this photo and) eat pizza. If my companions hadn't been too cold, I would have loved to sit outside with a blanket and enjoy all those amazing lights along the river. That was a quite nice day. Cologne is still one of my favourite cities in Germany. ❤️ Sorry for not posting anything for a few days, but I just couldn't find the time to take any photos and my body is acting weird too, but we have really nice weather at the moment and I had a fantastic session at the Redwell Centre in Gloucester yesterday. And tonight is party time 🎉🎉🎉 Have a nice weekend everyone!

Cathédrale Notre Dame de Paris
millions of people bustling around, dragging their shoes, aimlessly walking, trying to capture the transcendental beauty through the
lenses of their smart phones. 'Does my hair look alright? ' , 'Can you see my face better than the face of the estonification of the divine power? '
I look at the architecture, the forms made from stone cut by a poor woman's husband whose hands were rough and cut at many places, blood dried on his back with the lashes of his master. And I look at the blood on the crown of the Son.
The light sifts through a palette of vibrant colours each depicting a different lifetime.
Do we see in these arches the immense capability of the human mind?
It seems that the building speaks to me. It walks with me and shows me its different facets and a blending of the natural filtered light with the florescent lamps that hides and discloses its numerous curves. It tells me how it has seen centuries and people like flocks of sheep herding and disappearing every day.
'Taking with them a part of me but only seldom they take the essence of me, my existence, my non -living life. How they have made me just a visual splendor. I live and I will live through centuries but only some touch my soul and I go with them to stay untold
in their spirit. They think they can capture me with their portraits. But do they really?
It’s only a fraction of my flesh. They can never touch me or own me. I house in the word of matter thoughtfully composed. '
And when I drop my gaze in front of me, millions of people are still bustling around, dragging their pudgy feet and trying to capture the transcendental beauty through the lenses of their smart phones.
