Miscellaneous 2024

My dears,


Daisies are such nice flowers that it's hard not to smile at them.

I wish you many reasons to smile today.

My dears,


Isn't it beautiful when the leaves are so young?

My dears,


Spring is in full swing at Fairy Tale Green Gables. Bees buzz in the blooming apple trees and birds chirp.

My dears,


the Golden Carpets bloomed again. Delightful, vast, fragrant... One would like to dive into the sea of golden flowers.

My dears,


spring should not be missed. And even though it's only April, I remember Agnieszka Osiecka's song.
"It was May, the Saska Kępa smelled,
like crazy green lilac..."

My dears,


I wish you spring in your hearts on this cold April day...

Good morning dears :)


I wish you a wonderful spring weekend and see you at the Sunday fairy tale reading.

My dears,

it's nice to look at the collection of forest elf paintings. The pictures show lotinki from my fairy tales and Mrs. Zosia, the heroine of the fairy tale about the silver spoon...

My dears,


a frog lived in the pond. Perhaps it is an enchanted prince. Who knows? Only a kiss can explain the mystery.

Good morning dears :)


On the occasion of the upcoming Easter, I wish you many joyful, peaceful moments, beautiful weather, a very generous bunny, colorful Easter eggs and a wonderful spring outside :)
And we meet next Sunday, after the holidays, for Sunday fairy tale reading.

My dears,


May Ania's Easter creation bring a spring smile to everyone who looks at it.

My dears,


despite the cold, spring begins at Fairy Tale Green Gables.

My dears,


spring inspires artists, poets and favors declarations of love, doesn't it? So I wish you beautiful and lasting love...

My dears,


I always wanted to work in publishing. That's probably why I find so much pleasure in literary proofreading. Seemingly tedious work consumes me a lot...

My dears,
Have you ever drowned Marzanna? The one in the photo stands and looks at the passing winter and welcomes spring.

My dears,


According to Ania, daisies are the nicest flowers. They are indeed very nice.

My dears,


On Saturday, two wonderfully luminous rainbows appeared over Fairytale Green Gables. Please look how extraordinary it is. They say that somewhere on their inscrutable end, an elf is guarding a pot of gold.

Do you recognize the girl from Ania's illustration? You will soon learn the purpose of the drawing...

My dears,


It's nice when sweet, chocolate roses remain after meeting a nice person. I wish you such meetings this spring.

My dears,


It's a rainy Tuesday today... That's why I'm sending you a rainy illustration by Aga Kumuda from my fairy tale "The Enchanted Cab". The fairy-tale rain was the announcement of an extraordinary adventure. I wish you such rain.

My dears,


I wish spring around you. Let the world bloom and become more beautiful...

My dears,


spring left its first traces on Fairytale Green Gables.

My dears,


the ubiquitous flower stalls made me feel poetic, so I invite you to read the poem.

Weronika Madryas
"March Eight"

Tulips and primroses
they are for mother, grandmother, daughter.
For fifth grade girls,
Kasia, Zuzia and Basia.
And for the nature lady,
who will give them water soon.
March eight is full of flowers,
take the bouquet in your hands!

My dears,


in the fairy-tale city of Wrocław, dwarves invite you for tea. It's very nice...

My dears,


I am sending you spring wonders for a good start to the week.

My dears,
I'm currently working on poems for the primer. Among the deletions, brackets and question marks, short rhymes are born... and it's already Friday. I wish you a good weekend and invite you to a Sunday meeting with a fairy tale.

wiersze abecadlo.jpg

My dears,


coffee makes a day that starts with a foggy morning and waking up too early more vivid, doesn't it?

poranna kawa.jpg

My dears,
Doesn't this sun-drenched, mossy stone remind you of fairy tales? A forest elf will probably take a nap somewhere there, on a pillow of moss. There is no need to disturb him. It's better to tiptoe around the wonderful forest boulder.

My dears,


Please look at the snowdrops that bloomed on Fairytale Green Gables.

My dears,


today the air smelled of spring and umbrellas were not needed. I wish you long walks and beautiful views, like those photographed by Ania.

My dears,


my cacti, which I look at as I write, grow like mushrooms after the rain. The little ones are barely a memory...

My dears,


the bushes bloomed in February. Golden flowers, like suns, brighten cloudy and rainy days.

zolte kwiatki.jpg

My dears,


I thought that since there was an o, it couldn't be missing u, so today it's still a bit misspelled.

uje.jpg

My dears,


memorable rhymes are the best solution for spelling problems. So I invite you to read my poem "Ówka".

owka.jpg

My dears,


Please look, aren't vegetables inspiring? I find something poetic and painterly in the photo taken by Ania. Perhaps I will come back to this photo to put it into words...

Kalarepka.jpg

My dears,


take a closer look around. Nature announces the arrival of spring...

On a wonderfully bright day, I am sending you a smile and a photo of Ania's home garden.

My dears,


daisies are Ania's favorite flowers. Please look how nice they are, as if they were smiling.

My dears,


I wish you something sweet, something tender and a lot of sun that shines so beautifully in Wrocław today...

Walentynki.jpg

My dears,

Ania had been looking for Sleepyhead among the dwarves in Wrocław for so long that suddenly, last Saturday, she spotted a little boy taking a nap.

My dears,


I wish you a wonderful Saturday and I invite you to a Sunday meeting with a fairy tale.

My dears,


Please look at the most well-read cats in Wrocław.

My dears,


May your sleep and winter time be sweetened by tasty coffee, perfect for today's doughnut!
The illustration was made by Aga Kumuda.

My dears,

I was moved when I received a letter from Mrs. Marta Iskierka, an employee of the Miniatura Publishing House from Krakow. Well, two years ago, Mr. Mieczysław Mączka, the founder of Miniatura and the Gray-Bearded Poets Association, died. Since then, the books have been deteriorating in unheated rooms. I had the pleasure of publishing poetry and prose for children in Miniatura. The books are beautiful - hand-sewn, bound in cloth or leather, with carefully selected graphics.

Let me quote a letter from Mrs. Marta:

"Good morning Mrs. Weronika, well, nothing has changed for now, I have the costs of maintaining the premises and accounting, I could rent it, but it hasn't been renovated for a long time, I don't have the strength or funds for it, I still hope that it will be built somewhere a memorial room where I will be able to give all my souvenirs, Mieczysław devoted his entire life to poets, he was born in Wrocław and maintained a connection with this place, many of the authors of Miniatura are from Wrocław, he participated in fairs, he was associated with Warsaw as the head of the Staromiejski House of Culture, with Nowy Sącz, he founded a publishing house there, cooperated with the Lemkos and the Podhalan Association, initiated their publishing activities, but he died and is no longer needed by anyone. He was counting on the fact that there would be a group of poets who would continue the existence of Miniatura, which is why he founded the Association of Graybeard Poets, but times are what they are, everything has become more expensive, operating costs have increased and no one wants to do so. Your books are the same ones we talked about before, I have heart problems and I can neither lift nor stand in a queue at the post office, visits to Miniatura and even making a parcel are painful for me, because Mieczysław claimed that I couldn't do it I can. Maybe they'll send you on a delegation to Krakow again someday, and we'll make an appointment about books. Regards, all the best, Marta”

It would be wonderful if this noble book collection found its home. Will you help?

My dears,
and Christmas roses are still blooming in Ania's grandparents' garden. Please look how beautiful they are.

My dears,


I wish you peaceful winter evenings, like the one in the illustration made by Aga Kumuda. The fairy tale "The Footrest" will be published soon, in which you will find a cozy interior, a grandfather and a listening granddaughter.

My dears,
dreaming can be disturbing or blissful. We don't remember many dreams, but there are some that remain in our memory for a long time. Interpretations taken from dream books do not convince scientists. Despite this, scientists also try to give meaning to dreams. The idea of social dreaming involves discussing dreams together and discovering the messages hidden in them. There is an extraordinary familiarity and bond between the participants of the social dreaming matrix that accompanies the secrets shared. Because dreams are very personal. I experienced this closeness in the EUNAMES European Society for Narrative Medicine and Health Humanities group led by Maria Giulia Marini. Alice from Wonderland dreamed, the fairies from my fairy tales dream... Some people dream like Peter Pan, who never woke up. And although my great-grandmother used to say "dream mara, God has faith", social dreaming sessions allowed me to look deeper into myself. All I can do is wish you peaceful dreams, reflect on them while keeping your distance...

Spiacy elf.jpg

My dears,


On this cloudy, winter day, I send you a smile and wish you reasons to smile.

Zyczenia usmiechu.jpg

My dears,


I finished writing the fairy tale Footrest, for which Ania prepared an illustration for the cover. This is an extraordinary story largely inspired by real events. Soon you will be able to read and maybe even listen.

Podnozek.jpg

My dears,
Another year has passed since the death of Mr. Mieczysław Mączka, the founder of Miniatura Publishing House. Miniature books, mainly poetry, were beautifully published, hand-sewn, bound in cloth or leather, with a well-thought-out graphic design. Today they lie in a closed publishing house and wait for better times for literature. What if we created the Institute of Miniature Remembrance and deposited there this extraordinary intellectual legacy of the deceased founder of the Gray-Bearded Poets Association? Isn't this a noble idea, suggested to me by Mr. Mączka's friend?

My dears,


long walks have become our winter tradition. It's sad to go back to school reality...

My dears,
If you would like to travel back in time for a moment, it is worth visiting the Toy Museum. There, among dolls, teddy bears and soldiers, you will discover the charms of childhood from the past.

My dears,


a mysterious gate and winding stairs lead to a mysterious alley. You'd like to take a look and see what's hidden there.

Tajemniczy zaulek m.jpg

My dears,
and there is peace and quiet around...

My dears,


On such a cloudy day, I'm sending you a pinch of Illusion for a good mood.

My dears,
Extraordinary things accompany not only fairy tales. Please look at the photos from the Museum of Illusions.

My dears,


The cold wind did not stop us from walking along the dwarven trail through the streets of Wrocław and climbing nearly three hundred steps to the Bridge of Penitents in the Cathedral of St. Mary Magdalene.

Good morning dears :)


Winter holidays start today in Wrocław. And on this occasion, I wish you a wonderful holiday, lots of sun, snow, snowman building, sledding, skiing and skating. And tomorrow, as every week, I invite you to read fairy tales on Sunday.

My dears,


I cordially invite you to a Sunday meeting with a fairy tale, during which you will listen to the continuation of the story about the nice Dr. Groundhog.

My dears,


it's nice to stop in a charming place for coffee, especially after extremely inspiring and interesting literary translation workshops.

Urocze miejsce na kawe m.jpg

Good morning dears,


On today's Epiphany, I will show you my collection of nativity scenes in glass balls. Although there are no kings in any of them, they are still beautifully made and worth attention.

My dears,

on Prince Edward Island, the memory of Lucy Maud Montgomery lives on. The red-haired dreamer won the hearts of girls (and probably not only girls) of many generations and nationalities. Therefore, next Monday, the second part of the meeting devoted to novel translations will be held at the Faculty of Philology of the University of Wrocław, this time focusing on English, Japanese and Italian translations.
