I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel ― Maya Angelou
I’ve seen this quote on one of London’s tube stations, it made me think at that time but it is only now when I have fully understood it.
At this time of the year normally I would post first flowers. Instead the weather has surprised so much that I could not resist to not create the following video. The time spent skiing in Poland was marvellous. Additionally the snow fall on Easter Sunday and Monday created an atmosphere of Christmas rather than Easter itself
There are as many pillows of illusion as flakes in a snow-storm. We wake from one dream into another dream. - Ralph Waldo Emerson

Wishing You all Merry Merry Easter from white Poland!
As you can see it feels more like expecting a first star and gifts during Christmas than looking for eggs and bunnies in a garden this year. Wait, have you remembered to sent a letter to Santa?

Another beautiful song found recently
Someday when we’re old and worn
Like two softened shoes
I will wonder on how I was born
The night I first ran away from you

“What is your resolution sir?”

- Can you see a circle?
- No, because you have blurred it.
- Because it was Yesterday. And It’s gone. There is only Today. Do you like Today?
- You mean… whether today is ok?
- You must like Today, then Today will like you. And forget about Yesterday, then It will forget about you.
- Not too bad… Do you have anything about Tomorrow?
- About Tomorrow we can’t talk. It does not belong to us.

There is no such thing as a little freedom – either you are all free or you are not free - Walter Cronkite
This song matches perfectly this movie – Louise’s Garden (Ogrod Luizy). Ecarrie made a great job!
I would give a lot to be able to find a version with English subtitles as I would love to share with you and my friends this beautiful and touching story which happens in the movie.
Be my friend
Hold me, wrap me up
I am small and needy
Warm me up
And breathe me

Age does not make us childish, as some say; it finds us true children - Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
After spending a couple of years in India I would say this is the right way to help women to find a job, afford a dignified life and provide hope for the future. So far it seems Women on Wings are engaged solely in India but I guess similar initiatives are and/or should be soon in other parts of the world where women still need to fight for their positions in society, more than in other parts of our globe.
Things didn’t turn out the way they were supposed to, but what can you do? You must take life the way it comes at you and make the best of it – Yann Martel
To be frank I am not a fan of the book ‘Life of Pi’ but the below sentence described my permanent dream perfectly. When I read it the first time I thought that this book will be really amazing, that the author and I were on the same wavelength. May be my expectations were too high expectations, just because of this one sentence
I had visions of myself sitting at a table on a large veranda, my notes spread out in front of me next to a steaming cup of tea. Green hills heavy with mists would lie at my feet and … – Yann Martel
Even exploring the neighbourhood can bring new surprises when you think you know it well. Just look around, e.g. change an usual pub and you can find that the other one is also very friendly and homely, with a great view over the water. Additionally while waiting for a meal you are assisted by a white whale. Not by accident though

A title for this post is a part of the song Ryba Pila lyrics by Elektryczne Gitary, not the most popular but this line is somehow known to most of us.

May be the book The Art of Manliness: Classic Skills and Manners for the Modern Man teaching how to be still a man in the current times is not known to most of you but the similar scenes from the real life for sure are
And the conclusion (one of the best scenes ever):
After so many years Friends still rules and makes my day!

I have decided this year I will try to keep this blog more lively and post more up to date quotes and some events that should not be missed. Nevertheless, I am always getting inspired by old songs, poems and what people have said in the past so this will still find its place here as well. Many of them are still so relevant in our times.
The first one I want to share with you in 2013 is the one I have received from one of my clients today as his auto email reply. After reading it I got really jealous :) It reads:
Please note that I will have limited access to email from 24 December 2012 to 31 January 2013 as I’m writing my new book.
