Purity

How beautiful and pure this forest is, the blue ribbon of the river and huge infinite skies above it. The whole nature is filled with the most unique breath of autumn, it stands motionless in anxious expectation of changes. When I was studying at school we always had a long summer reading list consisted of classic literature mostly, a good few of those books was left on a shelf unread, though. Only now I feel like I'm able to understand the true meaning of all those books. The books which speak to us about life and death, true love and courage, which are so universal and affect us a lot. Books of this kind are seared into the memory, they are impossible to forget.
............................................................................
Как красивы и чисты этот лес, и лента реки и большое небо над ней. Неповторимое дыхание осени священным трепетом ожидания наполняет все вокруг. Помню, в школе всегда задавали внушительный список литературы на лето и к концу августа становилось немного страшно от количества непрочитанных книг. Ведь только теперь начинаешь понимать всю ценность того, что в детстве казалось непостижимым. Есть такие книги, что оставляют неизгладимый след в памяти, преображают сознание. Книги, в которых говорится о любви, о жизни и смерти, о храбрости и истинной чести, бессмертности человеческой души.
With best wishes, Alexandra.

  3. I can imagine what it feels like to be in that forest...and to breathe in the smell of autumn! Wonderful photography, it almost transports me there...

    I always loved reading the classics, it's like I can never get tired of them. However, it seems to be that only now I can appreciate them. The older I get the easier I find it to sympathize with all the characters...not necessarily approving their actions but understanding them. We're such fragile creatures, us humans..so easy it is for us to lost our way in this world... I think best classic novels capture that or better said, capture both the fragile and the strong side of us...and sometimes it is easy to mistake the two, sometimes what feels like strength is really a weakness and the other way around...

    I sometimes wonder does it makes sense to make adolescent read such difficult books but I think it is better that they do. Perhaps our Croatian language curriculum is really difficult (they have to read so many books in one year, not just Croatian authors but all the famous ones) but better that then to have a situation where people can graduate high-school without reading any of the classics...a situation in which people consider themselves accomplished if they read one big book. Not that I think they everyone must love or read books...but literature should be a part of education and if we don't introduce it to children they may never learn to love it. Books mean more to me now than they used to when I was a teenager but even then they would leave an impression on me...I'm a bit off topic, but it is something that has been on my mind lately.

    The dress you have on is pure magic! Its colour complements your eye colour...you do really look so lovely! I really like the last photo...the one with the bag, the clock print reminds me of the passage of time...there is something melancholic about it.

  4. Когда ты рассказывала о непрочитанных на летних каникулах книгах, мне сразу в памяти "всплыл" Толстой, почему-то его "Война и мир" тогда был для меня самым непостижимым романом, и только после школы я прочла от корки до корки с огромным удовольствием))
    Саша, твой образ меня просто покорил!Такой нежный и воздушный, очено красивый цвет платья и кружевная отделка. А сумочка какая классная!

  16. Oh yes, I remember when I was in school they wanted us to read books that we totally didn't understand. I have read a book twice - once in the 6th grade and second time in 12th grade. The second time was absolutely different and I had a different view over the book. I must say I love Russian literature, Alexandra! I have read many Russian writers and my favourite is Pushkin! You look like a fairy from a fairy tale! Have a lovely weekend!

  19. Саша,я всегда любуюсь твоими нарядами,особенно платьями,это такое нежное и его цвет напоминает мне о ранней весне!ты знаешь,в последнее время я как-то мало читаю,даже,и не знаю почему,произведения классической литературы могу перечитывать по несколько раз,а вот самостоятельно выбрать что-то из современной литературы,не руководствуясь советом или отзывом,крайне сложно для меня,а,может,все дело в современном ритме жизни и наличии интернета))

  22. Dear Alexandra, your dress is adorable and you look again like a beautiful princess in it <3 You have chosen the perfect location for this dress and I agree to the thoughts you mention here. Books have a very important role in my life and normally I read daily in books besides my lecture in the internet. Reading is relaxing me and teaches, consoles and helps me in many respects. Happy weekend!

  28. Просто сказочные фотографии! Образ ассоциируется у меня как раз с началом осени, когда всё чаше проводишь вечер дома, погружаясь в чтение и в мыслях оживают волшебные образы сказочных героинь, вот таких как ты)
    Мне, кстати, летом меньше чатается, а вот все холодные сезоны - да, это самое время для чтения, так что в бой идёт очередной список книг.
