WPC: Eva and Adam nescent

I don’t like words that I don’t know how to pronounce and don’t know what they mean. “Fleeting” makes more sense. Until I learn them, that is. So thank you for the lesson. Still, I had to break it down: into “Eva” (and Adam) and “nescent”. I like the definition of the latter: “just coming…

Middle Age

The impending birthday makes the poem below even more real. When I don’t blog, hop around, eat chocolate or annoy the dog, I translate. I have just translated several poems by my Slovenian poet friend who last summer wrote a lovely poem after we spent a day together with our packs at Lake Bled. The translated poem…

This is history

Today is Slovenian Cultural Holiday and on this occasion here is a little tribute to the greatest Slovenian poet. I was lucky enough to witness the greatest Slovenian poet Tomaž Šalamun read in Ljubljana’s club “KUD France Prešeren” a long time ago.

The poem is the product of the man in the water, His second book of poetry is coming up. And the girl who fearlessly followed him in there despite the grey sky is his daughter, who once…

Almost forty is a new orange

Today celebrates my zen & funloving sister. I found a fitting card and thought of leaving it at that. Nah, cute but not true. First I’ve gathered together some of my favourite photos that you took while visiting me. I like your views, they are similar to mine but more stressless. Photo: KLU Featured photo: Vatican…
