Strange Place

This is my second blog, using the same first word "Strange" :D Yeah I cannot say how many strange events come into my life. Besides, I'm not creative enough to make a nice title. Hopefully you will enjoy it!

So I want to share my random experience. Random? Well maybe not... I cannot say this is uncommon, because I have a huge list!

Forest Is Calling...

Light summer breeze was dancing in her curly hair while she was fully enjoying her morning walk. After a while she found herself in the middle of the forest, she loved so much. She was watching the sunbeams fighting against the trees, trying to win, trying to flood the whole forest with the unique gold colour. The air was so fresh that it made her feel a bit energetic. No more troubles, no more worries, it was…

The cool positive energy

Energy flows. It moves from one region to another. It bumps into constraints as it flows, and causes these constraints to change: perhaps to heat up, or perhaps to move. The specific effect on the constraint depends on how the energy flow interacts with it. The key point here is that these interactions are repeatable - they happen in the same way every time. This means that people can study the characteristics of these energy streams in a scientific manner. Using the knowledge gained from…
