Marie Antoinette Golden Chariot

November 4, 2014

This restored  unique historical exhibit – the golden chariot which has belonged to Queen Marie Antoinette – can be found in the Museum of History in Sofia. King Ferdinand had received it as a wedding gift from his mother Princess Clémentine of Orléans, daughter of the French King Louis Philippe. Amazing craftmanship.

Diana Miteva

Diana from mythology is associated with “heavenly” and “divine”.

Diana on the photo here – too.

The celestial character of Diana is reflected in her connection with light and her preference for dwelling in sacred places.

The earthly character of Diana Miteva – too.

In Jean Cocteau’s film ‘La Belle et la Bête’  it is Diana‘s power which transformed the beast.

In her life Diana also contributes to transforming things and people from good to great! With best wishes from around the world and me :-)

A Man Called Ove

The deeply moving story of grumpy Ove who is fifty-nine and drives a Saab. “He’s the kind of man who points at people he dislikes, as if they were burglars caught outside his bedroom window. ”

A Man Called Ove – the debut book of Swedish blogger Fredrik Backman. A charmingly sad story which makes you laugh and cry as the narrative unfolds and an end revealing the profound impact one life can have on others.

Why we do what we do

October 13, 2014

Tony Robins’ TED Talk Why we do what we do – an invigorating talk on the “invisible forces” that motivate everyone’s actions. Needs of the personality and needs of the spirit.  ‘And the reason we grow is so we have something to give of value,  contributing beyond ourselves.’

What’s driving us: needs, beliefs, emotions. What’s driving other people. ‘The defining factor is never resources; it’s resourcefulness.’
