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
Eerie, cautionary, out of time. When water comes a-knocking. Three weeks ago, when on a visit to my birthtown Ljubljana, the capital of Slovenia, the annual floods hit the part of the city that is built on the marshes, hence it is still called Barje, … Continue reading WPC: Growing water
Happy birthday, unknown lady who approached us exactly one year ago in Ljubljana, Slovenia, my birth town, asking us if we could hold up a letter printed on a sheet of paper so that she could take a photo of us, and all letters together … Continue reading Happy birthday, happy people
::: Samos No luck this time: we will have to return to the rent-a-scooter for the third time. This one is unreliable too. Sometimes it just won’t start. And Samos is a long island, with only one gas station in the middle. Sure enough, once … Continue reading Police in the streets
