Colorful Rainbow of Joy ∼  Journalist, Lover, Poetess, Traveller

I am from everywhere and nowhere, a joyful vagabond and global citizen. I’m a magazine, an entire colorful book of life lived thoroughly. I became a fashion model only to travel to Asia before it got to resemble too much the West. As I independently adventured into places that have changed profoundly over the past two decades – Chile, China, Cuba, Egypt, Indonesia, Malaysia, Peru, Thailand, well over 60 countries. Later graduating in journalism with psychology in London, I connected the spheres of theory and reality. My Slavic name, Radka, means joy. An ancient concoction of words when split, mean the “spirit of joy”. Naturally then, my mind has always been centered by happiness, but yours can be too, hence we all have a choice — I believe that the only real liberty of humanity is having a choice to feel and be a certain way.

Curious as a squirrel in an urban park, I studied documentary filmmaking, pharmacology, Jungian psychology, mythology, religious scriptures beyond the canonical (Harvard Divinity School), Culinary Nutrition (certified by NGI in New York), sniffed and sipped myself through the Advanced Certificate in Wine by WSET. While managing my former wine blog Winebeing, I contributed to established lifestyle publications in Singapore (Wine & Dine) and London (Decanter, Huffington Post).

I confess, like St. Augustine, I sin. Ever since I stepped on the Italian soil at the age of 16, hedonism plagued my mind, tongue and receptors of pleasure. I feel the decadence of life through all of my hungry senses. Life can be sweet, but also bitter, too salty or umami if you know how it tastes.

Melting faraway soil on my tongue — oh, chocolate, you were created by the Aztec Gods! Sipping tea to calm my heart with the eastern liquid gold. A spoonful of Brittany butter or a mouthful of aged Comtè transport me to the lush meadows where the cows joyfully graze. In summer, my nose and palate often venture to Provence — fresh goat’s cheese with ripe figs and a twist of fougasse washed down with a fragrant rosé. La vie est belle! Music and smile transform every day into a feast, whether is it is me joining in a flamenco swirl at a Seville bar or seduction of tango in Argentina. A barefoot stroll in nature connects with my roots, while gazing up to the sky opens my mind to ceaseless wonder.

I seek the best quality in daily life. The explorer also lives in my belly. I travel to tease my nose at vibrant farmers markets and to taste all the seasonal local bounty. Licking my fingers — shamelessly, juicy wild berries. I smile, my tinted lips wide apart. More bread, please, merci, grazie, muchas grazias, danke schön! Iced pleasures lure me in the summer heat as my child-self raptures in bliss. I share an infant’s innocence, always happy on the beach.

 

Je t’aime, la vie!  Wild at heart, free.

A bon vivant, that woman seduced by la dolce vita, not a hermit hiding from discovery and experience, I roam the world for the next bite, peak, sip or kiss along the ever changing road — thus I never age in my soul. Numbers are for accountants, life is better through music, smile and verbs.

Ascot, England

I enjoy creative cooking projects, the playful spirit of dogs, foraging, eating more sustainably, philosophy, reading anything wise or beautiful, immersive traveling, hiking, horse riding, free dancing (choreography turns me off, so groove is mine!), mindful tea time, sharing wine and food with friends. I ground through art, meditation, simple breath, ikebana flower harmony, nature, poetry, qi-gong and yoga. An urban flâneur and an open-hearted naturalist, while circling the Earth my wings embrace the vast beauty of every single day.

I found my joyful ethos in life. I hope that La Muse Blue will guide you to discover the potential of yours.

How can I drop that self-expressive I? “I” am not “a” robot, so here I share my authentic soul, no commercial interests or ego.
