Pic and a Word #297: Ljubljana spectacle

Lately I can’t make my poems in any other way than by twisting the letters and shuffling the words around until they stick. But then again – is there any other way?

Spectre of man,
spectator of mankind,
spectacle of yourself,
receptacle of others.


Today, January 16th, is the birthday of my two happy friends, M + M. We are the same year of birth and my birthday will follow in exactly four months.

In photos my city of origin last summer on the day of my first vaccine. Ljubljana, the capital of Slovenia, is where I went to primary school and dreamed of foreign lands with one, and studied English and journalism with the other.

More birthday memories are in today’s blogging history at the end of this post. Have a good day, M + M and everybody else!

A Slovenian in Italy for love. Blogger, photographer, translator and would-be writer who would be a writer if she wrote. Plus reluctant but emerging poet. Beware.

  1. Interesting views of a city I’ve never visited. I like the train station one in particular – the way you have lined up the signs is very effective, with the bright colours of the train in the background 🙂

  2. I LOVE your twisted poems. Please feel free to share more like that. I say, those Atlases holding up the bank were wearing adequate protection where it mattered, weren’t they? Old banks always have such fascinating sculptures as part of their frontage.
