Conquer the World

Travel is something that forms an immense part of my life. It's a dream, it's an ambition, it's an achievement. But most importantly, it's a passion. Without it, I wouldn't be the writer and dreamer I am today. It inspires me and it motivates me. It's an itch that is forever abundant in my heart. It makes me restless and persistent. I want to be an explorer of the world around me. I want to see hidden pieces of the world I never imagined I would find. I want to come back one day and feel satisfied. I want to know I've seen it all. I want to see my home with different eyes, and a mind filled with experience and knowledge.  

I'm also glad to say that I know that I'm not alone. Many others aim to conquer the world.

If you, like me, have an itch in your heart. If you, like me, have the chance to follow your dreams. Do. Take a step. Conquer the world. Not everyone is as fortunate to be able to do the same. Realize how lucky you are. Buy a one-way airplane ticket. Learn to ride a bike. Trust me. When you are older, and settled, and your chance has flown past already, you will not be able to turn back. And instead of a head filled with plans and dreams you never made possible, you will have a sense of accomplishment and fond memories. Your itch would be gone. So, please. I beg you. Go conquer the world.

Progress

Dear Blog,

Never fear! I haven't been ignoring or avoiding you. I was just reading the informative answers to the Blog Survey I wrote about in my last post, and I've been using them to make plans. Thank you for not being afraid to speak up! I needed your support and your fresh ideas, and that is exactly what I got. I'm going to keep it open for a few more days and then everything will go back to normal. Well, not really. Change for the better is on the way...

A few things are happening.


It's about time for a bit of change. Over the holidays, Lit by the Crescent Moon has begun to get trimmed and worked on as best I can, adding practical things here and there. Labels and larger photos, to name a few. This will continue for the time being and may cause slight delays with a few posts. I should of just called Friday Fables something like Saturday//Sunday Stories! Anyhow, you have been warned. I am trying to make a more active and effective blog.  I am considering a reader survey {If I gain more followers, that is -- no point asking something when no one's there to answer you} to see how my readers would deal with the modifications and additions before they are properly installed. So, what do you think, dear reader? I hope things will be different, here in my little corner of the cyber world.

 I will keep you updated with any further, exciting news.

--take care

------------

Added later: After a difficult decision, I have finally concluded to go ahead with the survey and be patient until I have enough participants' answers to take in account and start the proper changes. Please go take a look at it - it can be found in my newest post, here.

Christmas.


The seasons come and go.
The clock reads half past ten.
Now candles are aglow -
It's Christmas time again.

Merry Christmas, everybody! See you really soon in my next Friday Fable. I was going to post it on Thursday but Christmas time came early this year to me. I've been celebrating all December long! I've been very busy making plans to make this blog grow and I'll make sure that next year, Christmas will be a very special time on Lit by the Crescent Moon.

I am a magpie.


Dear Blog,

Still no Friday Fables. Please forgive me. But I do have something to share. A simple, quick poem by the name of 'I am a magpie'. Nothing too special, though.

I am a magpie. 
Collecting is my craze.
I am a magpie.
Always in a haze.

I am a magpie.
Black sheep of the herd. 
I am a magpie.
Forever ignored and misheard.

I am a magpie.
Taking things to my nest.
I am a magpie.
Never stop to rest.

I am a magpie.
Protective of my kin.
I am a magpie.
But never shall I win.

I am a magpie.
Thought to not bring luck.
I am a magpie.
Spent my life being stuck.

I am a magpie.
Things will never change.
I am a magpie.
Can't keep life from being strange.


I hope you liked it! And, please, remember the next Friday Fable is coming soon.


Until next time,
Daniela

Change.

Dear Blog,

Life is full of havoc and changes lately. I'm afraid this means no Friday Fables yet. But soon. Oh yes, very soon. It will happen this week, maybe even before Friday comes. Until then, please be patient and try not to distress, torment, abduct and assassinate me.


Until next time,

P.S. I was just kidding there, by the way.
