Blogging = creativity + sharing = joy

Below are one of my favorite quotes and a photo I was lucky to shoot in Hollywood (Florida). I hope that you’ll like them.

What sweetness is left in life, if you take away friendship? Robbing life of friendship is like robbing the world of the sun. A true friend is more to be esteemed than kinsfolk.

Marcus Tullius Cicero



I would appreciate very much if in comments to this post you shared whatever you like or proud of (giving links to your blogs).

Thank you.

Hollywood gallery

This morning I learned how to create a gallery of photos on this blog.

I created the page “HOLLYWOOD GALLERY” and placed there selected photos from the Media library.

Please take a look and let me know if everything works properly.

Thank you!



Pillars of the Dream: Work

I found this terrific post on the very good blog Farming The Dream and immediately decided to share it with you.
Atheists believe that work made people from apes.
What can happen if there is not enough work?

Farming The Dream

I have found that Super Bowel commercials are really the only ones worth watching. At the price they pay per minute, I’d hope so.

Though this commercial is probably not very popular in other countries, it does have a good message that comes clear in one sentence: “It’s pretty simple, you work hard, create your own luck, and you got to believe that anything is possible.” That sentence sums up the idea of work in The American Dream.

Work uses Opportunities within Freedom to build our lives. By its strength, we can forge different destinies for us and our families. The immigrant can become a steel magnate, like Andrew Carnegie; a boy splitting rails for the railway can become president, like Abraham Lincoln.

I am a history

I found out that many of the followers of this blog do not know how to find what they are interested in among almost 800 posts of the “Pursuit of Happiness”.

Actually, it is very simple if you know meaning of pages on the WordPress platform.

A header of each post includes a photo and a black field below it. On the black field there are words that express different topics (humor, travel, my writings, artists, etc.).

When you click on any topic a page appears. Sometimes there is an introduction to the topic. In all cases a page has links to all posts on this topic in the blog.

For example, if you click on words “My writings” on the black field on the header you will get exactly the same result as if you click on “MY WRITINGS” here.

You’ll get an introduction to my writings and links to many, many posts.

You will understand my words “I am a history” and will find life stories, fiction, humor and tragedies, book reviews and other interesting information.

Try it and I guarantee you compensation for your time if you are not satisfied!

Please don’t forget to let me know that you like my writings.

Best to you!



Three pictures of my friends

This blog again has almost 800 posts.

I am going to edit it again by removing less interesting posts, combining some posts and reviewing my pages.

During some time in the past I posted each day photos of my friends from the Google Photo Community.

Today I show you the first three pictures posted in January 2014. .

Blogs and photography of Rajiv Chopra.

Not long ago I discovered a blog Rajiv Chopra Photography ( I explored it and then asked Rajiv’s permission to introduce some of his photos to my followers and guests. He kindly agreed and sent me some photos that were not on his blog.

Later I found out that Rajiv has several other blogs:

rajivchopra (

A Gypsy’s Chronicles (

A Gypsy’s Life In Black And White (

Each of them is interesting and has its own life. I am sure that you will like not only Rajiv’s photos but his very intensive and interesting writings.

It was not easy to choose what particular Rajiv’s photos to show you. I decided to show two photos made in India (Rajiv’s country) and one his photo made in Germany. Here they are:








Photos of beautiful women.

The spring started in many countries and brought some rather strange events to this blog.

For example, on 1/16/2014 I published the post PHOTOS OF MAREK PALACKA and asked my followers to tell me who is the most beautiful of the four girls.

The post was not popular in January. It is possible that majority of my followers were digging themselves from snow at that time. It is also possible that all women who follow the blog decided to ignore this post in protest to my question.

However, everything changed on 3/14/2014. In the morning I received a thank you message from Marek Palacka and I told him that I’d like to post more of his photos and asked him to give me a link to his biography.

Then the real action started. During last three days my blog received 227 hits from Slovakia and 186 hits were to the post “Photos of Marek Palacka”.

It looks like after long cold winter guys in Slovakia awakened and started appreciate the beauty of their girls.

However, there are many beautiful women in other countries too. You can find some of them in the following posts:





I hope that all followers and guests will enjoy all posts mentioned above.

There is nothing else I can do!

Very often my days start with surprises.

I can awake with new feelings or new ideas, I can switch on TV and see something that requires me to react to it in some way. I can start reading emails and immediately find not just one but several emails that answer questions that I have or at least show me where I can find answers..

Last two months I noticed that I like very much photos of full Moon on the dark sky. You can see that I posted several such photos during last two weeks.

In December I started my first attempts of painting using PC paint program. Very soon I noticed that I like to fill the field with black and then to put the yellow circle close to the right upper corner.

Yesterday I posted the photo by Derek Kind “Full Moon Rising Over Mount Shasta”. Today I found that somebody from the terrific four people blog “The World According To Dina” liked this photo.

Then I remembered that one young man recently joined “The World According To Dina” and he liked some my posts before.

As all my followers are outstanding people I decided to find more about this young man.

I went to Wikipedia and found the following:

Klausbernd Vollmar, (born 22 November 1946) is a German scientific psychologist, specialized in the language of symbols, in dreamart and advertisement.

Vollmar was born in Remscheid, Germany. He studied German literaturelinguisticsphilosophy and geography at the Ruhr-University/Germany and the McGill University/Montreal. After his degrees he was awarded a research scholarship by the Canada Council at the McGill University.

He worked as editor in chief of different papers and magazines, as director (theatre and films) and for the Goethe-Institut (the international German culture institution) in Finland.

In the 1970s he returned to university to study psychology. He was a student of the countess Dr. Olga von Ungern-Sternberg (a direct student of C.G. Jung). He undertook anthropological studies in Asia and the Arctic, about which he wrote in his novel “Wasserberg” and his “Arctic Diary”.

Later he ran bookshops in Cologne, worked in the publication department of the Findhorn community, Scotland and was a member of an English Gurdjieff group.

Since the end of the 1980s he has lived on the Norfolk coast, writing mostly non-fiction books for international publishing houses and working for radio and television.

His main subject is the language of symbols, dreams and the impact of colour on our lives. Besides that he is known as a specialist for the Arctic. He published several articles about the concept of the north and the picture of the Inuit in literature and film.

His books are translated in 15 languages. Apart from the books about creativity and personal development he wrote the German standard encyclopedia of symbols in dreams and the first German encyclopedia of colour in history, art and printing.”

Aha! Here is the man who can answer my questions!

Surely, I went to see the last post on “The World According To Dina”.

Below is what I found:


I found this post very interesting. It answered my questions.  It explained that yellow colour is female colour and the circle is a female form. It also explained that black is intellectual colour. “Black is fashionable!…Black is sexy!…Black is a lucky colour!”

Today is the Valentine’s Day. Let this post be my gift to you!

There is nothing else I can do!
