I had a post with this title – a nod to David Bowie – back in 2015 when it was still Weekly Photo Challenge and this is its continuation.
Today’s post will include four slideshow galleries. I did my best to end on an up note but simply can’t. It’s so hard to find any upward spirals lately.
In that old post (which you can find here) I showed you a certain bush that I keep track of, and here it is again. The last photo is from last March. I feel a certain kinship. Can it be that it’s a fig tree?
All the changes in this post affect my immediate surroundings. The bush is by the sea less than 2 km from my home, where a couple of developments have taken place. First, the path. In two photos you can see that same bush on the right. The path is wooden now and in 2020 got the facilities.
Between the path and the sea there is a house which looked like a ruin when I first met it in 2013 but has since grown into a private club so fancy that I wish never to enter it. It looks pretty though. It went like this:
And finally, our neighbour has a big property with a donkey and diminishing geese. I call them Geese of the Apocalypse. In photos you can see how they escaped one time and how they kept complaining when bestia and I passed. I haven’t seen any goose since November when the featured photo was taken.
Come to think of it, I haven’t seen him lately either.
I did think of an upward spiral though! Slovenia has already won FIVE Olympic medals in Beijing. Today a silver and bronze in snowboarding have been added to the three in ski-jumping. Hurrah!
Quite a change from 1984 when Winter Olympic Games were held in Sarajevo, in what used to be my country, Yugoslavia. That one medal by Slovenian Jure Franko in Giant Slalom saved the day (an old post about this, if you are interested, from back when I still told things). Happy national cultural day, Slovenia!

This day in my blogging history
Tomaž Šalamun is a monster.
Tomaž Šalamun is a sphere rushing through the air.
He lies down in twilight, he swims in twilight.
People and I, we both look at him amazed,
we wish him well, maybe he is a comet. (Read on.)
