What do people in love do? .
❤️ They go for movies ❤️Candle light dinners ❤️ Couple Spa ❤️or may be a Romantic Holiday.. Right? .
We have been in love for very many years. We have been married for 5 years too. We really have exhausted the typical rom -com lists to do for people in love.. So we create some new experiences. We enjoy our own custom made date ideas that make us happy and get us excited and jump and give each other a high 5 and a hug and a kiss and you know the drill 😉
So this weekend we went to the @sharjahgolf to shoot some real guns and rifles. I have shot before, but my husband only shoots people in his video games. So, he got pretty excited by my suggestion. We found the place super beautiful and the experience very exhilarating, so we are getting a membership and going there again soon.. .
Who shot better you ask? My husband!! Seriously, he blew the brains of the target and our instructor couldn't believe that it was his first time. So, yours truly is actually a very #proudwife and not a #soreloser 😂 .
Would you like to read my blog if we compile all the fun things we do to keep our fun alive in this marriage? I think it will make a good #valentinesday read, what say? .
Scroll to see our pictures from the day. You don't have to want violence to love a gun is all I m saying. .
Guns 🔫& Roses🌹
It is not the absence of affection that makes a person go mad. It's the continuous presence of it, and the lingering question in your mind whether you deserve it or not. Hence the question arises, what warrants affection? Is it the physical form or our deeds that manifest us into another person's mind as a projection?
What do we love, a person or the idea of loving a person?
If we all went faceless for a while, would love survive?
Un poco tarde, pero #eneroromántico ya esta aquí, con Liebesträume de Franz Liszt! Esta es una pieza que transmite una atmósfera etérea y romántica, como la de un sueño (aunque esta interpretación no lo consiga). Aquí pueden escuchar la primera parte de la pieza.
¡Espero que la disfruten! ————————— A bit late, but #romanticjanuary has arrived, with a piece by Franz Liszt entitled Liebesträume! This piece wants to pass on to the listener an ethereal and romantic atmosphere, just like that of a dream (even if the interpretation does not achieve it). Here you can listen to the first part of the piece.
I hope you enjoy it!! #eneroromántico#romanticjanuary#franzliszt#liszt#piano#romanticismo#romanticism
Wanderer above a sea of fog - David Caspar Friedrich - 1818
Wanderer above a Sea of Fog (sometimes also referred to as "Sea of Mist") depicts a lone man, formally dressed and holding a walking cane, standing on an outcropping of rocks looking out at an inhospitable expanse. He stands perfectly still, only his hair ruffled by an unseen wind, against a tumultuous field that churns at his feet. In the background is a sky filled with white puffy clouds and the outline of mountaintops barely visible through the mist. As the man contemplates the vastness before him, the sublimity of nature is demonstrated not in a calm, serene view, but in the sheer power of what natural forces can accomplish.
Friedrich is known to have made political statements in his painting, often coded in subtle ways. The costume the figure wears was worn by students and others during Germany's Wars of Liberation; by the time of this painting, the clothing was forbidden by Germany's new ruling government. By deliberately depicting the figure in this outfit, he made a visual, albeit understated, stand against the current government.
İvan Aivazovsky, İstanbul ve boğaz, 1856 📍Istanbul, that magnificent city straddling two continents, has been the subject of countless photographers and painters throughout history. One of its most wonderful portrayers was the Russian painter, Ivan Aivazovsky. One of the most celebrated Russian painters of the 19th century, he’s still regarded as one of the doyens of the Romantic school of painting. His specialisation was in marine scenes.
This painting, A View of Istanbul and the Bosphorus, is one of the most famous of the number of scenes he painted there. Possibly painted from somewhere near the Galata Bridge, this glorious scene shows the river glowing in the sunset, with barges and ships and locals lounging about by the river, under the shadow of the unmistakeable silhouette of the Süleymaniye Mosque. 🧡

I can see the depth that your soul wants to go. I hear your deep sighs when you hold back the thoughts plague your mind. I can see the questions that are continuously running through your mind. You ask yourself will I ever be able to love again. I feel completely damaged will I ever heal? Can I start over is it possible?
My vision is no longer clear, and I don't know what real love looks like. The truth is your view is not blurry; you just have to pick up a new pair of lenses. My walls seem as though they are great castles that no one will ever be able to climb. The truth is your walls are only hurdles. My heart doesn't recognize this new voice, eyes, and hands. The truth is your soul subconsciously acknowledges without risk you will never invite love back in again. That as much as you want the familiar you long for unrecognizable.
In the unrecognizable, you see hope for future that you could have never envisioned. In the unrecognizable you begin to realize that love is made up of many stars none will ever look the same, somehow they still light up the night sky.✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨

“It is necessary to mark the greater from the lesser truth: namely the larger and more liberal idea of nature from the comparatively narrow and confined; namely that which addresses itself to the imagination from that which is solely addressed to the eye.” — J. M. W. Turner
Joseph Mallord William Turner (23 April 1775 – 19 December 1851) was an English Romantic painter, printmaker and watercolourist, known for his expressive colourisation, imaginative landscapes and turbulent, often violent marine paintings. Turner was born in Maiden Lane, Covent Garden, London, to a modest lower middle-class family. He lived in London all his life, retaining his Cockney accent and assiduously avoiding the trappings of success and fame. A child prodigy, Turner studied at the Royal Academy of Arts from 1789, enrolling when he was 14, and exhibited his first work there at 21. During this period, he also served as an architectural draftsman. He earned a steady income from commissions and sales, which due to his troubled, contrary nature, were often begrudgingly accepted. He opened his own gallery in 1804 and became professor of perspective at the Academy in 1807, where he lectured until 1828, although he was viewed as profoundly inarticulate. He traveled to Europe from 1802, typically returning with voluminous sketchbooks.
