Introducing Svetlana otherwise known as Kallini2010

Svetlana gave me permission to use all her writings, pictures, and videos to create this autobiography. With saying that, I will do my best to show you who Svetlana is through my eyes. Her real name is Svetlana but on Hubpages she is known as Kallini2010.

Svetlana shared an interesting aspect on part of her blog concerning her personality dimensions. Knowing some of these dimensions may give the readers a look into who she is and what makes her the unique person she is.

She has worked as a secretary, executive secretary, logistics officer, tutor, telemarketer, trained to be a mechanical engineer (physical metallurgy), Information Systems Specialist. All these positions have had a direct influence I believe in who this person has become.

Svetlana favorite or a color she ranked number one on this personality test is blue which describes a person that seeks harmony, tries to make the world a better place.  See her hub on blues.

Her second favorite color is green. She is analytical, systematic, uses intellectual stimulation, knowledge, and shows much competence.

“Begin from the beginning. Go back and run in circles. Eventually things will emerge and sort themselves out and you would not be able to close the floodgates. That is my theory. It’s not exactly a theory, but since I am struggling with the beginning, so I am thinking …”Just do it”. Begin. And I am not only talking about writing. I am talking about everything.”

The third color is Gold which depicts Svetlana has a sense of duty, responsibility, security, stability, order, and plan. The last color is orange, which represents freedom, activity, and are doers and risk-takers. Svetlana work values are friendship, to help society, and to influence people. Her personal strengths are being reasonable, sincere, and can be strong-minded. The work aspect shows her as being cooperative, reliable, and teachable. Her inner skills in communication are ones that influence, motivate, and persuade. She has great creative expression and it is no wonder she has the gift of being a creative writer, creating wonderful images with pictures, videos, writing words on  the page, not to forget the dance. Dance is a very important aspect of Svetlana’s life. It is no wonder that she is able to use her body in great coordination through her dance. Svetlana shares the best part of herself, which is being a helper, which is humanistic, kind, and has great perceptive. She is a creator, one that is non-conforming, idealistic, and very imaginative.

This was from one of the first hubs I read of Svetlana. I also struggled with trying to say her name but I have it down now and know how to spell it correctly..It is the right thing to do in getting to know someone and respecting their name.

“And then I came to live in Canada.  Oh, boy… Most people found it difficult to pronounce my name.  “Can I call you Lana?”  I would usually say “Please, don’t, because you are removing the meaning of the name”. “Svet” in Russian means Light as in sunlight, moonlight, bright light, any light.  What I did not say was “You are trying to castrate my name and I don’t like it.”  People would say “But we cannot pronounce it, it is unpronounceable”.  There is only one word in the English language that is close to the sound combination“svelte” and it was precisely “sve” that was giving some people trouble.  They did not want to make an effort.  That was all. You know how it made me feel?  I came up with a comeback (a compromise of sorts), I was suggesting that I will let those who cannot (would not!) pronounce my name in full call me Lana if they let me cut their names in half and use the second part.  Feel free to exercise.  Irene would be Ene or Ne, Thomas would be Mas or As, William would be Iam or Am.  How many people liked it?  You are right – zero.  I know you might think it is ridiculous, but I did not like to lose my name.  Later I sort of came up with a short cut“Sweetlana” for those who were beyond hope.”

Let me assure you, it is not wise to enter Svetlana’s hubs and try to read halfheartedly. They are deep, thought-provoking, and you may have to reread as her words paint a page like a tapestry filled with many colors.

You may look at one color and ask yourself, ” is that blue? No, I do not think it is blue! What color of blue is that, I have never seen that before?”

There may be no name to give that color blue, and does it really matter that the type of blue have a name? In Svetlana’s own words,

“I chase Blue bird of happiness that lives around

It refuses to live in captivity

Happiness and possession are from different galaxies

Captivity is not what the Blue Bird dreams about

It is freedom”

“Everybody is creative. To remember what it is (was) you have to remember your childhood. Be silly, be ridiculous, let go of what you know. You do not know all that much. Just be what you want to be.”

Svetlana writes from her heart and wants each person to take his or her own interpretation from her writings. She writes for the love of writing. She has passions about many things; she is not scared to put the pen to the page. This in itself is a gift. She does not care if her hub score goes up or down, or to win any competition, she writes because,

“I despise competition

I am not going to fight you for the first place

It is too crowded

I am taking the last one

At least it will be only mine.

If you want to score


Take everything

In a match “15:Love”

I will take Love

I will take Love any day

No, it does not depend on anything”

One of Svetlana’s greatest joys is her son Daniel.

Being a mother is one of her greatest joys. Svetlana’s shares some of the problems boys and girls face in school. She is like any other mother wanting the best for her child. She has written a great hub on the struggles that children face in a school setting.

“But for my son I do not wish conformity, I do not wish my bumpy journey; I want him to know who he is, what he is, what he is good at and that at any rate he can succeed. I do believe that every child is creative, talented, capable, and unique. All our children need for blooming are the right conditions, love and patience.’

There is one more thing that I would like to share about Svetlana and that is her love of dance. Bringing all the colors together in a perfect dance and it all lives within my friend Svetlana.

“It was October 2011. The month of magic and romance. But tango is not a secret. Tango was a catalyst for me, because I am a dancer. They said “you are a natural”. Natural versus artificial. Dancing is in my nature, I knew it all along. But… what took me so long? It does not matter as long as I keep going in the right direction.Wherever you go, there you are. I am ” At peace with myself. Finally.”

Thank you my friend for allowing me to share your thoughts and writings. I am sure I have not covered all the depths of your creative self, but it has been fun trying.  It has been my honor.

God bless,

  1. Sunnie, it is stunning! I have no words. I am very grateful to you. You did something for me that I would have never put together like that. I think you have a talent and you have a niche.

    As far as wonderfulness goes, sorry, cashing wonderfulness goes – you can do it.

    Thank you from the bottom of my heart,

    I cannot promise I can do something for you, but if I would be able, I will. Any day.

    You have a gift,
    You have a heart,
    You are full of LIGHT
    You are unique
    You are LOVE

    • Dear Svetlana,
      I am just thrilled that you like it…I was having trouble with my computer in getting it posted and was It did come together. It was my pleasure and honor..I was trying to remember your hubs and different things that stuck in my mind..of course I had to put your prince in there too..Big smiles here in Texas..There is nothing I expect or want in return. Your friendship is more than enough. I enjoy doing this with all my heart.
      Take care,

  2. Although I was aware of kalinini2010 as a writer in HubPages, I’ve met her only a few days ago ‘avatar-to-avatar’ in an opposing position in another writer’s space. But after 3-4 comments back and forth we understood each other’s premise and moved on. Curiosity sent me to her latest hub. I was intrigued by the intellectual quality and artistic presentation and, of course, I was compelled to leave a comment. Then she surprised me with a powerful and challenging reply, forcing me to dive deeper into the topic and to return to her with my opinions about it. And so I’ve experienced the exciting, intellectual interaction with a writer as strong-minded as I. She also gave me the opportunity to meet her via private messages, where she surprised me with an honest, openhearted and friendly personality. Reading Svetlana writings will surely stimulate my indolent brain into full capacity again. Thank you Sunnie for including Svetlana in this most required and efficient Pen-to-Page of yours.

  3. This is a poetic tribute and introduction. Svetlana, your name is beautiful and I applaud you for defending the integrity of it. I am so pleased to meet you here on Sunnie’s Pen to Page.

    • Thank you, Martie, I am very touched. It is a new beginning and it is overwhelming. I hope, I believe that things will change for all of us very soon.

      Brenda, thank you for your words. We did not have a pleasure to meet yet, but you are welcome to read my writings. As for the integrity – I no longer defend my name. I took a pseudonym – Dolores Marina de la Luz, but I am flexible enough to use a new name every day. I love names and maybe I want to be called this and that…

      Today I was Donna Rosa D’Alvadorez.


      Let tomorrow come.

      Thank you for your words. I think the credit goes to Sunnie Day, I think she must explore this gift and do profiles, biographies, reviews for a fee.

      My signature line from now on:

      “Dreams do not have expiration date”.

  4. Found this through hubpages if want to know the linking, I feel so fortunate I did. I am still in awe of your incredible ability to write and express.

    • Thank you, jenibeans, for your comment. I am sorry I am so slow to respond – I have been too busy these days – I don’t read or write. But I appreciate your comment so much – it is not every day someone writes my biography or someone else reads it and feels moved enough to leave a comment. Someone who does not know me at all…

      Thank you. And you are welcome to read everything that I have written so far – it is not much, but it is me. Me the way I am – no sugar-coated, not beautified, not made palatable, not adjusted to what should be or expected.

      Expected by whom and for what? Life is short. I can just as well be MYSELF. Permission granted.

    • Thank you, Lord de Cross. I am sorry I am not up to speed with everything that is happening. I am mostly at Facebook uttering insanities hoping to get some reaction. Toronto is dead. Dead Sea is therapeutic – maybe we should cultivate Dead People Treatment Tourism? Come and see the Dead City and realize that your life is not THAT bad? Do you want to visit?

      The worst hotels, the worst customer service, the bloody weather…

      I am not complaining. I am writing. Very stimulating.

      Happy New Year.
