Yesterday and today celebrate a couple of people but I only have eyes for one. (The other is Ed Vedder.) Every year I try to imagine how little Marco growing up in Rome had to fight for his birthday with that other guy. But he … Continue reading Ti piace Manja
Thursday Doors, 20/12/18: 2018 Recap
Norm says to do a recap of this year doorwise, and so I have. I like recaps. They help you see. It felt good going through my year in doors especially since this blog is about to close. Yes, again. I guess I’m eating up … Continue reading Thursday Doors, 20/12/18: 2018 Recap
Lens-Artists: Follow the light
The more pictures I take, the more it becomes obvious that all I do is follow the light. The best is to catch it before it says good night when they say it’s golden, so I do. This magical gallery starts in Ljubljana, Slovenia, where … Continue reading Lens-Artists: Follow the light

“Life’s too short for boring doors” could be the official slogan of our jolly little group. Let’s have more of the other kind. Small wonder that it was Norm, our chief, who wrote this in a comment to one of my Thursday Doors post on … Continue reading Thursday Doors, 27/9/18: Norm’s Doors 3

Before June is over, here is a look at last year’s as is my habit. As you will see, it had a girly feel. With all their visitors and views and vibrations, spring and summer months are so hard to pin down in twelve images, … Continue reading June 2017
Day five: Thursday Doors, 5/4/18: My Dog Sighs
In case you are not a regular around here, this April I’m doing the one-poem-a-day challenge for the first time. Today is Day five. But it’s also a Thursday, which means there will be doors. Not as many but a bit special. Elvis Costello sings … Continue reading Day five: Thursday Doors, 5/4/18: My Dog Sighs
Thursday Doors, 15/3/18: Women’s Doors, part 2

Credit where credit is due: there are certain shout-outs … Continue reading Thursday Doors, 15/3/18: Women’s Doors, part 2
Thursday Doors, 8/3/18: Women’s Day, part 1
Women, ladies, friends. Unite and take over. Usually, I don’t look people between their legs, certainly not upon the first meeting. I’m happiest if I read an excellent book or story or see a stunning photograph but don’t know the gender of the writer or … Continue reading Thursday Doors, 8/3/18: Women’s Day, part 1
