I’ll tell you the secret. I’m into the Tarot cards. And this particular Tarot card presenting 18th Major Arcana “Moon” is very well done. It gives you that feeling of the Arcana.
Moon shows the Path which leads to the Mysterious Towers representing Magic Knowledge. Someday everyone come out of Marsh (society) just like the Crayfish on the card and has to overcome inertia sucking you back to the Marsh. Then you’ll step out on your Path and will be walking in the dark not knowing what is ahead of you, and you’ll be misunderstood, and your friends and family (Dog) and foes (Wolf) will try to confuse you and get you back telling you what to do, laughing at you. But you should listen to your heart and continue the journey.
So, the message is… it is important to know your Path and follow it no matter what, overcoming all the difficulties. Because this is how we grow.

I used real Buryat’s pressed tea bought near the Lake Baikal. It supposed to be boiled for a few hours. No need to do that with regular black or green tea. Continue reading
Yesterday I went to a gym.
Gym in Russian village is kinda nonsense. Or from the other hand a huge social achievement. And this one is quite good. In New York I went to the Bally’s Total Fitness gym on Kings Highway, because it was the nearest and cheapest (not the best one but with swimming pool and steam room). As I compare all gyms to Bally’s I must say this one is quite satisfying. It has got all the most common equipment to meet my needs: stepmill, stationary bike, treadmills, cross trainers, strength training machines, free weights, hoola-hoops, massager machines.
And by the way gym is extremely cheap: 30 rubles (1$) per hour. Continue reading
Arkhipka made such an incredible jump in his intellectual development. The most surprising thing to me is that he seem to try to pronounce cats name. She is Kleopatra (Klyopa we call her usually), and as soon as she appears around him he happily repeats “Kh-Kh-Kh”. This is amazing!
Also he afraids of camera sound a bit, thats why he has that “about-to-cry” expression on above picture.
