Maria, la chiave! | Life is beautiful

The quote is from the movie La vita e bella (Life is beautiful). πŸ™‚ I hope you all have heard about this masterpiece in film history. If you haven’t, wow, you really should check it out.

Daily Prompt asked me about a quote from my favorite movie and although I don’t just find one movie worth the title, this one immediately came into my mind. It is amazing, beautiful, funny, it makes you laugh and cry and everything in between…

The movie has so many incredible quotes but the thing I remembered first was this one. This scene is when Guido is trying to impress Dora by asking Mary (the catholic mother of Jesus) to throw the key of hers (Dora’s) heart. Guido of course knows that at that spot in the building above lives certain Maria who throws the key to her husband (or son) when he comes back home and yells; “Maria, la chiave!” The look on Dora’s face is priceless. πŸ˜€

Guido: “So, you were saying… The key that always makes you say yes has to come from heaven?”

Dora: “Yes.”

Guido: “I’ll give it a try… If the Virgin Mary tosses it down to me, you never know. Mary, the key!!”

*the key drops*Β

At first sight I felt the energy of sun rays… I saw the life inside

New.

What says new beginning more than a sunrise? New Year. New human life. (Read on the whole post πŸ˜‰ ) My resolution to post more of my photos here. There is and won’t be nothing “new” about this Year if I don’t choose to make it so.Β 

I love sunrises and it is somewhat rare for me to see them – I am a night owl most of the time. πŸ™‚ So, these moments are very special, especially because I photographed this sunrise when i woke up and not when I was going to bed after all night making love to the internet. πŸ˜€

I took it on December 30. It started snowing here on December 27 and it didn’t stop for two days. So I woke up on December 30 and saw sun rays piercing through my blinds. You can see on my header how much I love sunrises (and sunsets) and you can maybe see comparing the two photos how much more south the Sun rises in the winter.

Also, I have a happy news, another new begining. πŸ˜€ My cousin, daughter from my father’s sister gave birth to the cutest baby boy yesterday! ❀ They are both fine and this just feels me with joy hehe πŸ˜€

Also, I have been yearning to listen to this song for some reason.

p.s. The title is from the lyrics of the song. πŸ™‚

….let us all unite!

It’s good from once in a while to listen to this again. It is so brilliant.

I love to share advice and stuff that helped me and that inspire me…that is actually the constant flow in this blog of mine, whatever I write about. I love to share positive thoughts, initiatives and creating a life you actually love to live. I said a couple of times that I aspire to inspire. That is true.

I wish you an awesome day. πŸ™‚

Mon……ups, Tuesday blues

It is almost 3 am and I am sitting here, not in a particularly comfortable position writing in the dark.

What is going on?

I don’t know.

Has internet and blogosphere trapped me again?

Probably.

Have been true for many many nights….

All I know is that I feel monday-ish all day and it’s still that day to me because I did not go to sleep yet (my logic), and I am looking at all sorts of challenges, writing, photo, prompts… A lot of stuff just awaits my attention and I can see myself write and write and write days away. πŸ™‚ And that’s doesn’t even include all the things I have begun but aren’t posted yet… I honestly don’t know how it is like to be without inspiration on my blog, I literary have to hold myself up from not writing 10 posts in a day, and I hope I won’t taste the bitter taste of blank mind here.

So, what do I do when it’s too late for anything except bookmarking?

I share anti – blues video for Monday/Tuesday… Any day you need it. πŸ™‚

Ain’t no sunshine when she’s gone…

Daily Prompt:Β You’re asked to recite a poem (or song lyrics) from memory β€” what’s the first one that comes to mind? Does it have a special meaning, or is there another reason it has stayed, intact, in your mind?

As everyone who has been to my blog to stay (hi guys/girls ❀ ) knows… I have song in my head almost all the time. Sometimes it is for no reason, but sometimes like today, it has some meaning.

It was sunny outside and I had to go out for a bit. As soon as I came back home, the sun hid behind the clouds and it’s not coming back. So, I’m the “she” and I “have been away” from outside a lot in the past month. Again, my beloved readers will know why. πŸ™‚ There is so much meaning in this song I am singing for the last hour.

Ain’t no sunshine when she’s gone
It’s not warm when she’s away.
Ain’t no sunshine when she’s gone
And she’s always gone too long
Anytime she goes away…

One for the Monday ;)

Have a great beginning of the week. Here it is raining – therefore, I am staying in my bed. πŸ˜€ Also I need to figure out bunch of stuff of which I can’t talk about, otherwise it will not be a surprise. πŸ˜‰ So, I guess I have to develop a skill that includes “chores from bed” and I stamp the Copyright on that name right here and now.

Thanks for the huge response on my last two posts. ❀

You inspire me!

Yes you do! I have been chatting with my readers and bloggers I love – Hiiii girlssss πŸ˜‰ ❀

And I encourage others to comment and give chatting a chance because… No, because, you don’t need a reason. It’s awesome and surprisingly rewarding πŸ™‚

I learn a lot with chatting with you, you are all so supportive it makes me feel grateful. πŸ˜€

So, in conversations I got ideas for my future posts. Now, I don’t have time for all the ideas haha XD

I just wanted to tell you how awesome you are…

I will write about drinks in Croatia, post a lot of photos so you can see how was my cloudy summer and post some more recipes. Can’t wait!

This is for Zee – who two posts in a row has an honorable mention. Am I off the hook with Monopoly money? πŸ˜€

Don’t worry, be happy. Even though I have a headache again, I am looking forward to post all the things I have in mind. πŸ™‚

It’s amazing what a little funny can do

Thank you Zee for this. Now I have another song in my head πŸ˜›

I can thank Ellen DeGeneres for the title, since she said it. Maybe someone else said it too, but I remember it from her πŸ˜€ Β (Also, does anyone know how can I watch her show on internet? Any info is welcomed…)

It is true, for me at least. A good laugh can brake some serious shit.

“And it feels so empty without me! La la la la la la la la la la…”

I’ve got a song stuck in my head

OK, that is not hot news, since I have a song stuck in my head probably all the time. I am the jukebox, nice to meet you. πŸ™‚

But this time, it’s baaaaad.

And it makes me wonder, why does our brain play jokes with us like that? Is it repeating the song which makes it stuck? No, because I heard this mine one or two times and it is IN. So, what is it then?

This is a perfect example of how this process works. πŸ˜€ Double plus, it’s from the movie Easy A.Β 

Β 

If you are really curious what song is it, it’s Anaconda from Nicki Minaj. DO NOT WATCH THE VIDEO OR LISTEN TO THE SONG, it is hideous and insulting….for everyone. You have been warned.

Out in the field, farmers grew bread….

Now THAT is a Prompt for me. Ivy the Jukebox.Β 

I have a song in my head all day every day. This was the song I was singing yesterday all day, I have a clue why is that. πŸ˜€

I drove a tractor yesterday. Yes, you read it. My life now got a fuller meaning. I also don’t have a drivers license. Just to give you the full perspective of how did the whole thing look. That considered, the opening line is perfect for yesterday and today, since I’m still at rural area near the capital. And I’m writing a post. So much dedication from this blogger. πŸ˜‰

I still don’t know if I should grace you with a photo of me on a tractor hahahaha, but I think I might regret posting that one. πŸ˜€

Enjoy in your life and you never know when great stuff will happen! (fyi; driving a tractor was my wish for over a year hahaha)

p.s. The song is from Kelly Family, my beloved band from when I was 12-13 years-old. ❀
