The taste of affection April 14, 2009

 (image by me)

I wonder if our favorite food represents in a way our character? – It would be logical, as everything we prefer somehow represents us 🙂

I suddenly  realised that most of the food I like has the same kind of structure -it is very soft and oft puree-like: potato puree, mango-lassie, zefir, fruit-puree, sponge-cake, souffle, etc.

All these products remind me of tenderness and affection, which I value the most in myself and in relationships…


Can you find a correlations with your favorite foods and character features?

LOVE, axinia


What`s in Russian eyes? September 28, 2008


In 2001 Mr. G.Bush surprised the world with his memorable description of his Russian counterpart. “I looked the man in the eye,” Mr. Bush said of Putin after their meeting in Slovenia, adding, “I was able to get a sense of his soul.”

In 2008, John McCain told the Republican Jewish Coalition that he saw something else entirely when he met the Russian leader: “I looked into Mr. Putin’s eyes and I saw three things — a K and a G and a B.”

Shortly after Obama said that he wants to pay attention to Putin’s actions, not his eyes. Foreign policy should not be set by an opinion of a leader’s eyes.

I believe there was no other president in the history whose eyes have been such a popular topic 🙂

Another take: I once met a professional in the field of Intercultural communication, she looked at me and said “You must be Russian, you have typical Russian eyes”. (more…)
