Slow life – travel [b]log

I’m on my holidays now in the north of Poland. It’s the region between two lakes and close to the sea. It’s also the place I’ve decided to call my own Secret Garden.

It’s my third day away from home but I already feel relaxed. The pace of life is different here; the focus is different.  When you meet somebody here, you just want to say “Hello”, smile and tell them the story of your life (or listen to theirs).

It was the case with Anna, the owner of Gliniana Zagroda [Clay Haven] whose clay work you can see in some of my photos below.

I’ve wanted to show you the beginning of my time here – how I capture the moments – with or without my camera. I hope that you’ll find some inspiration here – if not for your homes, then for your most important interior – soul.

All the photos were taken by me:

I somehow thought of Sir Thomas Browne‘s spiritual testament called Religio Medici [1643], in which he writes:

“[…] we carry with us the wonders wee seeke without
us: There is all Africa, and her prodigies in us; we are that bold and adventurous piece of nature, which he that studies, wisely learnes in a compendium, what others labour at in a divided piece and endlesse volume.” [30]
We have all the knowledge and strength in us, we just need good educators to light a spark. Be grateful if you found one on your travel to selfhood.
