The term Pietà finds its roots in the Italian word for “pity” and the Latin word for “piety.” Heartrending, this composition depicts the Virgin Mary cradling the dead body of her son Jesus in her loving arms.
The most successful and eponymous depiction of the Pieta is undoubtedly that created by Michelangelo. He was only 24 when the French Cardinal Jean de Bilheres commissioned this statue as his funeral monument. Michelangelo at once set to work. He secured a block of Carrara marble, which he later claimed was the most “perfect” block of marble that he had ever used, and began to chisel, carefully transforming the stone into flesh.
The proportions are not symmetrical and natural. Mary would tower in stature over her Son if she stood up. Michelangelo, in all his creative genius, hides this enlargement with exquisite, lifelike folds of a full-length drapery.

Landscapes in Iceland can sometimes make me so emotional... and specially this place, one of my favorite places in Iceland! Different landscape wherever you look and so dramatic, just makes you wanna cry because it’s so beautiful 🖤
The name ‘Chatsworth’ is a corruption of Chetel’s-worth, meaning ‘The court of Chetel’, which dates back to the 11th Century where a man of Norse origin, named Cheryl, held the lands now know as Chatsworth.
Following Chetel being disposed of, Chatsworth ceased to exist until the 15th century, when it was acquired by the Leche family who lived nearby.
The Leche family enclosed the first park at Chatsworth and built a house, the beginnings of the modern day Chatsworth estate we know and love!

Iceland from above. For me this river looks like on another planet. I always be impressed by this incredible nature.
Мне вот интересно почему люди в инстаграме так любят лайкать одно и тоже. Мои последние фотографии с озера Lago di Carezza и треугольного домика в Исландии собрали активности намного больше других. Но таких фотографий практически 1 в 1 я видел сотни. И все они были популярны. Да места конечно красивые, но снять что то новое там уже сложно. И этими фото я не горжусь. А когда закидываешь то, что действительно для тебе чего то стоит - оно проходит без внимания. Не понимаю этой зависимости инстаграма. А ведь много фотографов ездят от одной распиаренной локации к другой, не создавая ничего нового, но при этом они жутко популярны в сети.
А вы сто думаете по этому поводу?
This is what I wanted to write since so many moons but couldn't managed earlier. Sharing one part of my story and here it is! .
I don't care.
And it's not because I'm careless.
Nor is it that I lack the ability to give off my emotions. It's because I know what it's like to care too much and give until my cup is so empty. And even when it matters where someone doesn't like me at first glance, how I'm supposed to make them love me?
I refuse to beg anyone for a chance. When I act, I act consciously. It's because He is watching me. And I don't care if I've to apologize when I err, because saying sorry doesn't tire me.
My ego can take a nice long seat as it watches me remember the dirt is related to me.
I do put energy into caring.
Actually I care alot when I care.
But I'm not going to wear myself out with caring About things that are only meant to break me to the point that I could tear myself apart.
I don't care if someone chooses to walk away for no reason.
And if someone has made the choice to be too busy to care about a friendship that we planted, I simply don't care.
Because there's more important things to care about, than who chooses to be here and who chooses to be there.
And if someone wants to be unkind, I really don't care. Because may be they've got circumstances that have made them behave this way.
Or may be they forgot that God & His angels are there.
I simply don't have time to care about anything that will take me away from being present.
And I'm so imperfect but it's perfect because I've so much I can choose to work on. Alhumdulillah. I care when I need to.
I know how to care.
But there are certain things I've chosen not to carry in my heart and shoulders.
To which I've worked hard to say; I sincerely don't care.
How many of you have faced this?

“Eyes on the prize!” Been working on a new blog post for about a week and am hoping to finally finish it tonight. Is it still considered procrastination when you totally don’t have enough time in your day to finish something? 🙈Don’t get me wrong- I love living in this city, but I sure do miss the convenience of having family around to come to my aid at times like these. It’s true what they say- it does take a village to raise a child. And though our village is much smaller, we do have a wonderful sense of community here. But our routine is still a work in progress- kind of like me. New blog post up soon! #workinprogress
