The Photo Challenge #36 – Earth

Tomorrow is Earth Day, the yearly worldwide celebration of our beautiful planet. This week’s photo challenge is inspired by this theme and here is my contribution.

I was heartbroken when I first read that the Azure Window in Gozo had crashed into the sea. It was a really special place, kind of magical, and I’m glad I had the opportunity to see it while it was still standing, back in 2014. I guess, Mother Nature gives and Mother Nature takes, but I’m a little sad anyways.

The Photo Challenge #30 – Solitude

I value solitude highly. Sometimes it is very important to explore your inner life and I enjoy doing it. Unfortunately, at times I get so caught in my thoughts that they transform the way I see reality. I’m trying to learn how to listen to them without letting them rule me. That said, I think we all need some time to disconnect and reflect about life. I mean, I love blogging and I recently started an Instagram account, but I’m definitely not one of those people who cannot live without their smartphone.

In this picture, you see my back (well, mostly my hair) while I was relaxing on top of the Dingli Cliffs, in Malta, doing absolutely nothing. In those ten minutes of solitude I could suck in all the beauty of the island and build a memory that will hopefully last forever.
