As you may guess from this picture, I love biking in the woods. Make yourself comfortable and enjoy the ride. Until February 2016 I blogged regularly about books, art, literature and writing.
This is my only site. You can check the column on your left to access the links to my published works. The latest ones appear on the upper part.

When one door closes, another one opens
"When one door of happiness closes, another opens; but often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one which has been opened for us". Helen Keller
Have you ever experienced a situation in which you get stuck and let your eyes wander for too long on the closed door in front of you? Or have you wasted time on it when you know that you are not the owner of the key to that locked door?
Turn your head, look around. You may be missing out other opportunities. Or you may be forgetting to focus your energy on the right door. If your mind is too muddled to even find that open door, take your time and relax. The light is coming from somewhere; enjoy it. Seize the best of it, dive into your dreams. Work on them with fascination. Let your intuition sparkle inside you. Follow it. Cherish every opportunity and seek new ones, be content with every step you take.
Life is about change, pain brings growth, and transformation happens when you allow yourself to be flexible, when you let the waters of imagination flow freely. You don't know where the next door will lead to, and this uncertainty makes the deal even more fascinating. No matter what you are going through now, it will pass.
You are where you are supposed to be. Sit back and relax.
Now focus on the open doors, the ones that will lead to new ideas, thoughts and experiences. There are no guarantees, but the truth is that life is too short to waste your time staring at a closed door...
Happy New Year!
