A random rainy afternoon in Rome

Photobucket

Spring just does not want to come to us! The thing I love about Rome so much is whenever I find myself alone in the city, I never really feel like it. The city with it's sunny romantical atmosphere and bright colours is a great companion, even when it's rainy.

Well, did you enjoy my little virtual tour in Rome?:)
Sorry for the lack of posts, but I have three more weeks to go and then I'll be free from school! This means tons of posts!!!
After that I decided I won't go working and I'll dedicate myself entirely on my art. It was quite hard decision to make as I had planned already many vacations and fun stuff and now I really don't now where I'll end up spending my holidays, if I'll get the chance to have one at all.. But as I say, life is a one big choice and big dreams equal big responsabilities.
What do you think?
PS! Have a lovely week start!

Pics are lovely as always! You have the talent, potential, "eye for the art" - make it work for your benefit!!!!! and it will pay you off ten times.

If you want to keep your eyes on the big prize you have to let go the smaller ones. That's just how it works. :)

Enjoy what you do, put your heart and soul into this coz it will show in the pics and in the work and this will earn you success and respect. That's the key. If you don't love what you do, then no one else will. ;)

lots of love form cold and rainy Tallinn

Marizzaa!!! Thank you for your words and thoughts!! You are 110% right, I'm sure the big prize will be worth alll of it, like ALLLL of it. And even in the end, if you don't get the "big prize" you still won, becuase you know you did EVERYTHING there was to do, right? :) SENDING YOU BIG HUGSSSS FROM RAINY ROME!!!:D

though I kind of hate this expression due to its particular cliché-like nature, it makes a strong point:
aim for the moon, coz even if you don't make it you'll end up amongst the stars...
and of course some classics:
the only goal you don't achieve is the one you don't go after...

ok, i'm done with the cliché part. from now on only very particular ad strong "very Mariska like" opinions :D:D:D:D

ahhh I love clichées!!:D I love the first one especially, guess I'm one romantical soul.. but yes, just to "harmonize" things bring all your Mariska like opinions on the table, we miss it with Vic !!!!:D

White rabbit said...

Sinu blogi on alati nii mõnus siseneda. Eriti siis kui mõni uus postitus on ootamas :)

Taaskord väga nauditav fotovalik!

Muide siin on ka päike välja vahetatud üsna külma ilma ja vihmaga! :(

Isn't it funny how I was reading your post and it seems like you were reading mine at the same time or nearly the same time, because I just got an email notification of your comment on mine? :)

I loooove those pictures of yours! Amazing little picture tour of Rome and I love it how you went off the beaten path and showed us something we don't always get to see when looking at photos og Rome! :) I also love how you say that big dreams equal big responcibilities - very true! And I would aslo add that big dreams require some big life decisions too, some big, major, important desicions.

Coinsidentially I posted about streets too, and well, I've never been to Tallin, so maybe that's why this street in Moscow doesn't remind me of it but it somehow really reminded me of Milan!..

Café Naïveté said...

Thanks Kàrt & White Rabbit & Julia:)

Julia, soon I think I'll have all the time you virtually more around Rome in all small and nice places, I'll but all myself in it;) Yes, I guess you are right about big decisions, I guess you cannot always have what you dream without making some hard choices and decisions.

PS! who knows, now that school is going to end, I'll have some time to take you all to Tallinn too (if you remember I promised you a long time ago to post the pictures of my winter trip to Tallinn)!!

Nice tour!!!! Reminds me of my trip to Rome two years ago. The sun, the architecture, the people, the pizza (yummy), the ice creams (yummy yummy) and the beautiful hidden spots!!
