I’m going to include: a quotation (instead of my usual Pic and a Word poem) and thank Patrick for it, a whole lot of photos from my recent travel back home and then back home again on top of a giant (such a luxury having so many homes!), and a short video of a Slovenian giant having fun in Dallas.
First a gentle another-kind-of-giant warning. She sounds like she knows what she is talking about. But she often did:
People who deny the existence of dragons are often eaten by dragons. From within.
― Ursula K. Le Guin
Now, let’s have a look from the top of a giant. After having arrived in Slovenia with two normal-sized Flixbuses from Rome, on return I spent four hours on the top deck of a double-decker bus, which is how long it took us from Ljubljana to Venice. I sat on the right, just behind the windscreen, and for a while the view was able to distract me from my book.
After that, in Mestre, it was another switch back to the smaller-sized bus and my book (His Dark Materials, Book II) that accompanied me till Rome. There might not be giants and dragons in there, but there are talking (and fighting) Polar bears, witches, angels and daemons. And much courage, beauty and love. And Dust.
More info in the captions. Bear in mind that these photos ain’t gonna win any prizes. Post worthy or not, this was my travel.
And finally, talking about giants, looks like somebody was having some Bull fun yesterday. 😀 The 19-year-old Slovenian Luka Dončić, NBA rookie playing for Dallas Mavericks, in his third NBA game drew a gasp from the crowd, and then did some other stuff too. Okay! Great things in store and all that.
