Don't Fence Me In! - TAROT Blog Hop, Summer Solstice 2018







Hello Lovely Ones,

I am happy to be here again! Any time I am able to join a Blog Hop occasion, I feel such warmth in my chest - it is good to belong to you, thank you! 

I was very pleased when I saw the topic of the Summer Solstice 2018 Blog Hop, a musical blog and connecting it somehow to Tarot - thank you so much for this, Joy (our Joyous Wrangler if you are new to this Tarot Blog Hop Wonderland, so we have a Wrangler for every occasion :).

There is actually a song I have been addicted to for a long time by now and I must say first I found it a bit absurd to connect it to Tarot, then it just came as it did and I love the outcome - and I felt totally unfenced while preparing this little video. :)

Even more than that, I have just attended a Summer Solstice fire-walk ceremony here in Hungary, and as I was going there, Spirit was talking in my head about the everlasting Power of Love - maybe this is why I find this song happy, despite the not too happy story. I hope you will like it, too. 

Blessed Be, all of us, and I wish all of us a very happy, healthy and joyous summer for 2018!

And here is my unfenced song to you: 




When you are done with that, I must confess that I am addicted to everything 'Russian'. It probably comes from a previous life but when I hear the Russian National Anthem, for me it feels like arriving home. In the Beltane Blog, I have shown you the cards I painted for the Russian Tarot 1917 international co-operation. Now I would like to show you all the cards of this wonderful - though sad but very intense - deck if you are interested, with me singing the National Anthem of Russia - the idea came with the musical blog. :)




Thank you so-so much for watching and thank you also if you leave a comment for me! :)

What Can I Give the World? - TAROT Blog Hop, Beltane 2018

PREVIOUS BLOG          |          MASTER LIST          |          NEXT BLOG


I loved the topic of this Blog Hop occasion given to us by our Wrangler for this magical Beltane Tarot blog hopping, Morgan Drake Eckstein. I must tell you this is what I have also been thinking about  for the last couple of months - what could I do to be more efficient on my Path, what can I give the World (people) so that I really feel like fulfilling my mission?

I am dedicated to Tarot and helping people, this is not a new thing to me, and from time to time, I am starving to find a new deck I fall in love with, and when it happens, I am so happy that again, I can sink in something new, exploring more and more new aspects certain cards can give, and the feeling that it is expanding my Tarot-knowledge makes me feel worthier and even more professional.

I have some decks on my wish-list right now, as well, among others the Prisma Visions Tarot, the Before Tarot that will come out in fall 2018, the Numinous Tarot, the Riderless Tarot - they are all wonderful ones and I hope to be able to get them in time. Tarot and the World has given me so much, still does (continuously), and I truly hope that I will be able to do my best for the people and the World for a long time.

I have been thinking about pulling cards for this question our Beltane Blog Hop is about right now - then I thought of something else.

Not so long ago I also contributed to Tarot-painting in a mind-blowing project, the TAROT 1917 international co-operation by Natalia Plakhina and Vladimir Sitnikov. It was meant to pay respect to the 1917 Russian Revolution and its hundredth anniversary in October 1917.

All it took long months and such hard work from part of all the creators that have contributed to it, but I cannot tell you how happy we were with Kati when we had our special Deluxe copies in our  hands! Everyone that created one or more cards has received their copy in a very special box with a card made and chosen by us decorating the box.

So, it is already 'finished', but for me, it has been such a great accomplishment and it is an honor I could contribute to this with my own simple methods - I am not an artist, I just like painting on my own and I adore Tarot, so it was a good combination.

This deck is available for public already - although my contribution to it is humble, this whole co-operation was grandiose and Tarot is a tool that will never cease teaching us so much about ourselves and about the World. Maybe teaching is something similar to healing, and it is true that we heal by healing others, so maybe it is also true that we learn by teaching others. I can teach people about Tarot - and I do so -, and in the meanwhile, I am constantly learning new things.

And of course, I am going to show you 'my' cards - the ones that I have drawn and painted. We were allowed to freely express ourselves the way we wanted to. We were also asked to write a short description about the cards, I will show you them, as well (please scroll down for that). I hope you will like this little video, thank you for watching! :)





PREVIOUS BLOG          |          MASTER LIST          |          NEXT BLOG



Here you can find the brief descriptions I have given to each card:

IX. The Hermit: Tsar Nicholas II

Card Description: The Spirit of Tsar Nicholas II is returned to the Winter Palace – now calm and no longer in fear and pain, he is lamenting on the development of his native land, on how the revolution and the war itself changed people into stronger men and women after long-long journeys of pain, sorrow, poverty, losses – but also love and hope during probably the toughest and most difficult years of Russia. Nicholas is alone – with his beloved ones in his heart. His Tsar costume fits the elegance of the Winter Palace in the winter night lights. Despite the sadness and the tragedy of the Romanov family and Russian people from that era, the card suggest peace, love and hope.

Keywords: turning inwards, sorrow, isolation, faith, love, hope, inner strength, inner journey, development, seeking God


Four of Flags

Card Description: A young woman is just coming in from farm-work. Looking a bit melancholic, wondering if life will ever offer her better options – like the family whose samovar and elegant cups are visible on the table. She is safe and sound, knowing life can be very tough, but it depends on us if we accept the good things it offers besides all our daily struggles. What life offers her right now is not bad, but could be better, indeed. Sometimes we just need to recognize the importance of the first steps towards our dreams. Gloominess and the first steps are also parts of the bigger puzzle.

Keywords: gloominess, acceptance, the necessity of finding joy in everyday tasks, even in monotony; accept what life offers you right now; insecurity and sadness vs. optimism and joy


Five of Stars

Card Description: Two young children, a brother and a sister are sitting in the snow on a cold and dark winter evening, hugging and protecting each other. They are homeless orphans – having lost their parents and relatives in the war. In the background, warm light leaks out through the windows of the small church – will there be someone to help them? They must go through this cruel period – is it destiny or are they victims of a cruel power? Seemingly there is no help or a way out of it – but no one is predestined for misery and losses. Proper help must come in time.

Keywords: a hopeless situation, pain, sorrow, loss, poverty, misery; hope dies the last; everyone needs someone, life cannot exist without love; faith and the importance of prayer


Six of Stars

Card Description: Two small children are receiving toy-gifts and food aid – support from abroad. As a succession of the previous card, we can see that indeed, help arrives in time. God never gives up on us. There is sadness but also hope in the eyes of these children – they still believe in the Good, and they carry the Good in themselves. A caring hand is reaching out to them.

Keywords: giving without asking anything in return; caring, support, aid, charity; 'So when you give to the needy, do not announce it with trumpets, … do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing, so that your giving may be in secret. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you.' /Matthew 6/


Ten of Stars

Card Description: Finally progress and joy is seen on the faces of people – in this picture, we can see the result of hard work, faith, perseverance and stamina: the happy 'owner' of a well-off farm, a proud farmer and his young daughter are getting prepared for a harvest ceremony. The cat symbolizes more relaxing times while staying vigilant; the three little ducklings symbolize the Holy Trinity, as well as new life and hope being born even in colder times; the chrysanthemums symbolize power and rejuvenating energy – the legend says whoever drinks chrysanthemum wine will have a strong, healthy and abundant life.

Keywords: abundance, success, social life, happiness; the success of collective co-operation and of joyful creation; the fruits of your effort are ripening; you can lean back a bit and enjoy harvest time

TAROT Blog Hop - Samhain/MidFall 2017, Le Roi est Mort, Vive le Roi!



Hello Everyone, 

I am happy we have Blog Hoppers' Time again! I am a bit tired, probably like many of you, and indeed, this year has been very intense so far - and it is not over yet. Last year, the Halloween Blog Hop was about Messages from our Ancestors, this year, as a continuation of that occasion, we were offered a topic by our gorgeous Wrangler and Cat Herder Extraordinaire, Jay Cassels about where we have arrived since last year - our own personal progress, development and understanding, by a single or a three-card spread. 

The topic is Le Roi Est Mort, Vive le Roi! (The King Is Dead, Long Live the  King!), Death, Birth & Rebirth, the cycles of life. I am going to use my tiny bit scary, but wonderful Ludy Lescot Tarot

But before I start, I would like to share with you something that has come in my mind when I was wondering about the topic of this Blog Hop. Long ago, when I was a university student, we had American literature seminars for quite long, and once we were supposed to read a short story by Joyce Carol Oates - I am not sure if it was optional or I was lazy to read it, I cannot recall having read it, but I can very clearly recall its title on the Reading List: Where Are You Going, Where Have You Been? 

Probably this will be the most perfect thing to read at this Samhain - in the company of my pumpkin lantern, and something in me tells me this story will give me answers to some of my questions I have been dealing with for long, and all in all, what I personally feel about this Samhain is that for me, it is not just this year that has been so much of great importance, not just what has been transforming in and around me since last Samhain, but probably for the last two decades even. We will see. But now let us see what the Ludy Lescot Tarot tells me.


For the Present, in the middle, I have got the Seven of Wands - self-defense when actually there is no danger, yet we feel it is better to pull back a bit and protect our own self, our own energy-field, mind and soul, and yes, this is how I actually feel. I have pulled my energies back to myself even from friends for a while, from Facebook, from all sorts of social activities - except for the Tarot People and those who are very close to me. Magic is happening in the meanwhile, I can very clearly sense that, though sometimes I get a bit scared of what if I am going insane. I know I am okay, just yes, indeed, the Veil is so-so thin, and I have problems with grounding myself. I am better at handling my social ties - even if it means pulling back. But it is a must when we split apart if we cannot protect our energy-field. 

The previous card, on the left, from where I started and what has led here, it is the Queen of Cups - also true. For me, this card means healing (ourselves, first of all, but it is also true that we heal by healing others). In the Waite Tarot, the Queen of Cups has crystals at her feet, too - often, I was working with crystals during the past year, still do. What has changed in me regarding the Queen of Cups - I think I am finally really more mature as compared to how I was. I have had so many motherly roles, too, and I feel more mature as a mom, as well. I know the Queen of Cups is just part of our whole feminine self, and I am not sure if I could make a list of importance of more or less important aspects or roles - it must be balanced. I think we constantly have to work on all of those aspects, but yes, for this year, the Queen of Cups-aspect was the most important and influential one. 

And where I am going, on the right - this is the Six of Swords, which in the Ludy Lescot Tarot differs a lot from the Waite-depiction. I prefer this one, to be honest. I am ready to face new difficulties, and I do not want to push my head under the sand when problems arise - we must solve them and life without problems would definitely be boring. Maybe. :) What catches my eyes in this card is the rope-lemniscate at the feet of the guy in the card: infinity, endlessness, and for me, it is a very positive thing, even if it also refers to the endless up and down cycles, as well. But we are endlessly guided, supported and protected from High Above, too. If this guy is waiting for the ship to float in, or he is waving goodbye, or he is asking them to come and pick him up - I cannot decide and do not want to. Ships are coming and going, and we can be passengers or captains. It does not always depend on us, I know, but in an optimal case, we are the captains of our own life-ships. This is what I believe in. What Ludy herself writes about this card in the LWB is this: 'The voyage begins in the mind and ends in the body. The first step already takes you far.' I truly believe in it. 

Okay, I am off to carve my pumpkin. Thank you so much for reading me, see you next time!

TAROT Blog Hop: Mabon 2017 - Sacred Cooking & Mabon Beauty Products


:) Hello Lovely Everyone!

I am so happy to be among you - Tarot Nerds like me, something that always makes me feel good in this upside down world. Also when I can love - best things ever - when we can love, and when we are surrounded by wonderful Tarot cards and we can learn so much from them! 

Mabon, I think, is my favorite time of the year, though I also adore spring and summer, too. Winter - not that much. For me, Midsummer and Mabon always channel special vibes - so I was very happy to be the Wrangler of this Tarot Blog Hop. And I would like to thank Jay Cassels for helping me when I was stuck! :)

The topic I chose was Sacred Cooking and Tarot, or Mabon Beauty Products and Tarot: simply because day by day, I explore the importance of tastes, colors, numbers of things we eat, the importance of spices - as well as the color of spices -, and just something personal, I have a severe autoimmune disease with some of my closest family members, and we can barely eat anything 'ready'-made.

So for me, cooking is a central daily issue - and it is not always easy to find out what to prepare, but whatever I create, I always-always pay attention on preparing dishes in a calm mood, on consecrating and cleaning the ingredients before putting them on the stove, especially when I prepare something that contains meat. 

This is not my task to blame food and beauty industry, but we are kind of 'poisoned' with all the chemicals, preservatives and artificial stuff that are added to foods and beauty products, as well - as for beauty products, I am not that thorough when choosing them, to be honest. Maybe one day...  

So why Mabon for this topic - because we celebrate harvest time and it is connected to feasts and to lovely meals, of course. And because it is great to share recipes - and I wonder what Tarot figures would cook at your place. :) And why would they prepare such dishes. So I hope you love the topic - and I am curiously waiting for your lovely articles! Thank you for joining me, as well! 

Well, I myself like cooking a lot - and one day I would like to have a modern rustic kitchen in a timber house. I would be so happy if I could make it real in this life of mine. Till then, I am cooking on the fourth floor under the roof, which I also like. 

When I was thinking about what to write in this Blog Hop-post, the Lovers turned up in my mind from my James Bond 007 deck (Tarot of the Witches). I was wondering why and what the heck they could cook, then I thought okay, maybe not at this moment, but they would surely enjoy something yummy together. Then I thought of something that raises lust - and then I thought okay, maybe they want a baby so they should cook something that helps fertility. It was just later on that I started to think about the flower - because of another flower.

My first idea was that they should prepare a dessert - then indeed, I prepared it, but in my case, that dessert was something I prepared to my son and myself, for Mabon, and first I will share this recipe with you, then I will tell you something else, as well. 

This recipe is perfect for a light supper, healthy and easy for the stomach - and while preparing, you can just take your time to tune on what Angels have to tell you - at least I like to listen to them while working in the kitchen. 

This is my own recipe - and when cooking something for my son, I consider myself to be a caring Empress. And this is the beautiful Empress-depiction of the Anna K Tarot. Numbers in this recipe are meaningful. Apples are sacred as we know - and not just healthy, but they really support productivity; grapes carry and strengthen the vibes of abundance; cinnamon helps the detoxification of the body; milk is the symbol - and energy - of flowing, endless, nurturing love; cane sweetens it - and life must also be sweetened. 

What you need for this recipe is:
- 3 healthy and juicy apples (three because it is the sacred number of Creation)
- 3 dl - a bigger mug - of flour (I use rice and corn flour combined 50-50%)
- vanilla custard - you can find homemade recipes on the Internet, as for me, I prefer vanilla custard powder free of any artificial stuff and I just follow the instructions given on the sack
- grapes for decoration and also to serve the cake with grapes when ready (it is even yummier with grapes)
- cooking oil 

For the pastry:
- 3 eggs
- 3 dl milk
- 3 tablespoons of cane 
- a pinch of salt for better grounding
- cinnamon

And here you can find the way to prepare it:




Now back to our Lovers-couple in the James Bond 007 deck, it happened that I participated in a Tarot-painting challenge - the Russian Tarot 1917, which is about to be published and will be available from November 2017 on - limited edition, so order your copy soon! :) Kati or me can give you the link - we both participated in this project. 

I am a total - but enthusiastic - amateur, and delving in Tarot-painting was like a short Inner Camino for me. The last card I chose, designed and painted with was the 10 of Coins - in this deck will be called 10 of Stars. My subconscious was working... All I knew was that I wanted to depict something sweet and wealthy - so this is how I choose putting a father and a daughter in this card, going on a harvest feast, taking some pears and a pumpkin there. Again, the three little ducklings represent the Holy Number of Creation, the cat symbolizes rest but alertness, birches are so much Russian that they had to be there, and for some reasons, I painted chrysanthemums in the picture, as well - okay, not that visible that they are chrysanthemums, but they are. 

Then not much later did I find an article on the Internet about chrysanthemums - did you know that in Ancient China, they already prepared and drank chrysanthemum wine? According to the legend, in Ancient China, girls and boys started off to find a legendary flower that would make them immortal. Instead or maybe it was what they were looking for, they found chrysanthemum. Since then, people make wine of chrysanthemum in China - also tea of the flower-petals. They drink it to gain health, protection and rejuvenation. They say chrysanthemums have cleansing and healing effects. So then I knew I would ask the Lovers-couple to prepare homemade chrysanthemum wine - because it will keep them young and healthy. In Japan, they say chrysanthemum keeps the Devil away, and the Japanese put chrysanthemum-petals in salads. I myself vote for the wine and the tea. Maybe this could also be a great beauty product, chrysanthemum wine, all in all. :) 

Thank you for taking your time to read me, and I wish all of you a wonderful and magical Mabon Time!

TAROT Blog Hop - Beltane 2017



Beltane is here! :) I think by now, everyone has experienced the hectic nature of 2017, the Year of the Wheel with Number 10 in the Major Arcana – up and down for most people, yes. Probably for everyone. But I truly feel Miracles in the air – or it is better to say this way, they are always there, and it depends on us how much we notice of them. For me, the message of Beltane is to truly and innocently believe in Miracles.

For this Beltane TAROT Blog Hop occasion, our Wrangler, Arwen has chosen this topic: 'Do you combine Tarot with any other divination system? Why or why not?'

Simple but great question, and I am sure we will get very colorful answers. As for me, I use Tarot cards the most frequently. As I am also a collector, I use several decks – I do not use all the decks of my collection, but I learn from all of them. Any time I get a new deck, I explore its personal style, depth and vibes, but from time to time, I go back to my favorite ones.

I have a couple of favorite ones – just to mention a few, now the good old Rider-Waite deck, the Mystical Cats Tarot, the Halloween Tarot, the Rabbit Tarot, the Herbal Tarot and now the Green Witch Tarot, but my collection consists of around 100 decks right now.

But let me show you my other beloved companion – my pendulum. This is my very first pendulum – I found it in an Angelic way. It usually happens that crystals call out for me – showing themselves to me, telling me where to find them, and then I just go at the 'given' place, and they are there. This agate pendulum sent me such a message years back, as well. And indeed, it was there in the crystal store – the only one they had there those times.

I often use my pendulum on its own and combined with Tarot readings to reassure what I get from readings – and it has never deceived me, but I know we must be careful when using it. Also because we can manipulate it, also because we must not invade in the private sphere of others with our questions. And my latest experience is a bit scary even! There is really no time.

Years ago, a friend of mine asked something from my pendulum – about another friend. He felt deceived by this other friend, and we asked the pendulum if the seemingly translucent lie was really a lie or it was the truth. The pendulum said that person was lying – but some weeks later, the pendulum turned out to have been mistaken… I did not understand why.

Then years later, the very same question turned up about the same person – this time, this person was asked to submit a lie detector test, because of lies and lies. Again a similar story – probably with 'true' lies this time. I never got to know the ultimate truth, but on the one hand, I know we get to know everything we are allowed to know – but not when we want to get to know something, but when it is the right time to get to know the truth. And the psychology of getting over a 'deception' or a supposed deception is like this: for a healthy mind and soul, by the time something turns out, it is usually all the same. Even lies do not count. Interesting experience. But all in all, my pendulum reassures me in 95 cases out of 100. Thank you for reading! :)

Érmék 2 - Vinni a Sorsunkat...

Kedves ismerősömmel, Évával beszélgettem a minap röviden. Mindig elfoglalt ő is, és én is a magam szétszórt módján viszem a mindennapjaimat - tényleg, el ne felejtsem, hogy holnap az Államkincstárba kell mennem -, és abban a pár mondatban, amit beszélgettünk, azt mondta Éva, nincs jól, de viszi a Sorsát, és aki egy kicsit is normális, az ezekben az időkben nincs jól. Hálás voltam Évának ezekért a szavakért - nem ez volt az első alkalom, hogy két mondatával olyan sokat adott nekem. Hogy én hogy vagyok - nem tudom. Fent és lent. És ha szétnézek, a normális emberek tényleg fent és lent vannak, nagyjából azonos időmennyiségben fent és lent, csak a 8-asnak a középponttól egyre távolabb eső részein - nagyobbak a kilengések. Közben a legtöbb ember arra vágyik, hogy a 8-asnak a közepén legyen, kilengések nélkül - merthát, kinek jó a hepehupa és a fájdalom? És ki akar önszántából fájdalmat? Mégis ott van.

Jó volna, ha lenne egy olyan szivacs, mint amivel az iskolában a táblát töröltük: csak simán letörölnénk vele a fájdalmat és a nehézségeket, és eltűnnének egy mozdulattal. Aztán ha újra összekoszolódott a tábla, letöröljük megint. A lélekből azért nem olyan könnyű kitörölni a fájdalmat, mert annak van mélysége és magassága is, nemcsak egy sík felület, mint a tábla (itt most jöhetne az a rész, hogy Hit kérdése minden, és adjuk Isten kezébe a gondjainkat, amit amúgy így is gondolok, és magam is mindig Máriapócson kötök ki, ha már nagyon bedarált az élet, és olyankor úgy érzem, már tényleg csak az segít, ha Isten kezébe egyszerűen átadok mindent). Mégis, még ha tudjuk is, hogy ezt naponta többször megtehetnénk, nem tesszük... Még ezt is elfelejtjük, és nincs bennünk rutinként az, hogy nahát, van egy Mindenható, akinek minden nap a kezébe tehetnénk a gondjainkat - persze közben fontos, hogy mi se tétlenkedjünk a földi síkunkon, és ami rajtunk múlik, azt tegyük meg. Sokszor meg éppen túl sok mindent akarunk mi megoldani, makacs módon. 

Évának igaza van, a Sorsát mindenkinek vinnie kell - akár Isten kezébe teszi, akár nem. Egy ideje már olyan nehéz Sorsok vannak világszerte. Mindenkinek a maga keresztje a legnehezebb, ez is olyan igaz. És mindenki annyi erőt kap, amennyi a Sorsának az elviseléséhez szükséges. Néha elképedünk, milyen nehézségekből jönnek ki emberek, és ami az egyiknek meg sem kottyan, attól a másik összeomlik - nincs közös recept, viszont a saját gondját tényleg mindenki beleteheti ugyanannak a Mindenhatónak a kezébe.

Mindig mindenki csak boldog akar lenni - pedig olyan nincsen, hogy mindig boldogok legyünk. Az az Élet természetével ellentétes. Ebben a világban meg különösen lehetetlennek tűnik, hogy valaki mindig csak boldog legyen, mindent vidáman, mosolyogva csináljon - bár láttam már ilyet is. Lehet, hogy belül ők is sírnak, nem tudom. Még a Szentek is nagyon sokat szenvedtek, borzasztóan sokat. Mindig volt valami kemény áldozat vagy lemondás, amit hoztak. Olyan nincs, hogy az Élet csak jó... El lehet menekülni ideig-óráig sok nehézség elől, de attól az még nem lesz megoldva. Cipelni is lehet őket sokáig, de akkor csak összeroskadunk alatta a végére. Megoldani és elengedni kellene - és még ha nem is így neveltek minket - sajnos -, az univerzális recept, az egyetlen, amit hétmilliárd ember megtehet, kivétel nélkül mindenki megteheti, az az, hogy Isten kezébe adjuk, és ha kell, akkor addig imádkozunk, amíg tényleg érezni kezdjük, hogy működik. Hogy egy mélységes ima után tényleg könnyebb a lélek - kár, hogy a darálóban elfelejtjük ezt egyszerűen napi rutinként alkalmazni - én is elfelejtem... Pedig a könnyek könnyítenek, ima közben meg főleg.    

Az Érmék Kettes figurája egyensúlyozgat és lavírozgat - próbál a középpontban maradni, de a háttérben mégis morajlik és hullámzik a tenger, és bucskázik a kis hajó. A fektetett nyolcason nem látszanak annyira a kilengések, mint az álló nyolcason - de szerintem egyik ember ilyen, a másik olyan. Az egyik szeszélyes és szenvedélyes, nagy magasságokkal és nagy mélységekkel az álló nyolcason, a másiknak kisebb kilengései vannak a fektetett nyolcason - nem tudom, van-e olyan, hogy valaki átmegy álló nyolcasból fekvőbe, vagy fordítva. Szerintem nincs - ezt jelentheti a vérmérséklet, a temperamentum, a spiritusz. Az egyik ember bevállalós és bolondabb, a másik passzívabb és higgadtabb - a második csoportba tartozók tapasztalnak kevesebbet, de nyugalmasabb az életük, az álló nyolcasban hintázók pedig azok, akik inkább égnek-kiégnek, ők viszont többet tapasztalnak az Életből, éppen a magasságaik és mélységeik miatt. Szerintem egyik sem jobb vagy rosszabb a másiknál, inkább mindkettő csak egy-egy Sorsnak az egyik összetevője. Legyen szó álló vagy fekvő nyolcasról, azért a víz az úr: a mély és félelmetes tenger mindig morajlik a háttérben. Nem lehet neki azt mondani, hogy hagyja abba a morajlást - mint ahogyan a folyónak sem lehet azt mondani, hogy ne folyjon. Árral szemben úszni és hullámok között vergődni persze nagyon kimerítő - mégis milyen sokszor ezt tesszük... Aztán végül mindig arra jutok, hogy az a legjobb, ha lerázzuk a vizet a szárnyainkról, és inkább repülünk, amerre a légáram visz, és leszállunk megpihenni és töltődni mindig, amikor elfáradtunk.
