A SIMPLE HELLO

You might have noticed I changed the name of my blog. I already did that a couple of times since 2011. Why? I don’t know. I am always changing and along comes a new blog title. Matters of Simplicity was with me for a very long time, mostly during my Blogger adventure. So, I needed something new, fresh and, well, simple. A simple hello is what I like and think it fits nice with the design. The meaning behind is dear to my heart. It is about that first, simple step. That symbolic (or literal) hello could enrich your day or even your entire life. Whether it’s a new blog you follow, a book you read or a new person in your life you met because of that first hello. Anywho, enough with the meaning of life. I don’t wanna overdo it.

So, how’s your week been thus far? We’ve been having lots and lots of rain. Even now, as I write, is pouring outside. I woke up very early this morning. Actually, rain and thunders woke me up. Not to mention I didn’t have a lot of sleep and was waking up every hour. I made a cup of coffee when I noticed a beautiful moody, diffused light coming from my rainy window. When I see such moments, I leave everything behind and go straight for the camera. I can’t tell you enough how much I love rain in the early mornings. The start of the day, waking up slowly with a cup of coffee by your side. No straight on instant sun in your face the moment you open your eyes. Especially during the summer when we  usually wake up surrounded by puddles of sweat. Don’t get me wrong, the sun is beautiful, warm, life-giving, Godly… just not in the morning, for  me. Hehe.

No, I didn’t stop there, shooting cups of coffee. I picked up my umbrella, camera, flip flops and headed out of the door. As you can see, it was an epic downpour. So, me and my pink umbrella were the only ones willingly on the street. I must say, I got accustomed to taking photos no matter of the weird stares from my neighbors. And, I think they got accustomed to me taking photos there, too. Haha. Just wait until autumn comes, I’ll be takings snaps of pumpkins in the middle of the street. Wouldn’t be my first time, guys.

As the weather is clearing up now, it would be fair to end the post here. This is a moody, rainy post after all. Try to enjoy the rain. I know it’s easier to say than do but, try. Make the best of it. God bless.

    Ines, you couldn’t imagine how deeply this post have touched me! I don’t know if you’re knowing, but here in Brazil we’re passing by a deep lack of rain. And that’s one thing I’ve never imagined that could happen in my country, you know? A country with such dimension of water been facing such problem, is just too sad and too hard to believe…
    I guess when it’s about nature, you know, about man vs. nature, we may expected and be prepared for everything.
    I don’t know for how long this lack will last. But I hope that everyone (especially people here in Brazil) realized now that is more than late to we wake up and started to do something to help our world.
    Anyway, sorry to bother you with this long comment, but I just had to share this to someone that’s away of our reality, do you understand? That’s far from my country. ‘Cause I’ve always felt sorry and felt bad with the realities that are happening with other countries, but just now I’ve this such terrible idea, you know? To felt what it’s like…
    God bless you, your beautiful and blessed rain!
    <3

      Aline, I really feel for you and the situation in your country. No extreme weather is good, rain or no rain. It is always that way – When something is gone, we realize the true value of it.
      May God bless you and your country and bring you some rain soon!
      Thank you.

    The photos are as always beautiful! I love watching Croatia through your eyes. I have been following the blog for quite a few years now, the simplicity of the pictures always keeps me hooked.
    Hopefully one day I will be able to visit this beautiful country.
