Happy Places


The recent WordPress Photo Challenge comes with the theme “Happy Place”. I do not think that there is just one single place where I feel relaxed or happy, I know several happy places. My home acts as a safe haven where I can relax, where I can get creative, where I can mute problems, where I can feel happy most of the time.

There is a lot of untouched nature in the area of Salem and you can find all kind of animals and insects there and sometimes you do really wonder what you find. I was not there … Continue reading What Kind Of Insect Is This?

Daily Prompt: Always Something There to Remind Me


From the Daily Post: A song comes on the radio and instantly, you’re transported to a different time and place. Which song(s) bring back memories for you and why? Be sure to mention the song, and describe the memory it evokes. This is hard to answer. There are many songs that remind me to a particular situation or time from the past. And each year there are new songs that will remind me to something years later too. I can´t mention a song as I would need to list many songs here. But I can say that it happens often … Continue reading Daily Prompt: Always Something There to Remind Me
