Happy Branko birthday!

Today is my father’s birthday and we have been celebrating all weekend. This post will have three galleries: of dogs, of goodies, and of our past year together. It’s not every year that you hit 77, currently the most popular Slovenian number: This year we are together on your birthday for a change, but throughoutContinue reading “Happy Branko birthday!”

June 2021

Before this June gets out of hand and out of sight, here are twenty photos from last year’s in memory of the early hot post-pandemic joys. There were two especially memorable days: when I drove north towards Castiglione della Pescaia to visit a new-to-me artistic garden “Viaggio di Ritorno”, the home and playground of scrapContinue reading “June 2021”

Mercurial

Here is a nonet I wrote yesterday with nine syllables in the first line and one in the ninth. The photos are old but from the heart and slightly mercurial. Mercurial Nine is the times you cried for my love. Eight times I said no and cried back. Seven was not even when six cameContinue reading “Mercurial”

Birthday Thursday Doors 26/5/22 with three door stories

I wish to remember the good old times in hope of more to come with photos taken by my friend who celebrates today. This post is also my contribution to the second Thursday Doors Writing Challenge: three door photos called my name and caught my eye and earned some words. Today is the birthday ofContinue reading “Birthday Thursday Doors 26/5/22 with three door stories”

Sixty-six film flashes

Here are flash reviews of all 66 films that I have seen in the last three years and a half. If anybody asked me I’d say that out of all the things I do on my blog I’m proudest of a few poems and my film posts. It’s because I love this kind of shortContinue reading “Sixty-six film flashes”

Happy birthday to me

Here is an overview of past birthdays since today is one such. Yes, it happened: in the early hours of today I got the best present that no money could buy. In the first half Luka Dončić scored 27 points, the same as all of the Suns combined. It only got worse (for the latter).Continue reading “Happy birthday to me”

Just flowers

My favourite kind of flowers are those that are still growing. All these were growing last May here in southern Tuscany. Okay, the Ukraine had to win the Eurovision Song Contest. And now I’m so extremely interested in seeing whether the league and the system will let Luka and the Mavs win tonight and eliminateContinue reading “Just flowers”

Friendly Friday leading cat lines

This post is really an excuse to show Sarah the cats around my home last May. Hopefully certain lines that lead to cats will be noticeable. Whatever you do, never learn photography from me. I promised Friendly Friday Sarah to do my best in finding leading lines in my photos, but then I got distractedContinue reading “Friendly Friday leading cat lines”
