To my friends!

Dear friends!

This blog started in October of 2013.

I never expected that blogging will bring so much joy to my life.

At 79-80 it’s not that easy to meet 3,000+ talented people of all ages from many countries and learn from them, enjoy their creativity, kindness and friendship.

I am glad to know you, to see your posts daily, to travel with you, to read your writings, to enjoy your photos, to suffer and to overcome with you.

Happy New Year to you and your loved ones!

I am very grateful to everybody who created and maintains WordPress.

Happy New Year to you and your families! You are builders of happiness!

In 2014 I learned more about blogging. In January I started to paint using PC paint program. In June I got my first digital camera and after more than 20 years’ interval started shooting what I liked.

I learned a little about painting and photo processing programs.

With your help I overcame my fear to write in English.

i even wrote several book reviews. You can read one of them HERE.

I liked “Shadow of the Raven” by a fellow blogger Millie Thom very much.

I hope that in 2015 I’ll be able to share with you new posts that you’ll like.

The very best to all my followers everywhere this year!

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 38,000 times in 2014. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 14 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

You are born for happiness and love!

Live has many ups and downs. Even in the depth of depression I remembered the words of a Russian short story writer, journalist, human rights activist and humanitarian Vladimir Korolenko:

“Man is born for happiness as a bird is born to fly”.

These words helped me to overcome all problems in my lives in the Soviet Union and in US. But happiness is not possible without love. You must love yourself and it gives you immense capacity to love others.

New Year is coming. I wish that your life was a happy flight full of love!
