Fairy’s diary

Last week I visited Zlatibor mountain, a little piece of heaven located in the south-western part of Serbia.

There is a beautiful story behind the name Zlatibor ( engl. Golden pine). The name came from a very special species of Scots pine (lat. Pinus sylvestris) Pinus sylvestris variegata Zlatiborica, and I must say what a pine. So graceful, upright with his mighty green branches, covered in snow like a pearl. I fell in love immediately. I could just stand there for the hours and admire its beauty. How can nature be perfect like that? Just amazing!!

Unfortunately the  prevalence of the pine is reduced to the location of just one village called Negbini, and is now under the protection of the state. That is really  disheartening. What are we doing? Or worse, what are we not doing? How can we just sit in silence and watch it all go away? Nature gives us so much, and we’re not giving anything back, we’re not even saying “thank you”.

If we all want to continue enjoying these mesmerizing views, these captivating pictures we need to act. Really! We need to act fast! Save the great beauty, protect the wild diversity.

I pledge to be the voice of nature, I pledge to devote my life to protect it with all the little creatures living in the hollow spaces, and I invite you to do the same.

Winter wonderland

 I would like to tell you little something about me…

I’m a summer child, in love with the sea, sand under my feet and the smell of the old pine trees spreading their green crowns and waving at the blue sky. I’m in love with the warm hugs and gentle bruises sun is leaving on my skin. I’m in love with the summer nights, decorated with the most beautiful diamante stars. I’m in love with the grasshoppers music, and the vibrant motion of the living creatures. I’m in love with colors and the lightness of the summer life.

But, today is January. The colors, stars and the busy little creatures are hibernating, taking pleasure in their beauty sleep. Ohh, how I envy them, I must say… wake me up when winter ends.

The vast seas of green are dressed in the seas of white. The mountains are sleeping, and the skies have put away their jewelry stars under the clouds.The white coat has laid its crystals all over the trees and put to ease even the steamiest waters. Everything is quite and peaceful waiting for the sun to come closer and love us again.

But still, no matter what mother nature does, she does it impeccable. Her white dresses, are mesmerizing, looking all the same yet so different. The happiness saved in the white crystal threads is immeasurable. True masterpiece, created with the transient brushes on the most valuable canvas.
