Dear Diary - My Magical Life

Friday, September 30 2011

Dear Diary,

Weekend!
Need I say more?
Though it is the end of September, then the Weather Gods thankfully think it is summer - and after a VERY rainy and cold summer, with several cloudbursts, then we sure need it. I won't complain about my summer though. I spent two weeks in Sankt Johann in Tirol in Austria with the most wonderful sunny weather and though I at the time complained about it being too hot (heatwave), then I am today very happy about having had some real summer.
Well, if anyone reading this has magical powers, can you PLEASE make me win the lottery BIG TIME? lol... who wouldn't like to win a lot of millions? Well, it's a good thing when you can save money up for the things you need, but not such a good thing when a lot of expensive stuff are destroyed so you keep having to add new things to the to-save-up-to list... However, I won't complain, I have a good job and can save up money for it, lots of others in this world aren't as lucky as I am.
This reminds me: and please take at least a short moment to think about this... if everyone who have enough money to keep a good life with all they need to survive and some extra (or a lot extra), give away just a tiny little bit to charity (it doesn't have to be much, because when many give little it becomes much), then it will make a huge difference to those who aren't as lucky - And of course, everyone should not give money to the exact same organisation, which is why it is wonderful that some people feel for supporting one thing while others feel for supporting something else (and there are plenty to support: the poor, nature, animals, people with illnesses etc.). Please, just think about it, thank you 

Magical love,
Maria

Dear Diary,

Doing the laundry is part of life, just like so many other things we find boring or uninspiring, but still they have to be done - and however much this may sound like the start of an inspiring quote, then it really just is to say that thankfully I am done doing the laundry for this week, until next Friday . I am so tired right now I can hardly keep my eyes open, but I don't want to go to bed already, it is only 7:30 pm and the night is still young... though I am not as young as I was when I was 18...
I am still enjoying being creative singing and writing. Creativity gives you such freedom that can't be expressed in words. It is good therapy too
It has been some time since I last uploaded a video to YouTube, but hopefully I soon will have some time for it, I am practising on a few songs I want to do covers on. Music is such a beautiful language, it speaks to your very soul. Sometimes I can just close my eyes and dream myself away into it, like I become one with it. I even cry sometimes, when listening to music so beautiful I hardly can take it - it is wonderful.
Ah and I have discovered the magnificent books that have been, are being and will be (depending on how you look at it) published by Harlequin, such romantic and hot books  they are easy to read and perfect for romantic dreamers like myself...
Now I shall leave you, dear diary, to play Gardens of Time on Facebook. I hope it won't take me another several months until I come back here to write. I did plan on writing more often, but sometimes the things we plan aren't the things we do.

Magical love,
Maria

Dear Diary,

Now comes the time where the days get longer, the sun will shine more and more and spring is just around the corner.
Isn't it wonderful with seasons that change? They teach us that even when it's winter, with freezing cold winds that howl and warn us about going out in the world where bad things may happen... even in this chaos of what seems like endless time of darkness, then you know that it won't last forever. Spring will come, spring will warm the earth and bring back life to our magnificent nature. And eventually summer will come too, with its joyous days and nights of warmth and light.
They teach us that when our life feels like winter, then it won't last forever. Eventually spring will come, eventually good times will come and our life will again be full of love and light. So when you struggle through life, sit down, close your eyes, breathe in inner peace and know that someday it will get better... Someday, which may be very soon in fact  

Magical love,
Maria

Dear Diary,

Oooooh my, it still feels so strange to write 2011 and not 2010 haha, I wonder when I will get used to it. Well some times I feel like I am used to it and other times it feels like now,where I want to write 2010. Hmmm numbers are interesting, yes?
Yesterday one of my very good friends visited me, it had been some weeks since I last had seen her and normally we meet once a week. It was so much fun. My God, we laugh so much when we're together that I always am completely exhausted afterwards, but in the good way
Today I am sooooooo tired, but at least not so much that I can't function.
This weekend I am going to my Goddaughter's birthday, I have of course bought a great present and hope she will like it - of course she will

Ah yes, About a month ago or so I was in a movie campaign, I played the teacher. It was somuch fun. Now the movie is available here
http://www.demokratifordi.dk/bidrag/234.html
It is in Danish, but the message is to get students to treat their teachers better. First we see a class where this teacher completely humiliates one of the students and calls on another teacher for help to make the student even more humiliated.
The text on the screen means: Grotesque right?
The next part is where the teacher is humiliated by the whole class, they threaten her and calls her names.
The text that appears means: Can you see any difference? No! Treat your teachers well.
I like the film, the mesage and how it has been edited with photos and sound.

Oh, I also have two new videos on my Youtube channel

They are:

AND
On My Own cover

I hope you like it

Magical love,
Maria

Dear Diary,

It's a new year. Yes, I know, I am late, since it has been a new year for a month now
Time flies, sometimes a bit too fast...
A little while ago I got a phonecall while I ate dinner. It was a young woman who told me she and a few others were to make a movie campaign, to a movie campaign contest, and she wanted me to play one of the leading parts - a teacher. Filming had to take place a few days after the phone call, in the following weekend, but luckily I had not made any plans, so I of course accepted.
There's something magical about standing in front of a camera. You know, I've always thought it would be more difficult to be in character in front of a professional camera, since it is big and all (and with all that light also), but truth is that I didn't find it the slightest harder in front of a professional camera than in front of the digital camera my friend Karin and I usually use when filming small crazy videos for youtube.
Oh, I absolutely loved doing some real acting again, it is so much fun. I can't explain it, but the feeling you get when having the chance to "be" someone else for a while, to be this character - it is wondrous, absolutely wonderful!
Oh yes, yesterday I addet some more boks to my librarything profile and then, in the middle of adding a book about Nordic Hero Legends, the site went down  Well, I have to see if I have "time" to add the details of the book tonight.
By the way, I highly recommend
www.librarything.com , it is such a great site, especially if you have many books.
Feel free to have a look at my profile there (most of my books are, surprisingly enough, in Danish)
http://www.librarything.com/profile/mariaretz
So far I have 399 books added and there are more to come - many more
I love books

Magical love,
Maria
