Good Bye!

Drawing by my daughter Anna (then 7 y.o.), computer graphics by my brother Andrei Lialin

Hello my friends,

This will be the last post in my blog - I feel that it run its course and it's time for me to move on. I'll probably have another web presence in the future, and quite possibly another blog as I do enjoy this form very much. I don't know yet, I'll see how it goes. I want to thank you for a wonderful, joyful journey together! I'm wishing you all the best both in your creative endeavors and your life which is, to me, the ultimate form of art. Imagine, believe and create!

With love,
Natalia

  8. I sad this is your last post. I know I've not commented for a while and just when I'm catching up with my blogs I land on this post, especially as I've always enjoyed reading your blog having found you via Sylvia at 40+ style. I've loved following your style and stories, your love of colour and your surroundings. But life changes doesn't it? It doesn't stay still and some things come with us on the journey, evolve or just fall away for whatever reason.
    Wherever you're journeying onto next, I wish you well. Please let us know where it takes you as I know there are many who would love to be even a small part of that adventure.

  10. I've been at a loss of words for the last week since reading the headline-thinking goodbye was just a pause. You are such a gracious and talented woman and will be missed in words and pictures. Best wishes for you, Justin, and Anya. Your friendship on line has been wonderful and someday I hope to see you at a writers conference, both of us doing exactly what we want with our words.

  11. Natalia, I missed you in my feed and come over to find your goodbye. Life moves us on and we must move with it. I completely understand. I hope you know how much your warm wise words have meant to me.
    You have been a joyous presence, jumping out of the screen before me, full of life and laughter and your own inimitable take on things. Thankyou for your comments on my writing. And thanks for sharing your work with us, especially as it was in a foreign tongue. Although honestly I could never tell!
    We will meet again when it's time.
    All the best my lovely friend. Kisses! And say goodbye to Justin as well. xo Jazzy Jack

Your writing, your personal style and your positive outlook are all inspirational. Much love and best wishes. Missing you already, Natalia. xoxo

  18. I understand!! I frequently question whether or not to continue blogging. It's wonderful, but then sometimes too much. I have made some great friends, however!! I'm coming to Portland OR over Thanksgiving to spend time with my son and his family. Please email me (jeanvox@hotmail.com) if you think there might be a possibility of meeting up somewhere. I would love to give you a hug. XXOO
