They say that nobody has walked the path from your direction and in your shoes yet. Make the most of it.
First the thought that comes courtesy of Frank Reynolds who is a fictional character, while I am real and you ain’t seen nothing yet. 😉
And now, before I take you to a night above the town, I wish to repeat what Tina says in her post for this week’s Lens-Artists photo challenge: “I was fortunate to have been born into a supportive family in a stable country during a time of peace and prosperity.” Seriously, isn’t this the most we, the fortunate ones, can say?
I was also fortunate to be able to accompany my poet friend to Celje, the third biggest Slovenian city, more precisely to the old Castle above the city last month. It hosted the award ceremony where the major national poetry award “Veronika Award” was presented to the poet with the best collection of poetry in the past year. My friend was one of the five nominated poets.
Four of them plus their dedicated drivers had a drink together before the event. We took our time because we knew that they wouldn’t start without us.
I won’t say that the path that led there was twisted, complicated or full of dangers, actually it was a lovely evening, but it did include some peculiar scenes. See it for yourselves, read the story in the captions and view the event from the front row. It pays off to mingle with the poets, and I mean the sparkle transfer most of all.
