Thursday Doors, 29/11/18: Velenje Castle

Today’s doorhopping comes from the castle above Velenje, the city in Slovenia known for its socialist tradition and values. Not a bad legacy. I’m sure not everything is rosy there but the joy of the people at the recent re-election of its mayor that I … Continue reading Thursday Doors, 29/11/18: Velenje Castle

Thursday Doors, 22/11/18: Door soup for Lens-Artists PC

Pic and a Word #157: El pastel

El Pastel It’s as if the pinks and blues only get to play early in the morning or late in the day. Whoever came up with this gender segregation must be slightly upset every time the sun sets or rises and the colours display how … Continue reading Pic and a Word #157: El pastel

Lens-Artists: Look up to beauty

An afternoon in Italy in late September. All one could want from life, really. I met my visitors in Orvieto, Umbria, and then we went to Bolsena by the lake (in Lazio), the town where I haven’t strolled yet. It was a great place for … Continue reading Lens-Artists: Look up to beauty

Pic and a Word #153: My emptiness

I shall never forget how upon moving to Italy my parents told me that I lived in the middle of nowhere. Finally. Emptiness. Where are you? When will you return? I turn my back when they arrive and run home to emerging nothingness when they … Continue reading Pic and a Word #153: My emptiness

Today a special door selection from my first blog, of doors that caught the eye of our Thursday Doorman.  “The day I set foot in Rome and start exploring for doors… well I don’t know if I’ll ever leave the place.” This was the comment … Continue reading Thursday Doors, 13/9/18: Norm mix I.

To Trieste

Just in time I remembered that I’ve got a poem to write for the A and I Poetry Challenge. Luckily I was in Trieste yesterday where poetry tops the daily news. The challenge tells us to “turn on the radio to any channel. Write a poem … Continue reading To Trieste

Pic and a Word #147: Organic

Every time I return to this garden that my parents tend in Piran, Slovenia, where their surprising second home has grown, I wonder what we have done to deserve it.  The Garden of Eden and Druga* Permaculture, they call it. It’s been explained as live … Continue reading Pic and a Word #147: Organic

Thursday Doors, 28/6/18: Rome

Today, a collection of Roman doors without much ado or words. I’ve been driving almost for seven hours today, the last part on the curvy road up in the Slovenian hills in an attempt to circumvent a road block. The air was fresh. I’m almost … Continue reading Thursday Doors, 28/6/18: Rome
