A nice blog post about life aboard in Russia. Pictures of people are amazing.
One of my largest regrets of my time spent abroad in Russia and my travels to other post-Soviet countries, was that I did not take more photographs of the people. I don’t know if it’s that I don’t want to intrude on anyone’s privacy, or if I feel people might be intimidated by my 200mm lens, but….. either way, I hope I will gain more courage to photograph people as I travel in the coming years. For the time being, here are some photos of the people I encountered during my time abroad in Russia. I love observing people and these are some of my favorite candid “portraits” from my travels.
On that note, I’m happy to announce that my husband and I have rescheduled our trip to Russia and the Ukraine and if all goes according to plan (and I do not need another surgery!), I will be flying…

Changing is not always bad. It leads to improvement and better as well. Anita Clew is correctly providing good blog post about change.
I just accepted a new position with my company and am very excited about the opportunity… yet at the same time, I’m feeling really nervous about the change. What are some ways I can overcome my fears?
Dear, “New and Nervous,”
Congratulations on this new chapter in your career! Changing jobs is a part of life, and the fear that goes along with each change is only natural. Our human instinct is to stay within a certain comfort zone, develop habits, and stick with routines that are familiar to us. The idea of rocking the boat with change tends to heighten our anxieties and can create unwanted stress.
The key is to simply reset your frame of mind.
- Don’t look at change as a bad thing. This is a very exciting time for you! You need to embrace the opportunities that come with it. I often remind myself…

Jane Austen’s Persuasion is a piece of art in literature. However, many question left for us to answer. This blog post has good analysis of this novel. Check this out.
In my previous review of Robinson Crusoe, I mentioned that I own a large collection of Collins Classics books, because they’re inexpensive. That isn’t the only link between Robinson Crusoe and Persuasion however. Persuasion was published 1818 – in the Georgian era, as I’m sure any Austen fan knows. Crusoe was also a product of this age. The only significance that this link has is to me. I have a personal project going at the moment, looking into Georgian literature – gothic novels, the romance movement etc. A few more reviews may be appearing from a similar time frame.
The Collins Classics collections have such a useless glossary at their back that I’ve begun to keep a dictionary on hand. I definitely haven’t been able to rely on that glossary to find out what any antiquated word means. You know the saying: if…

Although it wasn’t my plan to post more than one property each week for Under $500k, I couldn’t resist sharing this property this week (it’s been on the market for 12 days and I have a feeling it won’t be available much longer!). Plus, since I didn’t get a chance to post anything the last 2 weeks, I figure we’re making up for lost time. Aaaand, since it’s located in Coral Gables, we’ve got a little Gables theme going this week.
So without further ado, I present to you 315 Viscaya Avenue. Before I tell you about it, let’s check out some more photos, shall we? I think they speak for themselves:
Wouldn’t you agree that this home just exudes…
