I Love My Computer and Writing Fairy-Tales

I love my computer.  When I turned it on this bright, sunny morning, it greeted me with its nice fanfare.  Then the monitor woke up and showed me my beautiful titmouse, sitting on a branch so comfortably.  I love birds, too.

If you EVER wrote books with a typewriter, you will understand why I love computers so much.

If you NEVER wrote a book with a typewriter, imagine this: You type your page, double spaced.  Then you read what you have written.  You like it, but there is room for improvement.  Then you write the improved words or the new idea with a pen into the space between the typed lines.  If writing is your art, you want to express the world of your inner perception with as much clarity as possible.

And maybe inspiration hits you – like it does me – in intervals.  Then a new idea blossoms in your mind, and you scribble it on the border of your manuscript, maybe with an arrow pointing to where it belongs.  After a while, you can hardly make out what all the scribbled additions mean, and you type the page again.  And again.  I wonder how Shakespeare managed.

I’m not Shakespeare. I’m Brigitte Novalis. I don’t write plays. Instead,  I write stories and fairy-tales and love them!

Of course, there is more to computers.  They connect us with the internet.  I can hardly imagine how my life was before the internet.  Can you?  Some people say there was no life before the internet.  I wouldn’t go quite so far, but it surely has gotten easier.

I love this vast space we share with all the people on earth who have computers and access to the internet.  This electro-magnetic field that surrounds earth, that is filled with millions and billions of connections to people, businesses, libraries, websites, movie theaters, cities, countries, TV stations.  It seems endless.  If you have a question – any question! – you simply google for an answer.

Of course, there is an even larger field that surrounds us on planet Earth. The energy field of all our thoughts, emotions, dreams, wishes, fears, and hopes.  If you have a question beyond the ordinary, you can tap into the data base of what Carl Jung called the collective unconscious.  Or you can raise your mind and heart to the higher realms which are also part of your life.  Then, as you listen carefully, you will find the answers in your mind and heart.

There is also more to fairy-tales. Fairy-tales are for our soul what studying is for our mind.

There must be a good reason why one of the greatest minds of our time said:

I invite you to dive into the magical world of my fairy-tales with me where dragons and wizards roam, where animals can talk, where friendship has to prove itself and everything turns out as it should be.

Read my fairy-tales to your children! Give them wings to fly! You find them right here on my website under ‘fairytales’.

This sunny morning, I write my thoughts down with my computer and share them with you.  I love my computer and I love my fairy-tales. I love my world – which includes you.

Love Dogs

In my family, we love our dogs and they love us.

Of course, they are easy to love, as friendly, intelligent and beautiful as they are.  They must have a high opinion of us as well because they love us back.  You can see it, you can feel it.

Other families also love their dogs.  I meet them in the parks nearby.

What a variety of dogs: Miniature Pinshers, small like cats, Great Danes, tall like ponies and so gentle, German Shepherds, intelligent and loyal,  Golden Retrievers, friendly and welcoming.

Although I still think that our dogs are the best and most beautiful – which undoubtedly they are – I cannot help appreciating and loving them all: these Collies and Setters, Boxers and Huskies, Pugs and Poodles walking, running, sniffing, playing – what wonderful dogs they are!  How special their people who walk them in the park!

This is the miracle of love – once you open your heart for love, you cannot stop loving.

Do you love dogs, too?

 

New Year’s Resolutions

The new year is here, awaiting you with all the possibilities and probabilities which can happen in eleven months, two weeks and some days.

What do you want to achieve this year?  What do you want to change this year?  What do you want to experience this year?

Some of you have great plans.  Some of you have no plans.  Some of those who have great plans feel optimistic, others have a sense of foreboding when thinking of future events and circumstances.  Interestingly enough, even those who have no plan can feel a sense of foreboding.

Where does this feeling of foreboding come from?  I think it comes from the sameness we push forward year after year – the same attitudes, the same behaviors, the same circumstances.  As we stay in this sameness, no positive change can happen.  Are you tired of this?  You can change it in a moment.

What you and others really, really want is quite simple – feeling good about yourself.

Simply feeling good about yourself. You can make this happen.  In your inner talk, praise yourself, cheer yourself up, comfort yourself.  Also, make others feel good about themselves by praising them, cheering them up, comforting them.

It’s quite simple.  You are powerful.  Love is the key.

What do you think?
