Slavonic

This refined architecture of ancient buildings inspires me incredibly much, Russian churches with these burning onion domes remind me of bright candlelight in the mists of time. Involuntarily begin to think that today we are alive, but how about tomorrow? What does tomorrow hold? God give or withhold His gifts according to the faith. How beautifully said, how eternal these words are.

Меня чрезвычайно сильно вдохновляет изысканная архитектура старых зданий, русских церквей с этими луковичными куполами вздымающимися ввысь точно стройные, горящие золотом свечки на фоне темнеющих вечерних небес. Невольно задумываешься, сегодня мы живы, а завтра? Что будет завтра? Каждому будет дано по вере его. Прекрасна эта вещая песня, вечные слова.

  1. Faith is important...even if one is not religious believing in something greater than ourself is needed...everyone must find their own moral compass and faith is often the arrow on the compass without which we would be lost.

    You look absolutely beautiful...curly hair suits you so lovely...under this light it looks red...perhaps I was wrong to assume you are a brunette now?

    The outfit is very stylish, I immensly like the blue jeans and jacket combination....flawless casual styling.

    I really like traditional built or old churches, usually I like them better the older they are...there is something calming about the fact that a place was a source of comfort for so long.

    1. No, I'm not red at all, it's just the play of light and shadow on the photographs.
      Ivana, thank you for your poetic and true comment, when I'm reading your thoughts I feel like I'm reading a book, which is full of living wisdom and knowledge.

    2. You are too kind, I don't have a feeling that I'm especially wise but I will admit that expressing myself through words comes naturally to me because I have worked a lot on my writing skills.
      My hair also sometimes looks red in the sun, despite the fact that it is really dark brown, almost black...light can be a strange thing.

  2. Саша, я тоже всегда задумываюсь над этим! И вера очень много значит в моей жизни.
    Архитектура действительно потрясающая, очень вдохновляет:)
    Любуюсь твоим новым оттенком волос, роскошный!

  3. I think the reason why cameras are banned is because the flashes can damage oil paintings, change their original colour and cause them to decay in time. I guess the reason why it wasn't forbidden to take photos in this exhibition is that the painting were from private collections, painted by lesser known painters. If they were famous paintings, they would probably be off limits for cameras...there is always also an issue of copy and legal rights, a painting or a work of art can be protected against copying in this way.

    ...and yes, I always feel better when I see something beautiful, something that soothes my soul.

  4. Мне тоже нравятся купола русских церквей. Нижний Новгород красивейший город с массой архитектурных шедевров. Надеюсь, это не изменится!

    1. Ох, Лера, а мне как бы хотелось, чтобы лицо города не искажалось гримасой современности, ты бы знала, как уродуют старинные купеческие дома и усадьбы непотребными рекламными постерами, сносят старые дома, а на их месте возводят очередные бездушные торговые центры.

    Thanks for the lovely comment too! I really wish we could transport back in time sometimes. I bet this building would be even more splendid to see in a previous lifetime.

  7. I would love to visit Russia and see more of these beautiful churches! The architecture is really amazing and we do not have anything similar to that in Germany - nothing as payful. I guess the German architects have never been playful (with a few exceptions, like Hunderwasser). Anyway, I love this light blue look on you! It somehow makes you look a little fragile, but in a good way :)

  9. Что меня цепляет больше всего, это осознание того, что все это было задумано с какой-то целью, и построено с душой, человеческими руками.

  12. Dear Alexandra, not only your outfit but also the pictures are perfect! You look adorable and these blue shades are fitting perfect to you <3
    I understand that such old buildings bring you to think ... similar thoughts are coming often to me when I watch the Alps. And in my mind there are then thoughts like this: You, the Alps, have been already for such a long time, and you will be there for a long time in the future. And in comparison with my life this period shows me how short my life in fact is ...
    Happy weekend for you!

  18. Александра спасибо за ваши вдохновляющие посты, прекрасно подобранную музыку и теплоту в блоге.
    Каждому будет дано по вере его. Очень сильная и глубокая фраза из Библии. Она заставила меня задуматься о своем.

  27. Чудесный образ! Кольцо очень понравилось))

  28. Alex, there's something so different about you here. I know, it's your hair! I'm always used to seeing you as a beautiful blonde garden or water nymph. You always look ethereal even when clad in modern clothing. Over here, you look just so modern and chic. I'm not sure if you are a brunette or have auburn hair here and your curls, I don't think I've seen such curls on you before. Is this a throwback post or you had a new look recently?

    Your words are always so poetic and some of your own quotes, I could actually remember. Those beautiful words are etched in my mind and I feel as if they are my thoughts at times. What sorcery are yoy practising on me? Hehehe

  29. Обожаю старые здания. Когда вижу - сразу начинаю думать, что за люди там жили или бывали, о чем они думали, о чем мечтали...
