What to do when the electricity goes off?

What to do when the electricity goes off? Have you thought about how used we are to the electricity and how it influences our life?

My morning usually starts with a cup of coffee and writing/reading posts, reading newspaper articles or simply just throwing myself directly to work. (That doesn’t happen that often). I love mornings and usually I get up really early, but give my body and my mind all the time in the world to wake up, and embrace the new day.

The other day electricity went off in the whole area, and I noticed soon that it’s not just electricity that went off, but my morning habit ‘went off’ as well! 😉

I couldn’t make coffee. I couldn’t start work, as I need laptop and battery was low. So, I put on some clothes and I went on a mission to find a bar with electricity, i.e. coffee. It was around 9 a.m. All the bars were empty, but luckily I noticed one bar was packed, and that meant ‘Coffee is Available Here!’ I started walking towards the bar, almost hypnotised. I stepped inside and noticed that there was no free table. All the people working in the area were here. They were probably taking an early break and waiting for the electricity to return. I took coffee to go and headed towards the apartment. It was raining the night before and there was a huge storm, hence, the shortage of electricity.

I opened my diary and started writing. I loved that my routine was shaken up a bit. I got to smell the fresh air after the rain, discover the bar that serves coffee even when the whole neighbourhood is out of electricity, and I got a lovely paper cup in different colours that really shook the greyness of that day upside down.

Anyhow, it was a lovely morning.


Ode to autumn

So, as already mentioned in my earlier posts  … I’ve started spending more time in the nature lately and less in the crowded smoky areas. I’ve started observing the life, everyday life mostly with its miniature elements, from a different angle.

I’ve always had an eye for small things, but I feel I’ve started noticing them even more lately, probably due to the lack of hangovers during the weekends. My mind is clearer. 🙂

I took a walk around the block the other day. We live very near to the lake and the forest. We are lucky to be surrounded by a beautiful nature and amazing, rich market that’s just a few metres away from where we live.

This is my little ode to the autumn expressed in pictures. Hope you’ll like it! I love to look at the tree tops when I walk, but when the earth below me is covered with leaves that rustle under my feet, and when I have Converse on, I just enjoy pointing my eyes down, towards the ground.
