August 8, 2017 Back in Austria, after the best time of my life! And with news!

Hello dear friends!

So where to start… after so much has happened, so much is happening and the long time I’ve been gone from my blog. I will start with an apology to all of you, every single one of you wonderful friends, the ones who’ve known me and the many who came here through the blog of my dearest Ralph. I apologise for not posting on here, like I had thought I will do. I travelled to Spain, thinking I’ll be posting from there… But then Ralph and I were so much within our own happiness, enjoying every second we had together. From the moment I got out of the Taxi in front of Ralph’s home in Spain, to our first hug, we were just in the clouds with our minds. We were pretty much useless for anything else but enjoying each others company.

We were just as relaxed, natural, and at ease with each other, as we’ve been all the time before during our many hour-long calls, our emails and messages. It was even better than I had expected. We are so good together, it’s pretty much a miracle. We complete each other in a perfect way. And from the first things we did together, like making orange juice, we were a perfect team in even such little tasks. Everything between us is smooth, happy, natural and totally uncomplicated. It’s like we understand each other blindly, and as if we’ve known each other for all our lives.

It really was so amazing, so much more than I could never have imagined before, that we forgot everything else, as the time went by so quickly. Ralph started to reply to many of his lovely readers after quite a while, little by little. I was usually beside him or nearby, but still useless for writing a blog post…

The cats Samantha and Sonic are just the sweetest! They too stole my heart in no time and I love them! They seem to have taken a liking to me as well! Yay! I had so much fun playing with them, cuddling them, and taking to them. It was so sweet to sleep in a bed with Ralph and two cats!

As for sweet Murli, I was so very relieved and happy, because she was just fine, and happy, eating and playing and cuddling normally, thanks to my Dad. He took good care of her and they had quite a bit of fun. I was in communication with Dad every day, so I constantly knew how she’s doing, which put me at ease. Although I was missing her lots, and I cried for quite a while when the train left Graz for Vienna, on my first day of travel to Spain (I had to take a hotel room near the airport, since the flight to Malaga, Spain, was going very early in the morning the next day).

I will be writing a couple more posts soon, as there is so much to post about, I can’t do it in just one post. There are many pictures and things to write about, so I will do that in a couple separate posts. Today, this post is for the most important updates, so everybody knows about what’s going on with us.

So on to the news!

Back when we were still only communicating over the distance, in our many hours long daily calls over google hangouts, and countless long messages and emails, we were already amazed at how amazingly well we get on. We never seem to run out of things to talk about, and we are able to talk about everything. We’re both open and honest with each other, and we found that we have all interests in common, and the things we like and dislike, the way in which we go about our lives and the way in which we deal with things. We constantly found new things we had in common. And everything is so smooth and natural between us, so easy and relaxed and happy, it’s like a dream. Something like this doesn’t normally happen I always thought. I certainly would have never expected to find someone to love and who would love me. I had given up on finding someone for me long ago, when I was about 25. Now with 37, BANG! Finding the love of my life, when I least expected it.

Our time together in Spain, absolutely and completely reaffirmed what we had already felt and wanted before I came to Spain, and much much more on top of that. While there, Ralph and I got engaged, all official with a ring and everything. I had said YES within a millisecond. YAY!!!!! And I say Yes a quadrillion times more, endlessly for the rest of our lives. I say yes with all I am, and my heart and soul. Not a single hint of any doubts in either of our hearts.

For some, or even many, it might seem crazy, and that we’re doing things too fast… But for someone on the outside, it’s just different, as they can’t see within our hearts and minds, and how wonderful we are together, and how well we take care of each other and how happy we are, and how absolutely honestly we mean it with each other. For us, there is no reason to lose any time that we could spend together as a couple, as husband and wife. There’s no reason to wait, as everything is already clear and it could not become any more clear and certain that we are right for each other. So any waiting period would not change anything, but would just be time we’re not together. And with time, everybody can see for themselves how wonderful we are together and how much we help and support each other.

Hopefully, within September, Ralph will be able to come to Austria, as well as the cats, his belongings and all the contents of his apartment, after I have found us a home here in or around my city of Graz. From the moment on, that I have my dearest Ralph back, as I pick him up from the airport in Vienna, he will never again have to do anything alone, as I’ll be there, with him, for him and through everything. I love him so much, and I want to see him happy and make his life easier, in any way that I’m able to. Ralph is such a big support for me as well, with my anxiety, and my medical conditions, and together we are complete. Together we can get things done perfectly, as we really complete each other to such a degree, it’s like we’re really meant to be together.

Some of you will already know about it all, since Ralph’s post went live late last night, and the wonderful and talented Resa, has finished her newest art gown, which was another really miraculous thing, because of the way the ideas for the gown and the gown itself seemed to have gone their own way, as if there was some foresight involved. Resa also mentioned us and our announcement in her own very sweet words. You can read all about it here: O Royal Treasure

I will also reblog Ralph’s and Resa’s post on my blog, as they’re just so wonderfully amazing and important.

I thank you so much Ralph, for your amazingly wonderful post about us, and I thank you as well Resa, for dedicating your stunningly beautiful gown to Ralph and now me too, and for your kind words! You are really amazing! Your gown is so beautiful, I’m just speechless. Stunned! Thank you so much!

So that’s it for now, for this post. But there will be more to follow! With more pics!

Thank you all so very much, for all the kind words towards Ralph and I, it’s been absolutely amazing. We’re speechless, getting so much love from so many of you. I thank you from the bottom of my heart!

Sending lots of love to all of you, from Murli and I!

Art Gowns

Were you ever impassioned to make an Art Gown from 150 O’s?

Yes! Then you probably know this year is Canada’s 150th birthday.

In 1967, Canada was 100 years old. Our national anthem is “O Canada”. In celebration, Joyce Wieland created a famous lithograph of O’s formed by her red painted lips.

Yet, this is the Art Gown dedicated to Ralph from Bluefish Way, and Ralph lives in Spain. Ah, but he lives in Cañada del Real Tesoro, Spain. Canada/Cañada – it was a thrilling discovery.

According to Mini-Me, Ralph, and what Belen Soto told me, it means Path to the Royal Treasure.

Turned out the path to O Royal Treasure was a 4 month trek.

150 flowers were created. Using a dinner plate, and 2 different sized saucers. I cut out 150 circles, gathered the edges, & drew them  into flowers. I painted my lips red, formed an…

Re-blogging this absolutely sweet post from my love Ralph!

~Resa’s beautiful Art Gown~

My dear friend Resa from Toronto,  Canada, has dedicated her latest creation to me.  I am really thrilled and honoured.  Thank you my friend.

This is her story of how it came about.

“I want to tell you about this Art Gown I’m making.

Quiet Samantha !!

It goes back to the beginning of May. That is when I began to think about an idea for the gown.  As I knew I would be dedicating it to Ralph, the first thing I thought of was a “cat” theme.  Then I thought of a humour gown, which made me think of court jesters and harlequins. This lead to thoughts ofthe Venetian Ball, where many of the gowns seem to have a harlequin effect.

However, there are challenges for the Art Gowns, and this is what helps define them as art.  I am not…
