WPC: This Order

You are used to it by now, my (dis)order.

Unlike in my living arrangements, closets, drawers, yard and things like that, I keep substantial and surprising order in my head. I swear. It’s not an easy job but it’s the least I can do. 😀

My blog is a reflection of that. To a pro my photos might not look that much in order, but they are just how I like them. Here is a trio that I’ve been saving for a while, and I might as well use them to display my inner order aligning with an outer scene. A new sight or two like this captured and I’m happy for a week.

These were taken in Šmartno in “Slovenian Tuscany”, just like a bunch of doors and windows from previous posts that are gathered here. On the wall are remembered victims of Fascist terror in the region.

    Fascinating little building, beautiful, really — its purpose, its look — what is the yellow/orange box?

    I think my gray matter must surely look like spaghetti lol!
    My external stuff is tidy like whoa.

    1. Thank you, Joey. For a moment I considered telling in my post about the yellow box but I thought it’s as clear to all as it is to me who grew up with them: it’s a post box! Official The Post of Slovenia box. 🙂 In my youth of letters and postcards it was of top priority importance. It’s like a smile. All hail the spaghetti monster! 😀

        Ah, groovy! It does look like a letter box, but then I wondered why they’d have one there. Am I daft? People write to it? Or is it an outgoing box?

      2. Oh, right! I haven’t thought about it. Do you have the same word for inboxes and outboxes? Are they both called “mailbox”? This is an outbox, which means you throw mail in, mailpeople collect it and dispatch to proper addresses. But it would so great somebody would address their mail to “that little anti-Fascist drinking fountain with the mailbox which MMM put on her blog”. 😀

        We actually don’t much specify. Mailbox is used for both.

    I especiallly love the angle of the first shot with the tree growing out. I, too, wonder what the gold box is. It looks like a French Horn image on the front.
    In case of emergency, open, extract French horn and blow???

    1. Hihih, Judy, you’re not far off – this is a post box! It is still the same colour as it was when I was young and letters and postcards performed the role of the internet. The French horn is the official sign of the Post of Slovenia. I guess in the past this was how a postman announced his presence. 😀 I love seeing this box around, no matter how very rarely I still use it.

    Can I ask you a question? I don’t know much about Slovenia, but is it true that Slovenian people used to hate Italians because they thought we were all fascists?

    1. Oh, Sara, most obviously not everybody hate you, see where I am! 😉 Seriously though, after the war it might have been different but now it’s not like that at all any more. I’d say Slovenians like Italians for their emotionality, hedonism, passion and just love of life, but are not so fond of Italian tourists in Slovenia since they seem to be so loud and a bit patronising. Plus they are treated better in Slovenian restaurants because they order more and tip better. Hard to compete with that! 😉 It’s also true that the first words of my mom after I’d told her I was moving to Italy was: “But you don’t even like Italians!” Hahhah. As for Fascism and nationalism, Slovenians are now even worse, I’m afraid. 😦

        Oh, don’t worry I wasn’t playing the victim nor implying that Slovenians are against Italians 😁 It was genuine historical curiosity, since even in Italy nowadays there are linguistic minorities that consider Italians Fascists :\ (But they are people who have lived in their own little bubble for a long time, so I don’t think they know that the rest of Italy wasn’t being treated better during Fascism :\\) I was curious about how Slovenians perceive history and the neighbours 😁 Even history sometimes is subjective!

        Ugh, Italian tourists can indeed being a pain in the arse sometimes…

        (This is OT, but did you know that when I was kid and the TV signal was analogical, the TV of my parents was able to catch an Istrian channel!? I couldn’t understand a word, but sometimes I watched it 😂)

      2. Oh, I think amore also said that when he was young in Rome he watched cartoons on TV Koper Capodistria, Slovenian TV channel for Italian minority in Slovenia, so it was (still exists) mostly in Italian. You must mean this one! I remember the first ever NBA games on our territory they broadcast much later and Dan Peterson’s commentary in his American Italian: “Illll miglioorrre giocatoooore della partita delle stelle.” 😀

        I don’t think that was the one, actually…it was entirely in Slovenian 🤔

        LOL at Dan Peterson 😂

      4. Hm, there are not so many Slovenian TV channels, especially not Istrian… I wonder what you were watching. On TV Koper-Capodistria some shows were in Italian, some in Slovenian.

        🤔🤔 Maybe you are right…I was a kid and I honestly don’t remember the name of the channel.
