Pic and a Word #285: Tango

Tango will be the death of me “When you dance, your purpose is not to get to a certain place on the floor. It’s to enjoy each step along the way.” ~Wayne Dyer (with thanks to Selma) Dance, dance. It takes two to tango. And if it doesn’t you don’t and you know. I tellContinue reading “Pic and a Word #285: Tango”

October 2020, part 2

Here is the second part of my last October as promised. Today’s photos are from two mega trips as a reminder that I must just go. To think about it, October was the last month when we could have any amount of fun out of our municipality for more or less half a year! SoContinue reading “October 2020, part 2”

PPAC: Sant’Agnelo 3

Today’s public art post, the third with fairy-tale murals from Sant’Angelo, comes with a little reality check. As I write this (Friday, 5 pm), we have had no internet connection in home for the last twenty-four hours. And on Wednesday we were again without water most of the day. These problems are not related, neitherContinue reading “PPAC: Sant’Agnelo 3”

Friendly Friday friend

Let’s call him Rory since this is his name. It was not exactly travel, more like a job that brought me to Denmark, but travel around we did, a busload of students and I as a journalist. My last evening in the country, Rory was Irish, a writer and suddenly there. This was not aContinue reading “Friendly Friday friend”

Thursday Doors 14/10/21: Rocca dei Papi 1.

It was two weeks ago, on the day trip that included the ghost town Celleno and the fairy-tale mural town Sant’Angelo. Before we reached either we stopped at the Fortress of the Popes above Lake Bolsena, where I had never been before. I will have to go back though. The day was murky but theContinue reading “Thursday Doors 14/10/21: Rocca dei Papi 1.”

Lens-Artists PC: Extra ordinary

Our guest host I. J. gives us a tricky theme this week: the ordinary. My camera is used to catching abnormalities and the extraordinary. Where is the border between the usual and the unusual? At first I was not sure what to go after. I opened the folder of my first year in Italy, 2013.Continue reading “Lens-Artists PC: Extra ordinary”

CFFC: Curvy & archy

This is Italy for you: curves – from pasta too – and arches. I could easily use only photos from Niki’s Tarot Garden, but there is so much more. Let’s begin there though: Il Giardino dei tarocchi, or the Tarot Garden, is a sculpture park in the south of Tuscany 15 minutes from me whereContinue reading “CFFC: Curvy & archy”

October 2020, part 1

This has never happened before but now it will. There will be two October posts for my Calendar 2020. I simply couldn’t choose only 20 photos, so another 20 will follow soon. Last October I went on two such mega trips that I could post only photos from those two days. And I will, butContinue reading “October 2020, part 1”

PPAC: Sant’Angelo 2

As promised, here is the continuation of our visit to a town of which I only learned because Facebook assumed correctly that I’d like it. I hope you do too as there will be four more posts from here. Fairy-tales forever! The only thing I regretted was that I was not carrying a child orContinue reading “PPAC: Sant’Angelo 2”

This little girl is me

She was so serious. She wanted to be a detective (not enough crime in her country), a writer (pending), a movie director (in a parallel life). But what she really wanted was to live by the sea. Here it is, 1.8 km away. Hold on to your books. Have your priorities straight. Always talk backContinue reading “This little girl is me”

Thursday Doors 7/10/21: Doors for lunch

Today’s post is an immersive experience. You will be fed doors for lunch in Tuscany on a glorious September day. After yesterday’s new moon when our internet went on a 24-hour fast as well and I had to post via my phone, it’s so good to be back behind my big screen. Our connection isContinue reading “Thursday Doors 7/10/21: Doors for lunch”

Wordless Wednesday 6/10/21

I don’t have internet connection at home since yesterday and had to sign into WordPress with my phone and post from there for the first time in 8 years, just so I don’t miss my daily post going on since May. Be well and send some good net vibes. Phone sucks. ADD-IT: It’s back. YourContinue reading “Wordless Wednesday 6/10/21”

Pic and a Word #284: Vulnerable

“The vulnerable won’t help” is one of those pot idea lines that have stuck. What do you mean you don’t have these? Since I have already written a poem with this title once I will repeat it this time. It was short and not so sweet and posted in April 2018 for NaPoWriMo together withContinue reading “Pic and a Word #284: Vulnerable”

Lens-Artists PC: Can’t find a better day

As far as days go, last Tuesday was a good one, if not for the castle of the ghost town Celleno, then for us. You saw it, or better its doors, on Thursday already: Celleno, il borgo fantasma, the ghost town in Lazio between Orvieto and Viterbo. Today we look beyond the doors to seeContinue reading “Lens-Artists PC: Can’t find a better day”

CFFC: Circles and a few wheels

This is a compilation post of the kind that I love doing the most, especially since I don’t recall ever doing a circular gallery in eight years of blogging. I went quickly through all the photos that I took this year (almost 9500) and selected 24 various round shapes that caught my eye. But first,Continue reading “CFFC: Circles and a few wheels”

PPAC: Sant’Angelo 1

Today a new series begins from the town in Lazio called Sant’Angelo. Here are the first 15 minutes of our Tuesday visit when uncle, bestia and I went fairy-tale hopping. For Tuesday I had planned three stops in places from my list that were new to me: first Montefiascone above Lake Bolsena (check, the viewContinue reading “PPAC: Sant’Angelo 1”

Last photo of September 2021

I wouldn’t be me if I didn’t cheat again. There is the last photo of September too, unedited, the last in the gallery, but there is a whole bunch of others as well. You see, I figure why leave you alone with one terrible photo if I can add a few that happened before thisContinue reading “Last photo of September 2021”

Thursday Doors 30/9/21: Ghost town Celleno

I’m glad to be able to bring you the freshest doors from Tuesday when uncle, bestia and I made our wonderful three-stop trip of great variety. This was stop number two. Let’s hear you sing: “This toooown is coming like a ghoooost toooown.” ♫ Celleno in Lazio between Viterbo and Orvieto was abandoned in 1951Continue reading “Thursday Doors 30/9/21: Ghost town Celleno”
