For Cee’s new photo challenge today each of my proverbial 20 photos will be graded and you’ll be able to guess which were taken in Italy and which in Slovenia. First, here is Cee’s original photo and I hope she doesn’t mind me reposting it. Our … Continue reading CFFC: Components of a Photo, week 1
Greetings from Ljubljana, the capital of Slovenia. The sky is changing all the time, which is how we like it. This way it is neither too hot nor too gloomy. First the poem of how I knew I was no longer in Tuscany. Clouds in my … Continue reading Pic and a Word #146: Clouds in my city
All this happened on the way to the cemetery. Doors are where you see them, just don’t look too closely: those of Italy are closed yet and now Slovenia is about to close its doors as well. We used to do it on November 1st, The Day … Continue reading Thursday Doors, 5/7/18: Ljubljana
Today I paid a visit to about one half of my ancestors. They are conveniently gathered at the Žale Cemetery in Ljubljana, Slovenia. It was a good day for it since today celebrates the man who took care of my grandmother so well that he … Continue reading Happy birthday, dedek!
Weekly Photo Challenge may be over but not on my blog. Here is another part of my WPC retrospective. As I’m waiting for my travelling uncle to come and take me to Slovenia for the summer, I’ve been enjoying a look back at my previous … Continue reading Favourite WPC posts, blog 2/2
This is my second post for the last WPC challenge ever, which challenged us to post our favourite photos. Who follows me will know that it won’t end here. In my last week’s post my favourite WPC posts from my first blog were gathered. Today I … Continue reading Favourite WPC posts, blog 2/1
The sudden sad news of WPC no more had me going through my first blog to select my favourite WPC photos and posts. I could say that my blogging consists of two periods: pre- and post-WPC. Before I began posting for Weekly Photo Challenge – … Continue reading Favourite WPC posts, blog 1
Going back to Bežigrad, the part of Ljubljana where I lived for 40+ years before Tuscany. How many times have I taken this same path to the bus station in all weather, past the four apartment buildings? With 10 floors, or were there 12? For … Continue reading Thursday Doors, 10/5/18: Ljubljana Bežigrad
I almost forgot to post my lines for the WPC this week. So two posts a day it must be. I’ll let the photos speak for themselves today, only locations in the captions. These are the lines of my life, only the dog leash is … Continue reading WPC: Life lines
What a great craft resource today! Hail, hail, the disobedient! I enjoyed reading the essay by poet Alice Notley so much that I almost forgot to write my poem. First, Challenge 20: “Write a poem that involves rebellion in some way.” Immediately I felt quite … Continue reading Day 20: Rebel rebel
April is half done! This means only 15 more poems. I admit: as much as it’s liberating, it’s forced even more. So much like school. Challenge 15: They suggest “writing a poem in which a villain faces an unfortunate situation, and is revealed to be … Continue reading Day 15: Half way!
My laptop compiled a gallery of smiling images, including the ones below, on its own accord. I have a feeling that it checks out the weekly WPC theme on its own without me. Obviously it has realised that I need a kick in the butt … Continue reading Day ten & WPC: Miles of smiles
Today is the last door-dedicating Thursday. Twenty more women will be honoured for making my days that much better. A reminder: so far we had two Thursdays of Women’s Doors and one all-male Thursday. With today this silly division is over and we can all … Continue reading Thursday Doors, 29/3/18: Women’s Doors 3
There is a time and a place and sometimes they come together just right. Here are some of those. I’ve encountered a problem with this WordPress theme, Edda, no matter how much I love it otherwise: the captions are too little no matter what I … Continue reading WPC: Favourite place, or is it time?
After two Thursday Doors posts full of doors for women, with one more coming up next Thursday, here is one for men. Only one, you’ll say, discrimination! But please, first, excuse this gender segregation the last few Thursdays, it was not planned. This is just … Continue reading Thursday Doors, 22/3/18: Men’s Doors
I continue my celebration of worthy women by way of doors, which I started last week. And it’s not the end. Not only will there be part 3, an all-male doors post is coming up too. Credit where credit is due: there are certain shout-outs … Continue reading Thursday Doors, 15/3/18: Women’s Doors, part 2
I will never forget the moment about five years ago when mom told me her cousin who celebrates today had started to paint. This is her work in 20 pictures. When you invited us on a visit to see what you were up to, I … Continue reading Happy art and Soul!
A greedy, gluttonous, goloso post. I couldn’t even limit it to twenty photos. It’s stronger than me, sugar is. Here is a revealing post from my first blog. I used to write quite a bit of those. Note the date, almost four years ago. Let’s … Continue reading WPC: My sweet addiction
The quintessential moment. An existential crisis. I’m going straight to hell. No, not because I’ve chosen twelve apostles – 12 photos – to represent January 2017 in my new calendar, and forsaken all the remaining images dear to my heart that by now must be … Continue reading January 2017
