The path of a modern shaman

A Christmas nightmare

What was the last thing you did for play or fun?

I struggle with organising my time, in all honesty.

Me, trying to enjoy festive period

I am a Christian and my whole being screams against the fact that the town where I live puts a circus right on the main square around one of the most ancient Christian Church.

So, this thing 👆 was on my mind but I also managed to have some nice and pleasant activities.

For instance I became amazed by street art (graffiti) on my walk to a local grocery shop

Amazing agree?

And also this

It’s like being in an art gallery!

I also rediscovered amazing music by wonderful Liam Walker

It’s amazing!
I have his CD

Then I discovered a wonderful Turkish restaurant and heading to it for a meal with my mum next week

And I cooked a delicious vegetarian meal (I don’t eat meat any longer)

And I discovered an amazing charity shop and bought stylish shoes from there, a jacket and a couple of tops. One for me and one for my son.

And you? What fun activity did you enjoy during this month of December?

I revisited the Oldehove place and the circus looked kind of cool during the day. And Christmas happened after all for some, but because I am a Russian Orthodox I am waiting now for a Christmas in Russia and my wish to God is that the war stops before that and I can fly with my son and my mum to Moscow for festive activities.

About Me

I am a doctor of philosophy, a university lecturer, and a lover of cats, fine wine, dancing, theatre, and human eccentricity. Born in the Soviet Union (Moscow), I grew up in both Russia and Donbas. I am fluent in four languages, and have spent all my adult life studying (except from 18 to 19) working and living throughout Western Europe. Despite a surname-Netchitailova- that translates from Russian into English as “unreadable”, my great passions in life are reading and writing. My personal struggles have made me appreciate the manifestations of weirdness that exist everywhere. My novel ‘Elena: A Love Story for Humankind’ telling a story of a Russian pianist, diagnosed with schizophrenia, looking for her twin sister in England, can be found on Amazon (see the link)
