Moves like movies

This post is about recently seen films (after a looooong drought). There is “Movie” in my blog name after all. And the screen is a Monday window too, in a way. Except for the last ten years or so, I always watched plenty of films. (Here is the list of my favourite films of all times.) Then…

WPC: MMMagic

Magic, just like chaos a couple of weeks ago, is where you find it. And if you don’t see the little one, you’re not worthy of the big. But first, the past week on my blog, seeing that this has become a regular weekend feature: I showed you my birthtown Ljubljana in Slovenia; I found a…

Ljubljana of my life

Today is the day when I can smell the snow. This takes me back to when Ljubljana, Slovenia, was home, snow was reality and all futures were potential. But first a short recap of last week on my blog: Several examples of what chaos can look like before the real chaos struck later in the week;…

WPC: Cha-cha-chaos

Another one of those challenges where I had to smack my fingers in order not to exceed my self-imposed limit of twenty images per post. Chaos is all around us, but is it really? Since it’s Sunday, I’ll give you a quick run-down through my last week’s posts first. This week I: gave you an example…

WPC: Transmogrify this!

What I love most about having a blog is that nobody can tell me what to do, because nobody is paying me for doing it. Weekly challenge? I can come up with whatever I wish and nobody can call it silly or off the point. But first, as it’s become a custom, a short walk…

WPC: Shiny crazy diamonds

For this challenge I’ve been enjoying collecting images with a certain shine to them. It can come from different sources. And yet, does it really? But first a short recap of the past week: I gave you our local beach.  I showed you our slightly pink flamingos from not so very close up.  I alerted you to…

Waiting room

“Take Your Time”, sing Slovenian band Elvis Jackson, but this post is about the times I was waiting for the time to begin, as inspired by this post from A Faraway Home. First the song. The drummer is a bit removed but still cousin, which makes me very proud. In Slovenia, with its zero degrees of…

WPC: My local beach

One of the grandest luxuries of my new home (well, fourth year running) is our local sandy beach. It is 12 km long and less than 2 km away from home. Since it is a part of WWF Nature Reserve, it is wild and in the off-season mostly deserted, if you don’t count optimistic off-shore fishermen….

Buon appetito!

The past week went by in a flash, and now I’ve got a house full of parents and won’t be much on here. This is what you might have missed in the last seven days: First I took you down to the secret beach among mindful graffiti in Castiglioncello. Then I returned to the days of…

The mind is everything

Friday is a good day for a recap of what happened on here between two Thursday Door posts. It might become regular. And then we might hop down to the beach in Castiglioncello. Don’t worry, it will all happen in one paragraph. I just wish to give those who might have missed something a chance to…

WPC: I’ve got a Quest-ion

The question of quest is an intriguing one. Let’s see what my random access memory escalator can bring to the topic. Marko Pavliha, Slovenian expert in maritime law, recently posted an article with the following paragraph (which I’ve translated myself from Slovenian, so help me dog if he doesn’t like it): “Homeland is, just like love or…

SL-WEEK 51: Happy birthday, Sylvain’s challenge!

It’s good to have anniversaries. They help me realise how time flies. It’s all one big time for me. And yet Sylvain posted his first weekly challenge one year ago. For this occasion I’ve gone through all my entries to select favourite photos from my posts. Doing this I had much fun and could not help but choose also…

Supersizing happiness tag

I had to double the happiness dose after Joey kindly dropped my name as someone who makes her happy. Here are my ten favourite things, songs and bloggers to supersize smiles. (Just ten of the) Things that make me happy, alphabetically, with a photo for each: Photo: a © signature mmm production (Just ten of the)…

Thursday Doors, June 9

Finally, a confession: The reason why I love Thursday Doors challenge so much is because of my Doors habit. As in the band. Today you get my top 20 Doors songs and a door photo for each. No matter how much I like seeing doors as such, the love of the band came first. I had every…
