The unicorn is a legendary creature that has been described since antiquity as a beast with a single large, pointed, spiraling horn projecting from its forehead. It was depicted in ancient seals of the Indus Valley Civilization and was mentioned by the ancient Greeks in accounts of natural history by various writers, including Ctesias, Strabo, Pliny the Younger, and Aelian. The Bible also describes an animal, the re’em, which some versions translate as unicorn.
In the Middle Ages and Renaissance, it was commonly described as an extremely wild woodland creature, a symbol of purity and grace, which could only be captured by a virgin. In the encyclopedias its horn was said to have the power to render poisoned water potable and to heal sickness.
Since this blog is not really capable of cleansing poisoned water, nor does it need to be captured by virgins, it can still heal and nurture your soul’s desire for information about the world around us. Information, processed by a “rainbow-farting brain” and served to you in an easy to digest way. Information, taking you down roads you never thought you would go and depths of thought you never, well, thought of.
No, but seriously… ?
In all seriousness, the unicorn behind these lines is nothing but an ordinary girl, looking for diversity and a getaway from the routines of our daily lives. Diversity means that on these pages you will find all kinds of things related to travel, mindfulness and sometimes even cooking & yoga.
It is for everyone that has been told it is good to focus only on 1 thing and specialize in it until it’s perfect, but they’ve always felt the urge to seek diversity. It is with hopes to inspire you to seek the beauty in everything you see and to take time off your busy day to stop and admire what is in front of you.
What about the unicorn?
The unicorn’s name is Annie or as most of my friends call me – Ann. After years working with clients, I have made it my purpose to assist with communication issues between people by showing them how to seek answers within before judging someone else. And this is not as easy as I thought it would be 😀
The constant trips we had to take when I was little have made me despise staying in one place so now I am always looking for places to go be it just for a day or for a longer getaway. All while meeting new, diverse people and improving my photography. So now I am hoping to be able to share all the joy with you too 🙂
You can find a tiny bit of my photos here and soon on this blog.
