PPAC: Forma Viva 2.

Isn’t it inviting on a hot day, this bed of stone?

First of all, happy Mother’s Day, mom! In Slovenia, and in the UK too apparently, it’s today. Twenty-three years ago you got a dog as a present, actually three, straight from the trash where we found the entire litter. We gave two away after a couple of months and kept the biggest introvert. There you are with Žak in the blogging memories. How time flies.

At the end of the first Forma Viva post last week, it looked like you were trying to escape, mom. In the first photo below it becomes clear that you were just in need of some shade. We all were, it was really hot.

The bed in the featured photo was the most striking exhibit of all, in my opinion. It must have been there for decades and yet I only saw it on that hot day in 2017 when I strolled among the sculptures of stone on the Seča peninsula on the Slovenian coast for the first time.

I don’t remember if I lay down to feel its softness but it would be exactly a thing I’d do.

Next week we will conclude this tour, find a bar and descend to the other side of the peninsula where there are saltworks.

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. I enjoyed your pictures very much. Your comment about writing interested me. If you write to be traditionally published now, you need to write to the ‘success’ formula and for strangers. Publishers don’t want to take chances on anything that may not sell.

  2. This is an extraordinary sculpture garden, enriched by your captions. I very much like the stone bed; it’s well situated too. And I salute your Mother and all the beauty and kindness she’s nurtured in this world!
