No place is far
To find the two
Let me shake your hand
To have you by my side
Christmas…that magic blanket that wraps itself about us, that something so intangible that it is like a fragrance. It may weave a spell of nostalgia. Christmas may be a day of feasting, or of prayer, but always it will be a day of remembrance…a day in which we think of everything we have ever loved. – Augusta E Rundell

I don’t need a friend who changes when I change and who nods when I nod; my shadow does that much better - Plutarch
A journey, after all, neither begins in the instant we set out, nor ends when we have reached our door step once again. It starts much earlier and is really never over, because the film of memory continues running on inside of us long after we have come to a physical standstill. Indeed, there exists something like a contagion of travel, and the disease is essentially incurable.

You better watch out, you better not cry
You better not pout, I’m telling you why, why?
Santa Claus is coming to town
He’s making a list
And checking it twice
He’s gonna find out who’s naughty and nice
Santa Claus is coming to town

The air has a chemical taste
I cure my fear by breath from your lips
And I hold that smell in my lungs
And I’m afraid of every day
That the ice under our feet can break
And what will wait for us on the road?
I don’t want to think anymore
No matter what comes
You want it or not
There won’t be always like this
A new day is raising up
Language… has created the word ‘loneliness’ to express the pain of being alone. And it has created the word ‘solitude’ to express the glory of being alone - Paul Tillich

Yesterday’s glare of the Sun
A badly developed snap
A time woven with hope
A frozen smile
like a wild beast
wink their eyes
ready to gobble me
when I think that I will forget
I would like so much
to tread softly in space
to be able to visit myself
in the past
not so distant

Lyrics: 24 Zachody Slonca by Firebirds translated by KEBS
The friendly cow, all red and white,
I love with all my heart:
She gives me cream with all her might,
To eat with apple-tart.

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

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?
Photo history: It was taken two days back in Zakopane in Polish mountains Tatras. This year the ski season seems to be very long with lots of natural snow as you can see. All rights reserved by KEBS.
