Please do allow me to Introduce you to One Of the Loveliest Souls I have had the great pleasure of meeting through the Magic of blogging: Trini Lind of the Beautiful Poetry and Photography blog Love Notes From My Heart https://pathsofthespirit.wordpress.com
Trini says it best, so, in her own words (borrowed from her About page)
Dearest lovely people,
I am delighted to have you visiting me here!
I am a joyful soul who believes in healing the world through Love, a Love that starts first with ourselves, then expands to eventually include every living being on planet earth and beyond. I believe that a way to Love yourself is to always seek joy, comfort, and stillness.
I live my dreams every day and I try to create a little magic in the world by leaving a trail of Light wherever I happen to walk.
Now if that isn’t enough to make you dash right over to her blog for a leisurely meander, I’m not entirely sure what will! Still, if you need a bit more convincing, consider this: Do you enjoy beautiful photography, fairy tales, short stories, breathtaking poetry, all graced by a gentle spirituality that sings upon the wing; music you’ve probably never heard before and insights into the wonders of life? Yes, I do as well, which is why I am drawn again and again to Trini’s blog. But don’t take my word for it, read on and discover for yourself more about her 🙂
About Your Blog:
Tell us about your Blog.
I started my blog a little over a year ago, because I wanted to inspire people with my writing. I have been writing since I was 6 and for me writing is a way of reaching out to people, sharing the love, joy and peace in my heart. My blog is mainly a poetry blog, but I sometimes also publish photos and articles. Most of it has a spiritual theme, but you will also find love poems, fun photos and some articles about culture and social work.
What Inspires the Magic within you?
I am inspired by so many things! Nature, people, art, spirituality and music. I think if I had to choose one if those things It would have to be nature. I just love nature. I find God in nature, in small things like a beautiful butterfly, a little flower in the wayside, white sails on the horizon, a starry sky, a bird sailing the wind.
What Message, if any, do you hope to Share through your blog/posts?
I think my ongoing message which seeps through everything I do is Love. When I was little I said that I wanted to love all those who did not have anyone to love them. As an adult I know that that is not possible so I have rephrased my dream, saying now that I want to help people to love themselves, to find love within. I think that is my message.
Do you have any upcoming events or projects, books, promotions, giveaways?
No, not really. I keep writing every day. Creating, looking for beauty and evidence of God’s Love to share. But you never know what will happen. I follow my heart, and the heart can be impulsive.
Describe yourself in Five Words
Oh, that is difficult. Let’s see…spiritual, artistic, creative, highly sensitive, joyful. Yes, that sounds like me.
Tell us about something from your childhood that sparked the magic of creativity inside you.
I was always a creative child. I think teaching myself to read and write when I was 4 must have been the most magical thing in my childhood. From then onwards I just wrote and wrote all the time.
When you are not writing/taking pictures, what is your favourite pastime?
Reading, listening to music, being in nature or around animals like horses, or anything creative like drawing, painting or just making things.
If you could invite Five People (from the past or present) to a dinner party, who would you invite and why?
This one is not easy…..let me think…..it had to be someone I admire……like Meryl Streep, yes I looooove her! She is so amazing! Funny, kind, warm, wise, artistic and deep. And I love her speeches! Then my next choice would be…..J.K Rowling, I think. I love her in interviews and her life story is so amazing, and I of course love the Harry Potter books! Seems like I am keeping to famous people here! Well anyway…..it is just the truth! The third one would be Emma Watson because I love her speech about gender equality in the United Nations meeting. That was amazing! I want to discuss that speech with her. The fourth would be the Princess of my native Norway. She is very spiritual, has written books about guardian angels and organizes classes for spiritual growth. The fifth would be a musician, Loreena McKennitt I think. I love her music so much, and she has such a poetic and artistic soul. I would just love to listen to her talking about folklore and old myths and legends. So there you have it! It looks to be a real hen party with five strong and independent women, an author, two actresses, a celtic musician and a princess, perfect! I bet we’ll have an amazing time with lots of wine and wonderful food!
What makes Life Worth Living?
Oh, so many things! Love of course! That is most important! The giving of love and the receiving of it! If I ever feel sad, like the world is too harsh and cruel, I think of how much love I can give, and what a difference that can make, that always picks me right back up. I feel my number one responsibility is to my soul, letting it grow and shine and reach its full potential.
Thank You Ever so Much Trini for Sharing yourself with us. (By the way, I agree, Loreena McKennitt is Amazing!) And so are you 🙂
