WPC: Reflecthings

Here are some recent reflections: of Rome, of Bestia, of me, of me on Bestia, of trees. Most were taken with the help of the car – which reminds me that for photographic reasons I need to wash the roof too – except the last two are reflections in a puddle. We don’t have many…

V-Day for Ljubljana and Maya

Today my birthtown Ljubljana in Slovenia celebrates victory. Every year there is a walk around the city along the Path of Remembrance and Comradeship where the barbed wire used to run. Rome, on the other hand, didn’t even have a wall. Unlike some, the Roman Empire was always too huge and too powerful to need one. When amore…

Na zdravje, Alenka!

Bullfight continues into the month of May. Today celebrates my friend Alenka, the proof that internet brings closer. (Not that I need another proof, given where I am.) First let me salute all my other Taurus (girl)friends who will not be getting their own post for their birthdays (waaaah!) because there are just too many….

I do I do I do I do I do

WPC: Wonder lust – Wander list

Yes, I have my wander lust and list too. These are just some of the spots I have crossed out. My list is getting additions on an hourly basis, as soon as I see something appealing on blogs or Tweeter or Facebook. Normally I only include a destination if it’s under 3 hours’ drive from…

Three wisdom windows

Or window wisdoms, your choice. Apply as necessary, they are all true. Forgiveness is giving up all hope of having had a better past. ~Anne Lamott There is no such thing as paranoia. Your worst fears can come true at any moment. ~Hunter S. Thompson (quote reblogged from Zenkatwrites’s Blog) If you would avoid all fools…

Happy 4th birthday, Bestia!

Again a year went by and today celebrates my friend here. It came as a bit of a surprise amid running around, eating healthy with the visitor (still!) and editing too many photos, but today is Bestia’s birthday! He is older, wiser, calmer and more obedient. He has learnt that it pays off to do what…
