Today we conclude the visit to the open-air sculpture exhibition on the Slovenian coast, and have a look at some words in my poem for Day Two.
I chose the last tweet from the list of Top 30 tweets of 2021, the one from November 12 2021. My first stanza is this tweet in its entirety. I found it a little poem as such and just continued.
Not any word “In Old English, MEAT was food of any kind, a GIRL was a young child of either sex, a DEER was any large mammal, a HOUND was any dog, a WIFE was any woman, a FOWL was any bird, to STARVE was merely to die, and an APPLE could be any fruit.” In present Slovenian, MESO is meat, and if you read it back it’s suddenly OSEM, the number 8. Awesome. Incidentally, night is NOČ and nothing is NIČ and notch is KLIN and ČIST is clean and NOČ IMA SVOJO MOČ: Night has its might. Good night.
And now, the last half an hour of our 2017 stroll around the many sculptures, which started with this post. Between 1961 and 2001, sculptors from 30 countries created around 120 sculpture at the annual Forma Viva symposium in Slovenia, many of which are set here on the Seča peninsula to visit and admire freely.
No matter how many times I’m in Piran nearby, I only went there with my parents and amore for the first time in 2017. When the rest of us descended towards the Sečovlje saltworks with Croatia opposite, father fetched the car and drove around the peninsula to pick us up. It was not even 10 am and yet so hot. But we saw so much already that day.
Welcome to stroll along.

2021: The roads not taken
But then comes a year when all the paths, streets, roads, highways and low ways unite in not making the cut, become where we won’t go today, turn into the path not taken. (Read all.)
