Stop The Press – I challenge me

Dear Diary, It has come to this… I’ve succumbed to blogging-world pressure or I’ve progressed to the next stage of the bloggdom. Whichever way you want to look at it. Thus, I challenge myself to the 30 days blogging challenge I’ve read several articles on both WordPress and Medium and noticed that such challenges do…

New Year Morning Conversation

Dear Diary, What does happen on New Year Morning? Does the world change? Do the clouds swim differently across the sky? Do trees sway in a new fashion in the summer wind? Is the wind new? Is it the wind of change? A Conversation like this is as good as any on the New Year Morning. I…

What if it happens?

Dear Diary, Just to mix things a bit and to step away from by book reviewing duties, I’d like to share with you and my readers my insights into dream-making. What do you say?…   You dream a dream. You dream many dreams. You make a wish. You make a hundred. Do you know what…

Dreams are not to be made..

Dear Diary, I was cleaning up my blog and found this unpublished post in the ‘Drafts’ section. It looks like once upon 2017 I was going to write something about the dreams and reasons why we should and shouldn’t make them. So here it is. I read in one of the blogs I follow (@Her…

2017 has been and gone

Dear Diary, 2017 has been and gone. We are already half-way through 1st January 2018. It seems that everyone is writing reports, reviews, observations and draws conclusions from the year it’s been and is making plans for the future 364 days. I will not do such a thing. I do not think it is necessary,…

How to measure loneliness…

Dear Diary, It hit me the other day. It really hit me. I am alone. I feel alone. I feel lonely. Well, I have my family. I have my child. But I am alone and lonely. This world is sick and screwed if women like me come to the point when they admit to themselves…

Где взять такой замок

Вы все еще спрашиваете, почему мой блог называется Снежная Королева? Да, почитайте мою же сказку про нее и поймете. А если не поймете, я вам объясню еще раз, так чтоб вы поняли, а я для себя прояснила… Так вот, Снежная Королева – она уже счастливая. И если не счастлива, то хотя бы спокойна и сдержана,…

Как разбивается сердце. Инструкция по…

Ты знаешь, как разбивается сердце? Сначала в него втыкаются острые иголки. Везде-везде. Маленькие такие, но очень острые. Потом, от этих иголок начинают ползти трещены. А потом… В какой-то совсем не прекрасный момент в ушах загудит. Глаза сами собой сильно-сильно зажмурятся. Во рту пересохнет. Ноги подогнутся от бессилия. И внутри что-то сожментся, сдавит до скрипа зубами…

Cancer Cancel and Vice Versa

A few month ago I came across this article You May Want To Marry My Husband by Amy Kruse Rosenthal No wonder the word cancer and cancel look so similar and it took me. It took me and turned me and twisted me and turned me upside down and inside out. I know what this woman means….

Thoughts of the day: Thursday

Dear Diary, Here is my bit for today. Trust me. It happens to the best of us. My initial thought was to turn around and go back home for my mobile (cell phone). However, I was running late already and decided not to do it (Hindsight is a tricky thing. I should have gone home)….
