Illustration of the day (Hope) / Ilustracija dana (Nada)

The place to look for hope is deep inside of us
Nadu treba tražiti u dubini vlastitog bića. U nekim stvarima se ne smijemo oslanjati na druge. Svatko od nas je odgovaran za sebe. Nada ne ovisi o vanjskim okolnostima, ona nas može pratiti i u najmračnijim vremenima i kada smo posve sami. No, moramo nadi otvoriti vrata, moramo je pozvati u svoj život da bismo je mogli naći u srcu i duši. Moramo shvatiti da nada ne mora uvijek imati smisla. Ponekad se osjećaj nade pojavljuje u najapsurdnijim tradegijama, ali možda je to zbog toga što nam je tada najviše potreban.  Logika je ipak samo početak mudrosti, a racionalnim ne bismo nikad trebali gušiti nadu. Nadi je potreban zrak, a taj zrak je tiho povjerenje, slično onom koje postoji između starih prijatelja koji se razumiju bez riječi.

We should look for hope within the dept of our own being. When it comes to certain things, it is better not to lean on others. Each and every one of us is responsible for ourselves. Hope doesn't depend on circumstances and facts of life. We can be accompanied by hope even in the darkest times and the most lonely hours of our life. However, we must invite hope into our lives to be able to find it in our heart and soul. We must accept that hope will not always make sense. Sometimes the feeling of hope appears in the most absurd of tragedies, but that may be because that is when we need it the most.  Logic is only the beginning of wisdom.  Rationalism should never suffocate hope. Hope needs air to breathe and that air is in fact a silent trust, the kind of trust that exists between old friends who can understand one another without uttering a single word.

  10. Hope ... seems a very complicated word, I agree with you that the ideal place to find it is in it ourselves, but our Christian Jew education, at least in Mexico is what prevails, and the mistake is that hope is sought in religion ... I will stop my anti-religion speech. I loved the picture, thanks for sharing.

    1. No religion can claim to have the monopoly on hope, there are pleanty of people in this world who aren't religious at all but are still hopeful and have a developed sense of ethics that some religious people lack...so there are no rules.

  14. Hope is best found in....PIZZA!!! :) Ah but really, dear, nice writing. I stay hopeful, too hopeful. I am constantly imagining situations and settings where the best outcome takes place and surprised when it does not. It is very frustrating because people are so confused and random, but the thinking of these things is so fun I would hate to give it up.

  16. Such a lovely drawing with full of emotions and meaning :)
    There comes a time in our lives that we lose hope for something-- i think we need to stand brave and face the fact that we need to move on with our lives.

    Love this inspirational post

  22. Divno rečeno. Sećam se i sama nekih baš ružnih situacija i perioda. Nada je čudo koje ne očekuješ tada, ali se ipak pojavi.
    Crtež je takođe prelep, sviđa mi se kako si napravila kosu od cvetića :)

All your comments mean a lot to me, even the criticism. Naravno da mi puno znači što ste uzeli vrijeme da nešto napišete, pa makar to bila i kritika. Per me le vostre parole sono sempre preziose anche quando si tratta di critiche.

KAFKA ON THE SHORE, A NOVEL BY HARUKI MURAKAMI (BOOK REVIEW & OUTFIT PROPOSAL)

Hello, my darlings! I will be sharing two things with you today: a book review and an outfit post. This cozy outfit proposal features two printed items: a printed scarf and a skirt. The bluish scarf was a gift from a friend and I like how it looks with this camel coat (another gifted item). The wool/silk printed skirt is old, a creation from fashion house Edi. You had a change of seeing this unique floral print on the blog here , here and here. Under the camel coat I have worn this white blouse and this red blazer.  I completed the outfit with a red beanie and high brown boots.  It has gotten colder in Croatia even on the shore. Speaking of the shore, Kafka on the Shore is the novel I will be reviewing today. 
MURAKAMI, A WRITER THAT REMINDS ME OF A CAT
Murakami is a writer whom most readers either love or dislike. Options are rather divided when it comes to Murakami, some say he is genius, other claim all his novels are alike. Do you know of whom does Murakami reminds me? Of a cat! He…

AN AUTUMN OUTFIT AND A BOOK REVIEW (EAST WEST BY SALMAN RUSHDIE)

Hello darlings! It's suddenly gotten a lot colder here, but I still have one warm autumn styling proposal to share with you. I wore this cute neutral outfit while the sun was still shining bright. On that lovely sunny day, I decided to pair my white (authentic) folklore shirt with a striped mini, dark leggings and a dark green vest. I finished this look with my brown boots and a tartan belt. Besides this outfit, I will share another book review on my blog today. East West by Salman Rushdie also happens to falls into category of magic realism. I'm no stranger to Salman Rushdie,  I read Midnight's children a while back and I started but never finished Satanic Verses. This is the first time I read his short stories, though.  I really liked this collection and I can't wait to tell you all about it.

THE WONDERFUL WIZARD OF OZ BY L.FRANK BAUM (BOOK REVIEW)

Today I'll review a true classic of children's literature: The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, a book by L. Frank Baum. I have read this book fairly recently, so it is still fresh in my mind. I have to admit that I was pleasantly surprised by The Wonderful Wizard of Oz. I actually enjoyed it a lot, so my book review is also  a book recommendation.  This classic of children literature is such a well rounded tale. You can read The  Wonderful Wizard of Oz for free on the pages of project Gutenberg here (that's also the source for the quotes I'm going to use).

First, a few words from the author himself:  Folklore, legends, myths and fairy tales have followed childhood through the ages, for every healthy youngster has a wholesome and instinctive love for stories fantastic, marvelous and manifestly unreal. The winged fairies of Grimm and Andersen have brought more happiness to childish hearts than all other human creations.Yet the old time fairy tale, having served for generations, m…
