To spring, poetry and donkeys

Today, in order to celebrate a few things, a donkey and a man. Not only did spring decide we were worthy of it once again, today is also World Poetry Day. If you are lucky, you are able to pay your coffee with a poem in certain places in Slovenia, courtesy of a shrewd sponsor…

WPC: Atop of the morning to ya

The title goes well with yesterday’s Fiesta, whereas the photos are two apiece from different tops I have climbed in my two countries. But first the last week on my blog lest I forget. There were quite a few topics: Last week’s subject of “wish” had me running for a pretty little church; I told you…

May

May I interest you in twelve images from last May for my calendar 2016? It is my birthday month, that’s why it’s probably my favourite. And the nature plays along too. ADD-IT: I’ve just realised that I only posted ten photos, rather than my usual 12 as I did for other months. Fixing that with…

Happy March 8!

Throwing flowers at favourite women because it’s today. They are coming over too, my two favourite women, first one and then the other. Party! And now let’s see how spring flowers come rolling in around here. No matter how many marches it takes, before we’re allowed to be free. Photo: © signature mmm

Fiction is a whale

Fiction was invented the day Jonah arrived home and told his wife that he was three days late because he had been swallowed by a whale. ― Gabriel García Márquez (quote reblogged from Logical Quotes) I seem to have a problem with fiction – writing it, that is, far from reading it. That’s why here are some…

Not for a man

The title is part of a joke which I shall post at the end so that you’ll have to read it all. I have never been a huge fan of comics, that is stand-up comedians, but whenever I encounter one I tend to give it a shot. The one I remember the most is Tim…

WPC: Against all odds, evenly

Not that there were any odds to begin with, and yet I’ve come a long way. Geographically speaking. We shall have a look at how it all began in a minute, but first the previous week on my blog. There were: Twelve photos from last April as part of my 2016 Calendar; full moon, if…

Beasts and full moon

On a full moon you can understand what beasts are saying, or so they say (okay, I’m saying it now). But it might be that they are just laughing at us. The last time I posted the full moon, we had a score to settle with a different kind of beast. It’s a work in progress….

April

According to my calendar, it’s time for April. But first the last week on my blog lest we forget: For last week’s solitude challenge I describe five times when I felt most alone in the past and give you present photo evidence of how pretty solitude can be; I show you Piran on the Slovenian…

WPC: Shadowlands

The true history hides in the shadows, they say. A quick dash through my pack members and their shadows, plus some other Slovenian shadows for you. And now I better rush out since it’s almost 1.45 am for when the full moon, lunar eclipse and a passing of a green comet with the violet tail…

Thursday Doors, February 9 2017

We are back to Siena for another doorfest. Which reminds me: my sister, who did the guest Asian Thursday Doors post on here last week, said, reading all your encouraging comments: “You all are so cute! Such enthusiasm! As if they were puppies and not doors.” Here they are then, almost twenty Siena door puppies. Included…

WPC: Solitude standing

Alone, lonely, solitary, solitaire. Take your pick. But… Is there any other way? First let’s take a look at the past week on my blog, as is the weekend custom. There were: twenty examples of repurposing for last week’s Weekly Photo Challenge; a loooooongish mash of classic English poetry and Doors lyrics, because I can; a surprising…

Keep ourselves alive

I’m all under the influence of an Italian earthquake winter tale and need some flowers from the home turf now. Just earlier I came across a post by an American woman living in that region of Italy where they have been enduring severe earthquakes on and off since last October.  She spent Christmas sick and her dog ate poison…

CFFC: Outer is inner

This is what the bottom layer of a round wooden structure in “Škocjanski zatok” nature reserve is hiding. It’s time for Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge again, and the outer shall be inner shall be outer. Photo: © signature mmm For:

WPC: The story of repurposing

This subject has again made me giddy and it was hard to stick to twenty images. There is just so much repurposing going on all around me. Before the photo story unrevels, I wish to draw your attention to the last week on my blog. It was quite busy. I’ve even managed to more or…
