Patrick Jones:

The blog, Life in Russia, was nominated for the Very Inspiring Blogger Award! Congratulations! Blog on!

Recently “Life in Russia” was nominated for – Very Inspiring Blogger Award – by Patrick Jones at “The Linden Chronicles.” He has the same passion for paleo-anthropology and archaeology that I do, plus the fact we are both writers.

When something like this happens I’m always thankful but realize the inspiration I receive comes not from myself but from those around me. I’ve been very blessed to have had many wonderful guest bloggers here at “Life in Russia“. Plus I’m constantly scouring the internet for fascinating stories about Russia, it’s history, people, nature all of which I’ve grown very much in awe of.

One thing that Pat and I share is our belief that everyone has their own special story. One of my favorite things to do is listen, I’m always thrilled to learn about someone’s life, where they are from, what they have…

Moving Mondays: 1st Day of Winter

Patrick Jones:

Moving Art by Louie Schwartzberg…always beautiful images to reflect life on this great planet!!

Originally posted on Moving Art by Louie Schwartzberg:


December 21st marks the first day of Winter for the Northern Hemisphere. The cold weather and smaller amount of daylight signals a shift in our behavior that can affect our mood and well-being. The duality of this season — its cold and brutal weather and the pristine beauty it can offer us — is something we should embrace as inspiring and motivating. We can find both good and bad in nearly everything in our lives; it’s up to us to decide focus on the good.

This is a season that inspires reflection and guides us to embrace the quiet and the darkness as periods of potential growth. We all need time to slow down and turn in.  And if the shortest day of the year depresses you, I hope you will remember this: The Winter Solstice marks the return of the light. The days will only get longer from here on out!
