thankful for the wind today

I couldn’t stay working in the studio this morning, I felt a bit restless. So I went for a walk to the beach at the lake. It’s another very windy day here and I love it. Maybe it was the wind that made me restless, it does that to me. When I was out there I felt great under the beautiful immense blue sky. There is a bit of fresh snow on the mountain caps, over in the distance. The air is very cold, it made me feel I could smell the snow, but in the sunshine I felt warm and alive.

I’m so thankful for days like today.

The lake looks a lot like the sea when it’s so windy, waves are building and crashing over the rocks and pebbles. I’ve always loved water. Always dreamt of living close to it. Days like today remind me of when I used to live in Ireland, in front of the sea with big dreams in my head and the wind pushing me forward.

What are you thankful for today?

  2. I’d love to know where these pictures are and where you are based, since you talk about slow living in a small village. I can’t find any indication of this anywhere on your site, did I miss something?

    • oh sorry I never noticed it’s not written anywhere on my site. I live in a small village called Abbadia Lariana on the banks of Lake Como in Italy. I moved here less than a year ago after ten years living in Milan.

  3. Oh Mirta, you know you’re making me green with envy, right ?! ;-)
    This is such a great feeling to feel the elements beating your face, your whole body, emptying your mind and then filling your soul with naturally positive vibes !
    I’m thankful for my family presence close by, and for the sun shining on a very regular basis. And I’m most definitely thankful for my friends, these days ! xoxoxo
