I was smaller than everybody else my age. When I was a small baby I was blond, but then somehow my hair became dark brown. Being 6 I remember people saying "it's such a shame this beautiful blond hair is gone". I still have dark brown hair now. I didn't have a tv at home (and [...]
I am very interested in books for kids lately, for my own personal reasons and also because I am making something for kids myself now. So I am looking for some inspiration here. Can you maybe recommend some books you liked as a kid, or maybe books your kids read and like? Looking mostly for [...]
This post is not connected to anything I've written before. I am just wondering to what extent nudity is connected to sex. I mean, the naked body exists under your clothes all the time. It's there when you are at work, or when you are walking down the street. And we know everybody has a naked [...]
My short but pleasant stay in Berlin is over (2,5 days), and I am continuing my vacation across the Atlantic ocean. I was staying in Neukölln, and I loved it. Especially food.

This morning I took the subway to a place I've never been before - just some station rather far away from the center of Moscow. Then I waited for 15 minutes in the middle of the hall, and then some young person showed up with a plastic bag, gave it to me, took the money (300 rubles exactly, which is about 4 euros and change), said [...]
I don't do new year resolutions, so there are "random facts about 2017" instead.
I seriously think I should paint more, this is so much fun. Don't take me wrong, I love digital art, but sometimes it's just so cool to use actual paints or markers... however, there is still no snow here in Moscow, I am not a big fan but kind of miss it. Besides it's frizzing [...]
