About in shade
A cocktail of personality traits hard to digest for some but ultimately soothing for those who can. I observe, enjoy, travel, interact, photograph, dance, contemplate, write and love my way through this life's countless occurrences. This blog is a way to share with the world and its people some of the treasures they give me every day.

Scandinavia in a Week – Because, Well, Why Not? Amsterdam-Copenhagen-Kjerag-Stockholm-Helsinki, September 2013
You know you have great friends when they need to drive from Prague (Czech Republic. Not the same thing as Chechnya 😉 ) to Tomsk (yes – drive, as in, by car. And yes, Tomsk is in Siberia, Russia) with a little … Continue reading
When a friend comes to town for a short visit over the weekend, all sorts of things end up happening that normally wouldn’t. For instance, me dragging my butt out to several places over only two nights… IN THE COLD!!! … Continue reading
Little things in life sometimes get lost between the bigger events. It is a sad loss, as those little things are often just as significant. They make up the fabric of one’s life story, after all, and all that major … Continue reading
Last time I had a plan for a few relaxing months, I ended up living out of a suitcase. I start suspecting it’s a bit similar to the effect of my ‘I’ll get home early today’ mantra… Except when I … Continue reading
It is confession time, my dearest, and I’d lay it all out for you plain and clear, no secrets. Here is the truth: I may have a favorite man, or maybe a few, but I can never get enough. Each … Continue reading
Maybe it wasn’t as extreme as in the movie “Terminal” (watch if you haven’t seen yet!), but I did get to bond with Schipol airport a bit closer than I expected to over the past week… I swear it wasn’t … Continue reading
A near car-crash, state of zero gravity, a crazy mouse, a bench up the tree and a murdered dog: just another normal Friday.
16.03.2012. Morning. I’m not sure if it was lack of sleep the night before, lack of coffee in the brain cells, or a simple system failure, but during the morning driving lesson I was supposed to turn right at one … Continue reading
Greetings to everyone from the first day of 2012! I was wondering what type of a message to release into the world at the new symbolic beginning cornerstone and the message actually fell into my hands all by itself. Thus, … Continue reading
Incredibly moving speech: Mental Illness and Why The Skeptic Community Should Give a Shit, JT Eberhard Skepticon 4
You may think mental illness does not concern you, but you are mistaken. Right the very now you have a friend who suffers from some form of mental disorder. Or maybe you do but you think there is something wrong … Continue reading
The Independence Day in Warsaw was marked by sunshine and violent clashes between anarchists and neo-nazi groupings, whose demonstrating marches’ paths across the city wound past the hotel, where the conference I am attending is being held. We were advised … Continue reading
A few years ago I got talked into a parachute jump by someone from the dance community (this, of course, makes perfect sense 😀 ). We have arrived at the small airport, got enough training in those few evening hours … Continue reading
Human brain is a peculiar thing with many glitches and self-repairing systems coexisting harmoniously inside it… For instance, memories of long-past events may wear out of our conscious recollection’s reach very easily and rapidly. Fortunately, the brain tends to recall at … Continue reading
Words to live by from a Persian poet, Abol Sa’id Abolkheir: “A tamed mistress in the house is not of much use, She’ll give her heart to you and never look at another man. What’s needed is a dancer from … Continue reading
Without any exception. Meaning I am never, EVER wrong about anything. I also know everything. About everything. I am absolutely omniscient and I want this to be known to everyone – make no mistake: I know it all about all … Continue reading
